    It wasn't a huge turnover for the cosplaying crowd at the inaugural Cincy Comicon but there were a few standouts. Well, hopefully next year will be better.

    I would've been able to photograph 2 or 3 more in outstanding costumes had my usual shooting buddy (i.e. my wifey) been with me. Couldn't sum up the courage to ask a couple of other ladies (batgirl, rogue, a sexy nymph) whose boyfriends were with them (who btw were either not in costume or were wearing sucky ones).

    That's a heck of a Ghostbusters setup! Pretty excellent Harley Quinn too :)

    I'm not into comic cons (though in fairness, I've never been to one) but I did love my share of comics growing up, I bet it'd be fun to pop into one of these sometime.

    At the San Diego Comic Con we were packed like a Sardine,
    Fortunately, the crowd I was with had good hygiene.

    Jay: I've never been to a comicon before either though it looks like it's a fun place to photograph others. :p There was a costume contest and Iron Patriot won with Harley as the runner-up. When I first met the Ghostbuster, I thought he was an employee or volunteer guarding the Ecto-1. Turns out he was just another cosplayer. Hehe..

    Peter: I was wishing for more cosplayer a ad not necessarily a larger crowd. :p

    Gary: Congrats btw on your new grandkid! Haven't had the chance to congratulate you on the other forum.

    Gary, you wouldn't want me or any of my colleagues treating your grandchild. Hopefully, your grandkid leads a very healthy life and would never have to be seen by the likes of me. (Not joking) :)
