Fanime 2017 Part 1

The time of the year for Fanime registration has come and it’s probably about time I post some photos from last year.  I’m definitely not cut out to handle these long days of walking around taking photos, now that I think about it, maybe I should do some cardio training before the 2018 event.  more “Fanime 2017 Part 1”

Got an umbrella

A friend hooked me up with a large umbrella to soften up the light on my flash.   I chose a larger size not realizing how much it is to handle when you’re outside and the wind is hitting you or even fitting this in doors.  I really should start bringing assistants out or perhaps an extra 40 lbs worth of sandbags could do the trick, this could be a serious workout all by myself. more “Got an umbrella”

Shot with AnnAsian

Quick lil shoot with some friends.   They were trying to show me how to fill in some light with reflectors.  Been a while since this happened, definitely need to reschedule another shoot with @annasian. more “Shot with AnnAsian”

V.K. Sweater

There have been a handful of random Japanese lingerie pieces getting popularity.  It’s pretty fun   @alohaAaliyah_ came over with the Virgin Killer sweater and we got to shooting.   more “V.K. Sweater”

Sheer sunset

Bonnie had this nice little body suit and sheer robe to shoot with.   Naturally, I wanted to hit up a spot that let the sun shine through. more “Sheer sunset”

Kawaii Kon Friday 2017

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
