Super late post from yours truly! Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I got very busy with my last ward duty that I had little time to do leisure activities. Anyway, I am done with the hospital duties and I am now "semi-free" to write maybe everyday!
Anyway, the Tzu Chi Foundation hosts the One Mega Fair, a charitable event every year and last year, 2012, was the first time that I participated. All proceeds will go to charity. Kind of a Christmas present to them! What a great way to help others!
We were in costumes that day to promote the hobby, cosplay, and maybe attract possible sponsors into organizing a cosplay event. As you all know, the cosplay community in Zamboanga is still quite new and we rarely have events and competitions down here.
I went to the event with my friends - we named our group Otaku Kazoku or the OK club. We cosplay and organize shoots for fun.
|Some of the members of OK: Cee, Gin, Shiba and Emina|
|Look at all the shoppers!|
Products from fruits to makeup are all here!! Some of the stalls off hair styling using spray-on dye and glitters!
After hanging around and observing, we headed to the dressing room to change to our costumes. Get ready for our awesome transformation!
|Hipster mirror pose? :)|
|Wacky, they said.|
|Mugi needs her servant to apply makeup on her. Oh, Hime-sama!!|
|Lelou!! Y U IN THE GIRLS' BATHROOM??|
|This guy just went straight to us and asked us if he can take a photo. He loves anime, according to him!|
|Mugi and Lelouch staying in-character. Shiba all smiles, and Queen and Mark... are Mr. and Mrs. Hitler?!|
|And our friends danced on stage! Way to muster your courage, guys!|
So after roaming around the grounds, in costume this time, we went upstairs to rest and to take more photos. I think my craziness, which will be shown below, is a result of my hunger. I tried my best to look like Lelouch despite the pervy look. :D
|I COMMAND YOU LOLITA GIRL TO BE Y GIRL FRIEND!|
|Lelouch: KISS ME|
Shiba thr Lolita: NO! *uses geass canceler*
Because of my, uhh, behavior - we decided to feed ourselves with great food offered during the fair. Again, I was not able to photos of the food stalls!! Forgive me. D:
We bought a lot and gobbled everything. I had dumplings with rice (my ultimate fave!).
Now that we were full, we were inspired to take pose for more photos and enjoy more! LOL. Before heading to a nice place to do a mini-shoot, ze MuGIN ordered me to draw her Kotobuki Eyebrows. We totally forgot to thicken her eyebrows during changing so I obliged to this request and pulled out my trusty pencil.
|RESTRAIN HER!! :D|
I did a pretty good job, eh? :)
And so... off to the hotel's lobby for the shoot!
|The hotel had a gorgeous lobby. We were lucky to have our photos taken there!|
Ishan had to head home so Sheed took our photos during this mini-shoot. Thanks Sheed!! You're really a great help to us!!
Well, that's it guys!! Hope you liked my event report! We had lotsa fun that day and it was a great experience shopping while helping others. Can't wait for Mega Fair 2013!
