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.
