Me and some friends went to Dragoncon last weekend in Atlanta, GA and it was definitely an experience. Of the 4 of us that went only 2 of us really dressed up and that was me (a 1900′s newsie) and Jon (Ezio from Assassins Creed). There was a ton of walking involved and a great deal of gazing due to both the absurdity and craftsmanship with some of the costumes. I was really surprised to see how some of them came out and even though I didn’t get pictures of everyone I wanted I still managed to snag a great deal of ones I did want. It really helped when asking people to take their picture because that is something that I’m struggling with ever since I did a poll not too long ago about what you would do if someone asked to take their picture. The response…was pretty negative…but lets be serious…the south isn’t really known for its appreciation of artists.
HERE is one of the images from Dragoncon that I took. Obviously, for anyone who knows Batman, this is the Joker. This guy really caught my eye due to the ruggedness of the makeup he did on his face. His actual suit that he wore was pretty dead on too…it definitely turned some heads so I asked him to strike a pose…and here we are!
P.S. If you came to this site looking for your image PLEASE BE PATIENT! They will be uploaded to my flickr and Facebook in an album. Please drop me an email if you would like me to go ahead and get to yours otherwise I will be taking my time with these to make sure they come out as awesome as possible! Thank you!
