So, as I slog through some old pics, I find that Gensao has bequeathed me, not only his Sac Anime Summer 2012 pics, but also his Fanime 2011 pics; including that mega-dose of pics from the main stage of the Masquerade which are no included in their own folder with Mayhem's Masquerade Backstage.

I'll be getting to the Sac Anime Pics in short order, and hope I'll get a minireport done sometime soon as well. If you're one of the cosplayers and want a larger, unedited, and/or raw version of your pic(s), send me a message and I'll make theme available. Well, in Gensao's case, all I have are the JPG's given his enormous picture taking proclivity, but if you really want the raws, I'll see about contacting him concerning them. Have fun!

Got some new stuff over at TFA Cosplay!

Well, as you can see by heading to the main page of the gallery, that I've gone ahead and done a complete reorganization. If a convention or event has two or more entries it gets its own folder, which will then be divided by date and then by photographer and event as applicable.

However, I'm pretty sure most don't really care about such mundane topics like organization and that you're probably looking for the first of the Sac Anime Summer 2012 pics, which you can find right here. T'was a fun year, despite me coughing my lungs out after the show, and I'm really liking my new camera the more I use it. As always, if you're one of the cosplayers and want an unedited and/or RAW version of the pic, message me, and I'll make it available. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2012 Report Up

What's this? I have the report up this early? Again? Am I becoming reliable? Next thing you'll probably be wondering is where the movies are, right? Well...they're actually done, but I need to upload them and such, heh. Still, the report. It's there, and what can I say about the convention? F'n weird is what I can say about it. Perhaps it's a good idea we basically drank the whole time, and I do mean that, we were drinking the whole damn time. I'm reminded of shore leave in the Navy. Come to think of it, in terms of just how much I drank this convention...yeah, that was on par with a typical shore leave without the nightly finale of getting totally hammered.

So what are you waiting for? Check it out and see all the weirdness. If you were there, you can probably sympathize with some of what I noted in that report, I expect. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2012 Report

Huh? What? Oh, right. Time for a report. You'll have to excuse the mess…yeah okay, the beer and various other alcoholic drinks scattered about, but I was at least rather mellow this whole convention. Even when they were doing what AX does best and not speaking to each other. At all. I kinda find it amusing that one has to stay a little bit 'happy' just to get through this convention, and that this year, being AX's 21st birthday, they tried to keep us 'happy' with various places to get alcohol, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

Swear to all that is evil and unholy, if I have to do this again any time soon, I'm going to fry this mudball of a planet...

Oh, hi all! If you've been to the gallery any time in the past day, you'll note that I've been upgrading the damn thing with new technology, or in this case, Gallery 3. This was required because, as many have been screaming at me, the Gallery 2 based website was malfunctioning badly. This was due to the upgrade to version 5.x of PHP on my webhost. Theoretically, the version of Gallery 2 I was running was supposed to be compatible, but we were all seeing the extremely slow response times, 500 errors, and broken thumbnails...assuming the thumbnails decided to load at all.

This has now been corrected. You'll note that the site works slightly differently. You navigate with the arrows in the top right corner. Gone is the lightbox, though I hope to bring it back in the future. I've increased the amount of pics and rows per page considerably. If you want to see the full sized pic you'll have to click on the pic again after opening it in its own page. These are still resized and edited pics, so in the future, I'll see about the feasibility of uploading full sized pics. As time goes on, other features, such as some Facebook integration, will be added along with a complete rearrangement of the albums to make them a little more organized.

But what am I doing talking about all this? You're here to see Anime Expo 2012 pictures, are you not? Well, here they are. All the pics are here: Mayhem's, Gensao's, and mine along with some events that required their own albums. If you see a pic of yours and want a larger and/or unedited version, just tell me and I'll make it available. Enjoy!

AM^2 2012 Report and Pics Are Up

What? You thought I was just going to wait 'til right before AX? Or even some months after? You take me for that sort of procrastinator?

Yeah, I guess I am one of those actually. But not today, Galvatron! Oh no, for once, I have all my stuff done three days after con! That's right, it's all done! Well...I'll have the movies up in a bit, but they're all transcoded! Praise me! Praise me!

Yeah, okay, I didn't expect that to actually work either. Oh right, you wanted the pics, well here you go, you can find them here on TFA Cosplay. You're probably looking for the report this news item mentioned. Yeah, I can provide that too! I'll be getting the movies up later tonight, so stay tuned for more!

Fanime 2012 Article Now Up

Right before I hit AM^2 I have for your viewing pleasure the Fanime 2012 article. In it you will see what we suffered and fought for, or at the very least what we did and got drunk during, at Fanime 2012. Truly, this year was an exercise in the surreal, and I got to meet people I'll be going to Hell with. How often do you get to do that?

Fanime 2012 Article

This was one weird year for Fanime. Not so much the convention itself, but everything that wound up going on around it. Just…weird.

A lot of this has to do with the logistics of just getting to and staying at Fanime this year, which had to do with the fact that Mayhem just could not hang for more than a couple of days. This required that I head up and board with Gensao for the night before since we did not hit up day zero. It's probably for the best we didn't hit up day zero, but I'm getting ahead of myself a bit.

Mayhem's Fanime 2012 Pics Now Up

And hot on the heels of my massive amounts of movie and data processing, we have Mayhem's Fanime 2012 Pics now up. Though he was only there for a couple of days, he managed to snag some great pics pics including both backstage Masquerade and pics of the Black and White Ball at its brand new location! Some good stuff this time around, so check it out.

As always, if you're one of the cosplayers, and you want a larger and/or raw version of the pic, send either me or Mayhem a message and we'll make them available to you.

Fanime 2012 Pics Up at TFA Cosplay

Still getting used to my Nikon D7000, so the post processing on these pics is reminiscent of the post processing I had to do on my Nikon D40x. Also wound up having to drop a few since focus was a bit off, but in any event, here are the pics for Fanime 2012.

Even with the technical difficulties, I'm rather impressed with what my new camera can really do, though it will be awhile before I master it fully. A few of the pics at the end were taken with my Olympus EPL-1, so that's why they may look a little different. As always I hope you enjoy them, and if any cosplayer wishes for larger, unedited, and/or raw versions of their pics, message me, and I'll make them available. Finally, if you have one of my cards either side of that card has an email address I can be contacted at, so don't be afraid to use either.
