I am a nerd. A huuuge nerd. A plus of having an SLR camera is that it gives me the excuse to go to various nerdy events and take lots and lots of pictures to justify having said camera.
I-Con is an event that will always be in my head as my favorite because it was my very first convention. Everyone in my family thought I was strange for liking anime, so when I went to I-Con, I saw that not onl did people like to WATCH anime and read the manga, they would dress up as the characters, conjecture about what one character would do in what situation, as well as have battles on the Physic’s lawn (now no longer allowed).
In the same day I was introduced to the concept as “other people think like you!” I was introduced to LARPing, furries, shadowcasts and the like.
Oh, and the parasol on the left is authentic!
Nice wild west style of steampunk. I love her expression.
