All right, Joo has done the honors with her immensely picture intensive entry on the EOY 2006. Other than the rather bad management (NOR, shouldn’t you help them with your event management skills?), the whole event has tons of good cosplayers. Honestly, even with the non-existent order, the cosplay standards are really improving, since the four of us did not really expect too much.
That, by the way, is the wisest ever decision because I was totally bowled over. There are tons of really great cosplayers and some of them are so friendly and nice, that I will think that they are wonderful. Completely.

Section 1: Cosplayers first!
1. Jirou and Kotarou from BBB – “They are so sweet!”
First things first, this cosplayer and another cosplayer (probably her friend) are just about the sweetest and nicest cosplayers around that I have met in the whole exhibition. She is not only nice to talk to, but also very helpful, especially with her friend who actually cosplayed in two constumes. One was honey-sempai from Ouran high (if I remembered correctly) and her friend actually changed especially for me to Kotarou. Personally, I found it very embarrassing for them to change just that, but I really appreciate the step forward and I will somehow like to thank the two of them a lot for the allowance of this humble blogger the chance to take pictures of them. Thank you so much, even though I know not of your name.
2. Ouran High cosplayers – “Kiss, kiss, fall in love <3"
I reallly like the Ouran High cosplayers. Even though the clothing is not much harder to do compared to some of the more elaborate ones, they really found some really nice people to do it. Haruhi in the first picture as well as Honey-sempai in the group picture really looked like them and I am totally impressed how some of the cosplayers really look very pretty actually. The Haruhi really has that ambivalent look that is clearly feminine, yet somewhat….I can’t describe that feeling.
It is pretty surprising how pretty they can be, since my image of cosplayers is really negative to be honest. I apologize for my stereotyping but I now feel that all cosplayers are really pretty people. It makes me interested to really cosplay, slim down and do something interesting next year. I am sure Joo and Nor will agree on cosplaying. JW (alkanphel)? I am not too sure, we have to see how it goes, ya? However, you might see the authors of T.H.A.T blog soon to cosplay next year, so you can hold your breath one day.
3. This really pretty cosplayer – “*so cuteeeeeeeeeeeeee~ moe~”
Initially, Impz thought that this cosplayer was Japanese because her features are really delicate for a Chinese. However, I then heard her speaking Chinese and realized that it was not the case. In any case, she is really pretty and cute and I personally like how she dressed up in a kimono because kimonos generally make people with baby faces look even better. This girl is perhaps one of the most pretty cosplayers that I have seen in this exhibition. Considering the amount of beauty in this cosplay, she is definitely one of the top notch ones.
4. Vincent from FF7 – “Wowed speechless”
To me, this is the best costume cosplayer among all that I have seen. I really like her features because it fits with the cool Vincent look. I do have a pic of her when she is out of the Vincent mode and she in fact does have a very good smile, only that she cannot smile with that look on her. Hah. It’s pretty sad that such a nice smile has to hide behind a cold and deathly Vincent look but she is still the best cosplayer in terms of costume for me. You can tell that Impzie is completely impressed.
5. Bleach cosplayers – “Wahhhhhhhh~ Not bad!”
Both Ishida and Shunsui’s costume are pretty well done. I am totally impressed by the workmanship of the two costume and to be honest, the two cosplayers are pretty good too. I like these 2 characters in Bleach the most when I watched Bleach fanatically. Not too bad stuff here.
6. DeathNote cosplayers – “I watched only the movie…but…wow!”
I personally profess to not watching Deathnote, even though as an anime blogger, I do know roughly about the series. Hence, I am not too surprised that some people will be keen on cosplaying them. Still, I am surprised at the detail of Misa and L. The first L has that slightly moody and clever glint in her eyes while the 2nd L has that dangerous look that sometimes L can have. Both of them, even though they portray the same character, gives off a completely different feeling altogether.
I do applaud the Misa cosplayer too, because the amount of detail is wonderful.
7. Miscellaneous cosplayers – “Just because they are all one picture only…But very good too!”
These are all pictures that really deserve to be up here because they are so impressive. Who does not like the forbidden love relationship between the awesome Desu angel Suiseiseki and the babelicious tomboy Souseiseki (who I think is rather pretty), or the love of Sakura and Xiaoran in Tsubasa Chronicle or the dangerous alliance of Misa and Light. All wonderful cosplayers by their own means and due to the laziness of this blogger, he can only say that he’s sorry he did not devote that much lines for each of them. They are really wonderful!
Section 2: Merchandise! Little but great stuff!
1. Osaka goodness! – “Huh???”
Osaka is great. BANZAI!….And remember, Osaka’s seiyuu is Tsuruya’s seiyuu, which means one more thing. GREATNESS! This is also dedicated to Nor because she is a crazy fangirl of Osaka!
2. Rozen maiden’s drawings
Rozen maiden’s drawings. I so regret being totally broke because the drawings are really top notch stuff. I so want to buy them if I do have some cash, it totally rocks my socks off seriously.
These dolls are really beautiful. I am not a very experienced person when it comes to Dolls and the likes, but the workmanship applied to the dolls are really intrinsic. Really impressive work right there. I also met up with a classmate from my university when she is presenting the dolls. Thanks a lot, Sharon, for the explanation. It really helped wonders!
Section 3: Domo-kun!
…Because a tired domo-kun deserved a whole section to himself. Cheers!
This section is dedicated to Joo because she’s a crazy scary and dangerous camwhore who likes Domo-kun a lot. Yes, she’s scary.
