ROCKIN ON WITH TOTAL AWESOME 
16th-Dec-2007 05:08 pm
Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Spoilt rotten by yet another EOY event. Despite having to run off halfway due to other familial commitments, I think an AWESOME time was had by all. I didn't expect ANY Yu-Gi-Oh! or Gurren Lagann, and I ended up with not only a KAIBA COSPLAYER, but A GURREN LAGANN COSPLAYER. ♥ Kaiba was very nice, and very Aniki-rather-than-Niisama. And told me where to find Cloud ("Through the last door, look for the sword" XDXDXD).

THIS WAS HOW IT WENT DOWN:
ariesdraco: Did you see the Kaiba cosplayer?
Me: 0__________________0 THERE IS A KAIBA COSPLAYER?! *____________*

But my favourite reaction came from Moogle when she saw him:
Dist: SETO,我死要您的 PHOTO. ... hey, that rhymed.
Us: *SIMULTANEOUS DEATH*

When I saw him I was *___* "A KAIBA! CAN WE HAVE HIM? :D :D :D"
ariesdraco: NO!!!
Me: *is suitably chastised*

There was SO MUCH to see at EOY that it seems nearly impossible to categorise, but I shall categorise the photos I took loosely under the following categories:



THE TOTAL AWESOME

THIS? This has got to be the sweetest Hani cosplayer I've ever seen. I was setting up to take a photograph, and he saw me, and then he turned and did this:

Heart melted. ALL OVER FLOOR. TOTALLY GONE!


I really liked this Rock Lee cosplayer. :D You can tell I was taking this photograph from this angle JUST for him (... do correct me if it is a her, but I did think it wa sa him). He had the most amazing :D smile EVER.


Neiji had the coolest contacts (and was very nice!)


This photo kind of does no justice to the cosplay, but IT WAS FABULOUS.

Both my fandom loves meeting in the same photo:



ariesdraco's Blue Eyes - BOTH of them.
This was before I got to the photo with a marker and scribbled "YGO AI FOREVER" along the dragon's outline.


AT THE NEXT COSPLAY EVENT THERE WILL BE MORE YGO COSPLAYERS SO HELP ME ATEM





the Final Fantasy Series


Moogle/Dist as Cloud and ariesdraco as Aeris... HEY. IS THAT NAME INTENTIONAL NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT?
Having Lex cosplay Aeris is a tiny little bit like having the Yami no Malik cosplay Ryou Bakura, but it really was a lovely costume... even if this version of Aeris would make kebab of Sephiroth rather than the other way around.




MOST. AWESOME. CLOUD SWORD. EVER. Dist made this out of foam and FINISHED IT WITH CLAY.

Really kickass FF9 cosplayers:

Saw this from the second floor, was so impressed that I decided I had to go down and get a closer look:






SO MUCH AWE AND LOVE FOR DOING THIS OKAY?





Koutetsu Sangokushi and then some of the most AMAZING costumes of the entire event


The KouSan cosplayers from CosFest are back, AND THEY'VE BROUGHT ZHAO YUN with them!
(character information from this post).


I love how the heights are ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.

chiiyo and kateriya, with some of the most fabulous costumes of the event. When I first saw Lili's costume, I was *_____* *counts all the different types of cloth used in it* I guessed ten, I was only off by one! *grin* And then I needed time to recover from the AWESOME before I could go and properly *___* over Mei.

SEE WHY:





I do not think, even at the height of my costume-making abilities, that I could make something like this.




I love the regal distance. *smiles*





You know, I said I'd be happy if I saw just ONE Gurren Lagann cosplayer, but I REALLY didn't expect someone to turn up COSPLAYING GURREN LAGANN. LITERALLY. I think it's Lagann rather than Gurren, STILL! AWESOME!



the mecha series - real Transformers! and Gurren Lagann!


GL gets to go first because it is TOTALLY MY LOVE.


Transfomers setting up! I took these because I cracked up so hard that LUFFY was helping them set up.


MORE EPIC CROSS-FANDOM WIN!


Sign says: HARRY POTTER IS BEHIND HIS INVISIBILITY CLOAK.
Solemnly swearing that he's up to no good, I bet!


