And now the rest of them. I got there later then I had wanted took and left earlier, but still was able to get a bunch of photos that I still think came out nicely. I rained some during the day, then get really windy, but at least it was nice inside the building.

And my favorite part, the convention took place on what I like to call, the sunny side of the building, because of how the light comes in from the outside while in the lobby.

Now to figure out what the next adventure is.

I had a nice little weekend out. I’ve been needing some content. Now, as much as I enjoyed being there, and seeing friends of mine again that I usually only see at cosplay related events, it seemed smaller this year.

There was two other events going on in the same building so that made it a bit more crowded. There was also another convention happening at the same time Gallifrey One, which is a Dr. Who con. This same thing happened last year too. Hope that doesn’t happen next year, and that LBCE will be bigger by that time again.

Alright, time to upload the photos I got during the day. It was pretty much of the parade, And some video of the lion dances. I’m going to review the rest of those to see what I can also put online. I hung around the Chinese Historical Society building along the route, which really is the best place to see the parade.

Gong hei fat choy…

And now for the rest of them, and the story. From Union we took the Red line to Hollywood to two different groups. I was in the first one and as I was talking photos, I had one lady act rude to me and said she would break my camera if i took any photos of her. I let her know I had no interest in getting her anyways.

Soon after I went in another car and was a guy freaking out about me not having pants and said I should put some on. I looked and him and gave what I like to call a, whatever face. Then others came on after me and it became funnier.

Then to the front stairs of the Highland mall for our group photo, where soon after some security guy came over and started telling us to move, which was our queue to head to Pig n’ Whistle, which is where we spent the rest of our day, and some of the night.

I would say, mission accomplished.

The first set is online. I was the ride captain for the Pasadena end of the Gold Line. We usually meet up at the Sierra Madre Villa Station, but because there was a warning the train might not be running the entire route the meet up with the Del Mar Station. The advisory ended before the day started but we met up at the new location anyways, which, I think was a better place.

From there we went to Union Station, hung out for about 40 minutes, and headed over to Hollywood from there.

And that, is the end of part one of the story.

Another month another gathering. This time with some cosplayers in the mix. And with some of the costumes there, some of these people would have fit in well during Santacon last week. Oh well, next year.

In the mean time, fashion.

And now, the rest of the photos from LA SantaCon ’18. Now where did I end off from? Oh yes, the park playing reindeer games. After that we went to Chinatown and hung out at General Lee’s inside the Chinatown Central Plaza. Well, some people went inside, I was outside with a bunch of other people as they fired off confetti canons. That’s what I’m calling it, I don’t know the actual name but it sounds good to me. There was a good time had in the plaza.

The last stop was at Imperial Western Beer Company in Union Station. A lot of santas partied there, and kept having a good time. Not everyone was inside IWBC. Some were also in the Main lobby across the walk way. And finally, the last place Santa went to was in Hollywood, but I took off before that. I had a long, but still great day. 

And now that”s over there is only one more thing I want to happen this year, to end.

I’ve been waiting all year for this, and it’s finally happened. Oh what a good day. I got a lot of photos from the day so I’m splitting the album up. The rest will be up during the week so be sure to check back in.

As for the day, I got to the start location a bit later then I wanted, which was at this Mexican restaurant we’ve been to another year before, El Mercadito Mariachi. Next we went to Arts District Brewing Company, were santas played some games, and had more of a good time. After that we went to Los Angeles State Historic Park just outside Chinatown were we had our reindeer games like the Treetoss, and Twister. There was also some snow brought in to have snowball fights, but a park ranger got hit on the leg so they decided to have that shut down.

Anywho, that’s the story of the first help, the rest is coming soon. In the mean time, which for photos.

I was at the monthly meet up again last weekend. And it was the third anniversary. I think what I like most of it is how colorful it all is.

At long last, all photos are online. Oh my god, finally, after all of that. Wow, that feels so much better. I honestly have no idea what else to say. And now that it’s november, it’s going to be a long month because not a lot happens. But the next thing to look forward to, the last big and awesome thing I get excited for every year, Santacon. Just be sure it’s happening in a city near you. I know it is for me.

And now, the final set to enjoy.
