Hey everyone,

*Whew!* After barely managing to escape the snow-storm that hit Columbus Sunday afternoon, despite some delays, I made it back home safely from Ohayocon 2004. :D (So there wasn't a WASFU-con ver. 1.5 this weekend, but that could happen 3 weeks from now at Katsucon..)

While I'm still awake, I decided to u/l a few pictures for people to see during the day until I upload more after work tomorrow night. So usually after 7pmPST each night I'll put more up, about 200-300 a night until I post them all. I have to say I was quite pleased with the pictures that I took as well as the costumes. Overall I took over 1500 pictures, a lot which are from the photoshoots that my friends and I did. (Thanks to Darcy, Michelle, Christina, Rogue & Flexi, the Limebarb trio, and more.) :) Here's the link to the pics:

It was nice seeing my regular East Coast friends and a pleasure meeting new people that I may have seen at previous cons last yeat but officially meeting them in person. I look forward to seeing everyone again at upcoming cons like Katsucon, Anime Central, A-kon, and more. I apologize in advance if I didn't take your picture, since it did get busy late-Friday and Saturday, so I'll make it up to you next time.

Please comment here on the pictures as they go up, and also leave comments on your fave pics (Keep the comments CLEAN, tho..) and if you'd like to use the pictures that you see in your gallery or website, go ahead but please credit me for any usage of them. ;) Thanks, and enjoy!!

I'll put photos up in a little while, maybe Tuesday. Got some resizing to do on them ... I don't care if anyone takes them but then again if you don't want something up that I have, let me know and I'll take it down.

Thanks for the compliments so far, everyone! :) I appreciate your patience as I'm doing to best I can, and I know you all want to see the Saturday costume pics, but I like going in the order that I took them, and there were good costumes on Friday too. So please hang in there as I post about 300 pics a night to eventually reach 1500+. Comment on the pics and keep checking my gallery every evening for more pics! :skidude2:

Very cute, Al! Man, you looked so rushed this weekend. I hope you took the time to eat and sleep! ^_~

HealerKou: C. yeah, I managed to eat about 2-3 times on each day of the con, but there were times when I couldn't finish even half the food I ordered like at Subway or Chicken&Eggs, (it was great-tasting!) but I think I couldn't concentrate on stopping to eat while the con was still going.. I get that way sometimes where I'd rather NOT eat and concentrate on getting pictures rather than be away from the con to eat lunch or dinner, and then WAIT until the day's events are over before eating a lot.. :thumbsup: And sleep? I managed to get enough on Friday night and Saturday night, but knowing me, I woke up at 7:00am on Saturday morning to get ready and go searching for cosplayers.. Just give me 5-6 hours and I'll be fine! ;)

UPDATE: I've posted ALL of Friday's pictures (over 600 alone!) and started on some of Saturday's pictures. Tomorrow night I'll be posting more, and you'll see the pics from the Final Fantasy photoshoot, the cosplay.com photoshoot, and more cosplayers from that busy Saturday at Ohayocon! Keep checking and leaving those comments! :D

Man, those berserkers...
Love the pictures as usual ^^. Thanks for taking all those pictures of everyone I somehow managed not to see:P
I see you got pictures out in the snow ^^. Still not enough snow to break out the bikini and a pair of ears again, though:P.

*Whew!* Finished posting over 1000 pics so far, (my MINIMUM amount per convention) and the time-frame at this point is just after the cosplay.com photoshoot, so that would make it around 1:30pm on Ohayocon-Saturday. There's still a lot to go, so please check them out and comment as I continue posting the rest.. ;)

NOTE: After work tomorrow, I have a family dinner to attend and won't get home until late, so I probably won't have time to post any new pics until Friday evening. :lost: But I promise that this weekend I'll finish the rest, so that everyone will see the remainder of the pics before the SuperBowl Sunday is over.. :D By Friday night I'll have posted the photoshoots of the Beserker Yuna & Rikku & Advent-Children Sephiroth (the Limebarb Trio) and the GGX-trio (Rogue, Flexi, & Darcy) and more cosplayers. So thanks again for everyone's patience and comments! ciao~

Woah, that's a lot of pictures. What type of camera did you use? Personally I have a Canon S200 with a 128mb and a 64mb cf card for storage. Didn't even fill the 128mb one for this convention though.

Gaaaah you have such great photos! :) ::Claps and hands him a cookie..better yet, some..PUDDING!!!:: HAHAH I really like some photos of me in there! :) I didn't think I would turn out that good but better than I hoped! ^___^ ::Glomp::

*glomps* Euro-sama, all of your pictures turned out wonderfully! Nice action shots and the ones you got of me were great too! I was the Shuichi that you spent most of Saturday night with.....the one that fell because of the missing chair. Augh, that's still so embarassing!

Hey...um....I love looking at your galleries...but somehow my group has missed you at the past few cons and our pictures aren't in there...did you take any pictures at Ohayocon of the Petshop of Horrors group? I was kind of sad not to see us in there :lost:

Jayyne: Yeah, I loved your skit since I saw it from the audience POV :) , but later on it got crowded outside the masquerade room, and the cosplayers were coming out of the room, some staying behind for pics while others went downstairs or back to the rooms. I saw that your group was upstairs right outside for a little bit, but when I was taking pics of some other groups, I look again and didn't see you all. :( I wasn't sure if you went downstairs, and I did take a look but didn't see your group. Sorry if I missed your pics, since it does get VERY hectic for a photographer right after a masquerade lets out, and hopefully if I see you at the next convention I'm at, I'll be sure to get some good pics of your group. Promise :)

Loki: Yesh, I remember you, Ashley.. It was fun hanging out together with you Saturday night, watching the BLOOD concert and I'm glad you're ok after that tumble while we were standing on the chairs.. :thumbsup: I didn't get a good-bye picture with you on Sunday, so you dressed as Shuichi on Saturday night will have to do.

*BIG SIGHHHHH* Well, I managed to post ALL of my pics from Ohayocon, and glad I managed to finish posting them before 1 complete week had passed since the con. Now I can relax tomorrow and watch the SuperBowl w/o hurrying to finish posting pics. ;) (Katsucon pictures I think will take about 2 weeks to post them ALL..)

Thanks to everyone who I saw at the con, and posed for pics & photoshoots. I hope you like how your pics as well as the rest of them turned out, and I apologize again if you searched through the 1550+ pics and didn't see your photo. I strive to do the best I can, but being the only mod at Ohayocon representing the site and photographer to cover it, I can only do so much. :thumbsup: So I appreciate your patience, understanding, and I look forward to seeing you all again at the next con, and we'll do this ALLLLL over again soon enough. Thanks again, since without you cosplayers and your wondeful costumes, I wouldn't be able to get these pictures. So while you applaud me, I applaud you as well. :bigtu:

Hello Luffy with glasses! Were you the Luffy with the Zoro and Sasuke and Zombie? I was a Luffy without glasses! :bigtu: Alas, I don't know about lower Ohio and West Virginia. I'm almost all the way at the top. X.x;;

No I was just by myself. My friend was going to go as Zoro, but he chickened out and just went as himself
