Cos & Effect 2013

Cos & Effect (C&E) 2013, as expected, was a cosplay photography filled time with a twist.  At Cos & Effect 2013, this is the first time we have done a video recording of a one on one with a guest. The guest, which I had the opportunity to do a one on one with, was Crystal Graziano of Precious Cosplay. It was my first time doing such a thing with a guest however it was a lot of fun. After the one on one, I spent my time going to the Lolita fashion show, the Costume Contest and a few other panels. For the remaining days  Overall C&E was relaxing, for me.

My overall thoughts on Cos & Effect 2013?  I plan on going to Cos & Effect again next year and my reason why? Cos & Effect was made as an event to focus on cosplaying and costume making of all levels.  The guest line up kept to the purpose of Cos & Effect. The dealer’s area had some variety and the artist alley, even though small, was not bad. The event didn’t feel overwhelming to me as an attendee and as a result. I had fun being there. Many thanks to the various cosplayers and attendees who allowed me to take their photos.

To see more photos from Cos & Effect, head over to my FlickR set (http://www.flickr.com/photos/50585290@N02/sets/72157635220830590/).
In the future, I will upload a Cos & Effect album to my new facebook page; D.I.S/C Photography (https://www.facebook.com/D.I.S.C.Photography).
