Unfortunately, since Kok-face-naden is busy being involved in the NUS booth there, and the CEO TJ Han is a lazy fuck who can’t be bothered to even take pictures ever since he had his 姫さま to worry about, it has to fall to me again to cover this event. Sigh….well, that’s the lot of a sub-writer of this blog, we have to do all the shit work while it’s the Boss who gets all the accolades for having the Funniest Blog Of The Year. Anyway, here we go, the second day of the Singapore Toy and Comics Convention.
Anyway, there were the usual gaggle of cosplayers hanging around outside the entrance to the convention hall, some of whom waiting for the Coscon to start, and the others….well, being cosplayers.
Otherwise, they have one of the better-crafted costumes I’ve seen there, which makes it more of a shame that they didn’t join the Group competition. You’ll see what I meant by that later.
Tieria Erde and Lockon Stratos from Gundam 00. Is it just me, or are there no guys around here who can pull the Meisters off? Well, considering the characters are a gay bunch to begin with, I guess that doesn’t matter…
The first thing you see when you enter Convention Hall 603.
The tokidoki booth. The designs are admittedly quite eclectic, and probably would appeal to some.
Darth Vader and his minions are still around. You know, before this I didn’t even know that the 501st Legion even existed. Now THAT’s dedication.
The three statues depicted above are the Chohin, Kanu and Ryubi Gundams, each depicting Zhang Fei, Guan Yu and Liu Bei respectively.
O great sons of China, how low hast thou fallen;
from great figures in Chinese legend, to parody fodder for thy craven Studio of Mecha Trainwrecks.
The Magma Heritage booth. The company specializes in Pullip dolls, which can be seen here. I’m only showing this because I know of at least one girl who might be interested in this.
And this is the abysmally small presence of NUS in the convention, sending only the comics section of the Forum Co-op Bookshop. Even Singapore Polytechnic has a much bigger presence within the convention. Bah, pathetic.
CosCon Cosplay Competition (Anime)
Apologies in advance for some of the shitty shots, there was only so much I could do with a shitty camera.
Then there was girl Cloud, who spouted off some obscure reference to a side-plot in the original FF7 PS game.
Then we have generic Lolita…
And generic samurai…
And a chump Roy Mustang from
Macross Full Metal Alchemist. I think this was the guy who first answered "Singapore" when the MC asked "where (which series) are you from?", sparking off a whole series of variations on the same gag.
More generic Lolita…
…I don’t even know who this guy is supposed to be. If he hadn’t said it was some sort of "mayonnaise bottle-cannon", I would have thought he was carrying around some fuckin’ huge milk bottle like some fuckin’ huge baby…
And to cap off the pathetic-ness of the entire affair, here’s the ONLY entry in the Group/Family category;
And the screams of all FYGs in Singapore brought about a great tremor in the hall.
That, however, was but the precursor to the greater tremor that resulted from the rage of the FYGs. Never again will that MC ever dare to get between Naruto and Sasuke, for fear of the wrath of They Who Wants Buttsecks.
Yup, it’s the same Genesis guy from before, Bleachtard posing as Kurosaki Ichigo, the same Hatsune Miku from before, and Generic Fighting Miko-san…
And finally, along with Miku and Fighting Miko-san, Master Narutard and finally Lenalee from D-Gray-Man.
Rätsätsää ja ribidabi dilla
Beritstan dillan dillan doo,
A baribbattaa baribariiba
Dibi dibidibi disten dillan doo
Ja barilla stillan deijadoo
A daba daba daba daba daba dybjabuu,
Baristal dillan stillan duubadäg
Dägädägä duu duu deijadoo
Aiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii can give you Gaaaaaatsubiiiiiiiiii………
Genesis was awesome as well. Like I said earlier, he was really into his role, and even the MC got freaked out, heh.
And the final results: 3rd Place Genesis, 2nd Place Lenalee, 1st Place Miku. Although Genesis looks like he’s about to kill someone…
Found Karen and Shirley again after the CosCon.
Lego Changi, and Lego Merlion.
See what’s on the top left corner? Yup, OMFG IT’S ODEX!!! GET THE ROTTEN EGGS!!!!
To cap things off, I leave you guys with….
The yellow hairband isn’t that obvious, but yes, that’s Seitenkan’s Suzumiya Haruki (Haruhiko)…
And that concludes the first-ever Singapore Toy and Comics Convention coverage. Ascaloth from RIUVA, signing out.
