I know this is a super late post, but something I like to share either way. So yeah… Ever since I started going to San Diego Comic Con (as far back as 2013), it has been the tradition for me to do a cosplay shoot before the convention week.
Wonderland Studios is huge. It’s a repurposed warehouse in Orange County, 10 minutes away from Disneyland.
Of course this wouldn’t have happened without the help of friends who took their time off for this Sunday to happen. I got to share the space with Pat, who has been pretty active in shooting cosplay for his upcoming book. It’s equally awesome that A.J. has been helping us out for the past 3 years, and then some. I also got to meet some lovely cosplayers, and I think I should make it a tradition of working with new faces every year.

Here’s the 360 shot of the studio before all the mayhem started.
And here are the behind-the-scenes of the things we’ve been doing…
