Decided to take it easy the second day as the earlier lineup of events were an extension to that of yesterday's. I was going to just time it so that I would be just in time for the cosplay competition, but I'm glad I made it for the Sky Crawlers promo.
They were actually airing the trailer on screen but the screening area was already packed by the time I noticed, so there wasn't any point in trying to jostle our way in just to have a look, considering it can also be viewed online.
While most of the figurines on display hardly impressed, there were a couple that looked so great that it would be a crime to lump them together with their lesser brethren as these were truly works of art.
As noon approached, the gang decided to grab a quick bite so that we'd be able to get good seats later on for the competition. At least that was the plan before we were impeded by the urge to snap more cosplayer photos.
Apparently this was a good idea.
No one cares about you.
While I'm partial towards Macross Frontier for obvious reasons, some of the event's best offerings in terms of cosplay come from the series itself. Who knew a female could pull off Ozma so well?
While Michael's a little too effeminate for my tastes(I'd still hit it), Clan Clang here was just right, especially when you consider her prepubescent stature and appropriately proportioned bustline, though I'm likely to get into trouble if I start elaborating in detail.
This poignant moment with Clan Clang looking forlorn as she tugs Michael's shirt serves but a painful reminder that our space playboy is still dead. Bawwwwwwwww
SMS group shot, minus Luca, while Ozma is clearly compensating for something.
Despite the delay, the cosplay competition proceeded without a hitch, even if the entire affair emitted that "Been There, Seen That" feeling which left me a little underwhelmed, though I'm probably just butthurt over the lack of any Macross Frontier cosplayers. The mandatory performance by each team was somewhat amusing, though it got cheesy towards the end when it became a pseudo Disney Musical. And then there was the sisters team at the very end, which I rather not comment on.
Â Needs more symmetrical docking.
Homolust, how I missed thee!
His Majesty Emperor Lelouch.
What the stage looked like before May'n's performance. No actual photos of the performer because I'm a law abiding con-goer =)
The 1337 bunch who paid for the priciest tickets(save for one person). The actual concert was way better than I would like to admit, but because C.I was standing next to me at the time, I had to suppress my enthusiasm, unlike Setsuna who got caught in the excitement and decided to worship Sheryl instead. Ranka frowns upon your treachery!
