I guess these kinds of things are also what separate fans from regular enthusiasts. However, I think the term fan has lost some of its meaning in English, being that there's been an introduction of the dichotomy of whether one is actually a fan or a true fan... Fan stems from the Americanized shortening of the word fanatic [a person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm or zeal, as in religion or politics.], people usually associate a "religious fanatic" as having pretty negative connotations however, somehow being a religious fan or perhaps a fan of religion is somehow more acceptably tame. English is becoming more complicated than it should be and evolving too quickly. I guess I don't really like using the term fan when describing myself or perhaps I'm just over-thinking things again. Regardless, it's interesting to see people exhibit such passion for their preferred entertainment choices at comic con.

There was a TV film crew present at ECCC, filming a pilot for something related to cosplay for the SyFy channel from what I understand. I don't know too many details but it looked kind of like a cheesy reality TV style show format.
Other notable events included getting to meet the "cosplay famous" Jessica Nigri, also hailing from Arizona, who is also apparently making a solid living as a promotional model--not a bad gig.
Finally, I managed to squeeze in a small "photo-shoot" with an up-and-coming local PNW cosplayer, Meepy-Gal. Having lost pretty much all my filming equipment in my move back to the US from Germany, I made an attempt in trying out cosplay photography--it's something I'm really not used to doing as I feel I have a decent eye for motion but haven't really put much thought into suggesting aesthetically pleasing static poses. Thankfully Meepy-Gal is a natural at posing so there's less needed from my end. It's all done for fun though.
