This event took place in Gurney Plaza, Penang last Sunday.
Was fortunate enough to finish my costume in time and paticipated in the solo category cosplay competition ^^
(Photos were taken by friends and other photographers so credits goes to respective owners.)
Me amongst the participants on that day ^^V
Cosplaying as Tender Shall from Dream of Doll~ Was a risky decision since I do not have porcelain pale skin nor the typical doll figure (Body shape, ahems*)
But since I really like the outfit and the character, I decided to give a try. XD
Had to admit the process of creating the garment was excruciatingly difficult, since it’s FULLY handsewn.. . (For inexperience me, plus the sewing machine at home spoilt, thus giving me a hard time!)
At the end of the day though, I had to admit this was the most satisfying costume I’ve done so far~ Will touch more on the cost and making details when I have time!
Various poses~ I guess I have more to practice on that ><
And the results from the competition?? ~~~ *jeng jeng nervousness …
1st Prize on Solo Category~!!! Was extremely thrilled when the emcee announced my number o><o
I thought the other cosplayers were all amazingly talented too, so I’m just really lucky to have the honour on the placing~
2nd Runner up goes to Sera as Miku of Vocaloid, and 1st Runner up Akie as Madame Red of Kuroshitsuji.
TOTAL OUT OF CHARACTER MOMENT – for the trios when after the exciting announcement of our solo wins,
we were also announced as the consolation winner for the group category as well. (We all know there’s only 5 groups, so it’s obvious we’re getting something out of that …)
But still it was surprising as ever! Since our group was last minutely formed (Through drawing lots as solos) and we had like less than 30mins to get ready a short performance for the judges and audiences. So we did a dance on Shoujo S by Scandal~
Literally yay-ed and hugged like no one’s business up there~ FYI, we weren’t close at all before the competition. Funny how as fellow contestants, there wasn’t exactly a competing barrier between us through the whole event.
Photo credits to Mr Allen who caught our epic wackyness just in time~
Meet the emcee from Japan, Airu-san~
Had to ditch his Mcflurry aside to join this pic for us, gomene ^^”
Top 3 winners and our loot~ Cash vouchers from Parkson and Japanese Food hampers!
Worn out look at the end of the day ^^” (The obvious orange tint at the eyeliner tails and pink blush faded >.<)
It’s the first time I worn lenses, and straight away for like 6 hours. Another risky act of the day~ But I like the changes of course XD
Very happy day indeed! And to Sharon of course, I’ve said this many times but THANKsss again, from all the way: Transport, last minute ‘prop’, fitting, photos, skit recording, McD beverage, and my critical stripe(s) accident savior …. >.< ! Without you, many of these happy possibilities might not happen X)
