Aniventure 2012 Day 1

Aniventure is the biggest anime event in Bulgaria, organized by the National Anime and Manga club Nakama. It has been held for 7 years in a row and this year was my 5th Aniventure. Today was the first day of the event, tomorrow is the second day and I decided to do separate posts of the two days, because they are very different. 
Aniventure 2012 is held in party center 4th kilometer, which is a very convenient place for conventions, because it has enough and spacious rooms for everything to fit in. Tickets are 10 lv (~5 euro) for one day and 15 lv (~8 euro) for the two days. 
Ok, so this is my personal experience from day one.
I woke up at about at about 5:00 in the morning, because I was very anxious since I didn't know who will be with me during the day and I was worried that I might end up going alone. That didn't happen and I am very glad of the fact.
I went to the party center very early so that I could get inside earlier and buy some merchandise, which I eventually did :D You will see what I got below. After I bought what I liked I went to the opening ceremony, which was very amusing and they had chosen my favourite hosts - Hipi and Dora. They really know how to entertain the audience. During the day I visited the Pixel art workshop and the Kirigami workshop, which were fantastic. I also visited some of the lectures and I really liked the one about Wonderflex - a material, from which you can make cosplay armor and other things. At the end of the day was the AMV contest and I really enjoyed the AMVs this year.
I want to thank especially to my colleges Rali, Ili and Suzuki, who were with me during the day.
