Comicon 2010 is here.  My bag is packed. Two cameras , one dress, and four pairs of bubblewrap glasses in case I get any messages from the eighth dimension. I started photographing conventions in 2004, when my public access show Dungeon Majesty, was asked to be special guests at KublaCon a gaming convention in San Francisco. As I walked around dressed as my character Mystika, (a chaotic neutral necromancer),  I found instant camraderie with fellow gamers and cosplay enthusiasts.  With fandom abound and in it’s highest form, I felt it was my duty as a photographer to document this wildly misunderstood phenomenon. 

For three solid days I’ll be photographing the Comicon realm and sharing it here on the BUST blog.  My companion this year is Miss Adriana Yugovich, of Nerdegade , who will also be sharing  daily doodles about our adventures.  STAY TUNED TO THIS PORTAL!
