Cosfest 7/7/07 - A DAY TO REMEMBER 
8th-Jul-2007 10:32 am
Is That Lorelai's Key Or Are You Happy T
How much do I love that this actually happened:
Master Van: "HAREM SHOT!"

In which the Rokujinshou are Van's private harem.
Or public harem, as the case may be.

and another

luke goes :))))

I really love it when Luke goes :)))))) when everyone else's expression is just the opposite ♥

short event report
All in all, I HAD GREAT FUN. I'd heard news that an important government figure was coming, but I'd put them down to rumor. It turns out the rumor was entirely true: our MM was there, and his entourage swept past me as we were returning from a rehydration session. Hence the security gauntlet: X-ray machines and policemen everywhere, which, while inconvenient, actually made me :D because I was, "HEEEEY, COOL, SECURITY!!!" ♥ And also because I had no weapons that would set off the alarms. I hear that the Naruto group's weapons were confiscated at the security checks at one instance.

Event-wise: the event wasn't just cosplay: cosplay was one of the many events lined up on the bill. I didn't see most of them, but there was samba dancing by professionals, a performance by the adorable Montessori preschool kids, and several other dance performances. My brother told me that this was meant to be the SHOW THE CREATIVE SIDE OF THIS COUNTRY event. As the event was held in a public shopping centre, the audience were 80% (for the lack of a better word) ordinary people, which (to me) injected a healthy dose of normalcy. Not as many cosplayers as you will see next weekend, and those that were there tended to get a little lost in the hordes of gawkers and passerbys. Still! There was a huuuge Organization XIII team, a Naruto team, an Abyss team: I don't remember much else, apologies. There were Tsubasa and .hack and Sakura Taisen cosplayers (won the pairs competiton).

Still, as mentioned, there were several cross-players: there were guys dressed up as characters from Suzumiya Haruhi, and after one kind of broke my brain after I noticed that one, he was crossplaying, two, he was wearing a very short skirt, I stopped looking too hard.

There were lots of booths, too: not the anime/manga/game-themed booths that we will be having next week, but more prosaic ones: I think there were drinks companies, movie memorabilia booths - only zipped past them in true SYNC THE TEMPEST ON HIS WAY IN A HURRY style, but there was POPCORN and there was COTTON CANDY, which made me very very happy, so what I did when I first came through the X-ray machines was head STRAIGHT FOR THE COTTON CANDY. I discovered that cotton candy and black gloves DO NOT MIX, and I was very very HAPPY to run into risax and farfello and hackney_ed: I only wish I had been able to spend more time with all of you! Niisan and Kaasan cheerfully LAUGHED AT ME when I was accosted by photographers while still eating my cotton candy (HEY I LOVE MY COTTON CANDY OKAY), but I love them and therefore they can do no wrong. ♥ (Also, they keep me normal - well, as normal as I can be.) I know the thought of Sync cheerfully eating cotton candy is OOC to the max, but SORRY GUYS, you had a very OOC Sync to begin with, anyway, because I couldn't stop smiling. ♥ See, that's why Sync wears the mask: underneath it he is unnervingly GENKI and it is his SECRET WEAPON.

List of Event Posts/Photographs
SG Cafe Cosfest Day 1: good general image posts are here, here and here.
Side non-event link: FUNNY cosplay photos.
nemesis's here: very cute Organization XIII member, crack!Abyss shots
sarahcoldheart's here: really cool Star Wars stormtroopers + Vader shot!

asch being very cute.


D8 FOR THE CAMERA BEING VERY STUBBORN, but Asch TOTALLY grooved to the music here.
It would have been priceless had it been captured.

Asch playing with someone else's weapons. I THINK it was the Organization's, as they were in the vinicity, but I cannot be sure.

In which Van takes Luke to a supermarket, Asch promotes Coca Cola (oh c'mon, his clothes are perfect for it):

The Rokujinshou visit a Supermarket. CRACK ENSUES.

Luke is very, very :D about getting Alone Time with Sensei.

Asch and Dist inspect the vegetables and pronounce them fit for Oracle Knight consumption!


Also, Asch's costume would be perfect for a Coca-Cola spokesman. :D FLY THE COLOURS, and all that. ;)

The Rokujinshou and Doughnuts

A good Commandant keeps his troops well-fed. ♥ Van brought us doughnuts! ♥ Which tasted very good: probably all the more so because they came from you. ♥

Van remains unconvinced.

But then Luke wins them over:

MAYBE there's something in this doughnut thing, after all.

Asch made us onigiri! ♥ ♥ ♥ And our Asch is, according to canon, a pretty good cook! ♥ Who makes heart-shaped riceballs! ♥

I'd never had riceballs with pork floss before, and I loved the ones with bonito flakes, sesame seeds and nori flakes! ♥
But maybe food always tastes better when it's made with love. ♥

Being MASTER Badtouch entitles you to a very, very willing harem.

To Sensei, WITH LOVE:

Check out the original versions of these photographs have very interesting signs on the cloth.


Asch and Van share a moment:

Pls note Luke's expression on the EXTREME right ♥___♥

XDXDXD I have no idea what the both of you were doing, but it made for a great photograph.
It looks so very "Sensei, I know I was wrong. Please punish me."

It Ain't Easy Being Green:

You get accosted by people who want to play N'Sync's BYE BYE BYE video out with your outfit,
TIE YOU UP TO OTHER CHARACTERS (I am not joking, the girls in the photograph behind me up there tied me up to dorkodile AGAINST OUR WILLS)
and become victims of crossover photoshoots:


In honour of 7/7/07 being Earth Day, everyone in this photograph will wear Green.

but at least Sync will always have Sensei ♥

Photograph the Protagonist!

Luke's trademark sword-behind-the-shoulders pose!


organization XIII. better known as orgy 13.

ALSO, the VERY Modern Montessori Preschool. HELLO ORGANIZATION. ;)
Want to go to school with the KHII characters? COME TO MONTESSORI:

To be fair, it wasn't their idea: they were ushered into the photograph by the photographers, who must have thought Organization XIII + adorable preschool kids made a great photograph.
IT KINDA DOES but not in the sense they intended, I think. >D
Fascinatingly enough, this photograph was Picture 707 on my drive. ;)

Would've been perfect to get an Endrance and Haseo, but this Haseo and Kite were pretty darn good!
Photograph by our Dist. ;)

Kids from the Modern Montessori Playschool. They danced to the Pussycat Dolls' Sway, the sweet little things, and being so young, several of them were not quite there, and one of them was sulking. But they were all very very cute.
Their presence also led to this unintentionally hilarious photograph with the Organization XIII team here.


nemesis (who has very nice photographs here!), it was so much fun seeing you today! *griiin* I think you made all of us very, very happy. I do not think we could have found a nicer or more enthusiastic fellow Abyss fan to share our love for the game with! ♥

I belatedly realise I do not have a photograph with you!
omg true story #2

aefallen and nemesis: *see each other!*
nemesis: Abyss Cosplayer!
aefallen: SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ABYSS TOO! ♥ ♥ ♥ !!! Do you have a Livejournal? *_____*

nemesis: I'll write it down! *does so on my mobile!*
aefallen: OH MY GOD IT'S YOU?! ♥ ♥ ♥ *HUGS!!!*


a lot of asch and luke. A LOT.

ohmygod I think I stalked my own team




Aw, come on, Asch! Don't knock it til you've tried it!

[I don't know, guys, this might be my favourite picture, it makes me all warm and happy inside]

Asch: You looking at my replica? MY REPLICA. MINE.

Luke: :D See, I told you it'd work! ♥

http://pics.livejournal.com/aefallen/pic/004h5eyb <-- I SWEAR. I did not know I was standing in front of the 'Male' sign. *ded laughing*
8th-Jul-2007 03:38 am (UTC)
XDDDDDD!! I thought you might be amused! IS IT NOT Photography Of Fate? XDDDDDD Not that you needed the sign: I'm sure you don't need me to tell you this, but you made an amazingly convincing Van: my mom thought you were a guy, so CONGRATULATIONS on a job very well done! *beams!*
8th-Jul-2007 02:58 am (UTC)
LOL! That Van is AWESOME! I have never SEEN a Van before...OR a Legretta...or, hell, a SYNC! You made such an adorable Sync. All of you made such an amazing group!

Oh god, those last few pictures, before I noticed the chair, I thought Asch was break dancing...which coupled with the Marilyn Monroe image from yesterday just... o.o

YOU GOT A .HACK PICTURE! Azure Kite + Haseo = <3

And you shoulda tied Lin down and made HER cosplay! XD

Thank you so much for the photos! They are so wonderful~ <3
8th-Jul-2007 03:47 am (UTC)
*hugs you so tightly!* *beams!* Thank you so much for the kind words, sweetheart: it means a lot coming from you. *smiles* Wasn't our Van awesome?! *SPARKLES* I mean, I'm usually totally anti-badtouch, but she completely changed my mind. ♥ I've never seen a Van, Legretta or a Dist in this country before, so it's really great! ♥ I've seen one Sync on the English fandom side, and one on the Japanese fandom side - but that's all on the Internet. I'm sure there are more out there whose photographs I haven't seen. ;)

Thank you so much! *beams* I'm so glad you liked it! *griin* And thank you for saying I made an adorable Sync, although I was TOO HAPPY to be in character most of the time. Thanks be for that mask, I can hide the fact that I'm SMILING underneath it. ;)

XDDDDD I DO HAVE A MARILYN MONROE POSE photograph for Asch, really: I should put it up sometime! Along with a photograph of Sync reading cheegle doujinshi. And Van drinking milk. I DID IT FOR THE CRACK.

XDDDD ASCH REALLY WAS DANCING at one point in time - TO SAMBA MUSIC - or was that JAZZ MUSIC- no less! ;) So you're not that far off! XD But yeah, the CHAIR makes GREAT ACTION SHOTS possible. With the help of judicious cropping.

YES! ♥ Our Dist is a huge Haseo/Endrance fan, and I think she has successfully converted me! ♥ She helped me take this photograph ♥ The Kite cosplayer was really nice, too!

XDDDDD Lin is going to cosplay, but next week! *beams* I think she didn't want to do it today: it's just the day after she got here, so, heh, cosplay has always been a personal choice for me, so she can do as she likes ♥ I do have photographs of her with cat ears, though! oh man, I have even more photographs to put up: but they'll have to wait a little, I am all-edited-out at the moment. This post up here took two to three hours to make, from selecting and editing photographs to uploading them and writing+coding the entry. ;)

You're most welcome! *beams* I'm so glad you liked them, and I wish you'd been here! *hugs*
8th-Jul-2007 03:05 am (UTC)
awesome shots :D I love how Luke is like ":DDD!" in almost all of the pictures xD
8th-Jul-2007 03:48 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! *beams* I'm glad you liked! ;)

Me too! ;) Luke is so :D it makes ME happy just to look at the photographs. HAPPY!Luke is part of the reason I love the character so much, after all. ;) We reprise Abyss next week Sunday, so if you happen to be down, drop by if you like! ♥

#1: XDDD!! I know! ♥ I was We have a Van? and then when I saw her I was ♥___♥ even though I am totally and completely never a Van fan ever, I think she just might have changed my mind. I wish you'd been there, she was great! I think I've seen a Van cosplayer but once, and that was in photographs of a Japanese group in a magazine.

#2: *griiin* Luke's adorable, isn't (s)he? ♥ She has the most priceless expressions, ever, and she really had a BRILLIANT :D expression. ♥

#3: XDDD! It's one of those roller-chair type-things for workplaces. But omg their dedication in bringing this chair all the way here and getting it up and down the stage, REPEATEDLY. ♥

#4: Thank you so much! *beams* I'm so glad you liked this, and that you thought we pulled it off (I hope! xD). Thank you on behalf of all of us, too ♥ I'm glad these photographs amused and entertained!
8th-Jul-2007 03:11 am (UTC)
AHHH Awesome! xD I've wanted to see a Van cosplay! That's so... just... awesome!

EEEK! And the Luke, Asch and Sync are absolute adorable xD! ♥ Luke's smile is love for sure x3b Haha xD This lookes like it was so much fun ♥

May I ask where this took place? o.o
8th-Jul-2007 12:03 pm (UTC)
*beams* You're most welcome! I'm so happy you liked this! ;) And, oh, man, I have never wanted to see a Van cosplay, ever, but when I saw our Van, I was, pretty much, YOU ARE THE ONLY VAN I NEED TO SEE. ♥ It's an incredibly impressive costume, too. ;)

*beams!* Thank you so much! :))) Luke really does have a brilliant smile, and I think her smile makes every shot AMAZING. It was indeed an incredible amount of fun. ;)

;) It took place outside a shopping centre. ;)
8th-Jul-2007 03:23 am (UTC)

Too bad I had an interview, or I'd have gone! *is sad*

8th-Jul-2007 12:05 pm (UTC)
*beams* Thank you so much! ♥ It means a lot coming from you, because I know you have both standards and a critical eye. *smiles!*

I'm sad to have missed you too! *snug* But I hope the interview went well, and if you're free next week, we'll be reprising this next Sunday at Downtown East. Bit far down for you to travel, though, I think.
8th-Jul-2007 04:39 am (UTC)
Your costume is great, I like the details on the orange flap things <- can't find a better word for it. Sounds like a lot of fun!

