Shoot date: April 16, 2016
The last time I found myself at Fairmount Park was for an event called "Cosplay Photoshoots." It was really a great time, so when I heard about a Pokémon themed cosplay gathering at the same park, I couldn't help myself but go.
I tried a different route than what I did last time.
The event was in celebration for Pokémon's 20th anniversary of existing. There was a costume contest, game battles, live music and so much more. I mostly stuck with taking photos though.
Instead of running around trying to catch all the pokémon I could, I decided to let them all come to me. I ended up using the stage area to make as a backdrop, so-to-speak, for studioesque portraits. Every now and then I couldn't help myself but run off to something random that happened to go on but for the most part, I lived on the stage that day.
It was great seeing so many familiar faces and so many new ones. Experiencing this event has made me very excited for the May event that I'm organizing at Griffith Park.
But in any case, here are the photos from that day :)
