today is the parade!
i was xerxes and mao was snow. we had to stay in a waiting room while everyone takes their turn to parade out of the hotel.
so i used my chui hp to take some random photos and we all fooled around a bit!
first up is mr kanda rain! (yes the costume looks familiar right... sy was wearing it for mayor meeting!)
then kanda rain became kanda when allen turned up
and saerom turned up as the sexy yuna (*drools*) with kyungmin as cloud (and his awesome 7pieces joined together cloud sword)
cannot forget to take the lovely sisters too... they were doing tales
there were 3 gakupos that day!!!! sei from thailand
lin fang from china. that's pata as alphonse behind!!!
and... and... and <3 (weehee trash frank please)
awesome vocaloid, *claps claps*
took photo with team australia too. asham's scar was WICKED.
ff team! squall walked off and i have no idea why mm not in picture, but there were 1 representatives each from ff8,9,10,x,x-2,13. awesome! (except my lousy phone chose to blur at the most important moment... again)
ooh! found the whole team!
pata saw italy's giancarlo coming to whack him...
but xerxes was the real rhino!
we practised the sailormoon bumseonlee dance before we went off
when it was finally team singapore's turn...
and there's team korea! kkkkkkakkkkkoiiii
and team italy. just look at the outrageous monstrous body made of fibreglass. WAHHHH.
if you are patient enough you can watch the whole parade here (i wasn't patient enough... so i don't think you'll be!)
team photo at the end of the parade with ske48
just the cosplayers
and did you see the mayor?!?!? samurai summit was going on as well and we all took photos together!
after the parade outside our hotel, we took a bus back to our hotel (even though it was only a 5mins walk lols)... and all the carpets were suddenly cleared... wow.
we had a 2 hour rest and grabbed a quick lunch at the reception
giancarlo and his rhino head...
when we reached osu temple, it was a huge SHOCK! look at the sheer turnout... gosh...
the dori was a looooooong walk with a million people squeezing on both sides of the red carpet. wow. we had sexy yoko in front of us from finland and she was practically stopped every second.
there was a gathering in front of the temple at the end of the walk (can't find the photo for now) where we all strode out and shouted our country's name, then gathered at the staircase for a group picture.
there was then a short show to introduce all of us before we retire for the day
at night we had a rehearsal where we had to practise laying out our props and walk the stage
preparing for the gathering before the end of the show...
tomorrow... is ... the big...day...
