    Sneaky Zebra Shows Off Some of The Best Cosplays From San Deigo Comic-Con

    Sneaky Zebra Shows Off Some of The Best Cosplays From San Deigo Comic-Con

    San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone. For those who were lucky enough to attend, a lot of absolutely fantastic things transpired. Awesome trailers were dropped, exciting announcements were made, fun exhibits were had, and I'm sure someone made a friend for life. If you're like me, however, you had to miss out on Comic-Con and had to relegate yourself to living vicariously through your friend's social media feeds. What I'm most bummed about was missing out on all the awesome cosplay. Luckily, the classy gentlemen over at Sneaky Zebra have us covered.

    Here Are 10 Great (And Inventive) Cosplays from Long Beach Comic Con

    Long Beach Comic Con has come and gone. Despite the blistering heat and subsequent rain, attendees still came ready to rock with their cosplay. Some, understandably, decided to roll with something a little bit more comfortable. Others decided to go all out in spite of the heat. Either way, a good time was had by all.

    This Amazing Spider-Man Cosplay Marriage Proposal Will Melt Your Heart

    This Amazing Spider-Man Cosplay Marriage Proposal Will Melt Your Heart

    The second year of Titan Con held at Cal State Fullerton kicked off at the end of April and it was even bigger than last year. A lot of great cosplayers and photographers came out for the free event. Seeing a lot of nerds dressed up probably confused some of the students there who didn't know what was happening, but that's okay.

    I Photograph Superhero Cosplayers, Here's Why Gwenom Is So Much Tougher To Shoot Than Spider-Man

    I Photograph Superhero Cosplayers, Here's Why Gwenom Is So Much Tougher To Shoot Than Spider-Man

    I shoot Spider-Man cosplayers a lot. I’m willing to admit that it’s become my bread and butter when it comes to cosplay photography over the past year. There’s just something fun and charismatic about Spider-Man and the overall Spider-Verse to me. Spidey poses tend to be more dramatic than typical superhero poses, with someone just standing there looking steadfast and heroic.

    Comic Excitement 2017 Was Bad for Attendees, Worse For Vendors

    Comic Excitement 2017 Was Bad for Attendees, Worse For Vendors

    Comic Excitement Convention had its debut from Saturday, January 14th, to Sunday, January 15th and I had the chance to go. This was a first-year convention, but I had high hopes given two things. The success of Nerd Bot Con last year which became my reference point for what I can expect from a first-year con and the price of admission which was $49 for both Saturday and Sunday.

    What I Learned From Photographing Hyper Dedicated Spider-Man Cosplayers

    What I Learned From Photographing Hyper Dedicated Spider-Man Cosplayers

    In an effort do more adventurous things with my life, I started going to cons again this year. To say that it's been an interesting experience is a severe understatement. I've learned a lot of things along the way and have met some rather interesting people. One thing that stuck out to me, of course, is how insane the cosplay scenes have gotten.
