Well, this happened today. We started at Cliftons and pretty much wandered to 2 other places in downtown, or, that’s what we did before I took off. I’m glad I got to spend more time with the brides this time. Last year Wondercon was also happening so I was with them for 2 or 3 hours then. I don’t have a dress myself, so i did what I can to wear as much white and look as formal as possible for myself. so I put on a pair of light colored dress pants, white button up and the lightest colored tie I have. If only I also had a vale because that might have completed it.

I had nothing going on, so I went over met with some local cosplayers and photogs and took some photos. Mainly it was to test my lens more to see if I have anymore more problems. Much of the time after taking one photo I would have an error, so I would have to turn my camera off, disconnect the lens and reconnect it again. I think I have to take it in again. Or do I need a new lens over all? Well, I like what I got while there.
After I was done with the Nintendo thing, I went downtown because this was happening. I pretty much got the tail end of it as most of the people had already left. I also get a small group of what looked like trump supporters likely there to troll as they were leaving.
And since Today is International Women’s Day, this might be an appropriate day to post this. And in case anyone says “where is International Men’s Day?” it’s on November 19.
Just outside hollywood at Raleigh Studios. They had little photo booths set up, and a lot of games ready to play. It was a bigger space then I expected, and people will come in in sessions. The first group went in at 10 and played for 2 hours. I was in the 12:30 group. Everything seemed to have gone by pretty fast and I didn’t even realize time was about up till they announced it.
First game I played was Arms. Simple game to learn, but depending on your opponent can be a challenge. The round I played I won pretty easily. I also played Super Bomberman R, Skylanders: Imaginators, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Fast RMX. I also want to mention that I liked Fast. I first saw gameplay of the first game at E3 2 years ago and reminded me of F-Zero.
Anywho, I also recorded some video, and will be online soonish.
Also when pretty good, but get there later then I expected because of delays on my train going down. Didn’t remember raining much at all while there either. Well, I had my cat with me so that was helpful anyways. Not a lot to say of what happened, got lots of good shots, and but over all enjoyed my adventures.
Day one, took a while to get down, and the rain from the last few days didn’t help. But by the time I made it to Long Beach it was sprinkling. Over all everything was pretty good, and the sun ended up coming out in the afternoon. Plenty of good shots during the day, lots of good costumes and humor. But something I really sure do is record video, because now and there there is something silly that happens. That needs to be caught on camera.
Anywho, here is the the set fir the first day.
Ok, now they are online. I hung by the Chinese Historical Society building which i think it a good spot to get everything, and there are the lion dances that happen there to. My timing getting there was pretty good, since earlier in the day I was at the medicare for all rally, then just headed over to my spot which was a mile away, so getting there was not really a problem. Anywho, I also ran into a friend that I haven’t seen in years and after the parade was over we checked some other stuff out.
Strangely enough, I edited the Chinese new years photos first. Then realized I forget about these. Oh well, it was quick. Nice little rally, a lot of people there, some good humorous sings which always makes me happy. While we were in Pershing Square there were two trump supporters that popped up to troll, and police asked them to leave. I felt very temped to troll back and would have done it far worse. Because it’s me. It started off with some speeches then we marched over to City Hall. From there there were more speakers and info for anyone that wished for more info about the rally. But by then I had to take off, because there was another party about to start up soon after, and couldn’t miss that.
Not a whole lot there, sharing photos from both days on here. I pretty much talked about what went on on yesterdays post so I’m not sure about what else I can add to it.
Well, that was wild. We did something new this time, all starting off at Union Station and going in waves. It takes an hour to reach Santa Monica from the starting point, and we hung out at Tongva Park. Then the after party at Del Frisco’s Grille and Ma’Kai Restaurant and Lounge. Two location there were rather close to each other. One area at Ma’Kai’s some people where dancing around doing some other wild stuff themselves. Later in the night a small group of us decide to head towards the beach since we were so close to it. A few people went into the water, which I believe was a bad idea since our water is always cold, and it’s winter here so, nope, not happening on my part. After hanging for a while there, I headed out.
I would say was a good no pants, but one thing i was bothered about was some people not being very discreet about it and bringing music to play while on the trains. Come on, follow the rules of the metro, and do bug the civilians. That’s what the after party is for.
