How cosplayers look with only items from their closets

I’m sure you’ve seen this Tag going around. It’s a challenge to Cosplayers (Non-cosplayers feel free to join us) to come up with a cosplay using only the things from their wardrobe . However the catch is, you have to cosplay as the first character your followers comment.

The above is my share and challenge request. There wasn’t a “Most popular” comment so I went with ….. the easiest to pull off cosplay =X . A friend is trying to get me to cosplay her too so…

CharaExpo 2015 ( Event photo & Coverage)

CharaExpo had it’s virgin run at the Singapore Expo this year .  Organised by the Japanese Collectible Card Games and Trading Cards giant; Bushiroad. CharaExpo boast an extremely impressive list guests which includes Japanese Creators, Singers, Voice Actors, Cosplayers and guess what? Pro Wrestler! Yes, you heard that right. Professional wrestling !

 

I had a lot of fun at the event yesterday going around all the different booths and hearing The Last Naruto Movie playing in the distance background. Yes, Naruto fans, there was a free screening of the Movie along with the movie “Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova” . I paid $13 to watch it in the theatre but here they were broadcasting it in the Movie Area for free and I really wanted to rewatch it again >.<! Alas lazy Kaika only arrived at Expo around 4pm and couldn’t find time for it.

 

Anyway, check out the photos I took!

Anime in Shanghai ( Wen Miao Lu, 文庙路)

Japanese Anime and Manga have long won the hearts of young adults everywhere. So whenever I travel to a new place, I'd make it a point to seek out the Animanga havens for the locals. It is always a nice way to see how different countries accept and propagate the same material.

When I was in Shanghai a while back, I ventured to Wen Miao Lu (文庙路). Wen Miao Lu , is touted as an Animanga street “文庙动漫街”and I decided to spend an afternoon there to experience a little bit of the Animanga culture in Shanghai.
 
The Street can be accessed with Shanghai Metro Line 8 or Line 10 ,just alight at Lao Xi Men ( 老西门) station. According to some online website, Bus services 11、955、18、23、24、43、218 and 537 will also bring you there. The street is a short 10 minutes walk from the train station. After exiting from the train station, remember to have your GPS or Baidu Map ready to navigate yourself.
