I really wanted to get to AX this year on the Friday by way of leaving work early...that didn't work though...and I ended up getting out of work WAY late. Though I heard that Friday was pretty fun. Boo-urns!
I DID get there early on Saturday morning and I had a great weekend!!! There were so many great cosplayers!! I interviewed some of them (along with the Psychotaku) and the video should be up pretty soon! I found the awesome-est wall scroll (I HATE wall scrolls, by the way) of Konata from Lucky Star getting an email about the second season of Haruhi and celebrating with Tsukasa and Kagami. It has her Haruhi cosplay costume in the background along with Kagami reading the Haruhi manga. It is a great crossover.
Also, we hit the Breaking Into Animation panel which was really interesting (see the two-part video on the Psychotaku homepage!). And we passed out flyers for our panel on Sunday. We went through 500 flyers in about 20 minutes! I think next time we need to pass out about 1,000!!
Here is a pic of me from Saturday (the fountain is in the courtyard at my apartment):
And then there was Sunday....Panel day!!! Yay! We were pretty nervous most of the day so we didn't really do much except for interviewing cosplayers. My favorites were a little boy dressed up as a Bleach character that wouldn't speak and a guy dressed up as Russell from UP (my favorite charater EVER!!!).
The panel went great, we had about 70 people there and most of them didn't even know who we were. One funny thing was that the volunteer that was working the room knew who we were from our time on ScrewAttack and he had some pretty good questions for us. It was cool that the questions we were asked this time around were SO different from the Fanime questions. Some people came up and asked for our autographs and some people even came up and thanked us for the entertainment! It was a great vibe!!
Here is a pic of our audience!
I want to thank everyone that came to our panel! We had a great time! And we hope to see you all next year!
