Nakatomi Tower!

Being a huge fan of Die Hard and recently finding out where the real life Nakatomi Tower is. I thought it would be pretty damn cool to have a photoshoot of some sort there. Not sure what would go good there.

What is your ideas on this? What cosplays would look good there? Is a cosplay photoshoot at a location of a cult classic action flick really worth the trouble to get?

It could be challenging to get photos near the "Nakatomi Tower" building in Century City in Los Angeles. However, it could be much easier to use the building from a few blocks or more away. It would be much easier to get the whole buidling ing the frame without having to use extreme low angles, and you could find a less difficult location to avoid the complications of getting permission.

True, that helps, thanks! How hard would it be to get permissions to do something like that? To get roof access and stuff.

Anyone think that parts of the tower were kept the same from when the film was originally shot?

This and this might be helpful. The location is actually called Fox Plaza, and may actually be a public area in certain parts. Gaining roof access may be hard in today's security tightened world. But you may be able to at least go to the public areas. Not sure sure if cosplay would be appropriate though. It appears Fox Plaza is an office complex, and a shopping area. Security might be a little anal. Maybe a trek over to Fox plaza as a normie just to look around would be a good idea.
