Lazy because after having attended and covered this several times over, there really isn’t too much more to say about Cosfest. It’s the same old, same old cute and cozy cosplay event at the same out-the-way but pretty nice location at Downtown East. So we went down, and we photoogled, and I’m just gonna let my iffy photos do most of the talking here.
We went down on Sunday evening this time round, and somehow it felt like the density of cosplayers and the level of cosplay elaborateness is a little thinner this time than the last. Maybe it’s because the cosplay meet was the day before. Also, we were cursed with an irritably hot sun that evening, even by local standards, and so the number of cosplayers languishing around the otherwise magnificent grass lawns were somewhat on the low side. There was also only one hall open that day, with the doujin booths ringing the periphery while the cosplayers and photographers frolick in the center.
There were still plenty of cosplayers though. If there’s one thing that’s special about Cosfest in my opinion, it’s the really high ratio of cosplayers amongst the throngs of people milling around the location. Every other person has a costume on of some sort. It’s really pretty nice and gives the event its almost unique air.
Anyway in comes lazy, semi-captioned spill of photos:
It felt like at the end of the day the greatest damper on our spirits was that blasted sun and its insufferable heat. I hate the weather here more often than not. It was still fun, of course, and I did eventually leave the little place with a single tiny piece of loot. Yes, another… mousepad :P
