Cosfest XIV Singapore : Under The Stars

Well this took quite a while… Haha… Sorry… Took a while to edit photos but all is well.

Cosfest XIV Under The Stars, held on the 11th and 12th of July at Downtown East’s D Marquee, was actually quite tiring for me. With work and all, I find it hard to catch up with my passion, managing to squeeze only a few episodes per week. So going for events wasn’t really the first thing on my agenda. But since I took it upon myself to cover the event in my last post, I will see it through. For both days I went at around 2 as the previous day I had shoot very early in the morning around 4 and it lasted through the day, so I slept like a log when I got back, after I break fast of course. I went there with my friend for both days so kudos to him for accompanying me as I once again became awkward for every event. Haha… some things never change.

When we got there, I fully realized how incredibly stupid I was. I am amazed that I have never forgotten my name. I brought my camera but… without the lens… You guys can picture me smiling as I look over at the tent, screaming internally over my brilliantly stupid mistake. But hope was not lost, well not entirely. I brought two cameras along, so my Nikon cam was what I had to use.

And I gotta say, both days had lots of people attending. When I entered the tent, I was surprised. It was quite packed at the sides as there were small booths located at both sides of the tent, where they sell small trinkets, badges, drawings and much more. It’s like a small doujin market. I spend quite some time walking around, looking at various products being sold as well as those being put on display.

Unfortunately, some of the pictures I took were blur. Being hung up on the lens thing really brought my morale down. Or maybe it was the lack of a good rest? Either way, the first day of the event wasn't as enjoyable as I thought it would be. Haiz…

Day 2 on the other hand, was much better. I felt slightly more alive having slept more that usual. My friend (I don’t really need to introduce him anymore as you guys have seen him before right? You guys do read my post right? Guys?), armed with my canon camera and me, with the Nikon, we set off on our (my) journey on redeeming the shame that we (I) faced the day before. Oh, and my friend brought his brother along, which was probably his first event. (Welcome to the community brethren. Huehuehue~)

Seriously, what is the name of this Gundam..?
The second day was definitely more fun than the first for obvious reasons. I actually managed to stay behind to look and listen to the performances. (The first day had some problems with their speakers, so the sound wasn’t pleasing to the ears.) I confused various stuff altogether like calling Nuraihyon as Inuyasha, the song Baby Maniac with Sweet Devil and a few more which I don’t really want to speak of. (My pride, it hurts…)

Well, that was Cosfest XIV Under The Stars. There were new cosplays that were seen and new people that I’ve met but I’ll probably be back to the status quo by the next event that I’ll be going to. Oh, there was an announcement on the second day about a new Cosfest next year call Cosfest SEA. It sounds very vague where it could mean for it to be with South East Asian nations or near the sea, but I heard something about collaborating with some cruise company. For now, they have not released much information yet so it’s just me randomly guessing, a shot in the dark. Here’s their Facebook page if you guys want to be up to date about such events. Once again thanks to my friend, Noramir, for accompanying me as well as being the second photographer for the second day. And with that, till we meet again.

Mata ne~
