DragonCon 2014 photos
If you found me through one of my stickers or cards at DragonCon, I’m still working on the photos. I should be done in like a month, or longer if you were in the parade. Or email me with what day and what costume you were wearing and I’ll bump your photos to the top of the queue.

First Friday – June 2014
First Friday fashion show at the Hawaii Institute of Hair Design. A Disney theme for this month and they went all out on the makeup and costumes as usual, but I kind of like that the villains outnumbered the princesses.
Here’s the full Flickr album
Still haven’t quite recovered from DragonCon, but I’ve started processing some photos. I brought home 2000+ pics so it’ll be a while yet before I get them all posted, but here are a couple cosplay pics that I got out over the weekend. Eventually I’ll have all my pics posted to my DragonCon 2012 photo collection
Kawaii Kon 2012
The complete photo set can be found on Flickr.
My favorite anime convention was last weekend and although it looked like it might rain, we were quite lucky to not have to deal with anything more than a brief drizzle. The costumes were as bright and creative as ever. If you’ve never been to a Con (anime, sci-fi, fantasy, etc.) the experience is so much different than Halloween. The cosplayers have an attachment to their costumes that the average Halloween-goer does not. Halloween costumes are meant to be disposable whereas most cosplayers will keep their costume from year to year and build onto the costume gradually. Cosplayers identify with their characters and take pride in their handiwork. In a nutshell, one can find a Ghostbuster anywhere but only certain type of person will put in the effort to go beyond an inflatable Proton Pack.
DragonCon 2011 Photos
The highlight of my year is when I travel 4000+ miles to Atlanta each year for DragonCon. By my count, I’ve posted nearly 1,400 photos from this past year’s Con. The costumes and cosplay at this event is by far the best I’ve seen. And I hope that I’ve caught a small slice of the awesomeness in this photo gallery.

Kawaii Kon 2010
Kawaii Kon photo set on Flickr.
My first Kawaii Kon and I think I will definitely be going back again next year. Got a chance to test out my camera rig for Dragon*Con in a less crowded environment. The photos turned out pretty well and the frame is relatively portable. I’ll probably try this again in the middle of next week’s Spam Jam to see if it can handle a shoulder-to-shoulder crowd of people.
