    Time to move on to the amazing Tricks at VapeCon 2016

    Am busy compiling a few sets of photos that highlight some of the excellence that was on display.

    Just going to leave this here for now to set the tone...

    First off, look at the size and perfectly clear shape of this ring...

    VapeCon_2016-238LowRes.JPG

    There seems to be an older ring lurking in the background ;-)

    Check out this great sequence (left to right, then down)

    Let's make a ring and then move around it as it hovers upward and starts deforming...

    This is just amazing

    Sequence is left to right, then down.

    Look what is created here ;-)

    Let's start with the makings of something - quite a dense ball of vapour at first...

    VapeCon_2016-252LowRes.JPG VapeCon_2016-253LowRes.JPG


    Then let's shape it a bit and get it just right and ready...

    VapeCon_2016-254LowRes.JPG VapeCon_2016-255LowRes.JPG

    Voila - a heart! Incredible... :h:

    Moving on

    Check this out. Blowing several smaller rings through a big ring...

    Edit
    PS - what's that on the floor - a piece of a mod? Only noticed it now, lol. Probably was a piece of a fitting from one of the stage banners..

    Now lets take a ring for a walk ;-)

    Notice the VapeCon promo girl in the background laughing as the cloud ring is ushered across the stage...

    Now let's launch a cloud ring

    First it is produced and then shaped...

    VapeCon_2016-276LowRes.JPG VapeCon_2016-277LowRes.JPG

    Wait, is that a cap about to be thrown through the cloud ring? Looks like it. I didn't see this sequence on the day. My gosh...

    VapeCon_2016-278LowRes.JPG VapeCon_2016-279LowRes.JPG

    Edit
    PS - that's the VapeCon / ECIGSSA marquee in the background of the last two photos ;-)

    Wicked combination this!
    Not sure what to call it but it looks like something from outer space - in a galaxy far... far away...

    VapeCon_2016-281LowRes.JPG


    Not sure exactly what's happening in this photo - but it looks like the ring is being sucked back ;-)
    Nevertheless, its an action shot. Just look at the pose and the stance!

    VapeCon_2016-283LowRes.JPG

    Oh, there is that piece of something on the floor again. Lol

    And finally, am not sure what shape this is but it looks very interesting. Maybe that's the Alien everyone is going crazy about ;-) Very impressive.

    VapeCon_2016-284LowRes.JPG

    Brendz, @HouseOfVape is that you in these photos above?

    And another superb one of a ring and cloud going through a bigger ring.

    That stance is classic!

    Another great creation

    First up, assume the crouched pose and draw in as much vapour as possible...

    VapeCon_2016-303LowRes.JPG

    Then make a ring and blow some amazing shapes through it!

    VapeCon_2016-304LowRes.JPG VapeCon_2016-305LowRes.JPG

    Just marvellous!

    Not sure what to call this but it is super impressive.

    The stance, the haze.... the wobble in the O - wow, just super.

    A big congrats and thank you to all the trick artists on the day!

    You guys put on an incredible show.

    Wow, it's quite incredible looking carefully at the photos afterward to see the focus, concentration and determination on your faces.

    Well done to all.

    VapeCon 2016 was filled with fun and laughter.

    That was probably the best part. To see plenty ECIGSSA members and many more with such smiles on their faces made the day very special!

    Here are some of the happy vapers...

    Group shot - lots of smiles. Is that you @Keith Milton with the red jacket?

    VapeCon_2016-92LowRes.JPG


    Thumbs up - lets have a vape!

    VapeCon_2016-149LowRes.JPG

    The backdrop here was actually the Vape SA stand. Nice that you put the supporting vendor and VapeCon logos on it @Cait !

    Love this photo of @Lim (from Dragon Vape)

    VapeCon_2016-412LowRes.JPG


    And here is one of @ddk1979 and myself - is that a better photo @ddk1979 ?
    @ddk1979 was the winner of the NCV competition and came up from Cape Town to enjoy the day.
    That's not a good one of me now.... lol...
    Oh wow, only noticed the fancy forum name tag now @ddk1979 - that's cool!
