Two things about this shoot made me feel old.
First, I mistakenly copied and saved the mobile number that Leona gave me. So on the day of the shoot, I messaged and called some unfortunate stranger a number of times. With my luck, I probably called some big bruiser of a guy by a girl’s name. This, of course, is on top of me and my subject waiting for each other at two separate gates within the same location.
Second, I was the only person there that actually played (and I think finished at least once) the Super Mario Bros. game that first featured the character Leona was cosplaying for the shoot.
