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.
