Day two and three of Hyper Japan where set to be the busiest as always, though i did wander with the hot weather if people would stay away and enjoy the sun.
I don't know if on the door ticket sales where as frantic as previous years and with the bigger venue it never really got to the point where you could not move in the venue. even though some isles and of course the main stage areas where always busy at prime times and Nintendo seemed to be causing a stir with all the new games they were showing and the competitons they where running.
Stall browsing,Cosplay and Tomodochi Life stole my time, where did it go?
Saturday saw the first of cosparades and so many cosplayers where arriving by the minute. Though the cosparade was not overly long ,the entrants where top knotch and performed well.
Of course many cosplayers turn up in pre-made outfits and of course these don't qualify for the cosparades or any competitions ,but then not every one is a able seamstress.
Myself i chose to cosplay as Kato Rumi on Saturday in my Manafactured St Marie Academy school Girl uniform from the Yumerio Patissiere TV anime series.
Fans of Jpop and Rock where lucky with live performances from Yanagi Nagi and ''One Not'e''
With the cosplay desk and stage holding workshops and photo shoots there was a lot for the cosplayers to do when they were'nt chearing the cosplayers on stage or playing Nintendo. .
Or just trying to chill out in the heat.
Our Cosplay hosts ,Traddional dance,One Not'e Jrock and of course ,Cosplay
Sunday saw another fine day ,again i myself decided to cosplay,Chrome Dokuro this time . after two days i was starting to feel it a bit ,so i must admit i didn't get there to early .
We caught the Siro-A performance and of course Sunday was the ECG (European Cosplay Gathering ) competitions and another cosparade for the Sunday attendees.
With a A list group of cosplay judges and a packed main stage area the entrants had there work cut out for them , some of the work that they put in is quite amazing.
There was some debate i over heard surrounding the cosparade ,but the show went ahead but maybe not to plan as the cosparade entrants had hoped for. It was pretty obvious if you where there .. More in our main feature of Hyper Japan next week..
