Third con i attended this year and so far the best one that i have been too. This time the event took place at The Curve Mutiara Damansara, a hip and happening place for mainly youths. This time around, the organizers held the event outdoors which really helped photography as there was copious amounts of natural lighting to go around.
Also, I met fellow comrade e-jump there and had a really nice time hanging out with him. lanie-emon, did you go? didnt see you there.
The event attracted a large number of cosplayers this time around. Most likely because of the loot given out by SONY. Remember folks, larger financial backing = better event. Well, most of the time anyways. Money is still no substitute for RAW passion.
Didn’t go around the booths much this time around. Too many cosplayers to steal my attention.
Enough of talk now, time for pic-dump. Lulz (pics are arranged in chronological order BTW.)
(recreated from NGE when Rei broke through the AT field of an Angel to plant a N2 Mine. Not shown, a mini nuclear reaction the irradiated both men and turned them to ashes)
Darth Nihilus from KOTOR 2 pwning a Jedi with Force Lightning.
(Not shown, the exploded head of the Jedi. deemed too extreme for publishing)
Feel the Intensity!!
(looks like he got an upgrade again, note the rebreather?)
(not shown in image, me getting sliced in half by the lightsaber and cooked by Force Lightning.)
Note. My dad did quite a few of those shots. I guess you can tell them apart easily from my crappy ones. My old man im proud to say has some really cool skills.
And now, for a quick summary of the event.
1) Lots of cosplayers
2) Great venue
3) The Force is strong in this event
4) Larger crowd this time around
5) Captain Jack Sparrow!!!
6) Had the support of the Science Fiction community. Great folks they are.
1) Weather threatened to rain. I think it did some time after i left.
2) I still see Naruto and Bleach cosplayers ……… needs more variety.
3) Still feel its a bit over commercialized.
