Youth’08 [Day3] Trendsetting Fashion Extravaganza
After my rantings on Day2, it was the least likely for me to attend Day3. But somehow I made it there, just for the LULz and WTF elements. Well, who else would bring you coverage :p
I arrived there around 4pm. The lobby seems kind of empty. Not many cosplayers in sight. A disappointment for me. Since I already there, I’d stick around for the heck of it.
The guys I was yesterday also came today. Kudos to them for giving this cosplay event a go. Also Sailor Soldiers, Yamato and Kenpachi detected.
Their costume aint that awesome, but the enthusiasm to cosplay is what matters 🙂 I requested this Yamato guy to do his round-eyes, but he declined saying its difficult to do that LOL.
Somehow, for todays entrance into the hall, I need to register in a form. Either this was not needed on Day2 event, or I just barged in without even registering yesterday. Oh well, just filled em up as I wont lose anything besides getting some spam mails in my box.
Upon entering the hall, a saw a huge crowd at Animax booth. Somehow I forgot to snap a pic. Went there to check out the fuss, and guess what (not really surprised) its Hannah Tan with fan session. Hannah Tan is a new host or ambassador for Animax Asia. I queued up the line for an autograph poster and some pics with her 🙂
Yeah I know, Im not good looking and stuff. So I present you a hot chick cosplaying a new MMORPG game character. I dont MMORPG myself, so dont ask me bout the game =__=”
The stage where this cosplay/fashion show to be held wast completely setup at the time I was there. Maybe the had something there previously, I dont know.
While waiting for Trendsetting Fashion Extravaganza to start, I went to checkout the lower ground. It seems lively with lots of activities.
A Kia has been sacrificed for some art graffiti. Not bad. And at a corner, they’re having a GIG. The band playing music aint bad either. Really pull a large crowd there.
Saw this guys putting up their outfits. I believe this is some culture trend instead of a cosplay. At 1st I thought it was Edward Scissorhand LOL.
Cant stand with loud music and stuff, went back to upper level. Sigh, the Fashion show is yet to start. and at another corner at a chinese media booth, the cosplayers gather for a TV shoot. Damn lucky bunch as they can appear on TV.
The event got delayed by 1hour, and began at 6pm instead =__=” The host introduced himself and explain about the fashion show and the costume getup to the audience. Hannah then do some little Animax promoting and talk about anime stuffs. She’s just n artist cum Animax Asia ambassador, so cant expect much of her otaku powerlevel.
A dude played an electric violin for the opening. He got awesome skills there.
I dont know about other cosplay event around the world, but this is my 1st attended event watching cosplayers do CATWALK. LOL this is something. And mr DJ also playing some cool song to add the fun of this event.
And here we have all 10 cosplay finalist chosen by Hannah. (Dont ask me why a winged cupid is there =__=” ) The host later interviewed with each participants.
For this contest/cosplay party, the winner was chosen by spectators. The most popular character won by Sailor Pluto. Well, everyone here is a winner, being supportive and won some goodies each. Well, at the end of the day it was not really that bad after all. My only complaint is damn hefty parking fees, as I was charged rm7.50 for 3hrs park ;__;
So, next week there will be 2 events on parallel, the Macross event and MAGe. I’ll be going to MAGe as I will be having a figure exhibit with pals.
Picture taken using Pentax Optio S. Yeah, I know. I need a better camera.
