First let me say that I LOVE being a cosplayer. I love dressing up, and I love taking pics with people. Now, I don’t like being pushed or questioned about declining to shoot with someone. Maybe I have to go to the bathroom or take an important phone call. Or maybe I just don’t like you. We all have our reasons. I am always polite but seriously, don’t fucking push me. I am not required to kiss your ass while you treat me like shit. No one deserves that. And that, my friends, is what prompted this video. So please be kind to your friendly neighborhood cosplayers.
This years PCC was a wild ride. Unfortunately because of a gunman situation, the convention was forced to ban all prop weapons and search every attendee and many exhibitors. Fortunately, no one was hurt and everyone had a good time. This year was also particularly sad. We lost one of our own just a few short days before the convention. Our beloved Windy West. She was an amazing woman and our hearts go out to her family.
Everyone has a different convention experience. Some go for the art, others want to see the celebrities, cosplay, autographs, parties, and more. It’s all very personal. I gathered these photos from different people. Friends, photographers, artists, and more. Thank you Courtex studios, Alvin Johnson Photography, Tony Julius, Sandra Le, Sean Johnson, Alfred Trujillo, and especially Jpool.
I hope that you enjoy these as much as I do. I am blessed to have been able to work with many of these cosplayers and creators over the years and hope to continue to do so.
