Animeland Wasabi

March 5, 2010

We arrived at The Red Lion Hotel last night, Thursday, but the con had not commenced. Last night we met up with some people from the Wasabi Chat and had fun talking about games and anime. One of our friends who may become  member of Kimiko is Kai Powell, who is We woke up around 8:00 this morning to get dressed and ready to stroll the lobby of the hotel. I was cosplaying as Lala Deviluke from To Love-RU, Paulie as Yuuko from XXXHolic and Patrick as Watanuki from XXXHolic. Registration for Artist Alley was open around 10:00 this morning, so we registered and got our table set up. We began excited, refreshed, pumped, all that jazz.. but in the long run FAIL! We ended up selling about a total of $3.00 worth of anime jewels. Buy hey there wasn’t that many people here today, so tomorrow shall be better.

While chilling at our table, Paulie and I (Patrick was guarding a room against Jewish Ninjaz(lol inside joke) ) we met the newest member of Kimiko Anime!!!! DUN DUN DUN DAAA!! His name is Matt Collins and he is EPIC! He was cosplaying as Sora Final Form, and made leather look damn good at that. So along with our new friend, we discovered the interesting features of Wasabi… mostly strange cosplay. We finally closed our Artist Alley table at 7:00 and went to McBarfs, where Matt decided to eat his cheeseburgers with chopsticks and form the MEGAZORD!

Later on in the evening, we took a trip to the rave. However, we were stopped by the most amazing guest to meet at a con: Yamila Abraham, publisher and founder of Yaoi Press. She told us all about her writing and shared some great stories with us. One of her fan’s favorites was a yaoi called ” Zesty”. She told us that she had to halt production of Zesty but that she could possibly finish the series… and save the rain forest maybe? But.. it would require some live Yaoi!

Zesty Tastee is a flamboyant gay playboy and heir to the Tastee Corporation fortune. That’s what the world knows of him, but Zesty is also Magpie, the corporate saboteur who fights against his father’s corrupt business schemes. Zesty’s evil tycoon dad is out to destroy an entire rainforest, and he’s joined up with a mysterious sect of ninjas to help keep ‘Magpie’ from interfering. Prince Ander is the sect agent on the case, and Zesty has love at first sight for this dreamy ninja master. Zesty can’t understand why anyone as noble as Prince would ever work with his father. His mission is to find out the secret of the rain forest, and win Prince’s heart in the process!

Yamila was an awesome person to talk to and we learned how she put her personality into her writing. Also.. she sneezed on Patrick lol. We then finally made our way into the Rave, only to dance about 2 minutes before returning to the room. So, all-in-all.. the first day went from Shit to Epic Win! Hopefully though we can sell more items tomorrow and make some money! It was great to make some new friends and new LOLs. We will return with more info tomorrow. Night All!
