#FrostCon 2015 #Toronto

This was my first time at FrostCon but I assure you it won’t be my last. I have gone to Anime North,ComicCon and Fan expo, all of which I had a great time. I began going to these events merely for the opportunity to photograph these colourful individuals. Besides the little I know about the Marvel and DC comic book characters, I know nothing about the gaming and Anime world. At my first event of this kind I developed a fondness for the people in the costumes. I can’t help but feel the energy they bring to the event. Positive, funny and loving people dressed up in the favourite characters.

FrostCon was overflowing with this energy, much more then the other events I have been to. It was intimate and I didn’t feel the corporate presence the others have. This one felt more like a family reunion, although I was that stranger invited to the reunion I felt like part of the family. Join me as I show you what I got to see.

Angel Creations really got my attention, The art really appealed to me, I thought it was because it was of people I knew and she had done a really good job drawing them. However, after speaking with the artist Leslie Doyle it became clear to me why I was drawn to her work more that any other. It was candid portraits she drew, very similar to what I like to shoot. People focused on something either then my lens or in her case the artist. Love these drawings!  http://angel-creations.deviantart.com/

So, here I was trying to take a picture of the art in the booth and the interaction of the sales lady with the Christmas themed warrior. When a  (shelle-chii) popped in the frame and got the other two ladies in on the action toying into the lens. Thanks for the laugh, it was so much fun.

Here’s a refreshing idea (Pun intended). Having ice water available for the guest to quench their thirst. I go to many events and this is the first to have water available the old fashioned way, in a pitcher of water and ice free of charge.  I normally get hosed with the price of bottle water that may quench my thirst but leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Thank you to the organizers of this fantastic event!!!
