This was the most fun event I've ever had since I started cosplaying, not only was I part of an amazing team, but I also stayed at the same chalet with many incredible cosplayers and thanks to them, was introduced to other cosplayers whom I thought I would never get the chance to meet and simply idolise from afar.
Here's a fun shot of us, can you spot me?
The very next day, our pictures were up on this blog! Thanks so much for considering us the best team cosplay!
Our array of weapons from all 14 of us in the team (oh wait, minus Mini's as hers are boxing gloves). We could easily rob a bank if those were real weapons.
Remember my friend Daisy, who cosplayed as my Claude the first time as well as my male prop for my Just Be Friends shoot? He cosplayed as Don Flamingo from One Piece, it was so fun hugging his lovely furry pink coat which he even filled with stuffing to make it look even thicker.
The inner fangirl in me was screaming with delight when 2 of these amazing Trinity Blood cosplayers came to my chalet to drop their belongings off! I was so intoxicated by the detailing and materials that they used for their costumes and only after talking to them did I realise that they were the cosplayers that I had admired since I first started cosplaying! Can you imagine that all of their costumes were individually hand-sewn and pain-stakingly put together from fabric sourced from all over the world?!! Queen Esther's dress cost about $700++ from raw materials alone!!!
This cosplayer came from China to participate in the Asia Cosplay Summit, and can you believe that the cosplayer is actually a MAN? Yes, that's a dude! He and a team took part in the group category the next day but I haven't gotten pictures of his performance then yet. Esther and I were saying we might as well off ourselves considering a dude could look so much prettier then us
We were also really lucky to be able to snap take picture with the guest cosplayer from Japan, the fabulous Arikawa Reika (or just Reika). Isn't she just drool-worthy in her cosplay of Barnaby from the series Tiger & Bunny?
Mini also took a picture of Reika's accompanying Tiger cosplayer. Check out the muscles on his arms!! Definitely one of the best Tiger cosplayers I've seen
