Cosplays of AFA13
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
Furry kigurumi cosplayer Shirookami says hi.

Go go Engrish Brit-tan!
Hop! Step! Jump! And I met a Hinamori Amu! :3c
Hatsune Miku, staple cosplay regulars in any otaku events.
Dangan Ronpa seems to become more popular since its airing last season, with a possible season 2 on the way.
One too many Enoshima Junko scattered all over the place, inside or outside of the exhibition halls! Saw other Dangan Ronpa charas too like Monokuma, Aoshima Aoi, Celestia Ludenberck, etc…
Moe moe Kuriyama Mirai from Kyoukai no Kanata almost bring out my meganekko fetish.
Bouncy, Yuusha loving Maou from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha!
Not too sure of this but it should be some sort of armour design from one of them Monster Hunter series.
Heroines of Date a Live! Itsuka “Efreet” Kotori, Yatogami “Princess” Tohka, Tokisaki “Nightmare” Kurumi and Yoshino “Hermit” with Yoshinon.
There are some photo booths complete with huge background within the halls with some cosplayers stationed there that let you test out your photog skills. XDc
Tons of chara cosplays from the Final Fantasy series!
That low polygon Vincent Valentine (Final Fantasy VII) is a nice touch!
Some Nasuverse cosplays from the Fate series, including Saber Bride (Fate/Extra CCC), Saber (Fate/Stay Night) and Gilgamesh (Fate/Zero).
I failed to recognise the charas they are cosplaying, any thoughts?
The members of Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad (S.E.E.S.) FeMC (Official movie name is Yuuki Makoto, and as a he instead of a she), Aigis and YAmagishi Fuuka from my favourite cult classic JRPG Persona 3.
Fellow Kancolle Teitoku, I’ve found and anchored your speedy Shimakaze! I wonder where have her Reisouhouchans gone to… Sunken? XDc
A fellow comrade Yamada-kun also reported the sighting of a trappy Kirishima around, which I failed to gaze upon.
Yuruyuri’s Yoshikawa Chinatsu, some Fairy Tail charas and other unknowns.
K from King of Fighters and Gautama Buddha x Jesus Christ of Saint Onii-san.

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
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?!
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
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
One of a better Ahri from League of Legends I’ve ever seen.
Love her glowing orb and her fluffy tails.
Being an event with the featured anime Shingeki no Kyoujin, there is of course a Colossal Titan running around the site.
Manly-muscled Titan Eren Yeager and Sasha Blouse with her rorier mini-me are encountered as well.
Colossal-kun also hangs out with his missus. w
The other featured anime, Love Love! School Idol Project, also enjoyed a mob of cosplayers.
Warning, a few of the are kinda trappy. XDc
Dekomori “Death” Sanae, Takanashi “Jaou Shingan” Rikka, Nibutani “Mori Summer” Shinka (Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!) and some random cosplays I failed to identify.
Seen rotsa featured anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica’s Kaname Madoka and Akemi Homura around too!
Coming up next is what you’ve been waiting for: them costume plays.
Rozen Maiden’s dolls Shinku, Suigintou, Kirakishou, Suiseiseki and Souseiseki.
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED’s Lacus Clyne, Kira Yamato, Yzak Joule and Dearka Elsman.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann’s Simon and Yoko Littner!
Lovely couple Cinque Izumi and Millhiore Firianno Biscotti from Dog Days! series.

Including gender bender versions for them homophobics. :P
Oh looks like Makishima “Saori Bajeena” Saori and Gokou “Kuroneko” Ruri from Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai! are trying to promote some sort of CD?
That’s the end of AFA13 report… But wait, there’s more!
