hahah, dooood. i totally do that with this patch i have on my schoolbag, the Ashford logo from Code Geass. when people ask what it is, i sort of hesitate, then say it's a school crest.... which it is, kind of. >_>

lol, closet otaku


anywho, the more i think about it, the more something like that would be awesome above a fireplace mantle or something.

you could say it's modern art, hahaha.

I totally love the Lilith plate thing, especially the Longinus cutlery. I wish there were more pics of that exhibition around.

I'm guessing it's heavy?
It says in the article that it weighs 28-kg (62-pound)

Crazy is not nearly enough said. I mean really, how much of an otaku you can be? The spear looks pretty neat though I doubt it's actually worth that much.

That's pretty cheap, considering they had to get it down from the moon.


Haha.

Would also like some more anime related weapons to go with my current collection (zacks buster sword, sephiroths masamune and ichigos bankai so far). I just love large pointy things.

As Xinil mentioned. Learn how to make them and flog cheap imitations for a tonne of money on ebay :P

Sep 8, 2007 9:02 PM by OriginalName

I would enjoy having such a thing. But I doubt I could ever bring myself to spend that much. Not that I have anywhere near that kind of money anyway, but still..

Sep 8, 2007 6:55 PM by Where0Meets15

Jesus...I need to go learn how to do metal casting...

Sep 8, 2007 6:19 PM by Xinil

Whoa

Sep 8, 2007 5:01 PM by d388

Wow! That is money well spent!
