Cosfest 2010 (Part 1)

Went to my first Cosplay event last Sunday (5 July 2010). COSFEST IX, at Downtown east, is the site for the Cosplay regional finals. Winners from various South East Asian countries and Korea come down to Singapore to compete for the chance to win an all expense paid trip to Japan for the worldwide Cosplay finals. The great thing about COSFEST is that everyone there is an anime fan. No one judges you or your taste in anime. Every cosplay is a great cosplay. And everyone is just having fun posing for photos and being in-character! Photos after the jump!

Wild Joe Abuki (Ashita no Joe) appears! Pokemon battle referee all ready to conduct the battle.
Random Yakuza girl? Not sure where she's from...
Lightning and Snow (Final Fantasy XIII). Really well made costume and props!

Nanoha? Not too sure. Get back to you after I finish season 1!

Chibi Hitsugaya (Bleach), with 2 Lukes from Vocaloid?

No idea which anime she is from, but she was attracting a lot of attention for the detailed costume.

All the winners from the respective countries. Frankie (One piece), 2nd from right, represents Singapore.

Hitman Reborn!

From left to right: Regular Cardcaptor Sakura, Awkward (but happy) guy, Shadow card Sakura.

Group photo of characters I have no clue about.

From shoujo anime La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~

Chibi Inuyasha! Kagome ran off somewhere when I took this photo.

On the right is Sai (Naruto). On the left, Temari?

Azu-nyan and Yui! (K-ON)

Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid) with Kon (Bleach)

Tifa (FF7 Advent Children) getting ready to use Limit Break

A family of Ninjas (Naruto). Who knew Crocs were so popular!

Great props and makeup on this guy who seems to be from Sengoku Basara (or another Sanguo anime)

This guy put his costume back on just so we could take a few shots. Thanks Domo-kun!

Is Shizuo (Durarara) looking for a fight? We shall see...

FFXIII cast. All in nice costumes.

Out of the blue (pun intended), a bunch of Yellow Scarf guys started gathering around this lone Blue Squares kid (Durarara)

Naturally, they all started beating him up!

Shizuo spots the fight!

Everyone trying to pin him down.

But it was futile. Perhaps Zaraki Kenpachi (Bleach) helped?

No idea where she's from but cool costume.

Nanoha group photo?

Kakashi and Sakura (Naruto) posing for a Teacher-Student photo.

Ichigo in his semi-hollow form (Bleach)

Yay Rukia (Bleach)!
