She is taking a, strange looking bath. And has clothing on. Huh.

A one day convention taking place at the Pasadena Convention Center, pulled off by the same people that gave us NerdBot Con. It was a lot of fun for something that took place in such a short time period. Along with the vendors and panels, there was also live music, like that of Jason Paige singing the original Pokémon theme. My main focus was to take photos, and would say I got a lot.

And now, time to enjoy the show.

Back for the second time around, the convention once known as Ninja-Con, Ronin Expo will be in Little Tokyo. I will be there to take photos. Won’t be in cosplay because I just want to focus on photos as of now.

From the same people that brought NerdBot Con, comes another convention with pretty much the same vibe. Live music, vendors, game tournaments. Thought only one day, it’s a nice little party to take part of. I’ll have photos up later this week.

When you are at the store and he is taking everything over.

My gf and I went to Studio Chibi in DTLA for her monthly Harajuku meetup. It was a set studio shoot where my gf choose the Tatami Mat. It is mental health awareness month and she did this style to bring out awareness for mental illness and that my gf is actually diagnosed with mild depression and anxiety. Menhera literally means “mental health” and it is a form of Yami Kawaii meaning “sick cute”. This is her alternative goth style of Menhera. Check out Harajuku Day page on Facebook. Maybe you can join us. Also, want to learn more about my gf’s style, alternative fashion, and other things check out her blog, The Occasional Other.

I always enjoy seeing there guys, not sure why, but just think they are cool. Just wish I can get up close to one again, like one I saw long ago that I actually got to touch it’s feathers.

I really do enjoy taking photos of her. While out during the weekend we found this interesting background, and used it.

Finally, pride season has started, and what a day I had. I got in the parade with a group of cosplayers, and the crowd loved us of course. The entire parade takes place on Ocean blvd, which is mostly residential but are all supportive people. Some places have little parties going on in front were I often find myself talking to and hanging out with some people after the parade is over. A friend with me got blessed by one of the sisters of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, which a video is coming of that. Got flashed, a friend with me was given a beer, had my hair played with, and we got a few buy one get one free chipotle cards. All awesome, but the last being my favorite, because chipotle.

Party season has returned.
