Yesterday I attended my first Anime Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center and it was awesome!
There were so many people dressed up in some great costumes. The amount of time and effort these cosplayers put into their craft definitely paid off.

I haven’t been to an anime convention since Otakon in Baltimore back in…errrrr….2004 or something? Basically a really long time ago. I went with Alex back then too so it was only fitting that he came with me to Anime Expo yesterday. I was going to just take pics with my iPhone and post them on the site but since Alex is a professional photographer his turned out much better and just gave me his to use. Now you guys get to enjoy some awesome hi-res cosplay pics instead of my shitty iPhone ones lol!
Check out Alex’s website for more beautiful photography -> The Church of ALEX.com
The only pic that I wanted to really comment on is this one:
As you can see I was wearing my NSFW Gamer shirt proudly and taking shitty pics with my cell phone. I wasn’t talking out of my ass lol. I did get a few compliments on my shirt – the first one being from a police officer when I was eating lunch – though I did have more people tell me they liked my Han Solo in Carbonite iPhone case. Maybe I should have made an NSFW Gamer iPhone case instead. Derp.
Ok, I’ll stop talking because I know you guys just want to see the cosplay pics so here they are. Enjoy!
