Well, after taking a quarter of a day to sort out, clean the GCA08 images the best I could and resize them, I am finally ready to post them.. Well, the CosCon @ Games Convention Asia was held just yesterday (Saturday)..
The convention was partially covered with cosplayers who want to show their outfit and also to join in the CosCon competition which I will show you all later.. So anyway, I went there with my brother, Infestor51, together with his friend, TX at about 10.30am..
I met up with Feidamu and we scour around for any signs of cosplayers.. Fortunately in the wee hours of the convention, we spotted a Lich King cosplayer who is apparently, Fei's friend.. So I took some shots of the Lich King with his "short-handed" Frostmourne..
We continued walking around and took more pictures of cosplayers who started to stream in at about 12pm.. Enjoy the pictures.. ^^
Well, I expected Loli Illyasviel von Einzbern cosplayer or Illya for short to return but what I didn't expect was that there is a Loli Saber too.. O.o
Yes, you heard me right, there are now two Lolis from the Fate/Stay Night series.. Their dress looks nice and pretty that they got praised by some people when they walked around..
Well, the photographers thinks the same way too.. This might be one of the good loli cosplayers around since Loli Haruhi from CosFest.. ^^

Well, even the SWAT team and Delta Force group were there to show everyone their stuff.. I like how their weapon looks, so accurately real..
Ok at about 2pm+ it was time for the CosCon competition.. Well, I didn't expect the cosplayers to be great but I was slightly wrong.. Well, lets move on to CosCon copmpetiton..
There are about 20 cosplayers who took part in the competition.. There were some weird and downright ugly cosplayers but there were some that was unique and interesting..
Examples are the Head-Crab character from the game "Half-Life 2"..
The Blood Elf from World of Warcraft..
The Knight Templar from the game "Hellgate London"..
FOR THE LIVING!!
And some of the audience favourite's, Lelouch..
So firstly the 20 cosplayers are cut down to 10 finalists.. After that, the 4 winners are chosen from the 10 finalists.. The Top 4 winners are as follow:
4th Place: Kasumi for "DOA".. Prize is a Gaming Chair..
3rd Place: Blood Elf.. Prize is a Gaming Chair too..
2nd Place: Lich King from WoW.. Prize is a Wii..
1st Place: The Hulk in Armour aka Thrall.. This is the best prize EVER!! The prize is a ticket to BlizzCon2008 at California..
After that, its back to cosplay photoshoot.. Enjoy.. ^^
Well, at least my my question have been answered when I saw some decent Vocaloid cosplayers.. There were the Kagamine Twins..
But thanks to Ruby-san, I finally saw the best picture of Miku-chan.. She was there during the convention.. Although I took my own pictures of Miku, the pictures weren't as good as the other better photographers..
