PandaRiot779 Goes to Yaoi and Sac-Con

Aye! Just finished posting photos for Yaoi-Con and Sac-Con 2017. here is a link to more links:

>>>>Yaoi-Con and Sac-Con 2017<<<<

Yaoi-con and Sac-Con are both rather small cons. I enjoyed them both but was annoyed about Yaoi.

Yaoi-Con

As a photographer, I basically work for free at conventions. I admit I normally ghost conventions because I do not part-take in anything they have to offer. I spend my entire time taking photos of cosplayers and provide free photos to con goers and free advertisement for the con. When I was at Yaoi a hotel worker (not con staff…. a hotel worker) approached me while I was taking photos and made me buy my badge for 40 dollars. He said he would kick me off the site if he caught me without a badge again. Since I am based in Sacramento and I carpooled, I had to buy my badge else I would be stranded in Santa Clara for a day. 40 dollars for a day at Yaoi-Con was a rob, if I knew the price  I would have not went to Yaoi-Con. Larger Cons like Sac anime charges me 30-40 dollars for 3 days.

I probably won’t go to Yaoi again… I feel like I was robbed 40 dollars.

I did, however, get some neat photos……. but again…. it doesn’t make up the worth of 40 dollars.

Sac-Con

Sac-Con is another smaller con in my area hoping to grow as big as Sac-Anime. At least, I think they are trying to cause they move their site to Sacramento’s convention center as opposed to the Airforce base or Scottish Rite center. I just thought the con could have been better if they chose another location. I like to have the chance to take photos of cosplayers in a location other than the Sacramento convention center and have free parking.

I am also starting to think Conventions are starting to be less cosplay orientated and more business orientated. I think If I feel like Cons are becoming less friendly to photographers and cosplayers, I would probably stop going to them and start focusing more on going to Gatherings and setting private shoots with local cosplayers.

Thanks for Reading:
