After culling out the worst of the bunch.. I'm left with the following captured memories from DragonCon 2014

All indications point to the fact that I had a good time

That Janeway tattoo is one of the better portrait tattoos I've seen. Usually, they look pretty awful.

So first I saw you had pictures of the costume contest and was all excited!  ;D

Then I didn't see any of me and was sad and disappointed.   :'(

But then on the last page there were more contest pics and there I was!  ;D

Thanks so much for posting your pictures!  I've managed to find only a few of me that weren't at the parade and I'm like, visibly grumpy and exhausted in all those.  It's really cool to see how I looked on stage :)

I had to delete SOOO many contest pictures because they were horribly blurry.  I'm not great with the camera so when I had to turn the flash off it was hard to get pictures without motion blur.

Glad you could find yourself in there though!  Feel free to take and use as you wish.  If flikr wont let you download or something i'm happy to shoot you the original image.

Thank you!  I managed to download it from Flickr and would like to put it on my Facebook.  Would you like to be credited as "Zaepho" or some other way? :)

Wow! Great shots!  We've never gone to the costume contest but just might next year.  Pix were t'riffic!  The shots of the light show/concert were fab.  I shoot a lot of concerts and have found that I delete more than I keep.  Unless you have a really fast lens you get a lot of blur.  The other option is flash, but you lose all the colour etc.  Looks like you had a great Con.

Use and abuse away. Credit not strictly necessary but Zaepho works just fine if you feel so compelled.

Thanks!

If the stage for the costume contest has been lighted better it would have worked out fine.  The concert shots were literally (and figuratively) a shot in the dark but I may have been drinking at the time and just having fun. Was shooting with a Nikon D9000 with the stock lens (which as a "One Size Fits All" actually isn't too bad).
