Photos/Video: The Girls of Comic-Con
When it comes to best costumes, West Hollywood wins the award during Halloween. Any other time of the year, the honor goes to San Diego (perhaps Los Angeles in the future) where the annual Comic-Con was held last weekend.
For photographer Jonathan Nafarrete (you might know him as Jonathan360 on Twitter), dressing up is where it's at when it comes to photography. "Their costumes and everything are so elaborate," he explained, noting that well-dressed women become sort of a spectacle at the conference.
Nafarrete used his Canon 5D Mark II to take photos, but also video. "I'm originally a photographer but I'm trying to get into video," he said. That particular Canon model has been popular with filmmakers lately -- it was even used to film the season finale of "House." His video is below.
