Fan Expo Vancouver and 2012 Canadian Videogame Awards

Vancouver hosted it’s inaugural edition of Fan Expo this weekend attracting thousands of fans from all genres.

Fan Expo Vancouver

If you’ve never been to an event like this, the easiest way to describe it is Halloween on steroids. I’m always impressed to see the lengths some people go to create amazing costumes that celebrate their favorite characters…and are always very open to posing for your camera.

I’ll let my photos do the talking but see if you can recognize any of these characters.

After a day of people-in-costume watching, it was time to head over to the red carpet for the Canadian Videogame Awards show where a mix of celebrities and videogame rock stars paraded by. Red carpet media scrums are always a challenge for me since you usually only get a few seconds to get that great shot in not ideal lighting conditions…especially tricky with groups of people smiling in different directions to the wall of cameras. Nevertheless, here’s some of my favorites:
