The 2009 FAnime is now upon us. I attended FAnime on Friday after lunch time and things got busy quite quickly. Despite being a Friday, turnout was quite high. I also did a number of photo shoots with KittyCatChi (non-cosplay shoot), MissNintendo, CherryTeaGirl5, Hikaru-Jan and Rena-Girl. You can view all the pictures from the photo shoot including just random shots here. Click in to read more and see my favorite shots.
One of the best costumes from all day was a knight whose armor was made purely of leather. The armor is so accurate, it even buckles like a real coat of arms would. It takes another person and 30 minutes to put on the complete armor. The armor was professionally crafted and took 6 months to make and the results are absolutely breath-taking.

Also for those who are interested in the technical details, I shot the majority of the pictures with a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III with Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM and Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II with Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM.
