The Desert Is the Best Place for a Journey Photo Shoot
The Traveler from the game Journey has an eye-catching costume on its own, but what if you put the character in a sweeping, epic desert? Cosplayer Angela Bermudez did just that. Knowing that she was going to Egypt and would have the opportunity to get photos taken in the gorgeous natural setting of the desert, she quickly put together a Journey cosplay. She said that’s not how she prefers to work on costumes — she’d rather take her time. However, the appeal of shooting this particular costume in the locale was irresistible.
This background is something that could be faked with photo manipulation, but man, there’s nothing quite like the real thing. The landscape and the way the wind is catching the costume makes it look like she belongs in the video game. Take this as a lesson to always be ready to jump if seemingly wild and crazy opportunities come your way. This is also a lesson about looking outside the studio for shooting locations.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