DONE! ♥





the sports series!


This photograph was nothing short of amazing.


You should see the photograph of me next to Tashigi. I look. SO. TINY.


lyricalabyss, cosplaying a series that needs no naming. *grin* I love how she can be such a wonderful Regret/Legretta and THEN THIS :D :D :D





Rojak Institute

From Rojak Labs:


JUST IN CASE ANYBODY FORGETS!


Rojak stall! sarahcoldheart as RI staff, and some Lapis cosplayer. I HAD MORE PICTURES but did not want to be expelled from gameschool for posting them without permission.

CHECK OUT THE AWESOME BADGES! I am so glad I got mine early on, they sold out so fast!

Naturally Sarah has THE MOSTEST.




Rojak merchandise! Quite lovely, really!

Bought the game, will play it! :)))) WILL REPORT WHEN HAVE PLAYED IT. But I think I will end up writing Milo/Soto fic first. *cries*



Going to EOY for me is just like going to Tokyo for some people. You think that you've lost your money, but the truth is that you've spent it so fast you only THINK it's fallen through a hole in your pocket.





I love the doujin group that did the FF7 doujin. The price? $7 for FF7. *beams*

Hat is from chiiyo and sodiumion's store, Pretty Cloth!

All Rojak materials are from Rojak Labs.

... some random Lapis cosplayer? xD That's the cutest thing ever. Cuter than Hani-chan in the first picture, even!

sarahcoldheart, I hope you put some merchandise aside for me to buy next time I see you? LIKE... NEXT YEAR, SOBS? ;)

ALSO OMG SARAH REMINDED ME OF CHASE. *laughs!*

I love all of your pictures! I see you got a sodiumion designer hat! O.o AWESOME!

I wish I had time to leave a longer comment but I should've been out of the house ten minutes ago! I have a couple of days off now, so I'll be catching up soon? DID YOU OPEN THE PARCEL YET? OR TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW APARTMENT? YOU ARE KILLING ME WITH SUSPENCE.

Totally random Lapis cosplayer. *shakes head* How he/she got into the photograph, I have no idea. Should go right back into the game! *grin*

Heheheh. You're cute. ♥

XDXDXDXD Don't be silly, I'm sending you the merchandise. *smiles* You won't be needing to buy it as long as I'm around? I bought you a copy of the game! And you'll have postcards - you can even have the postcards I scribbled dialogue in if you want. :) And a kitty badge, because the Lapis and Hazel ones are mine and I won't have my OTP broken up. Unless we do the you-keep-one I-keep-one thing, but I have dibs on Lapis.

HAHAHAHA IT WAS THE LAB COAT, HUH? ;)

... I AM UPLOADING A SPECIAL CRYING!NIA ICON TO REPLY TO YOUR HOUSE POST WITH. Then I realised I should reply to your House post with House, except that the CRYING!Nia one fit MUCH better.

Thank you, sweets - you're too darn kind. ;) I wish my photographs were better: the lighting really could have been better (that, and my camera could ALSO have been better)... and I feel I didn't quite do justice to the photo subjects.

I HAVE OPENED THE PARCEL AND OMG SWEETIE ARE YOU TRYING TO BUY UP ALL OF THE TATTY TEDDY MERCHANDISE?! YOU NEARLY SENT ME A SHOP! XDXDXDXDXDXD BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH, SWEETIE, IT'S LOVELY! I ESPECIALLY ADORED THE CHEEGLE FRAME, I THINK I SHALL JUST KEEP IT THAT WAY?! ♥ THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOUUU ♥
16th-Dec-2007 05:30 pm (UTC)
... he/she?! xDD THAT IS SO VERY VERY WRONG. I am going to pretend you never said that, heh. *dies laughing!*

I've been wondering, though: IS LAPIS NAMED AFTER COOKIES OR AM I STUPID? Everytime I see the name I have to think of kueh lapis thingies. DO WANT.

AWWWWWW! ♥! That's too sweet! *melts!* I really don't know what to say now... :') Thank you...? OMG! I mean, THANK YOUUU! xDD *squishes!* ♥!!!

