Kawaii Kon 2013

Erick emailed a bunch of us on Friday and asked if we'd like to join him at the Kawaii Kon event on Saturday.  It'd been awhile since I bonded with my fellow photographer buddies, so I answered that I'd try to make it.

Me and my sisters went to the swap meet first and then we headed to the Convention Center after our usual filipino food lunch.  It was my first time to the Kawaii Kon, and I was shocked.  It is a HUGE event that was held on Friday, Saturday AND Sunday.  There were uku billion people in costumes and uku million photographers.

So cool yah!  I got a few more photos to share though the above are my best.  I'll post the other pictures later.  This next photo shows the photographers in action.  Isn't that unreal.  Erick's not even in the bunch.   I saw Erick for a total of about 30 seconds and then we got separated.  I never saw him again. So much for bonding.

I enjoyed looking at those cos-play people! My favorite in this post is the long haired blond girl.

I love that picture too Shun Wah. The color is for real. Normally I woulda photoshopped out the guy in the background, but I kept him in there to show the contrast of colors between the couple and him.
