Best con pic ever Best con pic ever

Coffee pot ramen...for when you just can't afford hotel food and nothing else is open. Taken by "Lady-hinata" on the PAF boards. I just had to share with everyone.

First of all, I want to say that PAF rocked my world. It's the best con I've been to, ever. Okay, sure, it wasn't the biggest or anything. It's still my favorite. It helped to have something to do all the time, so I never got bored or wandered aimlessly. I had purpose, and responsibility, and I got to see awesome cosplayers, and I got to show off, and I got credit for what I did, and I got to make Anakin happy. I met some great people. I have memories that will bring happiness for a long time to come.

And Anakin has more fans. hehehe He's going to be a professional cosplayer some day, if he has his way. lol (Since I didn't have a camera, I asked people to share pics of him on the boards on this thread: http://phoenixanimefest.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=266 ) (Oh, and this pic is priceless, from when we were in the room awaiting judging: http://s130.photobucket.com/albums/p242/Mystic2031/?action=view¤t=PhoenixAnimeFest027.jpg )

So, let's get down to details.

Thursday night )

Friday started at 6 am )

...and then there was a Saturday! )

Sunday! )

So, that was the con. That's not even all of it. It was super fun, the hotel itself was a nightmare to deal with though and LIED about things like parking, and didn't have clue one on how to handle something like an anime con, and didn't provide food and wouldn't let *us* provide food for anyone not guests/staff... -_- They suck and we wouldn't go back if they invited us to...which isn't likely. They were the low point. =/ There was drama in the vendor's room that some people wouldn't believe, too. Other than that, it was pretty cool!

I could go on and on. I won't. I keep thinking of more things that I want to talk about, but...it's past bed time! How did that happen? I started this in the afternoon. @_@


I had birthday money. Yay! So, I picked up four posters (3 Tsubasa and 1 FFX), a little Tidus figure for Anakin, a couple of Pokemon (Polywrath and Meowth) plushies for Anakin, a couple of badges (Darth Maul and "Come to the Dark Side...we have cookies!!!"), Fruits Basket #12, Tsubasa #4 (because I had 1-3 and 5-7 by accident), +Anima #1, and Loveless #1. The last two manga were freebies from Tokyopop, and Anakin got a couple of things free from them too.

Thank you, and goodnight.

All in all, in case you wanted to know, Phoenix Anime Fest was the most fun I've ever had at a con. It was a great experience. (then again, I LIKE working hard to make things happen, and knowing the inside stories)

It is probably some huge sin to put whipped cream on top of your coffee, especially if you didn't add a packet of hot chocolate to it this time.

Oh well! It was yummy. ♥

my PAF costumes:


Anakin's PAF costumes:

Inuyasha 99% done (have to put the ears on the wig still)
Rare Truffle 90% done (have to add the spikey red x to the heartless heart, add the yellow eyes to the black mask, and add a strap to keep the mushroom hat on his head)

Excuse me while I go cut out a couple of yellow shiny circles and then do dishes so I don't come home to some new life form in the kitchen when we come back home. hehehe

Enjoy your weekend, folks!

If I'd had any doubts about how important my job is to the con, they'd be gone now. I just had half the senior staff over, braving laryngitis to get all the last minute changes to the schedule taken care of.

Of all the stupid times to get sick. @_@ I hope I'm better by Thursday!

(Everybody! Come to Phoenix Anime Fest next weekend! It's going to ROCK!)

I'm mildly freaked out, because everyone keeps telling me how well organized the schedule is for PAF. I've never done this before, and I've been kinda thrown in head first in some of it. I *really* feel like I'm in over my head, but at the same time I feel like it's just too easy...

That's all. I don't want to jinx things, but this is going entirely too well. Expected chaos and rescheduling and last minute things, but it's not that difficult to do. So, why do people keep saying I'm so good at it? O.o Aaaaaah! I'm too new at cons to get compliments yet! XD

Right. Back to upping my word count after two days of total slacking. ^_^
