I always see people with these AMAZING photos of them in their cosplay! I live in Grove City, PA and I was wondering if there are any good places there?

I'm quite a ways southeast of you, but finding a good location in PA is all about knowing the area. For instance, I see that there's a big state park pretty close (to the south) of you. That probably has some water areas (creeks, lakes, ponds, waterfalls) that you could use for some shoots, and beautiful PA foresty areas for others (for instance, we used two local parks for some A:tLA shoots for a combination of waterfall, lake and forest). Small towns in the state tend to be older, so they work well for things set in an early 1900s sort of place, and Pittsburgh has a million little districts, each with their own feel (we're using a small town/city nearby for FMA, as well as certain older areas in Pitt). It's all about exploring!
Another GC cosplayer? Craaazy. GC Memorial Park isn't bad at the right times of year, and you can get great woodsy stuff in the ravines left over from the old mines right next to the baseball fields there. Depending on your costume, there's a bunch of other locations - I just started going Alexander Anderson so I might take shots near one of the older buildings on the GC campus. Downtown GC also has some pretty cool narrow alleyways for those kind of settings, just watchout for pizza drivers, they dart through their fast to avoid all the intersections.