I'd be happy with a kitty badge! You can keep Lapis and Hazel together. They shouldn't be A THOUSAND MILES apart from each other. *grin!* WHAT KIND OF SCRIBBLED DIALOGUE IS THERE ON THE POSTCARDS? I am curious now! xD

LAB COATS ARE THE NEW BLACK. If you only knew what I am planning right now. MWUAHAHAHAHA. <33333

WHY DO YOU NEED A CRYING!NIA ICON FOR MY HAPPY POST? O.o

Naaw. I adore your pictures... Most of them turned out really well despite the OMG GIGANTIC WINDOWS WTF? xD I've been thinking about saving up for a nicer (... and pinker!) camera, too. I borrowed Astrid's camera for a while during the wedding party last night and the quality of the pictures was amazing. It was much too dark to be able to see anything with mine. Fail. *dies!*

I COULDN'T HELP IT. Build-A-Bear Workshop is in a horribly CRUEL location for a shopaholic like me: I have to pass all these wonderful little gift shops before I get to BABW. It's impossible to resist for long. (LIKE YOUR NEW FANDOMS! FSJKLQJSKLQ!)

You might have noticed the little teddy didn't come with its original packaging - I had to remove it because it wouldn't fit in the parcel anymore! Sorry! ^^;;;
16th-Dec-2007 10:34 pm (UTC)
WHY YES. LAPIS IS A KIND OF FOOD! Bwuahahah!! I will lj on it once I get time to do so on Tuesday...
18th-Dec-2007 02:14 pm (UTC) - HI YOU ARE SO CUTE :D
But sweetie! What ELSE could I have said? Lapis = boy! That cosplayer = girl! It's got to be s/he! It would be a disgrace to either of their true genders to decide on ONE gender! ;)

oh oh, kueh lapis is that lapis that you liked this one time you tried it? Remember This post? (omg ONE WHOLE YEAR AGO WTHHH)

You will have the kitty badge, then! ♥ OH AND XD. The scribbed dialogue is about the Rojak Institute doujinshi market. IT WAS FUN TO WRITE.

LAB COATS ARE THE NEW BLACK. If you only knew what I am planning right now
OBVIOUSLY SOME CAMERON-RELATED EVILNESS, SWEETHEART. ♥

I need a crying!Nia icon because YOU BREAK MY HEART. PLUS STUFF. Also, Nia is actually crying with joy in the scene from where that icon comes from. ;) Because the person she loved came to rescue her! IT IS A SUPER-SWEET SCENE. SERIOUSLY.

MY NEW FANDOMS ♥ YOU SEEM QUITE ALL RIGHT WITH RESISTING THAT THERE YGO. XDXDXDXD *laughs*

IT IS OKAY! ♥ I can't imagine how difficult it was for you to fit all the stuff into the EXISTING parcel! Thank you so much, sweets! ♥
16th-Dec-2007 02:51 pm (UTC)
Ooo, I actually recognized some of the characters, yay me! Only the Final Fantasy ones though. And the Yu-Gi-Oh dude because the kids I used to babysit loved that show (and the card game).
16th-Dec-2007 03:07 pm (UTC)
It's okay! *grin* There are so many series in the world, it would be really hard to know all of them! I myself had to ask what the series were a fair bit of the time. I know a lot about the particular series I'm into or those my friends are into, but outside those series I know ... not very much. ;) There are just too many series in the world to know them all well!

*beams!* I'm so happy you recognised the FF characters and spectacularly happy that you recognised the YGO guy! *beams* I grin at the provenance of your familiarity - does that mean you were forced to sit through a lot of YGO as well as the card game, to keep them entertained? Or you were very grateful to the card game for keeping them entertained?

... I suddenly feel really silly for thinking, "I hope that the kids were well-behaved, otherwise... they would be giving fans a bad name!" *laughs*

Ha. They tried to teach me the card game, but they kept changing the rules so that they would win and I couldn't argue because I had no clue how to play. I actually didn't mind watching YGO too much, but I never really paid that much attention to it.

