Much like in 2011, our goal was to get something to eat before we changed back into Persona cosplay for the Midnight Gathering. This time around we went to Hoagie Steak Out and I had a Korean BBQ Cheesesteak with mushrooms.

Somehow, after last night, I was able to get myself up, walk all the way to La Vic's for a cheap breakfast burrito, then back to the convention center and waited nearly two hours for the HOME MADE Kazoku autograph session. I did this so that I had enough time to grab everything and make the trek over to the Fairmont to cover the only "panel" that I ever went to that weekend: the Cosplay Wrestling Federation, or CWF for short.
|Now that's DEDICATION.|

|My first look at the Fairmont since 2011.|
The hype train surrounding the CWF built after the successful show at ALA. With something to prove to the FanimeCon staff, the people behind the show as well as this crop of contestants went all-out.

|I was happy to hear that the item I donated sold for $200.|
|The battle between these two was intense and were often the ones throwing out the dollars for the majority of the items.|
|More shots of the crowd gathered in the lobby.|
Instead, me and Nate went up to the Fairmont to chill poolside and get our legs under us for once.

After that we went to another "hidden hotspot," Amor Cafe and Tea. There, I had some of the best milk tea in both San Jose and Sacramento.
We headed back to the convention for the final event of the night and the one event to signal the end of the convention: the Karaoke Gong Show.
