When I wrote about Nana the other day, I said it would crack my top five list. That got me thinking as to what I would actually put on my top five list. I came up with a quick one that is subject to revision, in oh about the time I finish writing this. Here's what I came up with.
- Love Hina
- Kare Kano

Sunday at Otakon will be brief. We waded through the dealer's room for quite a while, but all we accomplished was getting some manga, Sensual Phrase, and signing up for Katsucon. We already have a room so we thought we might as well. Then we wandered back to our usual haunt by the fountains. On the way we saw some good cosplay
This cool looking pair.
And a Lupin the 3rd group.
Back at the fountains we said bye to EBK.
And went back to get our stuff and go.
We had a great time, but boy we could have managed things alot better. We walked way more than we had to..

Saturday was a Magic Knight Rayearth day, we were doing Lantis and Alcyone. But first, we slept late, ordered breakfast and took forever to get up and out. This later fact will become important to the story. First we ran to the Clamp photo shoot out on the 3rd floor terrace
Next order of business was to go take some pictures with Super Kawaii Magazine.
So we ran down to the dealers room all the way in the back and waited a bit, and just as we were about to get started the F-ing fire alarm went off. We took refuge in the Hilton bar, then took a cab back to the Sheraton. You can see the heels Kimi was walking in. Anyway we went back and finally got it done.
Now it was time to hook up with a friend of ours who was doing Caldena from MKR. That character was pretty cool and she makes a fine pair with Alcyone.
We spent alot of time around the fountains, took some more pics with EBK and checked out other Cosplayers. Alcyone also did a commercial spot for Vincent of Sci-Fi Ninja Theater
For the evening Kimi will be wearing her white Alcyone from the OVA. We spent some time with a very cool Umi cosplayer and got a few pics with her.
While we were hanging out we saw some awesome cosplay.
It was a busy day and we were about to head back to the hotel when we ran into a whole set of Magic Knights. They were really awesome. We chatted, took some pics and hunted down EBK for a Quik shoot.
That was quite an eventful day.

We got to Otakon around lunch time on Friday, checked into our hotel and went straight to registration. Both of us got through in less than a minute, a far cry from say, Katsucon. Love the bar codes. Time to Cosplay. We went Auron and Lulu from FFX for the evening. First thing we did was run to a FF shoot which we passed right by and ended up in the midst of a Pokemon shoot. Very luckily we ran into a Tidus, Rikku and Yuna.

They turned out to be extra cool and we sought out the FF shoot together, which we actually made on time. After that we went searching for our friend and noted photog Eurobeat King. There were of course a number of impromptu photo ops along the way. Down by the fountains we found EBK, Refractor and a few others. We ended up doing a number of lengthy photo shoots. Our new found friends were real troopers.

|We also ran into Tidus' dad Jecht|
Lucky for her Yuna was nearby to revive her. Glad we ran into her. We parted from the rest of the crew to hang out by the fountains. We then met up with a few friends, and went wandering.
We also found another Lulu.
And a cool Rikku, along with a chocobo.
It was a really great day. Next we'll explore our Saturday adventures, and put up a link to all our Otakon photos.
