View Full Version : Lionel's apologies to anyone missed during the picnic

Today was the fated day.... the camera I've used for over 2 years to cover over 30 convention reports and thousands of cosplayers around the country and even in Japan died today from silicon wear and tear. It DIED! I've already done analysis on it at the aiport and showed all the symptoms of a typical video chip gone bad. Anyway, since I did not bring the back-up camera, I was kinda "not all there". It's kinda like Cyclops without his visor, if that makes any sense.

The shots I did take of anyone are perfectly fine and safe. The memory card is A-Ok. Thanks to Wayne#2 for letting me borrow the old standby camera. Thanks to Jenny for letting me borrows hers, too! I love you, Sana-chan! hahaha I just wanted to say that. hehe

MY SINCERE APOLOGIES to ANYONE I missed during the dead-camera analysis time when I coulda been taking pics of your excellent costumes. I know I missed the excellent Lulu and Aimee's lovely costume and ugg... I hope Kyle got shots of you! Again, I'm sooo sorry! ;_; And I'll be sure to catch you at Fanime/AX and future cons!

Sorry to hear about your camera. Hope you can get it fixed/replaced soon, and that it won't cost you an arm and a leg.

I love you too, Lionel!!

Oh man tho, that really sucks that your camera died @_@. I kinda had a bad feeling when you were all having difficulties with it earlier while taking pictures. If I was rich, I'd donate some money to you so you can get a new one lol XD.

Ah man, that sucks...but at least you saved the other pictures...hopefully. ^_^ Here's hopin you'll get a new one that's just as good if not better! ^_~

Lionel - so sorry about your camera! I hope that's not a big financial issue for you! :(! Yeah, sorry I had to leave, I have really fair skin and I was getting pretty badly burned, plus my husband was tired. :) so no worries! Thanks for being such a sweetie and taking everyone's pics!

I just felt the need to interject something into this thread, however stupid and pointless that interjection may of have been.
