These photos are from my July, 2012 trip to Reno, Nevada. I was in town for a convention, but there was a major street festival right outside my hotel, so I skipped most of the presentations and when out taking photos. Most of these have not been previously published, a few were published in color but are now shown in black and white.

All morning and right up through the end of the parade rain was hanging in the air.  A few drops fell, but the Art Car Parade was spared.  The Cadillac commercial vehicle is often parked on 19th street in the Houston Heights.  Volunteers use roller skates to get around because the car staging is spread out for over a mile.

These photos are from the 2015 Houston Art Car Parade with around 300 entrants in the show.  It’s as much or more about people and craziness as it is about the elaborately decorated cars.  This is the first set, I will publish more tomorrow.

This gallery of photos from the weekend’s Anime Matsuri event represent two extremes of cosplay.  One is the Lolita.  Rather than being a specific character from fiction, Lolita is a style of woman in a mix of Victorian and Asian style clothing characterized by elaborate print fabrics.  The other extreme is men cross dressing as female anime characters.  This gallery has been significantly revised since its original publication.
