sing when you're wanking

Another year, another Cosfest. Even though I only attended the day 2 of the event, this year's edition turned out memorable for me, thanks to...
That silly grin remained a permanent fixture on my face once I caught sight of him. Man, I'm not even a mecha fan and I'm going wobbly knees over him. I can totally empathized if the Gundman fans experienced multiple orgams on that day.
Look at the details and craftsmenship of his costume.
Gundman pondering how long before he will appear on youtube.
*Insert mechanic roar*
Gundam-san trying to get intimate with the Chang-Er dressed alike..
Which didn't go down too well with the Kung Fu posse. Of course, Gundman easily fended them off.
If only the Kung Fu posse consulted me before their skirmish, I would gladly point them towards the chink in Gundam seemingly impregnable amour for a
1 million dollars. Mwahahaha
Someone hand me some rubber bands.
Another uber cool cosplayer was Optimus Prime.
Monkey D. Luffy fascinated with the presence of the scarlet monster truck
Optimus: Er...Where did the bad guys go?(Ps. The gal in green looks kind of cute)
Subordinate: Boss, they finished their business and even had time for pratas and teh tariks while you were transforming.
Optimus Prime looks like Mini-Me.
But that did not stop him from squaring off with Gundam...
And comparing the size of their...er.. exhaust pipes.
Dream and Death from the Sandman gracing this year's Cosfest.
But don't you think he resembles 陈汉典 from 大闷锅 and 康熙 ?
Pee, you're on Candid Camera!
A annual highlight is of course meeting 031 at the event
031's cosplaying as .. I dunno, some pizza hut delivery gal in a shocking pink outfit, on day 1.
The pink monster and Sheryl Nomes on day 2.
Given that I have lost touch with the manga/anime scene sans the weekly viewing of One Piece, Bleach and Naruto manga, I couldn't really identify 99% of the costumes that were being paraded by the cosplayers. However the below few managed to catch my eyes during the event:
The Most Nosebleed inducing Cosplayer
This lady showed up for the first day of the Cosfest. Thankfully I wasn't around, or the National Bloodbank would be facing an unprecedented shortage on that day.
A close second, the gal with the big mechanic wings, and a crayfish shell amour.
Most Colorful Costume
The most colorful and catchy costume. Now is the cosplayer male or female? Hmm
Most WTF!? Costume
According to Ooof, the closest thing to an Otaku in my social circle, he/she is Elizabeth the Duck from Gintama.
Most Authentic Cosplayer
For the third year running, Mr. Chao Li Ku wins with his getup as Singapore SAF Recruit.
And there you go, my tongue-in-cheek take on this year's Cosfest. Please do not be offended by what is written here, for I am just a useless piece of pink meat.
