Cosplay @ Klang Parade

OMG! I really had fun editing these photos. It really reminds me of my childhood. I stopped enjoying anime and comics a couple years ago. 'Cause ya know, adulthood and responsibility took over my life. I had to put aside these fun stuff.

Anyways, this event brought up by Klang Parade and Cosplay Malaysia Community seriously had enlightened up my weekend. Seeing these amazing characters and Cosplay enthusiasts, I just couldn't stop myself from this hype.

Just look at those outfits, if the details didn't compel you to liking it, I don't know what else would.

This adorable contest was open for public participation, regardless of how amateur or skillful you are. Some had nearly five years of experience and some had like, a couple of month experience, but still causing some awesome rivalry. The main idea was to promote the sub-culture that had been trending for decades now. Creativity and passion, those are the concept that people could see in this event.

Seems pretty simple, isn't it? Well, you might want to reconsider that. 'Cause wearing only good outfit doesn't ensure you the champion title. Sort of like a beauty pageant, with wicked-looking costume of course, the judges were judging based on these following aspects:

    Costume       -  40%
    Catwalk        -  10%
    Creativity     -  20%
    Performance -  30%

Not very simple now huh?

The entire contest was pretty competitive. Even my friends and I couldn't decide on who should be the winner. But in the end, SORA & LINGERING WILL from 'Kingdom Hearts' took the champion title. MR. SATAN from 'Dragonball' got himself a second and UCHIHA MADARA from 'Naruto' got the third.

God I hope there will be more to come. Either personal or by invitation, I'm gonna anyway. This is just way to fun to be missed.

Movie - Star Wars : The Force Awaken

Honestly speaking, I am not a die-hard fan of "The Star Wars". I did watch the movies before and it was pretty good. As for this new sequel, I'm rating it 8 out of 10. I would add in one more point if they managed to put in more stories on Ray. She's a main character, she deserves to have a better backstory.

Okay, here we go. The same thing that I do after reading or watching something good - I'm going to list down the few things that I love about it.

First on my list, let's take a look on the origin of Star Wars. It started back in the 70's and it was created with original contents. Unlike some movie nowadays, where they tend to make adaptation from various source - comics or novels.

Secondly, the characters. One of the thing I love when watching a movie with multiple different characters, is how all of them are distinct from each other. A scavenger girl, who later on took over an important journey in finding Luke Skywalker, the greatest Jedi master. A former Stromtrooper who decided to leave the First Order after being sent for his first task. A charming pilot that unintentionally left his droid behind and ultimately, met the descendant of Jedi.

Finally, the graphic. Some people wouldn't consider that as an awesome thing. But you know what, I truly appreciate every detail they have put in the movie.Spaceship chase, wicked explosion and those breath-taking scenery. I just couldn't have enough of it.

Anyways, this is only the first week of the movie. I think tickets for next week are available. You should really go and check it. Thanks for reading this.
