This is Ultra here with the first installation of a my contribution to The Grid Daily, I like to call “Location Shoot”. The idea behind this post is to give cosplayers and costumers ideas on different places around Kansas City and the surrounding areas, as a fun safe place to take costume pictures. Since I happen to do a lot of driving around Kansas City and I always happen to see locations that I think would be great backgrounds, I wanted to show off some of the creativity that we have in the Kansas City cosplay community. So I decided to document them for you.
Our first location is most likely private industrial property. Before I get started, I would like to say that I always advise that you be as safe as possible when venturing on what might be considered private property. I wouldn’t advise going to this particular spot during weekday business hours. I also suggest avoiding any place where you see signs where “No Trespassing” or “Private Property”, is posted.
As a general rule, “If in doubt, try to contact the owner to get permission.”
I have taken several different pictures, from different angles. I hope this gives you a good idea for planning a shoot here. If it is warm out, there may be bugs or snakes in the rocks so be careful to keep an eye out for nature. This is sort of their home too. Its also on a small hill, so please be careful there too.
There are a few places to park below the spot and across the street. I look forward to doing a shoot here myself, using the walls as sort of a castle backdrop or the small woods for a ninja attack. Im sure you can use your imagination.
More to come.
