Cosplay Mania 2011 –Day 1 (Part One)

cosmania As promised, here I am your RABID FANGIRL, Cosplay Photographer and Blogger updating you on the events, things and happenings about Cosplay Mania 2011. The event is being held in SMX Convention Center from October 1-2, 2011 and despite the threat of Typhoon Quiel, anime lovers, cosplayers and photographers –enthusiasts and more flocked to the venue to enjoy it.

I was with N this time. So the both of us took about 500 pictures or more so since we can’t show everything online, I am supposed to do the highlights…

I wonder how I should start this. Hmmm… Alright then…  Here I go…

I loved the crowd definitely. It was a fun crowd.  The cosplayers were nice – a lot of them were prepared though some, like myself, ghettoed it. It was a good atmosphere. The place itself was teeming with cosplayers, photographers and some fans just having fun. Even N who was quite a novice about these things enjoyed.

The merchandisers area was crowded, but the cosplay hall adjacent to it was huge so I wonder if they could have just extended the merchandise area so it’s not so squished together. It was hard to move, you can’t even walk very far in it. >.> but I am sure they’ll consider this next time…

Anyway on to what people are looking forward to the most. Cosplayers! ❤ Since this convention is dedicated to cosplayers there were A LOT. I couldn’t get over how many there were. Everywhere I looked there were good cosplays, so-so and ghetto cosplays but they were cosplayers. I got swept back into the hobby just like that.

Here are some of the Cosplayers I met and flailed over. See my rabid fangirliness!!

I loved these guys!  Toki Toki Nicole was amazing in her sexilicious outfit!!  And that Hibari cosplayer that was about to Kamikorosu me actually looked like Kondo Takashi! I swear!! Bel and Fran was fun and the whole KHR group was amazing! Though I didn’t see anyone in Byakuran or Mukuro (how odd) … Andrew Venturina(Tamaki) who was wearing that awesome Frankentstein was a sweetheart! And the rest of them, just ROCKS!
