GACC’08 [Day 1] Mentally Scarred

Last Saturday, took off to Melacca with fellow pals on my bangbus civic, heading to the next big anime Con, the GACC’08. No VTEC kick in YO!! as I has no VTEC ;__; This annually GACC Con is one of the biggest after the annually ComicFiesta.

Departed from my home as early as 7.30am, and the sky was dark and raining. The whole journey was tiring as the heavy downpour causes me to give 101% concentration on my drive ;__;

We arrived at the venue by 10am. And thankfully, its not raining anymore. I were surprised, the venue hall was kind of…. small.

This is what it looks like inside.

I went “Wait, WUT??!! Isn’t this supposed to be big?”. But everything proves me wrong later by noon. If you guys wondering whats with the LOLWut emoticon mask in the 1st pic, its me, doing it for the LuLz. However I didnt wore it the whole time as its kind of troublesome to lurk around with it. Now, its pics spam time.

The Assault Tactical Team

Aiko, cosplaying… RO?


Tactical guys own’d by MIB’s

Oh shi!! Hard Gay Daa~

“Ya minna-san, Hard Gay desu”. This Hard Gay dude is like the real deal. Seriously awesome. He did all the HG antics, from HG thrust, to pulling his cellphone from the ‘ahem’ 😀 I bet some of the visitors got mentally scarred and culture shocked by him LOL. say saY sAY SAY!!!
*Youtube or wiki Hard Gay for more info.

HG thrust HOOOOOOOO~ *although I did it wrong =__=”

Look kind of bored thar ladies?

LOLwut has joined

The doujin booths

Ten-ten girl, doing one piece

Misa and Menos Grande

Later in the day, they had a Group cosplay competition, where cosplayers groups up, and do some act/skit comedy for some LULz. I missed few early ones as I went outside for some fresh air.

Bollywood skit. Dot ask me ¯(º_o)/¯

One Piece

Pizza-butt yey~

Its a TRAP. But he’s doing it right. Kudos.


At the end of the day, they had the Caramelldansen. Since I has LOLwut mask, I did it for the lulz. But I did it wrong too, again ;__;

LOLwut, few seconds before set FAIL ;__;

Then this afro dude did the YATTA dance. *Youtobe YATTA for info

G.. R.. Double E.. N.. Leaves… Its so easy~
*Afro ‘pools closed’ dude /b/ powerlevel is strong

Its not complete without HG Livin la vida loca

At the end of Day 1, i really enjoyed myself. I didnt manage to attend GACC’07 due work issue. Glad I made it this time. And also this is the 1st time I joined the fun, with LOLwut mask 😀 In success rating scale, Day 1 alone was legendary and surpassed CF’07 in terms of cosplay and fun *yeah, CF still wins in doujin materials.

*Oh shi.. I just realized I has no coverage at all about the Game section.

Check out my flickr for more pics. It seems my camera fails on me again. Almost half of pictures taken came out blurred. Higher ISO didnt help, but worsen things up with more noise ;__; I really need to get a less shutterlag camera 😦

And oh, theFigureMall groups didnt join for figure display, as the local organizer do have their own figure group display.

Also check out my fellow comrades coverage:
