Phoenix ComiCon FanFest 2016

This gallery contains 1 photo.

The third annual Phoenix ComiCon FanFest took place this year at the Phoenix Convention Center instead of it’s previous home of the  University of Phoenix Football Stadium  where it had been for it’s first two years of life. I’ve heard there were mixed feelings among some attendees about this move, mainly due to the loss […]

Phoenix FanFest 2016 Pics Coming Soon-ish

For those kind people who allowed me the honor of taking your photo over the weekend at Phoenix ComiCon Fan Fest 2016. I gave you a business card as a gateway link to those photos…I just want to give a little update on that process:

“And so it begins…the monumental task of uploading, Keyword tagging, sorting, selecting, editing, renaming, converting and ultimately uploading the pics from this years #FanFest2016.
And if you think that’s gonna happen in the span of a day or two…you aren’t working my Day-job schedule!!
I am hoping to have a few teaser samples to drop in a few hours…but for the whole thing…gimme a couple weeks.”

It may not actually take Weeks…I can’t say for certain. I am working on them as quickly as possible.

In the meantime…here’s a little sump-in’ sump-in’: Elfy Aubrie on standby as I work with another model passes the time on her phone…

Derp!

Dark Ones August Party 2016 – 7 Deadly Sins

I feel it necessary to inform you that as I was uploading these images to Flickr, and creating this post…my Random Music player was playing “We Are the Champions”…No, I am Not joking…

It’s taken me FAR more time than I had anticipated to get the images from The Dark Ones August Party 2016 – 7 Deadly Sins edited & posted. And I am sorry to say that I am not done with ALL of the pics from the party just yet… Soon (yeah, I know…) Soon I will have them all online.

Here is your “Teaser” image: Random & Ceri. Nothing personal ladies…

The Dark Ones April Party 2016: Elder Gods

ATTENTION: The LINK to the April Party Pics is at the BOTTOM of this post.  Oh, sure…you COULD skip straight to it by scrolling all the way down. But I GUARANTEE you will miss some interesting stuff that you may just wind up regretting for a very long time… Just Sayin’

DARK HORRORS FROM BEYOND!
Older than Angels, darker than Devils…

“Antiquarians say the Elder Gods were Gaia, Thoth, Tiamat, and the Titans, the sires of gods. Darker sources claim the elder gods lay hidden, in a formless Chaos that came before history with names like Azathoth, Yog Sothoth, Shub Niggurath, and the eldritch Cthulhu… the “Great Old Ones”.

Experts on the elder gods are rare, and rarely sane. The most respected and stable are those from Miskatonic University, a center of occult studies and inter-dimensional sciences. The Druid Gannd quoted from a lecture by Dr. LeHo at the school’s Dachaigh Annex “The nexus of power forming here in Arizona implicates a pending visitation to this site.” Gannd followed, “Fellow scholars, join me as we visit these ancient altars.”
The Dark Ones invite all adventurers, occultist, sorcerers, investigators, researchers and Miskatonic Alumni to come to the Dachaigh Campus in Glendale,AZ on the evening of April 30, 2016.”

For my Teaser Images from the set, and to start you all skipping down the path to the Insanity of the Elder Gods, I would actually like to get serious for a moment and highlight the talents of two very good friends, who both “just happen” to be beautiful Redheads. Have I ever mentioned to you that I have a “Thing” for redheads? No? Oh…  Both of these ladies are so hot they could only be illuminated by Flames (Tiki Torches in fact). That is the light source I used to capture both of these portraits.

First is Tori.  She is a model, photographer, and Storm Chaser (No, I’m not making that last one up).
Her Storm Photography has been seen on local news sites here in AZ and elsewhere.
She also sells prints of her personal and storm photography as a “Raw Artist” They are literally as painfully beautiful as she herself is.
Tori is about to embark on an adventure that is a Storm Chasers dream! It’s straight out of the plot of the movie “Twister”!
Tori is one of the newest members of the team who will be attempting to launch a new bit of Storm Technology INTO a Live Tornado!
It’s called The Dust Devil Project. She was also named as one of the speakers at the Upcoming (as of the time of this writing) MonsoonCon 2016. You can keep up to date on all of her exploits on her Facebook Page

My next favorite Redhead is Nola Yergen of Design by Nola. Aside from being a personal friend, Nola is, more importantly
an Award Winning Costume Designer who, as you can see is as Gorgeous as she is talented.
She has worked on several film projects as well as teaching Theatre at Grand Canyon University here in Phoenix Az.

Amazing Arizona ComiCon 2016: Friday 2/12/2016

Finally got thru editing Fridays pics from AACC 2016. They are up on Flickr Right Now.

Stay tuned for Saturday and Sunday coming soon…ish.

This is Trevor as “Ex Excessive”
His dedication to the Craft of Cosplay is like few I have ever seen. He has a following, and to do all he could to make his fans happy he endured extreme discomfort when the Contacts he wore started drying out and irritating his eyes. He never complained to the numerous people asking for photos with him. He waited until there was a lull in the stream of constant requests before finally bowing out and taking care of his contacts (and his own eyes!). Dedication to the Craft. You have my respect Trevor. But next time, don’t put your eyes at risk! I’d hate to lose the opportunity to see how your Cosplay Craft evolves in the future!
