Lionel Powell began his career as a costumed character over 20 years ago, where he would dress up as characters like Pluto and Eeyore at amusement parks like Disney World and Universal Studios.
Now 57, Powell has planted his roots in the Venice Beach soil, where he performs street theatre in his original-designed costumes.
