MCM Expo Photo Report - Saturday

Postby LCPR on Sun May 25, 2008 12:31 am

This year was my first ever con, took loads of pics and ended up with really sore knees and feet. Nevertheless it was great fun.

I've decided to post my favourite shots here for you all to enjoy, though cons aren't exactly the best place for photo shoots (though I'd love to organise some over the summer). :D

Arrived at around 12:00pm, the queue wasn't super long though it was still quite a wait, there was a bit where a friend of mine wrote 'free hugs' on his DS and I held it up. Within 5 seconds someone asks if they could hug me... I said no (if on the off chance you're reading this, I'm impressed by your speed. Though that doesn't warrant a hug :p). Oh and the swarms of Narutards running around like three-year olds jacked up on sugar were annoying:
Image

Walked around and grabbed a few shots:

Image

And I got arrested (friend took this, anyone recognise me? :p):
Image

It got very busy after a while, so my friends and I decided to go outside:
Image

Image

We then had lunch at that noodle place in front of Costa Coffee... Cue my friends struggling with the chopsticks. :lol:

Went back inside and got the obligatory "girl in skimpy costume" shot:
Image

And saw some alien hugging:
Image

I think this guy wants some of L's sweets (there were TONS of L's):
Image

My friend and I were browsing the beez stand when we saw Zero. Cue me shouting "ZERO!", then him pointing at me, then him running away. He didn't get far though (Manga Alley):
Image
We also found Euphie! Stroke of luck haha.

Image
"NIPPON!"

Euphie after a day's worth of killing those damned Elevens:

Image

On to the masquerade (knees = in pain by then):

EPIC:
Image

SPERM:
Image

BELTS (best costume there IMO):
Image

After the masquerade, we spotted a Code Geass group (awesome):
Image
Didn't get a good shot though.

Then on the way out we got rickroll'd.
Image

Definitely an awesome day, I'm now seriously interested in doing some cosplay photography and the general mood was so fun and light hearted. Roll on October.

I've got more pictures in my flickr:

And I'll have some more artsy shots on my deviantART:

Hope you've enjoyed reading this as much as I did taking photos and stuff. :D

Thank you, you got a photo of me in the masquerade. <3 (The girl in the black and red dress with the butterfly/windmill headdress who oh-so-gracefully fell over the stairs and a stage light.)

Your photographs are all amazing, by the way.

Thanks. Your cosplay was amazing-er though. ;)

Was it difficult to see in or was your movement restricted?

Thank you. <3

I could see very slightly from my left eye, so it was depth perception and peripheral vision that I had major problems with. The girl who came on with me (fluffydragon on this forum) was helping me for the entire day by basically leading me around by the hand. Movement wasn't restricted much above what's normal for wearing the equivalent of a full ball gown, though.

Ignoring the content of the photos for a brief moment, I do have to compliment you. Your pictures are amazing quality. You are clearly a photographer of some skill and for that I tip my hat to you and envy with a depth of which I may never truly fathom no matter how much I focus on it.

Well done to you. Well done indeed.

Thanks. You're too kind haha.

And anyone can take good photographs, you just have too train your eye for composition as that's what makes or breaks a photo.
