My limited exposure to comics in Oregon was at a shop inundated by guys in black t-shirts. So I thought it would be at RCCC, otherwise known as Rose City Comic Convention in Portland.
Thankfully that was not the case.
I was rather surprised at the number of cosplayers and media fans that were here.
Especially at the depth of quality many showed like these fan made droids.
Definitely a place to be photographed.
It wasn't all mainstream.
With enough variety in the booths to give many something to look at.
From classic toy robots to talking pieces of wood.
Many artists of comic books and fan art were present.
Plus you could find parts for your own dress-up desires.
Sure there was mixing of fandoms.
But who are you going to call?
Perhaps this guy who spent three years making this amazing Ghostbusters Proton Pack complete with flashing and moving lights.
Not to fear though, there was some anime there. Like this lovely girl who dressed as Maka Albern from Soul Eater.
