[EVENT] Surabaya Anime and Toys Fair 2015

IMG_2806


Hello Guys !

I'm not gonna use the " it's been awhile " on you again this time lol. Truth is I've been really busy with events and making costumes for the first 3 months of the year ! It's almost end of March now and I've been to 4 different cities as cosplay guest so far namely Surabaya , PekanBaru , Bali and Ho Chi Minh City. ლ(´◉❥◉`ლ)

You've heard me say this many times that I feel truly blessed being able to travel and cosplay , meeting more people along the way and experiencing different cultures ! ( FOOD YAY !! ) Besides posting just photos on my page , I figured maybe some of you would love to read about my cosplay adventures ? So , let's gooooo !!!

=====================================================================

Surabaya Anime and Toys Fair 2015

It's my second time attending cosplay event in Surabaya ~ my first event in Surabaya was ANICULT 2014. This time I'm really lucky to have my Princess Hermes traveling with me ! Sometimes I do get lonely going to airport and flying by myself so with Hermes coming along with me it's much more fun hehe.

When we arrived in the airport , we were greeted by many smiling faces ! Though I feel shy seeing my face and such a big banner , thank you so much guys for preparing this for me. I know it takes a lot of effort to design and wanting to make me feel welcomed ! Appreciate your lovely thoughts very much ! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

Hermes and I were staying in Sheraton Surabaya during our trip here ! I think that a nice and comfy room is very important especially when I'm back at night after event , I can have a good rest ! The beds and pillows are super soft that my body sort of melted when I lay on it lol ! * cough * ♡(˃͈ દ ˂͈ ༶ )

This room has lots of mirrors too which were my favourite part of the room ! Since Hermes and I are pretty vain , we don't need to fight for mirrors when doing our make up ! * laughs *

Selfies because we are enjoying the room very much !
Lots of space for my luggage too ~ can even roll on the floor ! XD

For the first day , we were too tired to eat out so we had room service !
I've forgotten the name of the dish already but not the taste. It was spicy but I enjoyed it very much ~ my fav was the banana dessert ! It's so yummy that I wanna have it again one day !

Here we were like " Eh faster take selfie the ice-cream is melting !!!!! "
Usually the camera sort of " eats " first before us lol.


=====================================================================

After our lunch , we head out to check out the event area ! (●´∀`)ノ♡

For Day 2 of Surabaya Anime and Toys Fair , I cosplayed as Maki ( Love Live ) Chinese Dress Awaken ver. This costume is featured in my second photobook but I've never reaslly worn it to public before. It was fun wearing this because I really like brocade and all the gold trimmings . So shiny !

Today we get to watch many KPOP Dance Cover performances and my fav group is the POISON BITCHES. ( yup , that's their group name ) They are all boys but dressing up as ladies for the performances. I really like how energetic and confident they are when they are performing. I hope I can dance well like them too !

To be honest , I'm not really confident cosplaying as Maki because I don't think that I suit short haired characters ~ but wearing Maki to this event was fun ! Thanks to all who tells me that they like my costume. It means a lot , really !
