My original plan was to just show up, take pictures of the cosplayers, and go home. But what I was not expecting was to see a myriad of colors! So many people, so many cultures, so many styles of dancing! I ended up sticking around and taking pictures of pretty much the whole event.

So just about every single Sakura Matsuri, I run into my sister Crissy. She usually wears a kimono, Priestess Rei Hino, or something appropriate for the event. When I run into her, I end up taking a few pictures for her website, Sailor Moon Avatars. But this time, now that I have my new camera and she was with a few mutual friends of mine, I decided to snap photos of us for today.
This was an impromptu shoot with my friend Blossoming Cosplay. We did this right after the Sakura Matsuri Cosplay Fashion Show. She was a bit tired, so I snapped off these photos real quick. I didn’t want to take up too much of her time. But in the time I took the photos and processed them, they came out amazing!
So about a few weeks ago, I made this long post about my thoughts on this notion of 28 days on black cosplay. Many people asked me why I spoke about it. Simple really… Noone else would. I knew that right after I opened my mouth and kicked over that wasp nest that there would be people who would respond, not in a good way. I am thankful that people of all races and creeds agreed with what I said. I also discovered that there were other black cosplayers out there who felt the same way as I did. But that isn’t why I’m writing this. Let me tell you what happened when I met and sat down with Harry… Or as I like to call him, Black Panther.
