Detective Pikachu Pop Up

This weekend saw the first Pokemon themed pop up hit London all in celebration of the new film Detective Pikachu. Being Pokemon fans (still playing Pokemon Go FYI & collecting the odd pack of cards here and there!) we headed up to check it out. 
There were queues to get inside, so we were given a wristband with a time slot to come back an hour later so we wandered around Covent Garden for a while, then headed back and luckily got in at the time we were allocated.  We headed straight for the coffee stand once inside and got the very popular latte topped with a Pokemon stencil of turmeric. 
There was a selfie booth inside, with Pikachu's lightning tail lighting up the mirrored walls - all set with Detective Pikachu ears to wear for the perfect photo! 
The pop up was set out across two stories, with the upstairs being dedicated to various photo booths and picture perfect backdrops & coffee, and downstairs was neon lights & Jigglypuff karaoke booths! WAH nails were there offering nail art - the queues were quite long though! 

Also throughout the day there were Pokemon themed activities scheduled which we didn't get tickets for including cupcake icing, yoga & miming workshops. The event was pretty good for a free pop up shop & perfect for any Pokemon fan!
