Hi. I attended an anime convention last Saturday (Sept. 15). Best of Anime 2012, held at SMX Convention Center, function rooms 4 and 5. It's a really far place for me to go, and arrived there approximately 3 in the afternoon.

Cosplayers with number tags mean they will participate in the competition that will be held later in the afternoon.

Victorique (from Gosick anime) - her cosplay is quite detailed.



Madoka Kaname cosplay - got lucky that I saw her at the entrance.

.

The 12th (from Mirai Nikki) - unfortunately, the flash of my camera was turned on, and the resulting pic is dark. The cosplayer is a slender person, and his / her costume is well made.



Nine tailed fox? - don't know from which anime, but her cosplay is good.



Her name is Charlyn. The first pic is before she put on the wig. She also did a Sailormoon cosplay at Oh No Manga Cosplay Camp (an anime convention held last July 29).

.

Saw this guy at a previous convention as well.



Zoids cosplay - this a really large costume, and it won 3rd place at the tournament. When claiming the prize, he only brought the head with him on stage.

.

Dark Magician Girl



Black Rock Shooter and her friend.

.

ALODIA - acquiring this pic is what I consider one of my achievements in a convention. She's a really famous cosplayer here in my country, and this time I manage to get near enough to get a good pic! Funny, a camera was suddenly pressed to my shoulder from behind - turns out the woman behind me is asking to use her digicam to get Alodia's pic as well. I managed to get two pics of Alodia for the woman behind me, because my position is good. /job well done



Saw her at Toycon (an anime convention last year at Megatrade Hall). Cosplaying can be started at a young age.



She has 2 companions who wears the same outfit. I accidentally stepped on one of them to whom I immediately apologized (she's behind me, and I stepped back without looking if someone is behind).



No convention is complete without someone in a maid outfit.



Take home some souvenirs?

. . .

. .

This shop sells glowsticks, fortune cookies, and other nice stuffs. I bought two cookies.

. .

There's something for the Gundam fans too.

. . . .

Drawing contest.

. .

Japan Foundation - they have an area at the convention. Giving out some flyers, in case you want to learn Japanese. Even have a precure poster at one part of their booth.

. .

UP AME - they're inviting people to the anime convention that they will do on February next year.



Maid Cafe - yes, they serve real food.



Can you eat all of this Pocky?




Night time

Ok, there are still plenty of cosplayers in the evening.



Neko-mimi



One more Black Rock Shooter cosplayer



Robot - yes, he / she has real light bulbs.



Of course, there's some music to keep people entertained.
If anyone here is a fan of Uchuu Sentai Noiz, they're one of those who performed. I managed to record a part of the performance on video.

.


Almost time to go home..

Girls from Shuffle! anime.

. .

Her name is Novelle Anne. And a funny coincidence that I met her at BoA 2011. Remembered her because of the exact same pose she did last year.



Some more cosplayers inside the function room and in the hallways.

. .

One regret.

I saw someone dressed in a nice Tomomi Itano (from AKB0048) cosplay during the evening. She's sitting at a chair, and I thought it would be rude to disturb her for a picture since she's watching a performance on stage. I went to the stalls to haggle at the store selling Madoka figurine (succesfully able to reduce the price). When I came back to the chairs, Tomomi-san is gone! Not able to see her anymore. I should have just waited for her to stand instead of going somewhere else!

Have little money, so I was only able to buy two items. A white bear wallet and Madoka-san.

.

Went home at past 11 pm. The streets are dark, and I'm alone. Honestly, I was terrified at the thought that I might get mugged - which fortunately didn't happen. Maybe goddess Madoka watched over me?

Well, that's all to my report. I hope people didn't get bored in reading it.
