Manifest is (almost) over

And I've had enough fun for the day. Spent a fair bit too much too, and have not managed to hold to the resolution of "only portraits" (some of the shitajiki are waaaaay too nice!). I'm a bit disappointed - no D.Gray-man cosplayers (as far as I saw anyway), although we had a couple of excellent costumes, including Asham, who came as my absolute favourite manga character ever ^_________^  (which reminds me - I'll have to track down my Houshin Engi chapters...) and won the competition today (as another character). I'm not sure who the winners were yesterday, since an8id and I decided to skip the announcements ^^; (and there WERE more PoT cosplayers there yesterday!!). But well, time to head home...might take a peak at the products of the "iron chef" competition first, but will have to see. Report later...if I don't get sidetracked by Gung.

ah...it just isn't as special as it used to be - though it's still the big one that people from all around Australia seem to want to go to at least once! Some cosplayers (very few, mind! and if I'm not mistaken, some travel from other states to get here, just like you and k_chan did back in 2002...and yes, that's the right chara - Roushi, or Taijourou-kun ^^. She cosplayed Satoshi for the second day XD) were excellent - but it was lacking something. There doesn't seem to be a cohesive cosplay group (or two) in Melbourne. And some of the people in charge are too uptight, which detracts from the whole experience...

ganbatte with your costumes! Can't wait to see them ^^

...I think that year when K and me went to Manifest was sucha spur of the momment XD...too desperate and needed a con to go to...but I mean in ways I would rather go to a more established convention then *cough-ahem*..Wai-con...but I guess itcan't be helped...it's kinda expensive running around the whole of australia going to conventions although I would luv to go to animania one year in sydney hehe XD

Hehe I must check out sundays photos as well ^_^ If I get some time today
*sigh*..anyways back to costume making I'll send ya some shots when I done k...coz we're thinking of doing some private photoshoots before the convention XD

Two photos for now ^^. She said those wings weighed 15-20kg in the end ^^;;...

I guess you could say that Wai-con is quiet...but do you have presenters who don't pronounce Japanese names and titles correctly? How about your aim to get to the Singapore convention?

Wai~ private shoots! Where are you going to have them this time?
