Honestly I had the best time ever in LA for Anime Expo!
I adored that I was able to be with Jimmy 24/7, for four days straight. I could not of had a better person to be with, I simply love him so much! :D
WE HAD A BLAST! We got cranky once and awhile... due to just being tired (and he drank lots of energy drinks, like two a day or so, seriously... and that is 'nothing' for him oi ><:) or hot (which was me, I hate being hot omg ><;) But honestly, I would not want to be cranky with anyone else ;p. Here are some photos that I took. I honestly do not want to post each and every one. So here is the album. :D http://s15.photobucket.com/albums/a360/hsailormoon4/Ax08/
Then let's see, Oh I bought tons of goodies. Lots of manga! :D (which I rarely buy and I spent a pretty penny lol about 60 or so on all of it) Plushies (designed by the convention, of a kitty and bunny, plus come with their own pins). Two figurings, a cute small bento box (it had a black cat (from Kiki's Delivery Service) and it sooo reminded me of Duo so I had to have it!) I bought some cuteeee pins, oh and I bought an anime series (season one)~ xDDD I should just take a picture of all of it later! xD I loved it!
I kept trying to tell myself that, if I don't spend money here, I can spend the money on yarn... but the anime won~ xD Last time I went with Jimmy (2 years ago). When it came to the shopping, he spent tonsssssss of money, and I spent like next to nothing. Now this time around it has switched around~ xD (hahaha) It was great.
The Panels that we went to were a blast, I am a bigger fan of TokyoPop comp. more so now! xD We each won free stuff from some of the panels we went to. We went to 2 concerts~ oh they were fun. Then.... ummm.... oh AX Idol! xD Oh my goodness it was soooo much fun to go to! Voice acting is tough~~~ xD It was so much fun, I am glad we went to it on a whim, and we are so addicted to it, we have to go to it each year from now on. Then we watched some awesome anime! xD Oh it was fun!
The one thing we did not go to (because we went to pretty much all the major events) was the 'dances' (which I was ok with ;p I remember highschool and junior high, I doubt it has changed much since then... tons of people moving in a big blob in the middle of the room, dark, misty 'for mood but you know its sweat ew', tooooooo loud music... and dirty sweaty people, which means it is going to be super hot in there. Um. No. xP I pulled the ' I am too tired to go' card with Jimmy on the last night. But honestly it was true I was deaddddd tired. I slept through the Neon Genesis Evangelion showing, which was soooo awesome! But I was sooo tired I couldn't sit up and try to watch it, so a half an hour into it, I crashed between the seats on the floor the whole time. So to go to a hot sweaty dirty loud room... no thanks, Sorry Jimmy. (He was wanting to go to it at least once, sorry)
I did some sock knitting there~ :D Not a lot, but just a bit, close to finishing the cuff... I left it behind one time and omg I could have done so much knitting, I was seriously kicking myself, it was lame.
But overall, I would love to go again and I cannot wait for next year. I like that they have the LA Convention Center, it works out just right for how big this event is. I reached 43k this year I think! xD Crazy~ :D I loved it~
