AFA 2013 DAY 3.
Let’s start off with a lot of love.
Like… a LOT.
Rin is actually the nice one, while Yukio is the cool and heartless one.
“I will open my eyes for you,” so says ZeroCross, so finally we can see the contacts. Sorry, I mean, the eye hiding behind the contacts.
I guess no one thought I would take this picture. But it is sooo funny!! So Rin and Yukio! Rin may turn femme, but he still moves like a guy, and so this is a very cute picture. Also shows of Rin’s love for Yukio.
And Yukio just stands around looking cool. Or trying to.
I really like aki’s femme Rin. It’s so cute and fun and nice!
Actually, today we were going to watch the I <3 Anisong concert, and it was my first time going to a concert with a real friend. And we had a lot of fun. HYPED. I totally let myself loose (normally, I would still restraint like 40% of myself even if I worked hard to support the artists I love). I have never seen such an hyper and active aki before.
And they found friends.
Yukio’s chick is cute.
Rin – Like a flower.
Rin pulling Yukio into the chickerdee biz/ \(^V^)/
Yukio is human, so he needs food. Rin doesn’t need.
This was the original hair accessory used by rin, btw.
Ya…. I LOVE THIS PICTURE. And yes…. I am the one who made them pose it… -..- ZeroCross is starting to learn to run away from me, how I erm…. make him pose for the two days. Lols. Come on, be a sport.

| the END |
Seeing a couple of people cosing Free! Sailor version. Meaning, there are more to come. Well, it’s cute.
Hakuoki! Well loved! Sir, you are so BISHI.
I unintentionally interrupted Hana and Baozi’s session with their fans. They were anxiously presenting gifts to Prince Alibaba and King Sinbad. My sincerest apologies. I will still do it again.
Yuuki-chan and her friend.
Never thought I would actually be able to see Jesuke and take her photo. I didn’t even realise it is Jesuke when I took the photo. Even though its so obvious.
Little red riding hood. Childhood man.
These guys are so cool, I love them so much.
Oh ya, and Skye’s team is here as well. Talking about seeing all those people you follow on dA for years. You know, we were like saying in our own team that we wanted to find a Pixis…. but it would be so hard since not many people would want to cosplay him…. but THEY HAVE A PIXIS!
AKB48. These girls look pretty.
aki and her friend.
ANOTHER GUNDAM SEED COSPLAY!! I really rejoiced. I know it is rare to see Gundam seed/destiny nowadays. Even that time so many years ago when we cosplayed, there were very little, but there will still be people who love Gundam. Awesome. And this Kira is soooo Kira. I found my perfect score Kira, guys. I DO want to apologise to Lacus…. she was resting her feet and really didn’t want to get into her heels again, but I really wanted to get that photo and refused to budge.
Alibaba! Coser stopped for me to take photo, even though he was done with the photographers and can finally move on again. Thank you (I was afraid I was not able to take a alibaba photo this event) and I’m sorry.
Project K. Love the animation, man.
Prince Ren Kouha!
Soo…. we had a hard time. /lols/ yes. We had a hard time. We planned, like many others, to cosplay SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN at AFA 2013. But we only ended up there for a couple of hours, and had our gears on for a even shorter period of time. It was a short period of time, but we enjoyed our time.
Below are some photos that was taken on my digital compact camera, but one of our member’s brother.
I would like to start lightly. I knew that there was a blood donation drive near us and that we where very near it… but it didn’t occur to me until I saw this photo on the screen that a joke starts to develop in my head.
Petra and Sasha.
This titan head means that we are at the Shingeki no Kyojin experience area.
Attacking the titan….
At the Shingeki no Kyojin experience area. Eren (individual cosplay) joined us.
Squat leader Hanji at the top of the wall, which surprised everyone.
Then a Titan joined us… and everyone was yelling at Eren to pose as well, so he did, and the Titan gave a few cute poses as well.
Everyone decided to take a final pose – We have yet done this pose.
Rico’s and Christa’s gear formed the two towers. The fans are working. Lols.
We saw a mini sasha & her mother (who cosplays as Mikasa)!!!! And so we HAD to take a photo with them.
Now, for photos we found in the net.
Taken at the internet explorer booth
… I am losing confidence with our guys.
AFTERWORDS: I am really grateful to our team. We were not the best cosplayers around…. many of us were first-timers in prop makings… yet, we tried our best. We had people falling ill before the event, and gears that just don’t work as well as they should… many of us were panicking, and we spent a lot of time trying to get our gears to work…. the sorrows of cosplayers! It was never that easy. I even had to have PETRA help me do my make up. Things that I had packed into my bag were missing….and later found too late. =..= And of course, there is RICO who just had to give me my cosplayer rite of passage. I don’t think I can call myself a cosplayer, but this is an experience I will remember always. Really thank you, for the team. We worked hard together. Also to the people who joined us halfway, for fun or just because we are all fans of Shingeki no Kyojin.
And also thanks to the brother who helped me took our photos…. to the people who took our photos and let us see it. To our new friends, and old ones. We will worked harder, I know. Because we are a team. I know that everyone thinks that their team is special, so the same goes for us. Our team is special. We do not have any of the main characters. And….. as a memory sake, it was on the next day that we realised that the director of Shingeki was staring at us in the experience area. How special is that? I think I will carry that specialness with me till I lose all memories. I hope.
I also know RICO was suspicious of me being Jack-in-the-Box. And I did, but I pulled it off, and prettily, and everyone ended up with a good memory. I think. I really want to thank the guys for putting up with me so…. I know people don’t like surprises. I don’t like surprises. But I keep springing them up happily. And I will keep doing it. I will also ride JEAN more.

