Was over at this year’s End-Of-Year cosplay event over at Singapore Expo. I was there taking photos of the cosplayers.
Pictured above was what I would say the most distinguishable cosplay in the whole event. I caught sight of her coming up the escalator when she first arrived while I was heading down for lunch over at Burger King.
In other words, her cosplay was totally in sync with the character!
More pictures after the jump.
<Very Picture Intensive Post>
The selection of photos here are filtered from the 400+ photos I’ve taken. Have added a number list to each photo as I need you guys in helping me in identifying some of the cosplays. Am too out of touch ^^;
I arrived at around 12-ish in the afternoon, paid the entrance fee and found the booths my friends were at and quickly unloaded my bags with them. Grabbed my camera and started shooting.
Not much commentary for this post. Just enjoy the pictures!

9. Tsubasa Chronicles
This Gundam is totally awesome. Everyone was crowding around the cosplayer while he was preping his Gundam suit and clapped when it was done.
Who will win? Gundam or the Soldier?

20. Izumi Konata (Lucky Star) & Natsume Rin (Little Busters!) – Umehiko
21. Kazuki and Juubei (Getbackers) – Bjorn
27. Kyoya Ootori (Ouran High School Host Club)
28. Rai (Lamento: Beyond the Void) – Kazuki
They are probably original characters which I couldn’t recognize. Love their pairing though.
30. Simca (Air Gear)
31. Haruhi (Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu) & Link (The Legend of Zelda)
I want the 1/1 stick print board that’s behind her!
6 Konatas in total! This is too much! They even did the “Motteke! Sailor Fuku” from Lucky Star!
The cosplay pictures featured here are just a few of the whole lot that was there on Saturday. There were simply too many of them to follow. I realized that this year’s cosplay has improved a lot more as compared to last year’s. There seem to be more variety this year and also the rise in the quality and details of the cosplays.
This year’s EOY has also left me lusting to take more photos. I did feel that 400+ shots wasn’t suffice for the whole duration I was there.
Used an Canon EOS 400D together with a rented EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM and a Speedlite 430EX. ISO varies from 200 – 400.
I would say I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures of the cosplayers. Each shot was a different experience. Do wish to go for more photoshoots in the future in order to further my photography skills.
Am also looking to invest in a 580EX MKI (Not the MK II) as a next equipment to my EOS 400D. Anyone willing to donate? ^^;
And oh! I am also interested in joining photographers in private cosplay photoshoots to improve my skills. If anyone is willing to invite me, I’ll be glad to join in ^^; You can contact me @ windbell[at]moeside[cutedothere]net
