EVENT REVIEW

Attendees spent the day roving from workshops to merchandise table to the cafĂŠ, with spontaneous photo shoots happening everywhere. Costumes littered the population and fans were excited to see their favourite anime, game or comic characters, some cosplayers even used their own ingenuity to create personalised pieces, boredom was a non-existent word that day. The high light of the event was the stage parade and of course the cosplay competition which had a whopping 40 registered competitors, including an impressive young cosplayer who flew in all the way from Jamaica just to take part. The stage parade was a chance for non-competing cosplayers to strut their stuff on stage; they were met by cheers and applause, especially those

who did little performances. The cosplay competition was at an extremely high level that evening. The costumes were well made and the performances were brilliant with acting, voice recordings, and even small dance routines. Some performances made jaws drop, such as the winner of the night Sally Arjoon -Red Queen, her acting was truly captivating as she kept going even when her head piece fell lose, truly admirable. Kamri Jade was in second place, portraying Blade Queen Lissandra with a sharp and keen stage presence. Sharda Khan had the crowd giggling happily at her fun performance of Perona from One Piece.
