Coming into my third year volunteering for Anime Expo, I had just recently discovered the world of itasha, anime-wrapped JDM cars (with few exceptions) featuring the driver’s favorite character, waifu, or anime series. As a paid employee of iJDMTOY, I had to make at least one visit of the car section in the entertainment hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. So equipped with a more adequate camera, I started snapping away with the office DSLR.
A few weeks ago I posted some JDM cars on social media featuring anime stickers and full body wraps from my second ever carmeet experience. Coming in not knowing what to expect, I arrived with a friend and armed with a piss-poor Oneplus One camera phone, I began taking pictures of almost all the cars that I could.
