    I went to the Fairy and Folk walk on the weekend with my friend and took some shots, and while the official theme of the walk was fae and folk it did not stop some people turning up dressed as Dragon Ball Z characters or Sailormoon heroines.

    I found myself a bit off my game as well, due to the theme of the walk, most of the walkers were little girls dressed as fairies and I always feel apprehensive taking photos of children, unlike the Zombie shuffle where majority of the parade walkers were fully grown adults dressed in their zombie costume and make up who relishes the idea of striking a pose for the camera , taking photos of children especially candid ones is something I don't feel too comfortable with.

    Here are some of my photos

    The turn out was much smaller than other events but it was still fun, plus the police wasn't so shocked by a small group of a hundred or so fairies walking around the city, as opposed to a thousand plus zombies moaning and groaning around the city searching for brains.

    The poh lease tend rather to shock easily. On the other hand they do share the participants appreciation of dressing up in fancy uniforms.
