Hope you're all doing well!

Sydney Supanova convention 2013 has finally passed by and I have to say it has got to be one of the most enjoyable SydNova I've been despite the crappiest weather. I think because I cosplayed characters that people knew and also got to hung out with such amazing people and friends.

For me, I don't really check the stores because I don't really buy anything- it's more of hanging out with people and cosplaying and hopefully be able to get pictures. Unfortunately I wasn't able to hold onto my camera and my phone is just too laggy (I now use an Iphone 3GS since I lost my other phone) so I wasn't able to capture any pictures.

Sydney Supanova 2013 was a 3-day event from Friday 21st June 2013 to Sunday 23rd June 2013. Here's a video that a friend of mine recorded and made which sums up Saturday and Sunday of the convention which also features me: (will add the video player once blogger recognises it on youtube)

I was really busy on Friday working and finishing on my friends and my cosplay for Saturday so I didn't end up going to it. But I saw some pictures from fellow photographers and cosplayers and they look amazing.

On Saturday 22nd June 2013, I cosplayed as Blood Moon Akali from the Free online game League Of Legends.

I cosplayed with a group of friends and amazing people who were also doing LoL [League of Legends] and it was just so fun. Surprisingly there were also many other LoL cosplayers that we didn't know and also surprisingly ALOT of people knew the cosplays which was really amazing. Our group was actually larger but due to the timing of the convention and also many of our friends have their final exams, they weren't able to make their costume and props on time. Also some members of the group got lost haha! BUT I'm sure the photoshoot organised sometime end of the year for the group will be amazing.

Had some annoying encounters with the costume as it was slowly falling apart such as the mask on my head and my props and my wig especially when we haven't even gone on stage but luckily my friend Tim (as garen) had masking tape which saved the day.

We entered the cosplay competition as the LoL Orgy (no idea who came up with the name LOL) and surprisingly we won as the best cosplay group. The comp kinda trolled us while we were on stage and screened the Dota 2 logo.. them plays.. haha! Unfortunately the prize for the WHOLE GROUP consisting of 9+ people was only ONE certificate. Our friends tried to ask for more since it's just a piece of paper with no specific name but they refused so we were left with just one for our group leader Tim. Which was alright but the thought of giving just one and refuse to give more when it's a piece of paper with no specific name or anything is abit.. yeahhh. Oh well.

Overall Saturday was really fun and worth the pain in heels and even with the bad rainy weather. Was just amazing being able to see friends and meet new people and hang out. Also being able to be recognised and get photo taken and having shoots.

Sunday was really laxed since it's the second day of the convention and we were all tired from Saturday so we left the house at 12.30-1pm and got ther around 1.30-2pm. I also went out to my local area in my cosplay to buy some cakes for friends to share around. The weather was still bad but wasn't as bad until the afternoon. I cosplayed as Togashi Yuuta from the anime/manga Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai.

To be honest I had no idea what to cosplay for Sunday and especially this convention was more western-based, literally no idea. At first I planned to cosplay Yukina Kou from the Boy's Love Anime/Manga Sekaiichi Hatsukoi but alot of things came to my mind which made me hesitate to cosplay such as being at a western-based convention, the weather and my wig color. After browsing on Facebook a while I saw my friend's preview of what she was doing which was Takanashi Rikka from the Anime/Manga Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai which I was suppose to cosplay with them but I forgot about it and her preview looked really good. So I thought to myself maybe I should revert and cosplay with them. Before doing so I had to look through my cosplay costumes to see if there were any blazers I could modify and so I had one, my Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu blazer. Got some satin ribbon out and doublesided tape and tried covering and replacing the trims. After successfully covering and taping the trims, It was official and decided that I will be doing Togashi Yuuta. Took out my red tie and start sewing the ribbon stripes and borrowed my friend's vest. Also I had the wig already from a previous testing which was great. So that's really the story to how I ended up with this cosplay. I know right, cool story bro but I'm really happy with it :D.

Rocked up with our mini group :D

I always have so much fun with these two. They're literally chuunibyou's LOL! We did see another small group of cosplayers who also did Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai but instead of a Yuuta they had a Nibutani which was really awesome and we were able to get a photo with them towards the end of the convention.

Sunday was mainly just hanging out with everyone and doing photoshoot with our friend photographers and yeah. Saw many amazing cosplays and also saw more League of Legends cosplay which was sooo cool!  Mainly hung indoors since the rain was really heavy and also they didn't let us hang out in the foyer which was annoying so yeah. Overall very laxed day :)

And that sums up for the convention weekend.
To finish off the post, here's a preview of a service photoshoot I had with the awesome Dat of Kise x Kagami  from Anime/Manga Kuroko no Basuke ;)
