Picture Kaleidoscope – A-kon 2017

Greetings!

I haven’t done one of these in ages! Not that I haven’t been taking pictures, but with the madness that has been the day job for the last couple of years, I’ve not been able to keep up and repost them.

If you want to make sure not to miss any of my con pics, be sure to follow my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+ accounts as I do post them there as I take them. 🙂

A-kon 2017

The obligatory booth pic! A-kon moved to the Fort Worth Convention Center for 2017. So we were trying some new stuff to make the best use of the space as possible. 🙂

From Black Butler! Lord Phantomhive and Sebastian.

From Zelda Breath of the Wild. The bow looked awesome!

Had to take a pic of this. One of the dealers we see a lot came up with this creation! A Castiel Corset combo! Fab! (Can’t believe I don’t remember the shop name. *cry*)

Star from Star vs. The Force of Evil. Nice!

Black Cat and Lady Bug!

Koro Sensei! The costume was awesome! (His eyes lit up too!

One of the bad guys from My Hero Academia. Great job!

Gorgeous costume! So detailed!

He looked fantastic! Loved the bad attitude! lol.

Vulture Girl? She looked fab!

From the game Bloodborne! So many awesome costumes this year!

Could not get a pic of him from the front, but isn’t this fabulous?!?!

View from the back. Rocket propulsion and everything! Sweet!

And a blast from the past! Sho’nuff – Shogun of Harlem! So freaking awesome!

Can’t wait for next year! 🙂

It’s been so long since I’ve done a Picture Kaleidoscope post!

 

Disney Cruise 2016

Civitavecchia (Rome)

The majority of my pics for Rome got accidentally deleted. Only have those I took with my phone. *cry*

After going to the Vatican, our tour guide brought us here for lunch.

Lovely restaurant with tall windows. Even has an upstairs eating area.

After lunch, we went to a section of Rome’s catacombs. No pictures allowed in the tunnels but there were some artifacts we could see before going below.

This is the lovely ceiling in the chapel in the catacombs area. Isn’t the layering and detail amazing?

Gorgeous, no?

Such awesome work!

Have a great day!

Picture Kaleidoscope – Animefest 2016

Yes, still running behind on all things despite my best efforts. Boo!

Lots happening in the next few weeks so posts may be spotty for a little while longer. Wish me luck!

Animefest 2016

Cool new creation from ChibiChains that debuted at the con. 😛

Isn’t he the cutest thing ever? 🙂

Pic of one of our neighbors. She always has the coolest yukatas.

Our next door neighbors. Lovely miniature painting work.

A close look at some of their awesome work.

Love the robot lady on the left!

Don’t mess with the armored fish ladies!

The dress is super adorable! The ponytail clip was the clincher though. LOL!

Rough crowd. Best steer clear. 😛

Funky group! They look awesome! (Ack, there’s so many games and anime I do not know!)

Death by cuteness? Heh heh.

That is one sweet ride! 🙂

Don’t make her angry now!

They look rather dapper, don’t they? Nice!

A gaggle of Mario princesses. Hmmm.

The Monkey King! He looked fabulous!

And look at that hat!

The StarFox Crew!

Miki-chan!

The Gravity Falls crew! Sweet!

That ax is gorgeous!

And look at those ears!

They came out fantastic! Just recently saw the video they are based on. Amazing!

The Full Metal Alchemist crew! Nice!

People and their creativity are just amazing!

Have not done one of these in quite a while. Apologies!
Life has been way too “interesting”. Eek!

Skies around here have been fabulous the last couple of months. See for yourselves! 🙂

 

Great contrast between the clouds, no? 🙂

Full of hash marks – Heavenly tick tack toe? 😛

Like the heavens were splitting in half – or a dimensional rift? 😛

And what about these pastels? Also love how it splits the sky.

Some neat striation. 🙂

Sunset!

The sun is melting! Melting!

Can you see the cloud UFO? 😛

Loved the cool colors and how the clouds are spread out. Looks almost like a painting. 🙂

Have a fab Wednesday!

Picture Kaleidoscope – SoonerCon 2016

2016 is for some reason just a hard year. Simple things have become difficult – especially software. It is very odd.

Anyway, finally getting the pics uploaded for SoonerCon 2016!

Picture Kaleidoscope – Fan Expo Dallas 6/15/16

Had meant to share these last week, but life has been mighty “interesting” so had to change plans.

Have to do this quickly as I am drowning in work. 😛

Deadpool Chimichanga truck – the menu is a hoot!

Geredos from Pokemon as a Chinese dragon! How cool!

So Cute!

A lot more pics at the Piwigo site. You can see them here.

Out of time!

Picture Kaleidoscope 5/25/16

Morning all!

Yosemite Falls Under Moon Light by Ning Lin at Earthshots.org – looks great! I am assuming the reflection is photo manipulation? I don’t see a lake. But still very cool! You can see more of his work at his flickr account. 🙂

Mountain Monastery by David Lazar at Earthshots.org – awesome view! He’s got even more fascinating pictures from around the globe at his site. 🙂

Owens River Valley by Harry Lichtman at Earthshots.org – loved the subdued pastels. Very soothing, no? His site has other pics with colors so vibrant they feel like a punch! 🙂

Sunrise Las ColinasSneaking in one of mine. Found a new vantage point where I can take pics without the window reflections. What do you think? 🙂 Sunrise in Las Colinas.

Have an awesome day!

 

Picture Kaleidoscope 5/18/16

Sorry about the lack of post last week. Normally work on that the morning off at work (before work time) but I tried to do a site backup and ever since then, I’ve been blocked. Need to talk to IT and see if I can get that fixed or just need to make sure to do the post early! (Easier said than done though! Whee!)

Did run into a new place people can exhibit photos and a great place to find stuff to share. Called Unsplash.

Lovely shot by Joe Reed. Looks awesome screen wide. 🙂

Photo by Geoffrey Arduini – love the whole white out effect from the snow. He’s got lots of other fun stuff to share on his flicker account. 🙂

Another of Geoffrey Arduini’s pics. What a view!

Pic from Dumbo, NY by Valor Kopeny – love how the buildings force you to focus on the lighter colored bridge. Nice! He does wedding and engagement photos as well. 🙂

 

Have a great one!

Picture Kaleidoscope 5/4/16

Morning!

The weather here has been flip flopping like mad. But it has made for some gorgeous sunrises! 🙂

Like melting butter!

Building storms. Wind’s been pretty strong.

Sky blanket! (Windows are dirty. 🙁 )

An even fluffier blanket!

Love the color layers. (Window still dirty. Come on guys! Clean this thing!)

Roiling cloud bank! Like for an alien invasion? 😛

 

Storms are a coming!

As darkness falls….

Love the way the light shifts all over the place.

Alright, I’ll quit torturing you now. 😛 Have a great day!

Picture Kaleidoscope – WHOFest 2016

This past weekend ChibiChains and I had a dealers table at WHOFest!

A gaggle of Doctors and hammy companions? 😛

A Doctor WHO themed belt Drew created while at WHOFest. 🙂

The Sisters are here to help.

K-9 the Doctor’s dog. And one of my favorite characters! 🙂

Even Daleks like to come to WHOFest! Heh heh. (Old and new versions too!)

Vastra from Vicotrian England. And quite a detective in her own right. 🙂

The newest Dalek type rolling through the Dealers’ Room! Wished I’d caught him talking. Dang it! 🙂

Have a great one!
