J-POPCON 2011!

I´m so glad to be again in Denmark. After my first invitation as a guest and judge for J-popcon 2011 and my private vacation and visit of the Genki convention in 2010, I was super happy to be invited again to this great event. I really love Denmark and all my friends there.  This time I could meet new awesome people as well. So first let me show you the "judges cast" for the Cosplay competitions:



from left to right: Sascha (from Denmark), Leandro ( from Portugal), me (from Germany ^^), Etaru (from USA) and Dario (from Italy).

I just arrived on Friday evening together with my traveling partner Aigue-Marine . We have both been super tired and after we met a few friends at the con, be decided to go to bed.

SATURDAY!!!

the big competition day =D! In Denmark there is only one big cosplay show and everybody can participate (groups, pairs and solo cosplayers) and you can sign up for the different categories. The categories are: World Cosplay Summit, European Cosplay Gathering Group & Solo, EuroCosplay and normal group cosplay.

before the show started we had our judges meeting. so here you can see all judges without costumes >D haha~ (left photo)


(right photo) and there was some serious stress going on between USA and Germany =O!!! haha just joking XD~, we just talked about cosplay in our countries <3. the photo just looks so much like "serious business" -_-~ lol

well, after the meeting we dressed up and went to the convention hall. there we could have a close look at all costumes for the competition and asked the participants to tell us something about their costumes and let them show us their favorite costume parts and hard-to-make pieces on the costumes. It really helped a lot to get into a conversation with the candidates. I really like it to have a proper "cosplay interview" with the participants.  after the cosplayer interview we still had some time to take photos together ^.^...


well, after that the competition started. there have been some really nice costumes and really nice performances, but two have been absolutely outstanding!!! So congratulations to the Granado Espada team to win WCS and the Madoka team to win ECG group <3!

you can see their skits here:

the Saturday ended with a great dinner party with all helpers, winners, friends and judges~

SUNDAY!!!

a day with not many duties, so we could all relax. we just had a panel about international cosplay. I think it was really interesting and I hope I could give some helpful advices for the people who wanna enter an international cosplay competition.
