Yaoi Jamboree, Glendale AZ, Day 1
Rachel Livingston let me hitch a ride with her to Glendale Arizona for Yaoi Jamboree. She picked me up at 2AM (my neighbors must be scandalized; they never see me up that late) and we drove into the desert. I don't have any pictures of this, sorry, it was just dark and empty.
But this is Rachel when we got to the Renaissance Phoenix Hotel:
Rachel did all the driving.
It's a nice hotel:
I never quite figured out what these were:

It's a nice hotel and even nicer that they let me check in when I got there and didn't charge an extra day. It's a brand new hotel and seems a little fragile. The attention to detail is odd: I came across some nice tile and light fixture touches, but they're used so often they lost any impact. And, of course, the carpeting ranges from alarming to distrubing thoughout.
I met Yamila Abraham of Yaoi Press, the organizer of the con (left), and Kyla Mills, the con chair (right):
There were long hallways to get to the dealer room:
There were previews in the dealer room from 5-9pm:
There were sketch sessions.
This pose started out like this:
And the next time I looked over there, it was this:
She said she was a Trekkie:
There are more pictures, some blurry ones as an extra bonus (ain't you lucky?) at the Flickr. God bless Flickr. More con reportage tomorrow.
Previously: Shoot. I don't have an ftp program on here to upload photos for commentary. But there's always Flickr and some bad pictures. I'll add photos and commentary when I get back to my own computer. (I was tired tonight anyway. Rachel and I left LA at 2AM.)

The hotel pictures on Flickr looks really nice and comfortable.
