ComicFiesta’08 Day2, EPIC End for 2008

Unlimited Slowpoke Works. Yeah, sorry guys that it took me more than a week just to post Day2 coverage. I’m pretty much sure that most of you already read up such coverage on other blogs.

So I’ll just cut the tl:dr wall of text short and go straight to time chronology of day 2 happenings.

Well, pretty much nothing additional happens in the morning to noon besides cosplays and doujin booths.

If there was activities, guess i didnt noticed it due to stalking cosplayers for pics.

I did have a hard time identifying cosplays characters origin. Although I went ‘take picture 1st, think later’.

Day 2 cosplay was impressive, keeping the quality momentum from day 1. I noticed few day 1 cosplayers appear on day 2 with different cosplay set.

By 3pm i believe the group cosplay kickedstarted. But since i dont like crowded area, i continued with my cosplay stalking.

I totally missed out the whole group cosplay skit and solo contestant. The pic above are the 8 finalist for solo competition. From Left Nemesis, Riku, Dark Star, Faust, Sheryl, Yuna, Tano and KrauserII.

Unlike previous ComicFiesta, this year they ditched the Cosplay chess and tried something new, where as you can see the board on far right (with pink stickies) will determine the fate of contestants.

Contestant got called up, do some short intro and roll the gigantic dice. If they get black star, they can do whatever they like, and pink slip will have them do task which covers telling joke, sing and i forgot others =__=”

Mr Faust over here is demonstrating on how to swim the right way. It was a fun session although I did overheard people missed the chess more.

While waiting for the result announcement, I continued my task..

Cobra made me remember my childhood days w/ GI Joe ;_;

Awesome Sengoku Basara group cosplay.
