[Escapade] Diamond is Unbreakable ~ PokeDay @ Disneyland

It’s very rare that I attend Disneybound themed events. My weekends are typically busy and I have a mid-tier annual pass. However, with my current annual pass reaching its expiration date and with some hesitation to renew, I decided to try something different. I’ve already been active in the September Disneybound challenge.

The Coord

I picked Dawn / Hikari from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl because she’s one of the first cosplays I made. Granted, it’s not perfect, but Diamond and Pearl is the first Pokemon game I ever played. It kept me busy and it was my favorite way to turn off my brain once I landed a full time job after college. I know I got into the Pokemon games later in my life; I just never had the time to dedicate to the game. I’ve seen the TV series and collected plushes here and there. I picked Dawn because she’s my favorite traveling companion of Ash. She’s a coordinator, not a trainer. A coordinator trains their Pokemon for pageantry and talent competitions. While Pokemon competitions existed in Gen 3, it was very much enhanced in Gen 4..


Dawn was a last minute choice. I thought about going as Piplup, but I have a softer, nostalgic spot for Dawn. I had a fluffy white hat, scarf, pink socks from Baby the Stars Shine bright, a cardigan from Baby the Stars Shine Bright, shoes from Bodyline, and a skirt from Rockin’ Bettie Las Vegas.



The Challenges

For PokeDay, the organizers had a set of challenges in guise of a scavenger hunt. I liked this format because it gave me a different way to experience the park. However, I really didn’t know anyone – I’m kinda new to Disneybound, but not new to the parks. I decided to just do what I can on my own just for fun. This blog post will show what I was able to acquire until the allotted time. I couldn’t really do the first 15 because I forgot to bring my phone charger and I tend to have the AR off because it drains battery. However, I did have my digital camera with me. I also wanted to keep things to one park. While I do have an annual pass, just wanted to keep things simple.




Additionally, I had Otacon help me out at the Scarlet Rhapsody OC base.

Completed most of the mission, Otacon. Did you want me to get Emma something?
