Like a flash, the 2014 Long Beach Comic Expo came and went this past weekend at the Long Beach Convention Center. This convention for all things comics underwent some upgrades since last year’s expo. For at least the past two years, the expo had taken place on just one day in Hall C on the main floor. This year, the expo expanded to TWO days, and occurred up in the Grand Ballroom on the second floor to the right. The main operations of the expo had not changed – hundreds of local comic book writers and artists exhibited their merchandise, art, books, toys, and more, either for sale or for show. Elsewhere in other rooms on the second floor to the left, a number workshops and seminars occurred, ranging from speaker panels to art workshops to live activities. In the middle of the second floor, a small room housed the Cosplay Corner, a room dedicated to all those who dressed for the occasion. Aside from the location changes, nothing else drastic changed from the previous years of the Long Beach Comic Expo.

Of course, how can we have a comic expo without the diehard fans dressing up as their favorite fictional character? At any expo involving comics, video games, anime, manga, and more, any attendee cannot avoid seeing another guest participating in the inevitable cosplay for the duration of the event. Cosplay has turned into an art of fans sporting outfits and accessories to appear like another usually recognizable character. Mainstream characters such as The Joker and Deadpool often get selected as the costume of choice due to the fast recognition by many fans, while lesser known characters tend to receive more praise by the fans who recognize the outfit. Overall, those who put the most effort into their costumes gets the most attention, and someone who simply buys a costume does not get as much attention. To those who did a good job on their costume, I would like to thank them, and properly credit them for their photo. As I discover the people I took photos of, I will add their info to each photo. For now, I would like to thank the following individuals for allowing me to take a photo of them, and for sending me a link to their info.
