my panel on cosplay photography, specifically the part about etiquette towards other cosplay photographers. I wouldn’t mind if they kindly asked, but they got in the way of my picture without consulting, how rude.

With the sun starting to go down, I headed off to an industry event where I made friends with people from all over the con world. After that I headed to the meet the guest reception. The first guest I had the pleasure to talk with was Seiji Muzushima. We talked about our Anime Expo experiences and he mentioned how he loved seeing all the Puella Magi Madoka Magica cosplayers. I told him that I took lots of great pictures and proceeded to show him some of my favorite photographs. He loved it and he traded business cards with me so that I can send him my favorite cosplay pictures. The second person I had the pleasure of talking to was none other than Danny Choo. He was fun to talk to like always. He said that he was very happy that Anime Expo overall felt like it has more energy and positive spirit compared to last year. I had a chance to show him some of my cosplay photographs and he was pleased with the pictures. The last guests of honor I had the chance of meeting were the executives behind Cypton. I asked one of the executives what he thought about Miku getting big in the west, and he said that he was pleasantly surprised. He said that the concert went very well and that he loved the crowd’s energy. It was a fun experience and I wish I could chat with the girls of Kalafina more, but I didn’t have the chance to because I arrived to the meet the guest reception a little late.

The third day of Anime Expo moved much slower that the frenetic pace of Saturday, but it was quite busy. Day 3 reminds me of the best and the worst of Anime Expo. We got to celebrate Anime Expo’s history with the great 20th anniversary panel. I had a chance to meet the guests of honor again and get their experiences and stories of Anime Expo. The good also comes with the bad, the exceptionally rude photographers who got in the way of several photo shoots come to mind. It was a great day, but I was reminded that there are people who need a nice lecture having better etiquette.
