Cosfest XII was the first event i attended after a near 9 months hiatus from cosplay due to work. Alas, i'm still upset about missing the chance to work with the photographers from Beijing, as well as making full use of the many locations Beijing has to offer.
But work then, has been really busy. Never mind, it's not like i'm not gonna go back again!
So, this time i have a HK friend over to attend the event with me
I met her when i went to Shenzhen for ChinaJoy with Alan last year. It is really amazing to have met Maggie and her teammates when they went over as competitors. Nevertheless, she bunked with me for the days she was here in SG, and one day over at SJ's house because the chalet is really too small for us to sleep in
She wanted to feel the night life of SG, so i brought her to Clarke Quay since she didn't manage to come here the previous time. SJ and Kwanter was supposed to join us, but they came later because SJ needed to head home to get his keys first, of which he would then come down afterwards with Kwanter.
Maggie and I talked about lots of stuffs, mostly going from cosplay to relationships and nightlife. In a way or so, we kinda talked more from the previous few times we met because those were on a acquaintances level or sort. Chatting with her about all these stuffs made me felt that we "leveled up" and went to friends status. LOL!
In any case, we brought her to the new club DREAM
, much thanks to Cassia's friend who got us in with guestlists, though the ratio was like, 3girls to 1guy so the guys had to pay for entrance. Honestly, i felt that DREAM, is akin the same as Zirca and Rebel. I really don't see much differences except for the DJ stage and the new name.
Maybe it's just me. But Dream was super crowded that day.
We bought a bottle of Gin, shared, and just danced a little before heading off for noodle and then, home. We didn't drink a lot because we had cosfest to attend the next day. Thankfully there was nothing much to rush in terms of costume and wig or props. Whew.
We woke up at around 12pm and wore our wig and costume to the event via taxi. My Tsukumo costume had flowers pinned around the outer circumference of my dress, so it was kinda irritating that my flowers had to keep dropping like the heck.
Cosplayed as Tsukumo from Karneval. I was supposed to have my Nai, aka Namiko, but her costume arrived quite late so in the end it ended up like a solo plan instead. Nevertheless, camwhores with everyone!
I really felt that there is much to be improved on for my Tsukumo. The fringe wise, and the makeup wise. I'm not sure if i should have a photoshoot for this since we seems to be lacking a Yogi and Gareki, but then again, would probably put it on tentative first. Didn't managed to poke many people because i was with Maggie most of the time. Only managed to catch a few people that i know and recognize (did i mention my uber bad recogni-zation ability?!)
But i would also like to thank SJ for coming down from Yishun even though you are not a cosplayer.
I still remember Mein saying that its very rare and 难得 for a boyfriend to come even though he is not a cosplayer LOL! Thanks lah!
The chalet was a little too cozy in the end, and hence, Maggie and I decided that perhaps we should go to SJ house to stay overnight instead. I felt really bad to have intrude him and his family in the middle of the night, and his parents even prepared the mattresses and pillows for us, so guilt x 3. & SJ had to sleep on the hard rock sofa for the night because Tigger wouldn't stop whining unless SJ is outside at the living room with him.
I'm so sorry
SJ's mum was kind enough to bought lunch for us. Really felt guilty for making her going to such an extent >o< So, Maggie and I left for the chalet whilst i told SJ to come only when it is evening time since he would probably be bored too if he were to come with us then and then.
Cosplayed as Junko Enoshima from Dangan Ronpa 1 on day 2. One of my absoutely loved characters from the game, and because of her many different personalities that made her into someone interesting and perfect for a world of despair. I'm so excited for the english patch for DR2 to be out soon, but in the meantime, let me just enjoy the other games SJ has downloaded for me. Hee. Camwhores from day 2!
Loaned Maggie my SSX costume since she was carrying many costumes with her to sell. Gonna have a final photoshoot with this costume next month and officially tearing it up during the shoot. Till then, i hope it would turn out good since it has been a concept i wanted to do for quite some time. BUT THE COSTUME /CRIES
Hair done by Gmaine when we are chatting in the chalet about all the nonsensical stuffs
Thank you everyone for the memory
Cosfest 2013 has been an awesome event because of each and everyone of you
Insomnia for the night because i was actually kinda upset about certain stuffs that had happened. Regardless, its over now so everything is good now
My family brought Maggie to eat at a Chinese restaurant at Westmall, some sorta like her last meal before she leave for HK that afternoon.
Hope you had a lovely time over here with us in SG! & see you again soon!
