I was at Brooklyn Botanic Garden today for the press preview of Cosplay Fashion Show & Parasol Society.
Sakura trees near the main stage, Cherry Esplanade, were not fully bloomed yet, but other parts of the garden got the all pink trees!
This year will be my third time of participating in the Cosplay Fashion Show, and the first time for Parasol Society. (the Lolita Fashion Show) And the big change for this year has been announced by the BBG Staffs! The white tent at Cherry Esplanade will be replaced to a clear tent which will bring natural day light shooting directly from above, and as a result, photos will come out much better with good lighting source. Besides, since the tent is clear, more audience will have chance to look at the stage from the outside of the tent. And as a show model, I’ll be walking down the aisle by seeing Sakura trees blooming at my sides.
For the background music, Taiko drumming team will play the beat. I had a chance to hear the live play of Taiko at the rehearsal. It’s such a loud, heavy somewhat playful sound (because it’ll make you dance) so it’ll definitely grab people’s attention
Every year, I see an increasing number of cosplayers at the garden, and I’ll be happy to take photos of them. So please wait for my Sakura Matsuri photos in May~
