Aside from this blog, Chris Evan’s dog, and Cate Blanchett, my greatest love is probably cosplay. I love designing, I love creating, and I love collaborating with artists who share passions similar to mine. I’ve learned a lot about the community over the past few years, and I’ve learned that one of the most important relationships/connections that a cosplayer can foster is the one between photographer and cosplayer (you can read my post detailing the intricacies of this relationship here).

We spent last weekend at Anime Los Angeles, located at the Ontario Convention Center, and let me tell you, the fashion did not disappoint. Between cosplay and the Japanese street fashion featured in the ALA fashion show, I felt like I’d entered into anime heaven, which apparently looks a lot like Harajuku fashion. If this kind of style interests you, here’s some designers that you should definitely check out.
