Event Dates: July 21 through 24, 2016
The biggest party of the summer, San Diego Comic-Con crashed into my life again this year, after last year's fiasco. Luckily this year, I was able to acquire a badge and have the entire time shooting to my heart's content.
I did an overview and a Q&A for Myspace as well. Once I finished those tasks, I got to really soak in the atmosphere (I didn't breathe too deeply because of human funk), and immerse myself in this event that I haven't been able to really participate in for a number of years.
It was extremely organized from the last time I participated and it didn't seem as horrendously crowded as I remember. Still it took some time to go from one side of the site to the other, but all in all it was a very tolerable experience.
What made it really great though was hanging out with cosplay friends. I mixed a lot of groups up that weekend, and I wouldn't have asked for anything else to change... except maybe drop the temperature to a nice 72° instead of whatever the fuck it was.
Event date: August 11, 2016.
It's been a while since I've posted. Life has gotten a little hectic with taking photos and trying to catch up with editing them all, but last night was all kinds of epic and the shots were good and easy to get ready, I had to post them up right away.
Anyway, April O'Neil was hosting another After School Special event with hip hop artist YNGNFRSH scheduled to perform, and of course I came by to support her. I came more as a friend than a photographer, but when YNGNFRSH hopped on stage, the club got lit. I swapped lenses from capturing cute portrait stuff to throwing you into the whole atmosphere of the night.
After the show April and her friends decided to do some karaoke near by. I didn't have anywhere else to put those photos so they're here too.
