Anime Los Angeles Day Two

Huzzah! Finally, right? Well, it will be worth the wait because of the awesome videos. :)


Day Two

We all got a good night’s sleep in order to get up ~*bright and early*~ to change into our group cosplay. Both Vince and I woke up early to work out. He left earlier to go jog around the surrounding neighborhood while I hit the small hotel gym. Exercise is important! I did about 40 minutes of running on the treadmill before moving onto weight training when Vince met up with me and went back to the room to check our roommates who were either still sleeping or just getting up.

It was a bit surreal to see the pool area go from empty to completely PACKED in those two hours. Friday had been a little low-key due to many people having school or work that day so of course Saturday is the big no-holds party day from real life. It’s just really amazing how well this space works for an anime convention.

We all got dressed as characters from the series Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan (aka Buldgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan). Basically it’s a very silly and pervy comedy series about a high school boy and his guardian angel…who beats him to death and brings him back to life in crazy ways. We had cosplayed this series at Fanime but our friend Alice wanted to be part of the group as another character so we decided to do it again for ALA.

After we were all finally done (I have a habit of always misplacing my socks), we went downstairs and ran into Space Pirate Queen and MissTea! Both girls had decided to drop by for a half day so we chatted it up as we watched the youngsters filter by. It was also here that I discovered that Kelly also knew MissTea from high school. Small world…
