This is my first Anime Evolution after so many years in Canada ^^; and also after many years of not attending conventions, I thank my friend from out of town for inviting me to take part this year.
I had a lot of fun stalking chasing cosplayers… like the adorable Mudkip below (Squeeeeeeeeee) and yes he(?) got a lot of hugs from everyone :P I’m sure it must be so hot inside the outfit tho! ^^;
By the way any of the cosplayers whom I featured here if you want a bigger version of your cosplay attempt please kindly let me know, you can e-mail me at puppy52 (at) gmail!
I’m sure it’s all worth it :P
This is my most favourite pose by it XD
One more, just because even the butt is full of WIN!
My personal 2nd favourite has to be the Mokona ^^; It’s not a prop, it actually walks, with the help from the cute assistants cosplaying as Maru and Moro from xxxholic on the side ^o^
3rd place on my favourite list would be DomoKun lol I couldn’t get over when I saw him/it walking quickly down the moving escalator and someone yelled, “BE CAREFUL DOMOKUN!!!” lol
I was intending to just drop off the artwork on the first day then head home to work, got out early just for that but then due to an error on our part, I got locked out of my place and wasted quite a bit of time going back and forth ^^;;;;
(image below taken when I was on my way home, without realising I was locked out :P)
Lady from Devil May Cry :D
Ugh I cannot remember the anime for this lady cosplayer lol (Anyone wanna help me out? ^^;) I kinda have it on back of my head but just can’t recall ^^;/
Thanks Euphoric and Saku for helping me out! — tibit from Saku: Lenalee from D.gray-man. She wears the 3rd version of the “Black Order’ uniform which is quite rare to find as I didn’t find any at Anime North 2009.
Good thing was fur kids at least got a bit to eat before we left the house so nothing at home was destroyed ^^; After some last minute emergency thinking I head off to borrow internet from friend’s shop — which was almost an hour+ public transit from where the con was…
Lookie Code Geass ladies <3
My feet by the time was killing me by the time so I stopped for lunch, a rest and to cool down – the weather was rather warm to be outside walking for long hours ^^; … and then I got a call later and was told that some of our artwork was dropping off so we — either me or my out of town friend had to go back secure it lol! Phew! lol
At the Art Gallery, I bumped into Lightningsabre who kindly helped me picked up all the pins and clips for securing the artwork I kept dropping over and over ^^;;;; and we also bumped into the famous gaijin Kaito cosplayer in Japan, Cleartranquil, and unfortunately the photo I had with him, I look terrible so that picture will never again see the light of day(LOL). We bumped into him again on the 2nd day and my husband took a couple pix of him (that to come in next entry I promise!)
My friend cosplayed as La Corda D oro‘s Kahoko Hino (I think lol) we had fun goofing around a bit :P I think some people also got some pictures of her trying to recycle her violin :P (I took those shots on her camera so I cannot post any at the moment – oops)
Earning Singapore dollars in Canada ^^;
Name that character time! ^^;
One of our favourite characters lol, Kame Sen’nin/Master Roshi from Dragon Ball ^^
Backlit Kakashi from Naruto ^^;
This convention has taught me a lot of things about taking pictures of cosplayers. ASK them for a picture, they are more likely to strike a cool pose for you, sometimes even get into a better lighting if you ask nicely. Otherwise you may en up with more back view or blurry photos (like some of mine ^^;) if you don’t ask ^^;/
Adorable Lolita <3!
Found the Vega whom I took a shot of the back view earlier ^^;
My friend managed to finally bump into the other cosplayer who was dressed up as a character from the same series ^o^ I took some pretty cool pix of them together ^O^!
All these pictures are taken with Lumix LX3, I took advantage of the slight distortion to create some illusion of height adjustments to the subjects ;P I am so pleased with the pictures I took of my friend’s cosplay, I’m gonna feature it in a seperate entry in near future! Promise :)
We bumped into a Harddo Gay cosplayer ^^;;;;; Of course we gotta stop him and take a buncha pix, unfortunately I was LOLing so only this one turned out half decent err is there even such a term for Harddo Gay? ^^ (I was being the obnoxious person who kept going YAHOOOOOO~~~~~ after him when he went on his way :P)
Okay I gotta head out soon, I will also post some photos which my husband took yesterday — it was his first time at a convention, I think he enjoyed it (taking lots of photos) enough to say, “Cosplay should be an everyday event!” LOL
I’ll sign off with a nice photo lol :P
Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoyed it so far, and like I said, MOAR TO COME!
