Los Angeles Science Fiction Society recently posted photos from a science fiction convention in the 80's. Dik Daniels shot a series of photos of 80's cosplayers. Let's take a look at these old-school sci-fi enthusiasts from the olden days.
On their website, LASFS or Los Angeles Science Fiction Society recently shared photos taken from a 1980 Westercon – A science fiction & fantasy convention where geeks, fans, and enthusiast gather to enjoy various themed festivities like screenings, meet & greets and of course, the costume competition. Did you ever wonder how they did it back then? Dik Daniels’ photos show us how rolled in the 80’s.
Cosplaying now is very different from how it was back in the day. It’s much more technical and competitive now. There are even people who have turned it into a career. There are loads of specialty shops now dedicated to costumes and props. Me, I personally enjoy the DiY culture of cosplaying. I have cosplayer friends who are masters of their craft. Sewing their own costumes and building their props from scratch. I’m quite curious as to how they made their costumes in the 80’s. It’s also amazing to see vintage photos like these as it shows us just how the cosplay culture evolved over the years.
You can check out more photos from this series at LASFS.org.
There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
