The writing prompt on the Daily Post @ WordPress yesterday was “Childlike” (http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/daily-prompt-childlike/). That seemed pretty perfect for how I spent my weekend… at NYC’s Comiccon. It wasn’t exactly my idea (okay, my wife had to pretty much drag me), but it certainly did remind me that there’s still a bit of child left in every adult (or at least every adult I saw that day).
A lot of the people who are serious about “Cos Play” are actually really talented- you should see what they create. They’ll walk around and pose for pictures and this is clearly their chance to shine. I’m more of a hip-shot kind of a photographer than a pose-for-the-picture photographer, but here are some of the photos I got (I have no idea who more than half of these characters are:
My friend Diem, who we went with, and a Stormtrooper. There must have been at least 100 Stormtroopers in the building at any given time, of all different shapes and sizes (and her husband took pictures of at least half of them).
My friend from work. I knew she was going but we hadn’t planned to meet up. It’s amazing that we happened to run into each other, amidst the 30-40,000 people there (the overall attendance for the 4 day event was 130,000). And, yeah… she’s a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.
