Dear god all you Danny Choo fans, that was obviously a joke! Of course Danny himself won’t be coming here! Nevertheless, it was an awesome cosplay idea. I’d personally be
laughing my arse off happy if someone decided to cosplay me as a joke.
Anyways, CF 2008 Day 2.
If last year’s major gripe was the tight corridors/traffic jams, this year’s CF’s major gripe is definitely the hall lighting. Sunway’s exhibition center is a HORROR for anyone trying to take good portrait shots. Totally gave up on trying to get action shots.
The major event, the solo cosplay competition this year got a pretty good turnout of 55 participants. 8 finalists were chosen to do the Dice of Shame. Pretty standard fare, this year actually, but the finalists were very good at doing whatever embarrassing task they got so it was pretty entertaining overall. In the end, Sheryl Nome cosplayed by Skye won the competition while Nemesis and Yuna each got an honorable mention. Expected but quite fair results.
The day also had a bunch of performances by cosplayers. Afternoon had a bunch of dances, but the one that stood out was the “Go my way!” dance team. Later in the evening, Mizuki, Skye
and Pato(sp?), Rika and deru(HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!) went up stage and sung songs to entertain the crowd, ranging from Antoinette Blue(?), Chouwa Oto (oh yes KOKIA’s song.), Iteza Gogo Kyuji, Diamond Crevasse and finally capping it with Lion. Kinda pity Skye since she sounded like her voice was about to give way already. Good entertainment nonetheless.
Speaking of entertaining, emcee Alfred wore a SKIRT today. A skirt. Like LOL. A bunch of girls were actually asking for it too, LOL. Today’s crowd was surely very un-PG13 since the word “lolicon” even got tossed around loudly.
Cosplayers wise, OH WOW THE LACK OF NARUTO AND BLEACH WAS REALLY NOTICEABLE. Okay i know those shows are popular, but seriously I am more than sick enough of seeing them. Instead, it seems the gothloli trend is really flying here now with a LOT of girls coming in gothloli-style garb with some really pretty specimens. Interesting cosplays spotted today included the first MSLN series cosplay here, Yagami Hayate by Alicia, a Katamari Damacy character, a gothloli ver. of Hatsune Miku, Spiderman’s Doc Ock and even one Tianzi-Xingke pair. Of course there’s a ton more not mentioned here, just spouting the ones on the top of my head now.
Posting the pics after I sleep. Seriously need that now. Not to mention all my pictures need some serious de-noiseing. Low light = High ISO = Grainy picture ORZ ORZ ORZ.