And the person who's cosplaying Luke has such a cute grin 8D
8th-Jul-2007 12:08 pm (UTC)
*beams* Thank you so much! :) I'm incredibly happy you liked it! ;) And XD! I privately refer to those orange-detailed intricacies as Sync's Onmyouji scrolls. Abbreviated. ;)

It was an incredible amount of fun, actually! ;) Tiring, but fun! ;)

She does, doesn't she? ♥ I think the grin really makes Luke. I think of Luke as GENKI as he is in the icon I'm presently using. ;)
8th-Jul-2007 04:45 am (UTC)
Sorry, I don't have much time right now.
But there's something I have to say:


8th-Jul-2007 12:10 pm (UTC)
*grin* SAME HERE! HE IS MY HERO TOO. ;) That's why when I saw him, I was WAIT WAIT DON'T RUN AWAY! I want to take a photograph of you! XDDDDDD
8th-Jul-2007 06:04 am (UTC)
I believe that kneeling scene was because Asch was emo-ing over the shoulder armour. ._. Yea, I did that a lot.
8th-Jul-2007 12:14 pm (UTC)
Ah, I see now! But, *snug!* Emo not! *snug* I think a great Asch will be an Asch, shoulder armour or not, and that you were wonderful. ♥ I rarely see Asch-Luke pairs who are that comfortable with each other, so I really appreciated you and Kitt.
8th-Jul-2007 06:58 am (UTC) - !!! BADTOUCH ALERT
If I had known your Luke was so cute, you would've had two Vans!! ♥
8th-Jul-2007 12:15 pm (UTC) - bring on the BADTOUCH!
But girl! I wanna see you as Guy! ♥

XDDDD!! You would have made Luke TWICE AS HAPPY. Then he and Asch would not have had to share Van~! ♥
8th-Jul-2007 07:14 am (UTC)
I think I just died. That was amazing. It looked like so much fun!

I am so cosplaying TotA next year xD;
8th-Jul-2007 12:17 pm (UTC)
XDDDD!!! Thank you so much! ♥ Don't die, we shall miss you terribly! But I'm glad that you thought it looked fun; it was! ♥

! All the best on the Abyss cosplay next year! *beams* My costume just about KILLED me, but I think it was worth it! ;) I hope you have just as much fun when you cosplay! ;)
8th-Jul-2007 08:11 am (UTC)
kitt-san hasn't done a cosplay without baring her midriff yet so far I've seen XD; *SHOT*
*applauds Dist for bringing a chair* T_T omg.
Very very last picture: A little closer...and it'd be too wrong XDDDD

8th-Jul-2007 12:03 pm (UTC)
HI Seki !

I have !! xDD I made RO costumes and Rosiel from Angel Sanctuary ! I didn't bear my tummy in those, honest ! XD
8th-Jul-2007 08:28 am (UTC)
When I first saw that picture of your Synch in front of the board I thought he looked like he was wishing 'Gong Hei Fat Choi' XD...
8th-Jul-2007 12:22 pm (UTC)
HEH HEH HEH. HAPPY ABYSS NEW YEAR, BABE. ;) Think of my orange-scarlet-designed Sync-Onmyouji-scrolls as the ABYSS VERSION OF ANG PAOS. ♥ I WEAR 'EM ON MY CLOTHES SO I DON'T GET 'EM LOST. :) OR STOOOOLEN.
8th-Jul-2007 08:41 am (UTC)
Luke is just too cute with the smiling!!!
8th-Jul-2007 12:23 pm (UTC)
She is, isn't she? ♥ omg, it's like when she smiles, you can totally just fall in love with her and want to protect her from everything. That's the way I feel about Luke in Abyss canon, really. ;)
8th-Jul-2007 11:45 am (UTC)
^_^ I saw you on stage!!! I didn't manage to grab you at all during the event but I was cheering for you guys off-stage~~~ Had to be prompted by Justin that you were the one in the green wig and orange mask, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed you~~~ *huggles***
8th-Jul-2007 12:24 pm (UTC)
Hey, girl! I'm really sorry I missed you on that day: it would have been great to get a photo with you that day! I will not miss you next weekend!! *snuuug!* Thank you so much for cheering for us! *HUUUUGS* XDDDDDDD!! Looking forward to seeing you next week!! ♥
