EXCELLENT day at the Anime LA convention, which included an hour in what we had thought was going to be a Maid Cafe, but which turned out instead to be a Cosplay version of Alice's Mad Tea-Party. My friend and I sat at the Red Queen's table (the choice was to sit there or at the Mad Hatter's). Since I knew the Red Queen would behead anyone who disagreed with her - or beat her at a game - I slavishly praised her every utterance and, when games were brought to the table, lost hugely, loudly, extravagantly, all the while praising Her Majesty's beauty and expertise. It was all very silly.

I also bought a sketch-book in Artist's Alley - where there was some amazing artwork on sale - and a t-shirt. The costumes were amazing as well: saw a couple of very fine Doctors Who (4 and 10), and a marvelous Iron Man. And, in the dealer's room, LOTS of anime stuffy-toys. And some really good Sailor Moon groups.

I have now been entertained beyond my capacity to appreciate it, and will spend tomorrow doing laundry, drinking tea, and writing.

Yay for a fun day!

Laundry, tea, and writing sounds fairly peaceful, I hope?

Sounds like it was fun. We have Armageddon convention here, but I have missed the last couple of years, and went to Supanova to work. So much goes on at these huge events and I love the Cosplay - it has been a very long time since there was much costuming going on at the regular SF conventions I attend.

Wait - the Red Queen, or the Queen of Hearts? They're both unpleasant, but in different ways.

Or is this character an anime amalgam of the two?
