Kawaii Kon came through like a hurricane this past weekend. I didn’t dress up as Bob from Bob’s Burgers for once. That caused a lot of confusion for the people used to only seeing me with a mustache. It got even worse when I dressed up with a friend doing a real cosplay and no one knew who I was. Half of my Friday was spent dressed as Batou from Ghost in the Shell along with Sachi Senpai as Major Kusanagi. I lost about 70% of my vision and had to be guided around like a puppy, it was an entertaining challenge to navigate the area and recognize people. I failed miserably and would not have survived if it weren’t for my friends guiding me.
I managed to get a few shoots in before I had to dress up.
From here on out, I went full potato and decided to keep taking photos even though I was blind. I left everything up to the autofocus in the camera. You think I’d be frustrated with missing a few shots but I had a blast trying to do this. After snapping some casuals I attempted a real shoot, I managed to get a pretty good set of photos.
@kebin.808 took over the camera for a minute and nailed some shots of me and @sachisenpai together.
The eye pieces were removed and I had my vision again. Snapped a few more photos on the way to purchase @emkehawaii ‘s new CD
