Otaku Alert! Oh No! Manga Cosplay Camp 2012

Oh yeah, a week's passed since last Sunday that we went to SM North Edsa for the Oh No! Manga Cosplay Camp 2012, but it kinda feels like it's just yesterday. I was so excited for this event as this marked our cosplay debut, a new experience for both me and Sachie-chan. (^-^)

The event was a total blast!
ヽ(^。^)ノ 'Twas a really fun, albeit rainy (bordering on stormy) day. The gates opened at 9am but we arrived there around 1pm already. Lots of activities for the event! They had kendo demonstration, vocabattle, dance and band battle, performances by guest bands, art competition, Gundam caravan, and of course, cosplay school and individual cosplay competitions! Sachie-chan initially urged that we register for the contest, but I don't have the guts yet to sashay and strut on the catwalk. Err, I don't think I ever will... (~_~;) We enjoyed strolling around, taking photos, checking out merchandise from the different stalls. My only gripe is that the place is too small. Looks like they didn't anticipate the fact that a lot of people will attend. Another thing, I was unable to use my 'fangs' after we ate a late lunch -- I forgot my dental adhesive. Fuuuu... (>_<)>

For our first time attending a con in cosplay attire, I found that it can be a bit more tiring, particularly due to a lot of people asking to take our photos with them. But please don't get me wrong. In fact, we absolutely loved it!
∩( ・ω・)∩ 'Cause that means we are successful in what we aimed for, and besides, I really like meeting new people with the same interests as us. Members of Anime Sky even asked us to join their group! Kyaaaa! (⌒▽⌒)

We went home at around 7pm, exhausted but definitely happy. It was such a fun, fulfilling day that I'll never forget...

I wanna thank the guys for supporting me and Sachie-chan, and enjoying that day with us -- Ekai-neechan, Bryan-niichan, Tine (our 'manager', hahaa!), and Cyndi-chan (our 'second manager', hahahaa!). You guys are so awesome!

Okay, so here are some snapshots from the event...

Thanks to Sachie-chan for the advanced tickets! The queue at the booth was long, so it's a good thing that we have these and we were able to immediately go inside.

The girls! Err, okay I'm a guy here... Ekai, Sachie as Shiemi, me as Rin, Cyndi, Tine.

They say the place looks like a wonderland. So I dubbed it "Ao no Exorcist in Wonderland". Meheheh...

Characters from Katekyo Hitman Reborn. I haven't watched the anime but they are so adorable!

Cute Chii!

There was actually a sign somewhere "Keep off the grass". Bad Shiemi... (・_・;)

Miku, Shiemi, Mugi, and Taiga. Girl power!

Cute Haruhi!

Rin VS Mokujin. Bwaaahahahaaa!

With Cloud Strife

A lovely Loli girl

Luka Megurine and her chibi version. Aaaa~ So kawaii!

Heeey, another Rin! (^_-)-☆

A humongous 18-ft Gundam! It was a sight to behold.

Goodness! I was getting harassed! ( ´∀`)

That awkward moment when you're in crossplay and you gotta use the loo... Ladies' of course... Then, other girls start noticing you... (;一_一)

Another case of harassment?? Ahahahaa!

The bunch I call my super friends. And yeah, we're all crazy. (●^o^●)

Items I purchased from the event -- K-On Mio cellphone charm, a set of fangs for future use (it's so effin' hard looking for them when it's not Halloween season, I just made a pair). I also got posters of Cloud and Black Rock Shooter. And my favorite find, a Rin Okumura mini-figure!

Kudos to the Oh No! Manga peeps! See you next time! (≧∇≦)/
