137 [lost tsubasa: series 2]

| coscon 2008 |

I remember receiving an SMS from M asking if I wanna come (or was it another event?)/ throwing things into my bag and taking the train down to the East side/ meeting M / losing M / being abandoned together with A (we first met) by M / rushing to take photos / always pulling away from A to take photo but always knowing where to find her again / crying over blur photos / laughing over cute omakes & cross-over from different animes the cosplayers thought up / relieved at being able to take a photo even if it is not a good or professional one / awed by the cosplays & cosplayers / not wanting to leave / the ending chicken dance

Those were the memories / the laughters / the good times

It wasn’t good professional photography; just because I love anime so much and cosplay opened up my {dark|mini|in the room} world so much.

Looking back at the photos and seeing people I recognise and yet did not know of / or knew of but had yet recognised in their cosplay outfits … and remembering all the cosplays they did that I remembered.

I remembered being so happy because of this happy sight.

https://briefeananna.wordpress.comI remembered being so awed by them & upset that it was blurry…. and then linking this photo to the one above. Lols.

I remember taking photos with my compact camera, the best I had then.

I remember not knowing much about photoshop and not knowing that I can edit the extra feet away.

*I remember chasing after cosplayers in their funny poses from the anime/manga itself & upset that I can’t catch them.

I remembering being awed by how young but good these cosplayers are / the sheer variety of cosplays we had. Now, they only knew how to spam Miku/Miku/Miku/Miku and some other more popular characters.

I look at these beautiful cosplays and I think of how half-assed a lot of cosplays are now.

I remembered thinking; this is what a cosplayer is, when I saw her come in fully dressed and business like, set down her bag and made a pose. Then, when all the clicks were mostly done, she picked up her bag and left to enjoy the event.

I remember thinking, there just wasn’t enough to see. My eyes had to take it all.

I remember this cosplayer commenting that she is so old already, but she is still cosplaying so brilliantly.

I have never seen a cuter duck~

We are sorely lacking shots like this in our current cosplay scene. =..=

I didn’t know what was photobomb at that time. I learnt.

I remembered being so surprised and happy that they did this even though I can’t stand the pace of the anime. It was so wonderfully done.

And this was the last cosplay photo of the day. I remember feeling so lucky that I saw this.

I hope it wasn’t too long.
