Mascot Parade 2010

was gonna wait until janice uploaded her share of the pics before I post this. but I guess its taking too long.

so here are the photos from the mascot parade last saturday!

I was a japanese schoolgirl, while janice wore her army uniform that was specially made for her.
when will I ever get my own costume from Movie Mania MM? ohwells. actually I dont' know what I would want...maybe a kimono? hahaha.

the parade started when me and janice weren't ready yet. but its ok, at least the mascots are soooo sooooo cute!

alot of different mascots were there; kungfu panda, cai shen ye!!, skunk, bears, tigers etc.

but we took photos with the library mascot!

I didn't know there was a library mascot. hoho. oh and I didn't noe the predator standing beside us was reno. there were almost a dozen predators that day lor!

spot the naruto character? the purple hair girl is from the akatsuki. (if u watch it u would know)

janice helped me take some self shots. I prefer this schoolgirl look to the ghostbusters or freddy kruger one. but I think out of all I still like the maid costumes best. hahh.

ohh and did I say there was a channelU camera going around that day. and unfortunately the guy asked us to pose for the camera for some takes........and to say the show title.....u know how they do it for those programs rite?

anw doesn't matter if u don't know. the thing is they caught us on tv for some new tv show coming up. I alr saw the commercial. HAHHA.

the newly opened scape mall

our friend howe liang as 孔明. lol.

ooh transformer gundam!

and if I;m not wrong, the girl on the right, is a superwoman!

and the cutest mascots of the day. the olympic mascots talking to the courtesy lion!

so darn cute can!

the trampolines at the carnival.

the ppl scattered off as it started to rain. boohoo.

candid shot.

actually it wasn't a very long process. everything happened so quickly and ended before I knew it. my fav costumes are still the tranformers. but since MM alr wore it before, they had to get new costumes to wear this year.

but thats what cosplay is about. u can't keep wearing the same thing.
must always try new characters, experience new things. explore the unexplored.

love wearing costumes. do inform me next time if there is another costume event! =)

cosfest IX lets make friends

almost couldnt make it to the cosfest this year since nobody seems to be able to accompany me.

but luckily eliz went with me! and to think that somebody like her whom is not interested in this sort of thing, is intrigued by all the cosplayers and she says she wanna go again next yr!

but this year I didn't bother to dress up. its like as if I'm dressing down by the years. haha.

we saw domo the moment we were going into the D'Marquee:

so damn cute can!

and as usual, the graffiti wall:

just taking a photo of some random cosplayers trying to take photos of each other.

and I saw these kids! so cute!!!!!

I wanna make my kids cosplay next time.
like seriously, for guy I would make him kakashi, for girl I would make her gothic lolita.

hah. similar to my costume I wore for mascot parade. (waiting for janice's photos until I can do a post on that)

eliz thinks the girl is cute so I help her take photo, lor.

arghh. I see this character again. last year also have. but I heard the movie sux.

the different booths:

pink lolita:

I think this girl looks eccentric, but cute lah.

iron man. HAH. small fry compared to Movie Mania's.

but u gonna applaud cosplayers for their effort put into making their costumes.

the guy with the fake muscles was damn, AA.
Attract Attention. he was abit eccentric.

I don't know whats this:

these characters look darn familiar, but I can't seem to rmb what they are:

oh. and. to my dismay, I didn't see any KAKASHI!

super sad can! last year saw the very shuai kakashi, but this year, there isn't many naruto cosplayers anymore! sobx. ohwells, but ya lah they should move on into new characters. but I still luv kakashi lor.

so for the day, probably my fav cosplayers of them all, WHICH MADE ME DAMN EXCITED and happy and reminisce.


final fantasy VIII!

saw this lonely SQUALL. where are your friends?

I wouldn't have the courage to cosplay alone.

and not long after I saw A BUNCH OF them from ff8! different squall here ok.

from left to right: irvine, squall, rinoa, selphie, zell.

omg wheres quistis and seifer? it would be nice if there is edea as well! hoho!

and as we walked outside again we saw the cute pair!

and the boy with golden hair is 8 yrs old lor!

and I don't know which character this is, but she sure is very 入戏

cos she kept eating and munching like a bad ass. and after walking away for a few min and back she was still there eating.

and this character very shuang. can just rest under the tree.

looks familiar but I don't know what this is.

and eliz thinks this girl is cute.

and she brought up 1 very good point. why alot of characters like to put a pile of their fringe in the middle. haha, I never noticed in mangas or animes that they have that. did u?

and anw, saw reno and howe liang from Movie Mania cosplaying.

reno was a ninja. while howe liang wore the same character he did for the mascot parade the day before! 孔明

if I'm not wrong she is from Movie Mania too.

ohh and this guy is scary!

his hair looks familiar....
coz its from a broom. zoom in and u will see.

and as usual, characters with "shells":

actually cosplaying is fun. u can wear nice nice costumes like this:

like woahhh.

one of the kawaii booths in the D'Marquee:

selling maid cookies and chocolates:

and the cute maid.

I like the colour. I only wore black, blue and pink maid costumes before.

booth selling weapons.

fake one lah of coz.

love to see a family of characters. they always look nice in photographs.

and, I thought this series was sooo outdated.

but they bring back fond memories! hahaa. I used to tune in to POKEMON every week!

but I waited for some time and they still haven pose so whatever lah I don't want take their picture anymore.

ohh and I saw my friend:

lee minho.


ohwells, the only regret for this year is that I saw no kakashis.
other than that, its ok lah.
