Took me a while to
get the costume on. The hair was the main problem. When I did
Orihime at the SSU Masquerade Ball, my roommate did my hair.
Amethyst Angel made this special commission for me (thanks!).
Justin and Mel gave me the idea to do Orihime. So Anime Central
would be the debut for this costume.
preparation, I let Robert and Kat take my laptop so they can do
para para routines. After about an hour of preparation, I went
downstairs to make my Orihime debut. I had a few pictures taken of
me right by the restaurant. I also ran into Mel who was dressed up
as a pretty gothic bride. She introduced me to her friends as,
"the girl who looks like Orihime." ^_^; I headed over to
the convention center to take several Orihime pics and went back
to the Hyatt
stopped by the Sakura Taisen panel 'cause I promised Maya Okamoto I
would. I made my entrance and when Maya first laid eyed on me, and I
laid eyes on her, we glomped each other. ^^ Then a million
photographers took our picture. *^^* The panel went very well. There
was talk about Sakura Taisen 5 and the director's personal life. The
songwriter sang a snippet of his song. I also ran into Moo and Ziggy.
Ziggy was in his silverlicious DoA costume. I rarely attend panels,
but this one was worth my time. ^_^v There were a few quotes worth
noting about from the ST crew (see quotes page for details!). To end
the panel, I took a picture with the ST crew and that was that.
Seeing how time
flies fast, I went to Anime Idol to give Kate my support.
Wonderful Utena live dub! *^^* Alyx and Moses were there, so
joined them in the festivities. It was a very good show. Kate made
it into the finals for the big BAAF round. I ran into a girl named
Jenny who noticed I had bought several X dvds, and went Subaru
fangirl over there. ^_^; I met Cpt. Biggles (finally) and chatted
up with him.
then decided to go out to dinner to celebrate. Jenny and Estevan
joined us. Albert caught me just in time for another photo op, and I
caught him dressed as Ohgami. (ne...Al...you always get me when I'm
trying to get food! *lol*) So Kate and company decide to head over
to Benningans. It wasn't far down from the con center. We crammed
everyone into her blug bug and got on the freeway. It was a
goooooooooood dinner. What a break from cafeteria food. Most of the
time we chatted about future careers and amateur careers. Evan was
sweet to take a few pics of me as Orihime in the restaurant.
dinner, Jenny and I were dropped off back at the hotel. She had to
go to the karaoke room, and I had to make it to the masquerade to
see my friends' skits. I found a seat right by Moo (along with
Kamineko-san). We were seated in the back, and the sound didn't get
to us very well. It was the same old masquerade, pocky skits etc. I
did like the X Weekend and Kakyou's, Troppy's Masquerade Cliche skit
(despite the sound problem at the end), Bree's Domo-kun skit, and
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. However, most of the time, Moo and I
would be playing with Kamineko-san.
quite dissapointed I missed out on Sora, Robert, Kristy, and
Stephy's Slayers skit 'cause I wanted to see how the Filia Dragon
turned out. So, I looked for them backstage and in the audience. I
finally ran into them and apologized I came in a little late to see
their skit. After the masquerade, I went around taking pictures. I
did my traditional Saturday nite thing on the piano. There was this
one girl who was playing pretty sweet.
I went upstairs to the room for the partay. I went downstairs
to check on Sora, and we had a talk about certain issues going on at
the con. While we were trying to retrieve the Lina Inverse costume,
the fire alarm went out. oy vey. We stuck around the party for a
little bit. Julia stopped by for a little bit and I introduced her
to some of the AVAs in there. I stuck around for a bit. I had a Mint
Jula courtesy of the Dub This folks.
back downstairs to check out the dance, but it was the same old
rave, so I went back upstairs. Bill was on his way out of the room
whistling a tune. Grumpy Old Man stepped out his room to tell him to
shut up. Both of were like, "WTF is his problem?" We also
find out that the same Grumpy Old Man whinned about the party and
had it come to a close. I was quite angered by this because this
incident really let my friends down. We then discussed about it at
the table among other issues going on at the convention. Finally,
half of them had to go because we couldn't have non registered
people in our room. So Estevan, Jenny, and I went over to his place.
We talked about voice acting while having a bit of cream soda vodka.
(Yes, folks, I was sober...only had a little bit...Victoria doesn't
like getting wasted at cons). We then said our goodnites.
into Kristy who was organizing the flyers out angst. I ran into
Lionel and Albert, and we said our goodnights. I went back to the
room and uploaded my digicam photos on my laptop and went to sleep.
