Cosplay can be said to be mostly for teenagers and young adults, since most characters in anime fit that age profile. But putting people who have yet to earn money for their own survival to go straight on into cosplay can be a recipe for nightmare not just unto themselves, but to the community as well. Here are some of the bad habits that cosplayers tend to do:

Cosplay events: Clashing dates and choices… choices….

Reading a certain post done by Julius from NKDS made me ponder about something as well.

“Why do people go to cosplay events?”

This situation arised from the fact that a new event, Mascot Parade, clashed with long-timer Cosfest in terms of event dates. 3rd of July, to be exact.

AFA09 Regional Cosplay Championship

cosplay_banner

Anime Festival Asia 2009 has started their call for entry since 4-5 days ago! All cosplayers from South-east Asia can represent their country to be the region’s top cosplayer!

Well, as a former cosplayer myself, I would be tempted to join up as well, since it’s the next best thing to World Cosplay Summit. The 1st prize is a trip to Japan, too!

For more details, please view figure.fm and AFA09’s page on rules and regulations.

Hiatus no more, out of cosplay.

Yes, so I’ve decided that cosplaying is an expensive hobby that wasn’t fulfilling for me, with the amount of time/effort/money put into it, and it all feels superficial to me already. The local cosplay scene isn’t what it used to be; there isn’t any close-knit kinship kind of feeling anymore.

Cosplaying just isn’t fun to me anymore. It felt more like a popularity contest, with major bitching added.

What about my old costumes?

Honestly, I have no clue. Probably sell it after doing some repairs on it, I suppose. But I doubt anyone has my height/size ratio, since I’m kind of skinny/underweight.

However, the friends I made during the course of time when I cosplay, they shaped a substantial part of my life.

No, no I’m not feeling melancholic, just finally decided on what to do with this hobby of mine called ‘cosplay’.

But to the rest of the cosplay scene, and those who still find it fun to cosplay, don’t let this entry get to you XD Cosplaying is all about having fun role-playing the characters you like in their respective costumes.

Cosfest 2008 Day 2: Persona 3 Updates

The plum and I cosplayed in the same group for the first time (along with my other friends from cosplay), and everything sorta ended quite well… in a sense. XD

Quick update just because I don’t really like writing long entries; so I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

Cosfest Day 1: This extremely short report…

…is made up of one video which sums up the lolwut of the area around the C.D.S booth (Aside from the impromptu SWR and Pangya JP, Hi, I am a Rake (Zentradi Fork) and In Soviet Russia, Bjorn Meets You session setups.)

Video credits to Aka. Video features possible brain-breaking content, brought to you by the genius of the one Mista Yoh (Mycstea now) and the unfathomable depths of the random plum.

And since 90% of the people I know couldnt recognize me (Even my classmate from the previous semester ;_;), here’s a picture for posterity

The rice crac-, um, Sen-cha- Right, Senti was unable to come yesterday because he was finishing up cosplay shopping. Let us shower him with appreciation by spamming sending him milfy cosplay pictures on IRC!

And for everyone else heading down later, we’re in the same team today so if you spot us do say hi :3
