Team USA's blog as we get ready for WCS 2008!


[Current Mood |accomplished]

We didn't win.

BUT THAT'S OKAY! We went there are reconnaissance for future TEAM USA and we gathered up a lot of info for our teams that will GUARENTEE A WIN!

Brazil won first place for their Burst Angel skit. It was all sorts of awesome with mechas, and girls in panties and it shot out smoke and bullets came out. Too awesome.

Second Place went to our friends, China, who did such a spectacular show with fans and...soooo romantic looking!

And Third went to our BFFs, Team Japan (Osaka), who did.. no joke the sexiest yaoi skit...ever. And that's a lot coming from someone like me who actually hates all things yaoi. I was SWOONING! We invited them to come to NYAF, so their tickets are booked and Rens and I will be showing them around NYC. They are soooooo GORGEOUS!

Everyone did really well, and we are really proud to have performed on stage. We got such a cool crowd reaction for doing JOJO, so that's good enough for us. We got to mingle with some cool Japanese cosplayers after the show! Good times all around.

Now, I'm sure people have the question in their mind.. IS THIS NoISE RIGGED?

And I can say that they are NOT rigged. At all. People who deserved to win, did. Regardless of press or anything. So please..PLEASE try out for WCS, we've had such a spectacular experience that we'll carry with us for the rest of our lives.

And Renee and I are going to start saving now to go to Comiket next year! Japan is AMAZING!

Oh and again..it was balls hot outside. Poor Renee in her costume.. gg.

I hope people do come and compete at NYAF for next year's competition. I think with it being even earlier for next year, it can only help the US team. Have a safe trip home.

The videos for some of the performances (without sound, maybe it's just my browser?) are already up at the WCS website, but your guys' still isn't up yet. Looking forward to seeing the video when it's up, I am so proud of you guys :D
BTW it seems the pics from the parade are also available already! http://www.tv-aichi.co.jp/wcs/news/080803a.html

Bah, who cares if you didn't win. You guys got to go to Japan for free, more or less, and got to have a hell of a time there.

It's good to hear that you guys had fun. :D

It's an amazing accomplishment just to have qualified to represent your country! It's too bad you didn't walk away with something, but I kinda get the feeling the experience is it's own reward, huh?

I'd like to try for it sometime, myself. ^^ Got a ways to go yet, though.

You totally won something, the faaaabulous award. But seriously, you guys brought hope back to people in the USA who want to do the WCS, and have helped bring down the "OMFG ITS RIGGED" speculation. For that, I thank you.
