...I want to fly like an eagle to the sea. Fly like an eagle, let my spirit carry me...

People sitting front of the snacks in our Peanut Butter and Jelly Oasis. In August I went to Costume College, we tried running a Peanut Butter and Jelly Oasis. See my write-up to read more about it and learn why the Costume Exhibit should be moved to rooms 120/122. In these two photos you can see most of the food and a goodly number of fans enjoying the hospitality.

Lots of people in the room. Costume College could use a place for people to grab a snack or stop and catch their breath mid-day. I've heard back that they're not interested in having their hospitality open by day, although they'd have no objections if animelosangeles wanted to do this again. I think that means that we wouldn't get volunteer hours credit for running it.

A week later I organized a potluck cosplay picnic at Mason Regional Park, near U.C. Irvine. (more...)Collapse ) ala_mokita has joked that we should chuck this convention-running habit of ours and just organize potluck picnics. Days like that make me think there's a kernel of worth in the jest... And with running it on a potluck basis, it means there will be a lot of variety. People come through with what they can contribute. The trick is just to make sure that the minimum picnic fare is covered.

Current events: We went to Autumn Dream 1 last weekend. Ani-Magic is dead, having run 2000-2007. The new event is completely different, although a significant number of the staff are the same and there's still an ever-smaller number of regular attendees who keep coming back. I'll have more thoughts about that later, as well as my reports on Tiki Oasis, Anime Vegas and other recent adventures.

Current Location: Anaheim CA
