Day 1 saw little of them cosplayers, but on Day 2 and 3 a throng of them came and occupied them halls setting up small bubbles of photog space all over the place. w

Quite a number of different variations of Yuzuriha Inori from Guilty Crown spotted around them halls.

This one is quite a poser, changing her stances every two or three shots from any photog. w 

AFA13_Cosplayers_71

A more daring Inori in her more daring gold fish outfit…

Speaking of daring, if you’re on site during the incident or have followed them social media news for the past week, you’ll no doubt heard of the fiasco I dubbed the Kill La Kill/Ryuuko Incident.

On Day 2 of AFA13, the wonderful time of a cosplayer in Matoi Ryuuko’s battle outfit was cut short and ruined by an obaa-san (Seemingly going for a church service or something in the same building at the same time as the AFA event) by the latter calling the police on the former, accusing the former of indecency by exposing too much shitapai.

No surprise the cosplayer broke down to tears and had to leave the venue, but she isn’t charged or anything as she does not break the law, according to sources. Fuggin GJ obaa-san, way to ruin someone else’s day when over-exposed cleavages, pantsu-blaring shortest skirts or even bikinis are rampant nowadays, why can’t you tolerate a little shitapai?!

AFA13_Cosplayers_72

Anyway, More Inori for you. w Also managed to meet once again with the cosplayer Stellar Rinya, a long time comrade of mine.

It seemed that she’d disappeared from the cosplay scene for a year now due to many reasons, only to reemerge recently, therefore she lacked a cosplay partner unlike past years when she’ll usually be in company of like-minded folks. XDc

AFA13_Cosplayers_73AFA13_Cosplayers_74

Elsewhere, I’ve been wearing a pair of Necomimi with customised Kitsunemimi for the time I’ve been in AFA. Curious onlookers often asked me where to get/custom one of them moving ears. There’s also a request from a comrade to post a pic of the Necomimi I’m wearing online for shows.

But since I’m the photographer, I prefer to had the pic taken on a model other than myself. Therefore, I asked Rinya-san to model this one out in a video we’ve recorded on Day 2.

Cutesy hilarity ensues. =w=

On the last day, Rinya-san came as Sakura-hime of Tsubasa Chronicles.

Then we met a Kinomoto Sakura of Cardcaptor Sakura, the original of the chara according to the artists CLAMP. XDc
