We got to the con somewhat early Saturday morning, ready to take more photos. While Mike went to park the car, I warmed up with some hall shots on the gazebo level. It is not often that I am at a con primarily to take photographs, so it took me a bit to get into the zone.
Then we did a shoot with our friend Kenna who was cosplaying as Prince Adam from the live action Beauty and the Beast.
We also tried this mirror shot. It took some doing to frame out the very modern looking hotel in the reflection, but we managed to get it to a point where I could clean up things in Photoshop without too much trouble.
After that we wandered around taking more hall shots down on the atrium/fountain level.
In the afternoon we did a shoot with our friend Jennifer, who was cosplaying as Rey.
Then we wandered down to check out the vendor area. We also got a couple more hall shots there.
We ran into several friends chilling at the tables in the vendor room, and hung out with them for a bit. Then we went back up to the gazebo level to wander and grab some more hall shots.

We were basically shooting in the corner of a gift shop. You can see a rack of clothing right next to us in this behind the scenes photo. It was a small space, but we made it work! (Photo courtesy of Kenna.)
