A week from tonight, during Loscon: Friday, after the Ice Cream Social, in room 1726, we have the "New Orleans in 2018" party. Which means that I'll get to have some jambalaya, or red beans and rice, or both. Wonder if I can get some Abita Beer here...

And a week from tomorrow, Saturday, after the Masquerade, at room 1728: "Pendergast Cafe" in support of Kansas City in 2016. This is the Speakeasy party, the password is Goats. I have my suspenders (thank you [livejournal.com profile] missmea!), Rebecca is making me a vest and bow tie. I need to see if they still have the fedoras at Target. The party will have lots of drinks in teacups, mostly drinks that will be called some sort of tea or lemonade (regardless of whether they are actually made from tea or lemonade). Also lots of food on sticks.

Tiffany (Neo_Serenity) and Arianna Unciano study the menus. Photos online. And most of them have captions. Help me fill in the gaps!

Losing my camera at Anime Expo really rocked me back... )

Oh, there's more going on than just my emotional state, of course. I've taken more photos since Anime Expo, but the photos in the queue have been on hold because of other non-photo, non-blog reasons. Family health issues and household management issues, and if I can be discarding and shredding old papers any of that comes before puttering around on my website.

I've just spent a few nights (in my copious free time) captioning some of the backlog. I think I've got to stop taking so many group photos -- they slow me down so much in the captioning phase!

I've been putting a few inconsequential updates on my facebook. Nothing major, but I wanted to repeat here the bigger items that I've mentioned there.

The Potluck Party Room at Costume College was a big success, so we'll do it again at PMX... )

Between now and PMX: I'll be at Tiki Oasis this weekend (just for fun), Anime Vegas (in a convention center), and a small anime convention at CSU Northridge. So PMX is the next opportunity to do any kind of hospitality beyond giving away granola bars and candy at our table.

For [livejournal.com profile] loscon, I'm hosting a Confirmation: Westercon 63 party. "Poofy dresses (especially white ones), shirt and tie, or school uniform" will be the dress code. We're toying with the idea of using a "Confirmitzvah" theme, stay tuned for that.

Some small convention news... )

I mentioned last month that I've purchased a new camera. I haven't found the "sports" setting yet, but I've started playing with the High ISO option for available light shots. You can see I've started posting the first crop of photos from the new camera.

Tomorrow: The [livejournal.com profile] loscon Picnic that [livejournal.com profile] squiptryx0 is organizing. See his post here for more info.

After that: Two conventions and three picnics, and stuff like that.

Artists: We need an extra design, one for an Animé Los Angeles postcard (you've got about four weeks) and another for a special postcard/flyer we'll be handing out at Anime Expo. More info to follow.

[livejournal.com profile] ladymaxstarr has a regular Orange County habit on Wednesdays: She goes to a goth club that some friends of hers run at a nightclub. Starting this coming week, it will be at an 18-and-over club in downtown Anaheim. For a month or two there, they were closed and she's been coming out and hanging out with us on some Wednesdays. As it turns out, the SPJA (Anime Expo's parent organization) board meetings are held on Wednesday nights... )

So, about those conventions. For AniZona, we'll have a table, likewise I hope to have one at FanimeCon in Artists' Alley. For FanimeCon we're probably going to have a Peanut Butter and Jelly Frenzy like we did a few years ago, which won't be advertised.

It's not clear yet whether we'll have a table at Anime Expo, but we have decided that we'll have a hospitality room at the Westin Bonaventure serving dinner. (That's the hotel which will have most of their evening programming.) We'll open in the afternoon/evening -- the time we open depends on whether we have a table in the dealers room. I'm going to want art for a special flyer we'll print up that will invite people to join us for dinner, and we'll hand those out -- face-to-face, and at our table if we have one. I'll be announcing the art contest for that flyer on the [livejournal.com profile] animelosangeles LJ in a few days.

For all of these conventions, plus Anime Vegas (at the Cashman Center, about a mile north of Fremont Street), I need to know who wants to help; if you and I have already talked about it, it wouldn't hurt to remind me now.

My Animé Los Angeles report, part 6: Sunday. (See also part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, and part 7.)

Fred Ladd had originally been one of my picks for a Guest of Honor to tie in with Old School Day... )

Sunday also marked the debut of our ''Your Next Convention'' mini program track... )

Rob Miles is in charge of "Stage Zero" at FanimeCon, and he's offered us a half-hour timeslot to talk up [livejournal.com profile] animelosangeles. What shall we do? Will it be at 9:00 am on the last morning of the convention?

Sunday afternoon was the ''Walking Free'' Fashion Show... )

There was a lot of interest in next year's Fashion Show, especially for having it earlier in the weekend. It'll be either Friday or Saturday next year, depending on what Tech and Events work out.

Our Editor Guest of Honor, Zac Bertschy, was only able to attend on Sunday... )

Feedback/Gripe Session, in the timeslot before Closing Ceremonies, was relatively painless. Suggestions included positioning signs so from the foyer you can look down the hall and see where the doors to Artists' Alley, Dealers, LP1, LP2, and so forth are. It was pointed out that the hotel has removed the signs hanging from the ceiling that used to say Salon A and Suite 1 etc, so it's even harder to find things. Another suggestion was to add a map of the facility to the BADGE ZONE signs, with a YOU ARE HERE dot. Many compliments, lots of people liked the costume-eating escalator sign and the big posters we had everywhere (mostly of Kevin Lillard's photos). We should have announced at Gripe to go get your poster now -- many were torn down once Closing started. (I may owe people a few reprints.) Suggestion for next year: post photos from the past five Animé Los Angeleses (Animé Los Angeli?). As well as Jessica's art.

Next: After it's all over
