On February 27, 2016 Pokemon celebrated 20 years of success, which is why Reinhardt Kenneth and I decided to do a super last minute shoot to honor Pokemon's 20th anniversary. 

At first, I have to admit that Kenneth's idea to do a Pokemon-inspired shoot made me a raise a brow. I mean...WHAT?! This is a little bit embarrassing but as a 90s kid, I didn't grow up playing games. NONE OF THEM. I never touched things like...video games/game boy/nintendo/whatever...which was why I raised a brow at Kenneth's idea. I was honestly so confused and didn't know what do to when he asked me to style, do hair and make-up and above all...model for this photoshoot. But we managed, in the end. It was all good.

So...in this shoot, we incorporated the ideas of Pokemon's many different cartoons and grouped them within three different types: grass, fire and water as you can see the pictures above. We also did an extra on a Valentine's Day special where I sat down in Pokemon cafe and "supposedly" hung out with them Pokemon cartoons. My favorite picture would be...the first one published on both of Kenneth's and my Instagram account, where the evolution of Eevees and I sort of walked down an "unofficial" runway while I was wearing Kanye West's Yeezy Boost 350. 

Anyways...that's about it. I had so much fun doing this shoot with Reinhardt Kenneth. I learnt a lot about Pokemon and stuffs I never really knew about before. And...we definitely had the opportunity to swap ideas and inspire each other. I can definitely say that we are one heck of a team. I superrr love working with him and I am excited for our upcoming projects together. Stay tuned! x
