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.
To start the day off. I decided to sit in the panel Cosplay 101, by Crystal Graziano of Precious Cosplay.
After the panel, I had the opportunity to do a one one one with Precious Cosplay.
Once we finished recording the one on one. Decided to check out the Lolita Fashion Show.
To summarize day 2 in a nut shell; cosplay, Costume Contest and Marvel Universe Charity Fundraiser.

Undiscovered Photography & the Dealers area
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.
