GACC 2008 – Part I (Cosplay)

Posted by Neko Kyou in Personal on March 3rd, 2008

So I woke up at 6am this morning (or rather, yesterday morning, since it’s already passed midnight) because I was supposed to go to MMU Melaka for the Games Anime Comic Circle, the same one Kurogane had been covering for both days of the event. The original plan was to start heading towards our destination by 7am and reach there by 10.

But, I ended up waiting until 9am before my ride arrived. If we had left when we had originally planned to, we might have realized that earlier that we needed to get a number in order to get an autograph from Masakazu Morita, which was only limited to 100 people.

It’s actually my first time attending an event such as this, so the experience is really very new to me. And even though I was looking forward to it, I didn’t know I would have that much fun running around, checking out the booths and cosplays. There’s also something else I’ve learned, cosplays looks so much better when you’re there to see it in person rather than just looking at pics. Some might look good in person but doesn’t even look half as good when captured on camera. Now I’ll probably think twice before judging pictures taken of cosplays which looks lame.

And, I really need to invest in a newer, better digital camera with a larger memory stick the next time I attend such an event…

The whole album has been uploaded in full size to my flickr’s GACC2008 album. Here are some of my favourite shots of the day:

Hitsugaya & Matsumoto Cosplay GACC2008

Hitsugay taichou has really funky hair

Ichigo & Espada Cosplay

The Espada cosplays are pretty good, I think the entire Espadas were there…

Syaoran & Sakura

How can I resist cosplays of my favourite series? And I really love this pose!

Hard Gay!

“Domo! Haado Gay des! FOO!!!”

Ichigo & Rukia

Bleach cosplays were all over the place thanks to Morita-san being the special guest?

Masakazu Morita

Masakazu Morita greeting his fans (read: everyone in the room)

As I was just telling Dyna recently while discussing about a post idea he had, Japanese seiyuu’s are worshipped pretty much wherever they go as long as there are anime fans around. And that’s pretty much everywhere.

Kon & Me

Kon is one of the best cosplay around 😀

I managed to take a few short videos of when Morita was on stage (and screaming “Bankai!” multiple times) and spent almost all the money I’ve brought with me which I’ll be putting up in the next post or two. Fortunately, I didn’t have that much with me, so I didn’t spend that much. Unfortunately, that also meant that I couldn’t buy many stuff which I wanted to. Like the Haruhi figurines. Damn, those are expensive!
