It was the first Saturday of August, which means it's time for fans to celebrate their love for Sailor Moon! After Lisa Terlato started International Sailor Moon Day in New York City, the Los Angeles chapter followed soon after, run by Rachael Klinger of Tomo Neko Productions, Travis Tyler Black of Sailor Moon L.A. and Erica Espejo of Scarlet Rhapsody. Angelenos gathered at Sycamore Grove Park in Mount Washington for a themed picnic, cosplay contest and day of all things magical. The synth-pop, experimental, one-woman band Plasmic performed for the crowds during the closing ceremony. All photos by Shannon Cottrell and Hannah Verbeuren.
