I spent some time wandering around in San Jose over the long weekend. Fanime was in town. I had fun shooting all manner of strangely dressed kids as they walked between the convention and hotels. My wife kept telling me to ask the costume clad cosplayers to pose for my photos, but I refused. I was after recording the experience as an observer; not as a participant. I think I succeeded. I give you Socially Awkward Elf. She was not alone.
