Whatever I can do to help.
As soon as I get the OK I'll be posting the map of the Exhibitor hall so people can see where booths are.

Final Fantasy Six cast members and monsters (Edgar, Gogo, Mog, Chocobos, Cyan, Kefka, Celes, Esper Terra, and monsters)

Also, what anime couples do you like from any anime?
Oh man. Uh.... Ifurita and the hero from El Hazard.
Haruhi and Tamaki from Ouran are the only real couple I've ever shipped in an anime.
.....though I am "pro Heron" if you know what I mean....

What kind of merchandise do you usally tend to go for?
Keychains, figures, comics, small plushies

Final Fantasy?

Colored on the computer but still hand drawn, with colored pencils coming in second.


I like artists alley but the only time I buy merch other than actual DVDs is gifts for other people.  I have been given a Tonberry plushy and a Mario keychain though.

I don't think I single anyone out, I do like characters and creatures from Fruits Basket, Azumanga Daioh, FMA and GTO.

Also, what anime couples do you like from any anime?
I don't have any preference.

What kind of merchandise do you usally tend to go for?
I like jewelry for myself, and cute little things like keychains and pushes as gifts.

What anime do you look for the most when it comes to merchandise?
I think I look for old school gaming more than anime but I do like the ones I listed above.

Colored on the computer and printed on gloss paper, marker, colored pencil for fanart?
I don't buy prints of any kind just cause I know they'll get beat up  on the trip home.

I hope I was at least somewhat helpful. I plan on getting a table myself and  I'm looking for some of the same info.

I look for any character I recognize...  If it's someone obscure it has to be a very pretty picture to catch my attention.  Really what would catch my attention (and my wallet) is some cute shohou-ai material.  There's so much good shounen-ai and yaoi type art around, I would love to see something like a bookmark with Tomoyo and Sakura hugging, or a print of Kaorin and Sakaki from Azumanga tied together for the three-legged race, when Kaorin was in heaven.  Cute, not pervy.
