Yo! I postponed studying for my Final next Wednesday to visit Wizard World and snap some photos.
Some dude came up to from behind and asked if I was PandaRiot779…. “Yes, I am but I am busy using the Urinal.”
——————–Note to people who know who I am…. I have a huge bubble when I am in the bathroom…. and it stays pretty big when I recently leave a bathroom… Some kid hugged me from behind after I left the bathroom and scared the hell out me. . . . I elbowed her in the face… sorry ————————- I didn’t take a photo.
Got to walk past Kate Beckinsale…. All I wanted was a high five from her but a quick shot of MaidofMight in her Selene Cosplay was good enough.
Here’s a Link to all the photos I took.

I used an 85mm lens and it is tough for me to take full body shots since everyone was concentrated on the show floor and I require at least 4-6 feet to take a good shot. I was only limited to portrait shots.
Thank you for visiting. I am starting a Print Store with Cosplayers I work with. Follow my Instagram as I slowly populate my store.
Although I only got to meet her very briefly, I was able to take a few sweet photos of Sinastri Cosplay. She is quite the lovely cosplayer and you if get a chance please take a moment to appreciate her previous work and support her by buying her prints at: http://sinastricosplay.storenvy.com/
Can see the photos I’ve took of this talented cosplayer here:

Half way through uploading the photos I ran out of storage on my website and needed an alternative method of returning photos. So I decided to seperate/sort the photos om a way that helps cosplayers find themselves. The photos are divided into groups and numbers so I can easily direct cosplayers to their pictures. Might be a little confusing cause I had to use Google Photos mid way through uploading and I’m too lazy to make things consistent.
Alright click this Link: Fanime 2017
The first few groups are organized under whomever gave me their cards. Then into genres, and finally into cosplays I do not recognise. There are images of every cosplayer in each group and under each set of pictures is a link to the google album. (click your Instagram name)

I used a soldering iron to clean the anime girl. Tracer’s model came out with a million holes and I tried to fill them all with the soldering iron. yea she didn’t come out well either. If i were to reprint her i would probably scale her up and add more supports. he model was rendered weirdly and isn’t very printer friend.
Thanks for watching.

Tough model to print. needs lots of supports
Hey I asked a friend to save her armor pattern so I can testing my laser cutting worbla idea and I gotta say it came out great. And also test out my table turner I built.
I asked my friend to send me photos of her patterns and used photoshop to trace her pattern:
I then transfered the trace on to the laser cutter and got this.
The pieces came out great but putting them together was tough. I actually ruined my mannequin by melting the worbla on to the mannequin on accident. Aso I need to shrink my hands to make the armor. it was tough attaching the tiny worbla pieces together.
And finally test the table turner. Here is a link to a video test of my model on the table turner.
special thanks to : https://www.instagram.com/ektrix/
for letting test out my idea with her In Progress Cosplay.
Having a laser cutter is great! if you have many tedious pieces in your cosplay play, you should consider contacting a maker space in your city to laser cut the pieces for you. normally it would take me an hour to cut those tiny pieces but the laser cuts it out in lets than a minute.
If you have any questions please shoot me an e-mail.
If you enjoy my work and want to support me shoot me a follow. I do plan on using my table turner to show off more cosplays and 3d prints.
I need to order a new mannequin…. dang it….
For experimental purposes, I measured a Body-Kun and test printed it for 3d modeling purposes. My guess Is I can make 3d printable armor pieces and test them on body-kun then scale them up human size. So far I got a pretty good scale print of body-kun which proves I can use the model to make
I got a pretty good scale print of body-kun which proves I can use the model to make armor to fit her. The print was in 10 percent infill and I used an iron to melt off the supports… that is why it looks odd. Without that taken into consideration, It looks pretty good and it makes a good reference in my 3d modeling programs also the armor pieces can be scaled up to life sizes and as long as you are 5-6 feet tall you’ll fit into the armor no problem.
I am getting pretty excited cause I been wanting to do this sort of thing ever since I saw Felicia Day’s 3d printed armor designed by Mellisa Ng. This is just a step towards creating my first design and showing it off to you guys. Hopefully sometime in the near future I can print these designs for real people…. but for now, I will stick to creating them for body-kun…. cause I am poor….

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day.
Currently working on Tali’s helmet, female Alarak, and a howling banshee. Once I finish my first set of armor I will make one of them youtube videos that are not crappy like the rest of my videos.
Again thanks for reading, bye.
Yup met some mighty awesome cosplayers at Nor-Cal’s Gathering and here is a link to the photos.
Some Read if You care stuff: About stuff I see at cons
Sometimes at conventions I get somewhat annoyed when I see people left out based on their appearance. It especially ticks me when someone talks about others in rude ways. I remember a photographer once told me he only charges money to cosplayers who do not look good and I also remember hearing people verbally make fun of some cosplayer’s image. This is extremely insensitive and hurtful to the person and I hope you are bothered as much as I am.
I do not think body shaming is good for any community, you would be the worst jerk if you made fun of weak and fat people at the gym. It is equivalent to healthy people making fun of wheel chairs in a hospital. Maybe a bad metaphor, but you get what I am trying to say, being a dick is not cool. It creates a negative aura when cosplayers are given less positive and more negative attention….. even the lack of attention could be taken as a negative.
unfortunately, I have to admit,
I myself have a bias towards who I take photos of. I look for cosplayers who grab my attention, they may have intricate looking designs or look kawaii enough for me to come up and ask if I can take a few photos. At the same time, I ignore those who do not stand out. I see this as a problem cause it shows I am being picky and leaving a number of cosplayers out which may be offensive if people knew this. Also it does not agree with what made me continue doing cosplay photography. When I began posting people’s photos online, I got comments about how my photos boost their confidence and made them feel good about themselves. This made me feel great, cause what I did was somewhat influential in a good way.
But after noticing I am being selective with my photos, I believe I need to be more conscious when I go out to events for photos also be more aware of who I ask. It annoys me when I see people alone….. maybe my photography can change this, maybe… Just hope I continue with my original objective or else I will be annoyed with myself.
Yeah…. sum things up, I act dismissive and I know it would suck if someone dissed me or brushed me off.