I was fortunate enough to pass by the mini stage when Angela was on stage. They chatted for a while and performed Shangri-la. It was acoustic version with Katsuo on guitar and Atsuko vocals. But it was soooo good. I Had to share.
As always it’s the videos first before the photos.
Just sharing something here…
I wish I am that talented… it takes a lot to time and attention to details to make each image comes to live. That sad look in the bird’s eyes when he is locked in the cage, the dreamy carousel and happening circus… the peppered stars. All these take a long time and planning and it is not as simple as a few minutes.
UPDATE: THEN I SAW THIS: more parent-kid fun
I created a new chrome theme!! It’s my first and I am quite perk about it~ I am using it now!
A little Peek here! I guess that is the entire theme itself then. Google Chrome theme is a simple affair, but it’s really a very nice and personal thing to be able to add a little personal touch to your browser. Even if I do not see the image often, I will be able to browse the net happily, knowing that this theme is created by me, out of my own hand, with my personal preference to the images and colours. I am not sure if I am going to create another theme, though that probably means I am just going to switch out the background image + the tab bar colour.
Soo… while I am at it, I am going to talk about Shinsekai Yori (From the new world). I LOVE IT. It’s def on my favourites list! I used to be a fan of Shun, then I am a fan of Satoru, but frankly speaking, I love all the kids. But the ending got me. I keep wanting to re-watch it again and again. Saki’s capability to forgive and love all is really remarkable as well. But the thing I love most is the character development and especially the plot. It makes you realise the importance of Shun and his death. He is necessary as the ultimate trump card Group One has against the rebellion, and his death is also necessary or whatever happened would not happen.
When I think of the Monster Rats though, I feel sad. Squealer is right – they are humans. Yet, they are oppressed. Even Kiroumaru was willing to sacrifice his men to search for a way to turn the tables over. They are bascially Humans who are forced to turn into monsters in order to make sure that those Humans with Cantus can live happily without worry. But they were treated like slaves. At the same time, what I found upsetting (as a fellow Human) is that, be it Monster Rat or the “Gods”, there may be a mention or two of “we should be equals”, but none of them thought that way at all. It’s either destroy humans or replace humans with Monster Rats for the Monster Rats. And the Humans laugh at the idea of Monster Rats being equal in intelligence with them. The judging scene was the most human scene to me. Squealer was the exact image of what the people without Cantus would be like. The exact positions in that scene is perfect.
And I love men who are…. well, men. So I love Satoru. Can you believe how mischievous he was and how man he is now? Really.

The past Sunday was the 2nd meetup for our Shingeki team. We had a little fun…… though I dare say we were working hard as well!! (This to justify our Shadow King’s words on Twitter that we were slogging. ) I myself have managed to complete mending Yukio’s harness and mine is to be completed soon as well. (I probably should not mention that I have managed to fulfill my unconscious desire…. my deep within my heart dream!!!)
Besides, some of these photos were taken in our King’s presence!! As I look at the photos again while transferring them, I realised I could make a story out of them!
So here goes! Please read as you enjoy the pictures. They go hand in hand.
Don’t stop me!! I would rather jump to my death than be eaten by a Titan!!
Dont worry! Here I come to save you — opps hold wrong gear-!
Here’s the right one! But its incomplete…
Nevermind! I will still run along and maybe catch some Titans for my new collection – oh what shall I name them – I’m so excited I can’t think of any names!!
There’s this good friend of mine whom I did an online business with. Well, the business fold in the end, but that did not stop us from being friends, and she is the only ONLY one who could give me a crushing hug. AND you know how good that felt? No? I tell you. It was GOOD.
So I like making things and decided to make a couple of little gifts for her. Nothing too much. Just a little card and one of those photo cube boxes I make with our old namecards.
And the inside of it… everything was linked to our friendship, as was my habit. I like to make things link.
I made one of these cubes for her before, but it was a sore point for me that it got soaked when I jumped onto her. So I wanted to make a new one, no matter what.
The pictures used this time were the photos I took when I was trying to sell the necklaces as a side line for our business.
// Love, Loggerheads.
A new post!! I have not expected that. But I unexpectedly found some SUPER old photos that I had meant to post. These were the benches found near a Hotel in Raffles Place. We have to search to find them peppered around. And I have to take a few shots with them. The sun was a killer, but I tried to edit it a little.
This is for people with big butts.
This is for kids.
This is for people who are close to each other.
This is for people who like to keep their distance.
This is for people who prefer to stand.
Of course I do not know their true purposes other than art. Functionality wise, perhaps not that much. Hope you enjoy.
