Anime Oasis report  
Some AO highlights, in stream-of-consciousness order.

The guy cosplaying as Cthulu who people simple called "the tentacle monster," and people, umm, "encountering" the tentacle monster.

Kendra, from St. George, Utah, who let me teach her Fluxx and played three games with me.

Mastress and Buck were my roommates for the con, and were very pleasant and fun. Mastress brought some drinks. Orange Smirnoff Ice is a tasty malt beverage. It's 5% alcohol by volume, and I can drink about half a bottle at a time. I don't do alcohol much.

Unrestricted cosplay only had 5 skits, but it was enjoyable. Especially notable to me were the two girls cosplaying Final Fantasy characters who got an award and then kissed on stage, and Fat Bastard, who did a strip tease on stage and mooned the audience. Oh, and the tentacle monster chasing people around the stage.

The Indian restaurant we happened by, that let me have buffet to go, and whose was generally nice and friendly and understanding.

The thift store that had what I needed for my costume.

Lots of AMVs shown on an LCD screen and a projector. I wish I'd brought Hello Kitty Mortal Kombat to share and let them show.

Dancing to trippy techno. Dancing to a BoA video. Dancing to an AMV of SES's "Dreams Come True." Dancing on my knees with a group of people I don't know.

Buying a lifetime membership for $65.

Aye. Must drag people kicking and screaming to Boise, Idaho next year.

I read that, and uncompressed the "BoA" and came up with:

Dancing to trippy techno. Dancing to a Bank of America video. ....

For the record...
I would like to state for the record that I was not cosplaying as Cthulhu, though there is some resemblance. I was in fact simply a generic hentai tentacle monster, as has appeared in La Blue Girl (see it), Urutsuki Doji (skip it), Demon Beast Invasion (skip it), Angel of Darkness (see it), Sailor Moon (um...), and a whole host of other Anime.

By the way... did I get around to tentacle-raping you?

Re: For the record...
I swore I'd heard you mention Cthulhu, though it was probably someone else. :) That was quite a memorable costume.

Yes, you did. I just stood there and raised up my arms.

How did you find my post, btw?

Re: For the record...
Was just using Google to see if anyone had gotten any pictures (I wasn't in any of my own pictures as the Tentacle Monster), and stumbled across it. 'S a good report.
