Hey everyone,

Looking to round up any cosplayers/zombies for a photoshoot this Sunday in Balboa Park (San Diego).

I know it's an odd mix - the idea actually came from going to Anime Conji a few weeks ago ( photos (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikerollerson/sets/72157623822580482/)), the San Diego zombie walk a couple nights ago (photos (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikerollerson/sets/72157623878776400/)), and asking myself "Cosplayers one weekend, Zombies the next weekend, what next?" -- Maybe I just couldn't think of anything else, but "Zombies vs Cosplayers" sounded interesting!

Cosplayers battling zombies, zombies attacking cosplayers - might make for some interesting photos!

I've got a few zombies lined up so far (from the link above) and trying to gather some more (and cosplayers) who are up for it.

It will be this Sunday (April 25), 3PM, Balboa park (meet at the Fountain in front of Reuben H. Fleet Science Center Balboa Park.) And if anyone else has a costume they'd like a personal photoshoot in (either you or your group) I'd be happy to do that there also!

I have one of my photographer friends that I met at Anime Conji coming out, so together I'm sure we can get some awesome photos for everyone!

Let me know if you're interested

Thanks :)

Event is now over - please email me if you'd like to be notified of any future cosplay photoshoot events in San Diego!

Friendly reminder - happening Sunday, April 25th (tomorrow!)

Please leave any weapons (real or fake) at home to avoid any trouble. If you'd like some photos with them, I'd be happy to set a photoshoot up, but lets not bring them into the park to prevent any problems. Details are all the same still - we'll be waiting until about 3:10 before moving on, so if you arrive after that you might not be able to find us! (but really, how hard is it to spot a group of zombies/cosplayers?)

Hope to see you there!

For anyone without a costume, we can also use "victims" for the photos!

Thank you to all who came out today! I had a great time and hope you all did as well.

When I thought it couldn't get better than Zombies & Cosplayers, I was proven wrong. It can get better. With cake (no lie) - thank you to those who brought out the snacks today and happy birthday! (I'm sure it was an odd one)

Pictures will be posted over the next few days to http://www.MikeRollerson.com so feel free to check them out/use them.

If anyone would be informed of any other upcoming photoshoots like this, send me an email and I'll be happy to let you know as soon as we've got a date/place for the next one!

Thank you again - I REALLY do appreciate you all coming out. I couldn't have done it without all of you (well, it would've been boring without any zombies vs cosplayers to say the least).
