Flickr a Day 192: Comic-Con Cosplayers

Crowds will be enormous if past SDCC Saturdays are any indication. The 41st annual Masquerade ball commences at 8:30 p.m. More costume wearers will descend on the Convention Center today than any other. Hence, context for our selection shot by Pat Loika on July 20, 2013, using the Sony Alpha DSLR-A200. Vitals: f/8, ISO 100, 1/125 sec. 40mm. You have to see this photo full resolution to appreciate the detail and the subjects’ poses.

Pat’s Comic-Con 2013 album/set is among the best “being there” pictorials you will find on Flickr. His WonderCon 2015 collection—175 pics—is excellent, and his camera is firing this week in San Diego, too. He joined Flickr in August 2005.

As for me, Comic-Con day three is a treat. July 11th is my birthday, and this is the first fest in my seven years attending to coincide (ignoring Preview Night in 2012). I’m tired, also, but looking for fun. Who wouldn’t?
