It was a fun event as always and I think I had more fun this time than I have in awhile. Perhaps it was because of the added element of Halloween that made for some wilder costumes as well as the mood or maybe because there was/is a since of camaraderie within the cosplay community that I am now a part of. There were people there that I knew from other events as well as some of the employees. Plus it never hurts when you get to talk to someone whose work you’ve admired be it acting or drawing – and even more fun when you get to take a selfie with them. Now it’s time to pack up my costumes for the rest of the year and for me to start working on new ones for next year.
I didn’t take that many photos at the event this time and initially I felt I had failed as a photographer and then I realized two important things! I had all of this makeup on and didn’t want to muck up my camera but more than that, I was having too much fun being part of the event to stop and take pictures; that makes it all successful 🙂
Have you noticed more people at these events since TWD has done so well on TV?
Well there are quite a few of those characters in attendance but the events have been growing for years now probably because of the stars who attend as well as all of the movies that have been out. Nerdy/Geeky is now very chic 😉
Glad you had fun. It looks like a good time.
Thanks! I’m already working on ideas for next year 🙂
Those costumes are amazing! People are so incredibly creative!-Ashley
I’ve got to step up my game! 🙂
oh you got to meet Giancarlo – I LOVE HIM!!!!
Yes I did 🙂 🙂
These are soooo cool! I loved your costume in the other post (that was you, right, in the white makeup and synched-waist dress?). Just awesome. Maybe in my next life, I’ll come back as a comic-con aficionado. Looks like I am missing out on a great party.
Yep! That was me in my La Catrina (day of the dead) costume. It’s never too late to get into it or to at least attend a con to see what it’s like 🙂
I agree with a comment above — you got to meet Giancarlo! 🙂
Yes indeedy I did 🙂
The costumes never cease to amaze, Teri. The lengths –and expense — that some will go. I don’t blame you for “forgetting” the photography. Comic-Con is all about having fun. Using a camera throughout the event is hardly my definition of a good time.
I so agree with you but with me it gets to be a conflict of interest sometimes 🙂
