There was also some confusion as someone told the atendees who already had their armbands that once the doors opened at 11 they could enter the convention center using the outside stairwell. I was part of the crowd that was halfway to the second floor before another volunteer told them to turn back. Naturally, this made a total mess of the lines - such as they were at that point - and I opted to sit in the shade and wait for things to clear out before trying to get into the building.
Thankfully, my partner in crime for the day, Janna, was running late, so this left me in a nice visible location for her to track me down before we entered the convention center - Green Arrow and Black Canary.
This is the one picture I have of the two of us together - ironically with another Black Canary cosplayer, who wanted a pic with me. Janna is the Black Canary on the right. I didn't catch the name of the Black Canary on the left. I don't think I will ever look as awesome as I do in this picture ever again in my life. XD
For the better part of the day, I spent more time posing for pictures than I did taking them. I didn't get much chance to play photographer until after the cosplay contest, when everyone was milling about waiting for the results. Still, I did get some choice pictures and saw some amazing costumes.
