中新杯COSPLAY 2012 (Tianjin, China)
I’m sorry it took me forever to get this up , but it’s finally here =)
Last October 2012, I was invited to attend a Cosplay Competition event held in the newly launched Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city 中新生态城. Travelling along with me was the super kawaii Aya_Tenshi! She was the Singapore WCS representative for 2012 and also the Runner Up to the grand finals of World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya Japan 2012.
As the name implies, It was a wonderful place that was built by the government to cultivate and promote the growth of various industries. One part of the city focus on Animation and henceforth, it was also where the competition was held. The event was organised by Ku6, a local Internet Video Company.
I know I know, you must be thinking “Hey Kaika, isn’t that like an entire YEAR ago?! why are you blogging now???” . I’m sorry I have just been really busy with life and all so much more stuffs. But it’s finally here no ?
One of the promo posters. The event invited a lot of cosplayers from all around the world.
I brought 2 costumes, Megurine Luka (Rondo of the Sun & Moon) and Homura Akemi (PMMM). Unfortunately for me, I accidentally left the blade of my Rondo sword in the plane T_T We asked the Airport staff to help us look for it but they say it’s not in the plane ;_;
As the event was actually more like a TV stage show, there weren’t actually any event booths unlike usual conventions and our assigned activities were basically a cosplay walk on the first day and a performance segment on the second day. It was a rushed trip and we were given pretty late notice henceforth both Aya and myself could only perform singing. I’m embarrassed to say I pretty much screwed both of mine up oTL
Here I am, singing the ending song of PMMM “Magia” bye Kalafina. I was so nervous I screwed up my lyrics big time ;<
It was a really short and rushed trip so I didn’t have the chance to tour Tianjin so I’ll just be sharing with you guys the awesome cosplays I saw there. Have fun!
I remember being SO impressed by all the costumes I saw there! There was a lot of armoured costume and there was a whole group of armoured cosplay group that consists of mainly females.
