I was out for my evening walks with my camera, looking for interesting creatures to shoot at Pasir Ris Park. Little did I know I would bump into a Monkey God, Power Rangers, and loads more that would propel me into a world of mystical – and comical – creatures.
The Golden Warriors at Cosfest XII Downtown East was hosting its 12th cosplay convention (yes, cosplay’s a serious business with regular summits and meetings), and I simply went shutter-happy. I wasn’t sure which characters most of them were playing, but I had the utmost respect for the players’ effort and dedication to bring their favourite characters to life. Sometimes, being in costume makes you feel safe & mighty, that you can do wonders and accomplish things you never could in the real world. It may not a bad thing to dream in this crazy world we live in. Besides, what’s really normal nowadays?
Power Rangers! Oh so nostalgic
The Superheros are here to save us! The Ironman suit is quite a sight :)
Superheros or not, we all feel the heat LOL
Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
Battle of the warriors? Nah, it’s just a friendly posing match :)
This was the first time I have seen Chinese mythical characters at a cosplay event – so cool! We should have more of them!
And what all the otakus came for – pretty babes
New-age Fairy Godmother?
I want their costumes. Period.
Nose bleed. And she’s all ready to beat the haze.
I know this one – it’s from a popular Japanese anime!
I seriously don’t mind wearing the white boots
Free candy! I wonder if it gives free hugs too…
Oh this mother-daughter combination is so, so cute!
I was amazed at this person’s chin – it’s reaaally that long & narrow. *baffled*
Come on, let’s do battle! No thank you, I will definitely lose, unless it’s a food fight!
Dun you just wanna save this damsel?
Dun mess with this lady
Glad to see the cosplayers having fun themselves heh
Don’t mess with this one with the flying daggers
Fallen Angels? Horny Angel?
I love the hair, so gonna get the wig!
Even the auntys were excited and went around posing with the cosplayers, kawaii neh!
Awwww…the sweetest love of them all
Sexy cowgirl, yee-haw!
So cute, the Harry Potter-ish glasses
Banging head on the wall, or what the Chinese call ‘long-piak‘
Here’s how you fight a baddie, little one…
And here’s the cutest of them all – a bouncing horse LOL I sure enjoyed my little encounter with the imaginary world! :)