Final Fantasy, on the other hand, I am addicted to, particularly FFX, and for awhile I was very into FF8, and ever since I was little my favorite one has been FF2, which I think they redid for PS1 and called it FF4 (not positive on that though). My oldest brother let someone borrow the Super Nintendo FF2 game and they never gave it back, so I was so incredibly angry at him. Then years later he gave me his PS1 and bought the playstation version of FF2, which was so much more awesome because they added little movies to it, but that game is still my favorite, despite it's old schoolness. And FF7 is awesome too, but I gave up towards the end. Of course I gave up towards the end of FF8 too, and FFX. I apparently have a short attention span! Hee. I have, however, beaten FF2 numerous times, but only because I've had the game since I was about 5. I never liked FF1 for the original nintendo though, but my brothers loved it. And I have FF9 which I never got around to playing, and FFX-2, which I also never got around to playing because I wanted to finish FFX first since FFX-2 is an actual sequal. I'm in love with Auron, by the way.

Ha, sorry, didn't mean to talk your ear off about FF! Especially since you asked me about YGO.
16th-Dec-2007 03:47 pm (UTC) - *beams!* It is all good!
... evil children! I would be all D: about that. It is a game full of unbelievable rules, though.

Don't worry about it, it is all good! *beams* I'm always happy to hear more about the FF series, especially series I'm not familiar with - which would mean ALL the FFs outside of FF7 and FF12, which I know like the back of my hand. My knowledge is usually very specific and series-focused, which means I know loads about FF7 and FF12, fandom ins and outs, all that, and I don't even know the characters in the other series. So learning more about it is always good! :)

The FF series I always hear the most about that I am unfamiliar with are the FF8 and FFX series. I laugh a lot at how often Square redoes the FF series - I swear that evil corporation has its thumb on the pulse of the fangirl and fanboy heart, for they know so well how to exploit it!

OLD SCHOOL is always great fun. That's how you know you are a TRUE FAN. When you love the old school!

I've actually never beaten any FF game! I have watched the sibling beat FF12 and cooperated with game advice via GAMEFAQS. *grin* And encouragement! :D

Nintendo brings me way back! :) The brothers and I used to play Mario all the time of the Nintendo Gameboy, back when everything had no colour and it was all black-and-white. The DS is such a major advance on those days!

I have a law-school classmate who is absolutely in love with FFX and used to play it in class when lectures got boring. XDXDXD And you love Auron! :)))

*grin* I always like hearing about other series and what other people like, so it's all good! ♥ I didn't know you were so into FF, and it's such a fun thing to know! :) I wonder if you're following the FF13 hype, or if you think it all went downhill after FFX - which a fair number of people do?
16th-Dec-2007 03:59 pm (UTC) - Re: *beams!* It is all good!
Well, I'm very behind when it comes to video games. I only get the systems when they are under $150, so I get them when they're old. And the games I only get when they are $19.99 or lower, so I get those when they are really old. I did play my brother's FF12 game for a few minutes on Thanksgiving, but I totally sucked at it. It was SO different from the other games that I was at such a loss on how to combat, but the graphics were so beautiful. My brother ended up taking the controller from me anyway because he got frustrated when I couldn't kill anybody. Hee. And last Christmas he showed me this other game that was really different but it had Vincent from FF7 as the main hero, and the gameplay for that one was more of an action game rather than an RPG, so it was too hard to learn that one too, and my brother took the controller from me with that one too. Ha. But he kept those games, wouldn't let me borrow them for an extended amount of time like he did with his PS1 games. But in all honesty, for FF, I really love the old school ones because they were very story focused rather than graphics focused. But I'm dazzled by the fancy graphics too. I also love Kingodm Hearts, but only because I get all fangirly when I see FF characters interacting with Goofy. Hee.
18th-Dec-2007 02:19 pm (UTC) - :)!
I usually only get... maybe one game a year. Because they cost so much, it usually takes me to like the game a lot - and be intensely obsessed with it - before I'm willing to pay that kind of money for it.

! I buy the systems when they are that price, too! I bought my PS2 just when the PS3 was coming up, so prices were pretty low right about then.

I KNOW! FF12 HURTS ME TOO, because it is so pretty and I cannot sit through the game! This kind of makes me wish we lived in the same country, because my brother played the game (relief! so I did not have to!), and he had all the cut scenes - which I show to people who don't have the time to play through the game.

