June Update #4

Besides Starfest, there were 3 other events held during the subsequent weekends of June. Although not everyone turn up for these events, but there were a lot of photographers and curious onlookers!

One of the longest running events apart from Cosfest and EOY, Streetfest has changed its venue this year to Plaza Singapura. In the past, there were more J-rock related cosplay although the focus have somewhat changed to more general cosplay series. As usual I have a very busy time that day, doing two photoshoots in the morning and covering the event as much as I can later in the afternoon. I fell ill the next day, took me a while to recover.

*SCAPE is a new building located next to Orchard Cineleisure that caters to the youth. An event was held on the 19-20 June to officially open the building.

Originally I didn't want to drop by, but I changed my mind after Yang got interested in the event. Arrived there early only to find a small number of cosplayers wandering around. There were a few good ones though, so I didn't count the trip as a waste of time.

The location's generally not that bad for shoots, especially for series that are urban-based. I was told that there's a nice rooftop as well. Anyway, I left the place after catching a few stage performances and bidding farewell to Yang and the rest.

Finally, Japan Fiesta 2010 (held at Orchard Central) was the event with the least number of cosplayers because many people are still preparing for Cosfest IX. The most interest thing about the event was the Japanese and Korean cosplayers showing their stuff on stage.... some pretty amazing performances there. You can check them out at the Youtube links I provided in the Multiply album listed below.

*phew* And that's all I have for the June updates... I still have some things to write about for this month (July) so stay tuned to the next update!

June Update #2

When Yang returned back to Singapore, we planned a few more photoshoots and here are some that we have completed so far. :)

A night shoot based on the pairing of Shinichi Okazaki and Reira Serizawa, we wandered around the streets of Orchard to get the necessary shots. I must admit its a tiring affair because the shoot took place on a weekday (meaning right after work). But nonetheless, it was a fun learning experience so more night shoots in the future!

Kuroshitsuji: VII

A Kuroshitsuji mini-shoot held before the Starfest event, it begun raining heavily right after we began shooting. We didn't go to the City Hall building in front of the Padang as it was closed due to the upcoming Youth Olympic Games, so the shoot was also cut short.

After the shoot, we went to the event but the event was relatively so-so. There's a lot of photographers and cosplayers, and I spent more time talking to friends than getting some shots.

There will be more updates to come, been a bit busy clearing out the remaining backlogs I had with Yang as well as with other cosplaying friends. Till next time! :)

June Update #1

Last year, I had a photoshoot with Shuki (who was cosplaying as Al Azif from Demonbane).

Al Azif

This year, it is a K-On! shoot with her as Azunyan! XD


It's quite hard to get hold of her due to her busy schedule, so I would like to thank her for accepting the invitation to the shoot as well as the helpers for their hard work.

Spent some time hanging out in town while waiting for my friends so that we can watch Prince of Persia. The movie's not too bad, a bit too rushed for my taste but competently done. At least it's quite entertaining!

Album: Here

Finally, I made an important update on DA. This might be my last update for now, as there will be a lot of upcoming events and shoots to cover during the next 1-2 months. Till next time, folks! :)
