A Halloween work assignment on Halloween Eve'09.
I rmb I refused to wear the dirty wig that MM provided. lol. Luckily I have enough fringe.
Haha I like this photo:
Christmas event in 2010.
Cosplay parade in 2011. We were featured on STOMP! I was sad cos MM forgot to bring my boots. And I had to wear my sandals!! Luckily batgirl had a leg cover. At least most of the leg was covered by the leg cover, if not I would really be in pants and an ugly pair of sandals.
Most recently, Wonderwoman at Singapore Airshow 2012.
Not that I really like Wonderwoman.
Star Wars Imperial Officer would have been better but at least the colours of this costume stands out lah.
But, I think that the crux of cosplaying lies in how much u enjoyed wearing it, or portraying the characters' attitudes correctly. As long as u enjoyed the process and had fun, it doesn't matter if u were THAT suitable for the role.
Well when I was first introduced to all these cosplaying, I admit that I felt that they are weird ppl. But now, its not that they are weird or not, its that they are brave enough to stand under the spotlight and be seen by all, scrutinized or not. Seriously! Cosplayers are not weird ppl, I wish Singaporeans would just stop being frogs in the well and embrace it! Take a look at what other countries are doing and u will realize how myopic Singaporeans are!
Its pretty fun to wear such costumes u can never do in your everyday life. At least when I'm old, I can tell my grandchildren:
"Hey! I wore Wonderwoman, Catwoman costumes before. Oh, did I mention that I even went up the stage to contest in a cosplay competition wearing Ghostbusters costume? And of cos, rmb the much coveted maid costumes which makes otakus go weak in the knees? I've worn them all! hee."
I know that there will still be ppl who are sceptical about my blog post. I don't care about these ppl.
nuff said. hah.
Like or share this post if u liked and agreed with what I said.
