Today was the last day of Japanizam 😥
And today was the biggest crowd of all 4 days and THE BEST day of all!!!
Today was COSPLAY day!!! I didn’t participate in cosplay competition or had cosplay costume for that matter but…I did wear my yukata ^_^
Yukata I’m wearing was made by Mina Petrović – Mistiqarts ❤
And I know that you are anxious to hear about today but let me first keep my promise and present to you rest of the participants in Artist Alley.
Mila do Tokija
Vilena Viscaria corsets
And manny others
As well as our gifted kids that made cute portraits of visitors 🙂
My promise is fulfilled now and I can write about todays events.
In noon doors was open and people start coming….
First event that caused euphoria was Performers Show where dancers and singers had their time under the spotlight.I did managed to sneak and see some performances. But I did filmed performance of Chiemi Fukumori
And performance of Ultimate Dance by Borivoje Naumovski -which was truly fantastic unfortunately stage set was in shadow so on my video you can see only shadows … the video I’m gonna link to you is just a bit better but when I get good video later on I promise that I will post it 😉
During this events corridors where empty but in the time between two events… well it looked like this
People in cosplay costume where all around, and I must say this – competitors were seen in their costumes on stage for the first time so…next pictures are visitors in cosplay costumes ^^
In 17 pm corridors of Youth Center truly resembled to some ghost town, that was appointed time for most expected event of the day – COSPLAY DEFILE and competition.
Defile was divided into two parts. First part was for the juniors they did compete but they did not participate in the selection for participation in this year EuroCosplay in London – which was first prise for the competitors over 18 years .
These pictures are from juniors part and I have to say it was really hard to catch a good picture – they all were very active
While our organisers dressed in their costumes introduced second part of competition I managed to snap few photos of public, and we had cosplayed and
international public indeed ^_^
Then started second part in which first prize winner is going to represent Serbia on EuroCosplay in London.
Not only public vas international, these two girls came from Croatia to compete, Sakurabana starting from this year is regional representative for EuroCosplay.
My battery died so I missed some competitors but not before I managed to snap a photo of lady whose costume won first prize – Ljubica Dolasevc
Awards were given to winners by Japanese ambassador Masafumi Kuroki
After that I managed to “hunt down” and photograph ladies from Sakurabana organisation in their costumes Jelenu dressed as Sister from WH40K
and Isidora as Griffit from Berserk anime/manga, well to be honest I didn’t miss the opportunity to take picture of her with second prise winner performing as Guts from same anime/manga (one of my favorites) ^_^
Whit that only Jpop/Jrock party left…but I was to tired to wait it. With sorrow I left still crowded Youth Center.
