Cosplay Gen: What keeps you going in cosplay? (friends, the challenge in each costume, experience, attention)
Kyle: My friends are definitely the primary factor that keeps me in cosplay, with the challenge and experience at a close tie for second. I have made and maintained many friendships through conventions that I hope to never loose.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I have travelled to dozens of conventions in seven different countries; indeed, the cosplayers and locations are vastly different, but things are more or less the same. From a photographer’s point of view, you arrive around noon, roam to find people you know, then maybe start taking photos or just socialize. By evening, attendees wrap up and return to their respective accommodation, sometimes accompanied by a dinner group. This is not the case for US conventions.