OH OH OH, the Vincent game? That's Dirge of Cereberus, and it is SUPREMELY PRETTY too, but it is really very FPS rather than RPG. Your brother is slightly different from mine: mine would eventually take the controller, but only if I gave it over, because first he would have such a GREAT TIME laughing at my EPIC FAIL. ;)

XDXDXD I wish I had the same feelings about KHII! I love the game, but when I heard it in Japanese my brain shattered into a million pieces because hearing my beloved Disney characters from my childhood speaking in Japanese was ... I honestly felt from the bottom of my heart as if they were violating my childhood. It's not so bad in English, though! ♥
16th-Dec-2007 03:06 pm (UTC)
Ihearts u. Where's ur own photo?! XD *huggles*
16th-Dec-2007 03:18 pm (UTC)
Hee! ♥ I love your icon! It's lovely and so perfect! ♥

I HEARTS YOU TOO. :)))) YOU GUYS WERE SUCH A LOVELY TEAM. ♥ Your photograph up there is one of my favourites for all the event! ♥

Hee! There is one photograph of me, because I am shy. :)))
16th-Dec-2007 04:32 pm (UTC)
I vehemently agree that that Hani-senpai is t3h cutest ever!!! ♥

OMG KOUTETSU SANGOKUSHI!!! HOW TALL WERE THEY EXACTLY? This is severely motivating my motivation to cosplay Zhuge Jin OMG WHY did you have to bring such fabulous photos of KS cosplayers to my attention? T___T Do you happen to know if anybody else is interested in cosplaying KS at the next Cosfest?

AND OMG THE OURAN POSTCARDS! I knew that there was something I was forgetting yesterday morning. *le sobs*

Also, re: Gurren Lagann DLs - yes I will DL them ASAP!

And oh! Are those the Lucky Star ouendan girls? XDDD
18th-Dec-2007 02:25 pm (UTC) - HEE
HANI IS PERFECT, ISN'T HE? ♥ SO ADORABLE. If he didn't belong to someone else, I would give him a hug! But that would be wrong!

XDXDXDXDXDXDXD THOSE KOUTETSU COSPLAYERS ARE SUPER GOOD. The Sun Quan even recognised me from the last CosFest because I, um, fangirled her and Zhuge Liang so hard the last time we saw each other. XD

I do actually know that a_songfor_xx, ariesdraco and I are interested is cosplaying Koutetsu! So maybe we could work something out, if they haven't planned anything for then? :))) I want to do either Lu Xun or Ling Tong... probably because I can't pull off anyone else, and also because I am so in love with them.

SOB! *comforthugs!*

I HOPE YOU LIKE THE GL! ♥

You mean the three girls in matching outfits in the Transformers photo? They could be, I'm not sure! I don't watch Lucky Star... except for the Lucky Star parodies. ;)
20th-Dec-2007 12:06 pm (UTC) - PIERCE THE HEAVENS WITH YOUR DRILL!
YAY! Can you ask them? Pretty pretty please? I would love to cosplay KS next year!

And OMG I just watched the first episode of GL and my brain is like WTF???!!! and the baka Kamina and the kawaii Simon and the KAMINA/SIMON and all the crack! XDDD And the fanservice! XD And WTF with the bouncing head? XD SO MUCH CRACK!LOVE XD
21st-Dec-2007 01:18 am (UTC) - BELIEVE IN ME BECAUSE IIIIIIIIIII BELIEVE IN YOUUUUU
I WILL I WILL! Will let you know when plans firm up? 'cause cosplayers usually have loads of plans and committments, heh. I want to, and at least one other person definitely wants to, the only question is WHEN. XD

I AM SO HAPPY AT YOUR WTF-ING BRAIN AND THAT YOU WATCHED GL AND THAT YOU THINK SIMON IS CUTE AND THAT YOU SAW THE KAMINA/SIMON AND ALL THE CRACK OMG OMG IF YOU KEEP WATCHING THERE IS EVEN MORE CRACK FOR YOUR SPECIAL ENJOYMENT!!! ♥ THERE IS SO MUCH FANSERVICE FOR GUYS AND GIRLS AND FANS OF PHALLIC IMAGERY + CRACK + OH SO WRONG ALIKE!!!
