Me fifth element - supreme being. Me protect you

Me fifth element - supreme being. Me protect you. Leeloo
Haninge Fantasy Games took place recently. By chance I noticed a photographer taking photos of a very colorful model outside the cultural centre in Handen so in my usual style I interrupted the proceedings and asked if I could join the fun. The photographer was Ice of Tin and the model Grimalcin Cosplay. Real name Elvina Ejstes. Elvina comes from Hara in Jämtland but is today based in Stockholm. She's in to Science Fiction and today she was dressed as Leeloo from The Fifth Element, one of my favorite sci-fi movies of all time, starring Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovich as Leeloo, the perfect being. I told Elvina that I was planning to watch Ghost in the Shell that night, and she told me that she was at the premier of that movie in Copenhagen, dressed then of course as Major Motoko Kusanagi, the role that Scarlett Johansson plays in that flick. I took a few quick photos with Elvina posing up against the wall at the cultural centre and then thanked both of them for letting me interrupt their photo session. Always great when you find someone like this by chance, the only reason I turned this way was that I spotted a friend at the Grillmaster, and when I turned around there was Elvina being photographed.

She certainly looks quite striking! I've taken the opportunity to photograph a photographer and model before- using it for a future theme day.

I wonder what Luc Besson have now for us with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Have seen some comics about it and they were very appealing as is your photo here. ( I found Lucy better then a Host in a Shell but I hope you enjoy the movie).

She looks a bit like a traffic warning cone.
