I've been following MomoCon since about 2007 back when it was a small, free Georgia Tech event (way before I started attending conventions). I discovered it through Facebook ads because, hey, ads are supposed to cater to your general interests, right? But anyway, I've watched it grow over the years to what it is now.  Even through I've only attended the past two years, I can understand the sentiments when MomoCon veterans reference the Georgia Tech days. Because of this, MomoCon is one of those cons that I will always hold dear to me, and will make every effort to attend, or have at least some involvement in its growth and success.

With that out of the way, I can say that this was a very relaxed event, and it was a joy seeing everyone up in Atlanta, meeting and networking with new people, and eating at some wonderful local spots.  I also ran my first, though unofficial, Half-Marathon at Chastain Park in 02:00:42 Sunday morning.  These places all picked out or suggested by the wonderful Atlanta-area tour guide and cosplayer, Setua.

MomoCon photoshoots were scarce, but the time I spent with friends more than made up for it. Additional shoutouts to Switt-Blackcat, Sonicvortex99, xinstrumental, and elysiagriffin for being the awesome people that you are!  Also, to MarmaladeHearts and peachibear -- wish you could have made it.  The experience wasn't quite the same without you.

Now comes the process of brining you the photos from my MomoCon shoots.  I've already got the Kyoukai no Kanata shoot uploaded, and you may notice that my watermarks have changed.  From here on out, I'll be using my personal signature/initials on my watermark as I am slowly phasing out the ørz_Phtgrphy name.

As for future conventions, I am sad to announce that I am officially dropping Otakon from my cons this year.  It is just way too expensive for me to handle (and the weather too hot).  It's astounding that I was able to do it two years in a row.  I'll definitely miss the Northeast crew this year, but I hope to see you guys again in the future.  To make up for dropping Otakon, I am picking up Anime Weekend Atlanta -- so definitely look out for me there.

Also, don't forget that I have a booth next weekend for Knightrokon at UCF! Plain backdrop shoots are $10 and 50% proceeds go directly back to Knightrokon  (they set the terms for this, and if I had my way, I wouldn't be charging -- trying to work with them for pricing).

That's all I have for now! Don't forget to follow my page on Facebook!

I'm just your recent college grad with interests in anime and photography. These interests collided with each other when I attended my first anime convention at New York Anime Festival back in October 2010, where I found my passion in cosplay photography.

Now, I shoot for the purpose of showing the best in cosplayers' works. I am always amazed when I see the great detail someone puts in their cosplay, and I feel compelled to try and instill that feeling through my photos.

Feel free to comment and give critiques. If you know the cosplayer featured in one of my pictures and it's not credited to them, let me know so that I can add that information. The way I see it, it's the cosplayer that did most of the work; without them, I wouldn't have the pictures to share.

Thanks! I don't know why I haven't been following until now. I've known of you since NYCC 2010 (before I started my own cosplay photography!) I hope to see more of your work in the near future -- I understand that you have a young one now? Congrats!
