Hey Everyone!

Today, I am officially announcing my Third Annual Christmas Photography Contest! I started this contest 3 years ago to get to know more people and had no idea that this contest would become so popular! This year, I am going to do something a little different. I decided to add a category for all of my cosplay friends!

There will be 2 categories that you can submit to. The 2 categories are: Christmas Themed and Christmas Cosplay!

Category: Christmas Themed
– Christmas Themed pertains to any photo of Christmas Trees, decorations, food (cookies and such), snow, lights, etc.
– You can only submit a photo that belongs to you.
– Nothing inappropriate such as nudity.

Category: Christmas Cosplay
– For the first time, I am allowing people to submit photos of their Christmas Themed Cosplay. This also means any cosplay that you have worn (that isn’t Christmas themed) but had a Christmas photo shoot.
– If you are going to be submitting a photo of yourself that a photographer took of you, you must get the permission of the photographer before submitting. Also, please send the name of the photographer with your submission.
– Nothing inappropriate such as nudity.

Intervention Con 2012

Hi Everyone!

I have decided that I will be checking out a Convention on Saturday called “Intervention.”

Time/Location
September 21-23 2012
Hilton Washington DC/Rockville
1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852

From Friday 12pm to Sunday 4pm

I have never been to this con before and thought it would be fun to check it out. I’m friends with a lot of people who are running this con on Twitter and they have really been kind enough to even ask me to attend.

For those who don’t know, “Intervention” is an “internet convention” which is meant to Intervene and Inspire the whole family to embrace Technology, Digital Media, and the potential of the Internet in order to make a better world. Their community-centric event consists of 2 elements:

– Learning from the pros: They have 3 days of panels and workshops taught by people who are already using digital media to make something awesome.

– Having fun: Geeky performances, fan panels, gaming, dance parties, steampunk tea parties, concerts, networking, and Children’s Programming overseen by school teachers, NASA employees, and Wired.com bloggers.

They are a new kind of fan convention that focuses on education and real life training. We believe that fandom is empowering and motivating.

It’s $25 at the door on Saturday so I have to see you there!!!

Baltimore Comic Con 2012

Hi Everyone!

I will be attending Baltimore Comic Con this Saturday! I have never been to this convention so after I saw who was coming, I had to get a VIP pass! I will only be going the one day because I have a few major event throughout the whole weekend, including a music video I will be participating in. So, because I am only going for the one day, I will not be cosplaying but dedicating the time to photography and meeting my hero.

I am so excited about this because STAN LEE is going to be there! He is my hero! When I was a little girl, one of my biggest dreams was to meet Stan Lee. I always imagined what I would say to him if I ever met him. Now that I am going to actually meet him, I’m kind of overwhelmed. What do you tell a man who changed your life? It seems so silly to others that comics would impact a person so much. For me, comics are more than just stories.

I’ll ever forget being left at Sunday school after a lecture of how girls don’t read comic books from the minister because I was reading one of my brother’s Batman comics in the lobby. I was so angry that I just walked out of the church across the street to a really awesome Anime store called “Starland.” It was a really cool store that sold Manga, DVDs, trading cards, and USA comics. The gentleman that owned the place was always so nice to me. I had asked him, I feel so bad that I can’t remember his name, if there were any comics that had women in it. He kindly took my hand and brought me over to the USA comic books section and handed me an X-Men comic book.

No one was allowed to touch the comics in the store unless you were going to buy them but he told me I could read whatever I wanted. It was so amazing to me to read stories of mutant girls who had amazing powers and were able to defend themselves, villains that would stop at nothing until they defeated the good guys, and no such thing as gender barriers.

As I grew up, comics became a huge part of my life. I became obsessed with Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Avengers, and everything Marvel. Don’t get me wrong, DC Comics are good but I just can’t respect a comic book company that thought Aquaman was a good idea.

I didn’t realize, as I grew older, that every single comic that I adored Stan Lee was a part of. I remember writing him a letter to tell him thank you for publishing these comics but never had the heart to mail it. I thought he would probably just laugh at it or he got so many letters that he probably didn’t want to read one from a 12 year old little girl.

Now, I have my chance to see him and will try and articulate my thanks in person. I may just freeze up but hey, at least I’ll try!

If you’re going to Baltimore Comic Con, let me know!

Animazement 2012 – Sunday

Hi,

I did not take a lot of photos on Sunday. I was more concerned with getting to the Artist Alley for the cut prices. So this album is short (link below).

I will be posting up some details on my Commander Shepard Cosplay later tonight so everyone knows what is going on! If you have any questions, just let me know!

Hi!!!

Here are all the Saturday Photos from Animazement (Link posted below). I’ll post Sunday’s later today.

I have been trying to post the photos on Facebook but there is a glitch in the system that doesn’t allow me to load any new albums. I put I ticket in for Facebook to look at it for me.

Have a great weekend!

I have uploaded all the photos that I took on Friday from Animazement on my FLICKR (Link Below). I’ll be posting them on Facebook as well so people can tag the photos. I’m having a problem with Facebook today so it may be tomorrow. I will try again later today though.
