We got back to the hotel in time to drop Angelica off and leave again for the 2 hour drive to Davis, where Warp 11
would be playing at the G Street Pub! I didn't take any pictures this time, and I really should have, but oh well. The guys were all dressed as crewmen from the "Mirror, Mirror
" episode of the original series. Not having seen the original series (except for one or two episodes, plus the Tribbles episode), I don't know this one, but Karl was dressed as Alternate Kirk, Jeff was spouting AA diatribe, I'm not sure what Brian was, but he was dressed in a red polyester jumpsuit. Kiki looked divine in a short pink poofy skirt with pink fishnets, a pink top that had a planet on it, and a hard pink "wig". I dunno what she was, but it was reminiscent of Space Channel 5.
After the show, we drove back to the hotel and sorta crashed. Of course, we hadn't had time to eat, except for some light snacking in her car on the way over (dried apricots and a Nutri-Grain bar for me, peanuts for Nicky).
Which brings us to Saturday morning. Woke up (surprisingly) at 8:30! Christine was on her way out to a 9am panel, Nicky and Angelica were getting ready for a panel for the fandom that shall remain nameless in this journal, which started at 10. After they left, I got ready and went down to the dealer's room, where I bought two bleach shitajiki. They had better ones here than at Otakon. I was looking for a cute zipper pull to put on my phone strap since the wristband part has come off and will not stay on. What I found instead was the complete series of Samurai Deeper Kyo
on DVD for only $40, which I didn't end up buying, although it was very tempting. They also had the Utena movie for $20, which I was also tempted by.
We went back to the room to change into the Doctors' outfits, who then made an appearance at the GW Meet & Greet Panel. It was lotsa fun to see suzume_sparrow
, and ponderosa121
with her guy J in a skirt! After the panel we moved on to the couch near the dealer's room where G, J, Heero and Duo proceeded to take naughty photos for an audience! Most of which were not gotten with my camera, so I'll have to get klingonpoo
to send some of them to me!
After that, the Doctors disappeared, but we all got together to have a late lunch in Duo & Heero's room, which was very nice. Everyone went to wait on line for the AMVs, but I generally hate AMVs, so I was on my way back to the hotel room to pick up my laptop and go hang out in the lobby, when gokumew2
called me! Yay for coincidences! I went over to her room and hung out with her and her roommates for a while, which was very nice. One of her roommates, Gina, was actually someone I recognized from Yuricon in 2003 (although I didn't realize until I'd asked her if she did east coast cons, and she said no, except for Yuricon)! She didn't come for Onna! this year, but is interested in going to another Yuricon; I told her that there is an Onna! tentatively
in the works for 2007, so maybe she'll attend that one.
I finally got to the lobby with the laptop to do some minor updates, but then decided that I'd go to the Bishounen Auction this year. It was, erm, interesting. At least some of it was more entertaining than I'd expected. There were even two guys whose performances I actually liked! But overall, I still think it's more stupid than anything else. I just can't get into it. I see people cheering and I just think, god, it's so fake and stupid and ewww. Although I realize people are truly having a good time, and it isn't fake for them, it's just a fun performance thing. But for me, I can't get past how stupidly fake it all seems. And the amount of money that is bid on the idiotic performances...!
I left a little early to come back to the room, and fell asleep for a bit. But I woke up and ended up going to the Westin lobby with Angelica where we hung out with Christine and Jana for a couple of hours before finally going back to the Clarion to sleep.
