Oh lexxie

convention 2

Ro and I are on a break between events and have retreated to the room to rest our feet/backs because neither of us are really in shape for as much walking/standing we did this morning.
We got up and walked around out of costume first thing this morning and it was so funny because I had on my Rikkai Dai jacket and I was taking a lost cell phone to the desk when I heard someone yelling "Rikkai!" I turned around and found that there was a girl dressed as one of the Hyotei players running towards me. That was just really cool so we talked to her for a while before coming back up to the room to get dressed in our Bleach costumes. Ro forgot her hat at home (baka) and didn't want to do her make-up but we went back out in full costume.
We ran into a couple of other Bleach characters and talked with them for a bit - finding out that there's going to be a Bleach group photo shoot on Saturday, so we've made plans to go for that. We both got glomped twice by gals who said we were dressed as their favorite characters. :) We both figure that we'll be hugged an awful lot this weekend.
We did some shopping, but the marketplace really isn't that great this time around. I got a couple of new shirts and Ro got way too many figurines that she has absolutely no space for at home. At least I know what to get her for Christmas - a bookshelf for her collection.
The two events we went to earlier today were Naruto/character whiffle ball and character chess. The chess was a lot more fun than the whiffle ball. I think we're going to get dressed again in an hour or so and head back down for the opening ceremonies, although most of what we really want to do starts tomorrow. Ro is currently lying on her bed staring out the window telling me how a cloud is evolving as it moves across the sky. Somehow I think she's getting a little bored. Maybe I should tell her to play with her figurines for a while. *Grins*

More tomorrow once I get back from the presentations and discussions. There is a fan fiction and yaoi discussion tonight/tomorrow night that I might go to. I don't know how good they would be and the ones that I've been to in the past have failed miserably. But I'll probably give them a try.

wiki update

I finished the Prince of Tennis section and added in the other shinobi. I'll keep working on it over the next few weeks.

The saddest part, Ro is sitting on the next bed and I just sent her an email telling her to take a look at the wiki. It makes me wonder if technology has gone too far.

Boise con with pics

It seems to me that when you have the word ceremony in an event that it would be logical to at least reherse before people actually show up. They totally didn't do that for the opening ceremony here. It was almost embarassing for me to sit through it. But they did have a really cool cosplay demo near the end that was totally worth staying for. They into'd the various guests for the convention and Ro about had a heart attack when Johnny Yong Bosch http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Yong_Bosch came out onto the stage. Now she's driving me nuts because we went down onto the floor after everything was over to talk to him for a second. I made her give me the camera so she could have a picture of herself with him. Since then she's been squeeing like mad and bouncing around the room (and down the hall, in the elevator, in the lobby, on the street and in the restaurant) since. I'm waiting for her to send me the picture from her computer over on the next bed so I can post it up here.
So, here's me at the Capital Building





(GO RIKKAI DAI!!!!!)


Me in my Ukitake costume.



I'm going to make a photo album on my photobucket page for the rest of them so you guys don't get innundated with them. http://s253.photobucket.com/albums/hh41/woodlandpugs/Boise%20Anime%20Oasis%202010/



And I've obtained a stalker. *sighs* There's a young girl here that is totally in love with Ukitake and Kyoraku, but mainly Ukitake. She not only glomped me, she tried to take me home. It almost makes me want to go out in my Rikkai costume tomorrow so I can have a day off.


Ro is refusing to send me the picture. So I'll get it in with the rest of the pics from today and post it tomorrow. She's still touchy about her weight.
