Group Cosplays

^Nothing beats an awesome cosplay...
... Unless it's an awesome GROUP COSPLAY!!! Oh Yeah!

Seeing a character we like excites us but seeing a character with their gang just gets us all jumpy and even more giggly, right?

So today, let's talk about group cosplays: How to plan and maybe make it better so everyone has a good time and awesome cosplay.

It's always easier to go solo. I mean, you're already stressed with your own costume, so you don't need anymore additional stress from other people's costumes, right?
But admit it, sometimes it is lonely and it's always awesome to spazz over a fandom with friends.

Group cosplays are great because it is another way for you to get to know people and their abilities but be careful, because sometimes working in teams can also strain relationships.

Here are things to remember when you are in a team or will be in one:

*Pick your team wisely.
Pick people that can be relied upon, it sucks when team mates do nothing or whine a lot or don't show up with out any explanation. Surround yourself with people that are positive and have the same goals.
Remember, you will be communicating / spending time with these people for quite some time.
You don't want to be hanging out with people you can't stand, right?

You can always form a team with your buds but a great way to get to know new friends is inviting or asking new people to be part of your squad. And sometimes, even the best buddies make such horrible team mates so choose wisely.

^Now to the day of excitement itself!
For my pre-WCS adventure with Atom, click here

2nd August, 2014
Day 1 of the World Cosplay Summit 2014

I had been sleeping all by my lonesome in our hotel when at around 6am-ish, I was awaken by a knock on the door.
Lunaru had arrived from Tokyo! She rode a 7-hour bus to go to Nagoya. heheheheh
After opening the door, some hugs then more sleep.

Woke up at around 10:30 am-ish.
Did some prepping then headed out to see the Nishiki Street Red Carpet Parade.
We were down a little after 11:00. Love that our hotel is just across the hotel where the organizers and participants are staying. hehehehe But since we were on time XD there were already a lot of people. Oh Japan. XDD

My super relaxed and i-dont-care look.
yep, walked out the hotel in just my jinbei and shades
 this is what I call my Madao look hehehe

Summer Outfits 2014

It's hot.
And I am lazy and it is hot.
Again, in case you missed that, Japan's summer is hot.
It's probably my least favorite season as it is hot and humid in Japan's summer.
Who would want to dress up only to just sweat it all off?

Still managed to put together some decent outfits for Summer of 2014.

Let's start off with some work looks.
Blue :)
I think I was overly dressed for class XD

Adventure with Atom

^Since the World Cosplay Summit was coming up, friends of mine decided to drop by Nagoya.
Atom came all the way from the Philippines and Lunaru was coming from Tokyo.
I was psyched to take them around my city before we get busy for WCS.

1st August, 2014
A day before WCS

Me and Atom met up.
We lovingly call Atom the Lakwatsero Database because there is nothing Atom doesn't know when it comes to travelling.
He is an awesome travel buddy, he wakes up early, he packs light and he knows all the best places to eat and go to.

I was supposed to be touring Atom but he knew Nagoya better than I did hahahaha.
As expected of the Lakwatsero, it was Atom who took me around Nagoya hahahahah
I wouldn't have known about the Nagoya City Science Museum if it wasn't for him. hahahah Super fail.

We got lost along the way but we saw some pretty cool sights. Like this tower, which I never knew existed. hahahaha
