And babes at the Anime Festival Asia 2008, Singapore on 23 Nov 2008 :D
Anyway I’ll split this separately into one cosplay and one goods post.
I went to the second day of afa08 on Sunday for the cosplay contest and arrived in the afternoon, avoiding crazy, long, morning registration queues that were expected at such events.
My friend who also attended the first day to snap up Bandai’s overseas event-only limited goods told me that the queues were significantly longer on the first day. People were queuing from as early as 8~9am although the doors only open at 10am.
So anyway, since this post is about cosplay, let’s go on to the rest!
Such events always have the staple of Naruto and Bleach cosplayers but I only took pics of what I really liked keke… There were a couple of rather good cosplayers that I missed out but these are the rest of the best that I spotted and snapped. Lovely Final Fantasy Advent Children Yazoo and Kadaj cosplayers. Awesome costumes and weapons.
I saw a Lelouch and a sweet lolita cosplayer who were handing out pamphlets for the cosplay event. Hmm… looking at the photo now, I just realised that Lulu’s sleeve was a bit too short? ^^” He didn’t wear a white long-sleeved shirt that Lulu wears under the uniform. The white cuffs usually show when his sleeves are up. Oops. However, it was a really hot day, so yeah… must have been the reason.
Snapped photos of Vocaloid, Gintama, Rozen Maiden and Gundam 00 cosplayers. I wanted to take a shot of the Gundam 00 cosplayers with the cute orange Haru one of them was carrying but I didn’t notice he was obscured in this pose x_x gaah… I think I still have a long way to go capturing better photos at such live events. Anyway, the Rozen Maiden cosplayer was really impressive. Very well-made costume! Gintama’s Okita *squeee* and Kagura (very cute) cosplayers were a superb match too! If only somebody cosplayed Gintama’s Elizabeth/Sadaharu. That’ll be perfect xD
And finally… the cutest Vocaloid Ren Kagamine EVER! xD Girls still make the cutest bishi cosplayers. xD And alternate Boy-Miku (no long ponytails) with an attitude ^^ These vocaloid cosplayers look great!
Coming soon in the next post about Goods/Merchandise at the event ^^
