Brandon, Erin, Kat and Taylor are Ellipses Cosplay, a group that loves to dress up as characters from Pokémon,  the hugely successful video games that began in 1995. The posse of little creatures turned up at The Calgary Expo yesterday under the care of their ten-year-old Pokémon Trainer, Ash Ketchum.

Charizard is the orange dragon, representing Fire. The other two elements are water (the blue turtle called Blastoise) and earth (the green, grass character Venusaur).
