What a Fangirl Is~
Whatever I feel like writing about on a daily basis...Or month, depending on my mood.
AX 2010 Report!
Okay, now that I have time, I can actually type out my AX journal for everyone to read!

Day 0:
The gang and I decided before hand that we wanted to pick up our badges the day before so we all gathered at Seiryn's house. Once we all showed up, we ate and then headed out to LA. When we got there it was only 10 AM so we decided to go to Little Tokyo and walk around. We went to various shops and bookstores, and it was a lot of fun. After eating lunch and walking around a bit more, it hit 2:30 and so we decided to head to the LACC and wait in line to pick up our badges. Waiting in line was so BORING as my feet hurt and there was SO MANY people. Eventually, got into the thing around 5:30 and finished up at 6. Once we all got back home, I went to my room and started packing. Around 10 Mana arrived, and around 11, Daniel and Tay Tay arrived and we all sat in my living room, waiting for Ed to come get us. At midnight, he arrived and we all gathered up our stuff and headed to his house.

Day 1:
We didn't leave till 4 AM, due to the fact most of us were hungry, and we had to wait for most of the guys to get up from sleeping. Eventually, we all left and we chatted in the car, excited for what we were going to do. When we got to the parking lot, we all got out and I got ready in my Rubedo/Jr. cosplay. After waiting for what it seemed like FOREVER, we were able to get in and get tickets for all the free events. After that, we RUSHED over to Nokia Theater to watch Opening Ceremonies, and it was AMAZING. After that was over, we all seperated, and I even got to see people I haven't seen in ages. Ernoma and Leanne-McGrand. My two other friends were dressed as Spirit and Stein, and they were AMAZING looking. :3 I was sorta sad that I didn't match with them since I was Rubedo, but since I was going to be Kid on day 2, I didn't let it get me down too much. I went to the Exhibit Hall with Spirit and Stein and we had a lot of fun looking around at the various merchandise. When it hit around 3 or so, we went to the hotel to check in, and then to rest. Around 8:30 the AMV contest was starting but we still had to get ready so we did that, and then headed to the Nokia Theater. It was around 9:30 that we arrived, and as we went to sit down, we had to go through people to sit down, and I felt a little bad that we showed up late. Next year we are arriving EARLY so we can sit down and not have to go through people. After the AMVs, we went to Denny's and ate, then headed back to the hotel to sleep for the next day.

Day 2:
I ATTEMPTED to wake up before 9 AM so that I could go to the Bleach: Ulquiorra vs. Ichigo Directors Cut thing and then the Bleach Panel, but I was SO tired from the other day. So instead, I got there around 11 and went straight to the Exhibit Hall again once I found Spirit and Stein. This time, I was Death the Kid so we matched and I was happy. People wanted pictures with the three of us while we were in there, and we gladly posed for them. After wandering around the hall for a while, it was almost 4 so I headed to the Soul Eater Gathering even though I was a little bit late due to things that happened before. I had a lot of fun at the Gathering and Seiryn took a bunch of pictures for me. Afterwards, Stein and Spirit went to go eat after walking in the Exhibit Hall again, so I headed to the FUNimation Sneak Peek Panel to see what FUNi was going to bring out this year. In there, I got to sit next to a Medusa, Eruka, and Crona that I found in line. They were nice enough to save a seat for me. Afterwards, I hung out with them, while waiting for Seiryn, Spirit, and Stein to come back. Once they all came back, Medusa, Eruka, and Crona left and the four of us went to the Laser Spectacular show. That was REALLY fun even though I kept messing up the moves. XD Afterwards, we went to Denny's AGAIN to eat, then hung out, and then went back to the hotel to sleep.

Day 3:
In the morning, I cosplayed as Rubedo again, since Crispin Freeman was going to be at AX to do a Haruhi Suzumiya signing with the other VA's that worked on the show. While I was getting ready, the gang and I watched Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's and made fun of the show, because 4Kids is full of crack and LULZ. At the Haruhi signing, Johnny, Stephanie, and Wendy signed my poster, while Crispin signed my Xenosaga Ep II. Happy days were to be had. :'D Once that was over, I walked around in the hall and went to the Artist Gallery, and bought a book from Cosplay-in-America since my cosplay idol Malindachan is in there, then went with Daniel back to the hotel to eat. I had only a few minutes to rest for the Gaia Online Panel was going to start and I didn't want to be late. When I got inside the JW Marriott, this guy asked for my picture, for he recognized me and said that Rubedo was his favourite character from Xenosaga. The Panel was a lot of fun, and I got to see some friends who I hadn't seen from High School. During the panel, I jumped up too hard, and I ripped my Rubedo pants. ;x; Eventually, I left early because I wanted to make the Gurren Lagann movie, which I ended missing anyway due to the fact I wanted to find Spirit and Stein and when I asked the guy about the line, he told me it was totally full and no more people could get in. Course, turns out I could've gotten in, but oh well. The one good thing about missing it was that I got to meet another Death the Kid (TheDarkDeath) and Black*Star (pssty) cosplayers. They were a lot of fun to talk to and I got to try riding Kid's skateboard. I failed of course because I don't know how to ride a skateboard. XD Eventually, we went back to the hotel and while Mana and I went to bed early to go to AX early on the last day, Daniel and Tay Tay went out and partied.

Day 4:
I didn't get to stay for long, since my friend Edward thought he had work the next day and so we had to leave. While crossing the street, I ran into TheDarkDeath and pssty again! It was awesome and I said hi to them. I was carrying around cupcakes since they were originally for Todd Haberkorn if he was able to come to AX, but since he couldn't go, I gave them out to any America cosplayers. One America even gave me a cupcake for giving her a cupcake! To make the most out of the day, we ate lunch at California Pizza Kitchen, then rushed to the Exhibition Hall where I bought things. I got mostly art and 2 Xenosaga Doujinishi's, since there wasn't anything else I wanted or was WAY too expensive. (I found Teddie from Persona 4, but he was 50 bucks and not very big, so it wasn't worth it. ToT). After spending my last 5 bucks on 3 pins and a Russia bookmark, I got out and it was time for all of us to go home. As we drove away, I was sad that I had to leave, but I had a lot of fun. I'm excited for 2011!

Phew! That was a lot to get out. Next year I'll try and write down the things that happened ON THAT DAY, so that I know what to write. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading my long journal!
