The rest of the weekend involved me attempting to find friends to photograph. A lot of them were running around in preparation for the big contest. The prep for prejudging and the actual show caused some difficulties finding them till after everything finished. I also feel like my time management could have been done better. While I did manage to shoot a handful of my friends, there were many people I missed. Internal crying occurs when I finally saw all the great cosplays everyone else had the chance to photograph.
This whole problem developed from the way I started shooting. There are almost no general hallway shots anymore, I have started pulling off to the side in order to avoid the crowds or find some decent lighting. It means the people meeting with me get a lot more attention at the cost of not running into others. I really enjoy meeting everyone during these cons so there needs to be an adjustment to how I manage my time.
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
Neet is a small convention that happened on Friday Oct 21 at the Japanese Cultural center. I wasn’t really aware it existed until recently when a fellow photographer asked if I planned to attend. Luckily I was able to make it out and stay for a majority of the time. The con lasted from 5-10pm and admission was $5, at that price range it doesn’t exactly feel like it needs to live up to any expectations. So I personally had a pretty positive experience there. more “Neet Honolulu 2016”
Last month was another convention for Oahu and as usual, I spent most of my time outside trying to snag some photos. more “Comic Con Honolulu 2016”
