Barcelona MangaCon 2015
This year we were at level 5 in Palace 4, in the exhibition area dedicated to Japanese influenced Star Wars products. We were delighted to have our stand next to Star Wars illustrator Tsuneo Sanda, with his wife Sachiko Sanda, who delighted us with not only great artwork but much laughter and kindness.
During the days of Saló we collaborated with Planeta Cómic, by sharing our members among its many interesting displays of both manga and Star Wars comics. We also had two parades: Saturday afternoon where the Jedi’s lightsabers filled the dark, and on Sunday morning where we were also accompanied by attendees, especially children, dressed as their favourite characters from the epic saga.
At our stand, we provided different activities for both adults and children. We had drawing contests, music sessions with Han Ares DJ, photocalls with the characters, the antics of our Jawas and a display exhibition of material created by our members and photographs of our social visits and charity events. We also raised money for our associated charities by selling Star Wars Catalunya merchandise and this year, we would like to thank SD Toys, who kindly donated four figures of the Star Wars Black Series for the fund raising raffle.
These are the first batch of photos of Saló del Manga of Barcelona 2015. Gradually we will expand with new photos and with the photo shared with us by the Attendees of the Salo.
