This Sunday from 1-6 PM, the coordinators of WhedonCon put on a pre-con cosplay potluck at Griffith Park. As get-togethers go it was pretty chill, with some food laid out on a picnic table and cosplayers and photographers mingling in and out as there was another cosplay event going on at the same time in Griffith Park. It was a pleasant place to hang out for a few hours, nerd out over various fandoms with people, and snap photos of some great cosplays. It definitely got me pumped for WhedonCon!

One should never miss the opportunity to look like a badass while cosplaying.

And the pièce de résistance – Buffy cosplay! Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a show that spoke to a generation, and still lives on today. There’s just something so timeless and hardcore about a female teenager becoming the Slayer and fighting vampires, demons and the forces of darkness in her own backyard. It was a treat to have the famous Spike/Buffy/Angel love triangle present for a photo shoot.

Sword fights are a must when it comes to a good photo shoot.
