Event dates: February 18-19, 2017
Last year I had to miss this convention because I was overseas celebrating my father's 60th birthday. This year I got to come out and celebrate my 34th birthday at this wonderful small con.
Long Beach Comic Expo is the sister convention to Long Beach Comic Con. It confused me as well at first but there's more to an event than just the name.
Originally I planned to set up some sort of tethered photo booth, but with a lack of electricity, I decided to wander around and shoot. Something that, until ALA, I haven't done in a while.
So I packed up my cart with a light and my backpack and pushed along the convention, shooting everything and everything.
I also had the honor of shooting the Le Geek, So Chic fashion show on my actual birthday. It was a great experience making new connections through there and to see some of my friends own the stage.
Overall the convention was highly enjoyable and something that I'd definitely make arrangements to go again.
I'm already excited for Wondercon.
Enjoy the photos.
Event date: February 5, 2017
The meetup originally set up for January, had to be pushed to February because of rain :(
But on the plus side, I got to hang out with some really cool people and made even better friends with cosplayers who made it out from far away. Half way through I ended up going to another engagement that afternoon, but I came back for more hangouts.
Words aren't my friend at the moment, so I'm just gonna post photos.
