III-rd Invasion of a Cosplaying Event
Last weekend, a medium-sized, two-day otaku event was held in Penang Times Square, attracting many comrades and clueless public for a visit since entry is free of charge! ^_^
Cosplay Invasion III was organised by collaborations of many like-minded groups and features guests such as illustrator/cosplayer Shirahane Nao-sensei aka DMYO-sensei, cosplayer Stayxxxx and cosplayer Onnies.
Wait… DMYO-sensei cosplays!? Isn’t DMYO-sensei the one behind those lovely illustrations of Danny Choo’s Suenaga Mirai?
Oh yes, I was quite surprised too when I saw her in Hatsune Miku cosplay (You can catch a glimpse at her just behind Stayxxxx’s Hatsune Mikuo here in this piccie, which I haven’t realised it was her at the time of the shot…) during my brief visit… =w=
Due to RL job on Day 1, it wasn’t before 1310 hours before I was able to reach the site, directly after my work place which is just some walk away close by.
Even as I stepped inside the hall, the throng of crowds already flooding the place made quite a spectacular sight.
Various retailers and doujinshi circles selling their stuff within the event.
Many interesting stuff on display everywhere…
Oh spotted a Takenaka Hanbei (Oda Nobuna no Yabou) dakimakura and a
Zeon Ooarai (Girls und Panzer) flag lying around! 0w0
Sorta flea market selling these chibi chick hair clip accessories… w
Oh, a random sleeping rori Tsukihi spotted!
Lots and lots of displays of figures and stuffs all over the place!
I like how them exhibitors incorporating parodies and comical posing onto their figures aside from the usual “lookin’ good” and cool poses… :3c
There are some dolls scattered throughout the scene as well, and a few being carried around by their masters/parents…
A pity I couldn’t bring Tama-chan along due to circumstance of my schedule.
As its title suggests, cosplay is the main attraction for the event.
I only got a handful of them though, not really spending much effort to hunt for more shots. XDc
The highlight of the event, for me at least, is the guest cosplayer Onnies’s Kongou from Kantai Collection (Kancolle). :3c
Rensouhou-kun decided to join the fun too.
Umm… Not approve by Kongou herself…
Sorry Rensouhou-kun… XDc
On that note, it seems the head of Tomodachi T-shirts (The Rensouhou-kun above) crossplays Kongou while Onnies is Kiryuuin Satsuki (Kill La Kill) on Day 2… XDc
I heard he actually did a manly Shimakaze on the day before too… orz Dang, why did I miss all those awesome moments…
Judging from those random uploads on the Facebook pages, I missed quite a number of shenanigan on Day 2 too (Shingeki no Kyoujin’s Colossal Titan-kun french-kissing Spider-Man’s Venom) since I couldn’t and a bit tired to attend it on the day 2…
Oh well glad the rest of the comrades thoroughly enjoying themselves. XDc
