21 May 2014: Sheryl Nome @ C2AGE R.A.V.E '14

Current mood: OKAY AFTER THIS POST I'M GOING STRAIGHT TO BED because I'm already sleepy. OHOHO LIKE FINALLY. *shot*

Currently listening to:

|| Call Your Name (cover version) - Mica Caldito
|| Kaze wa Fuiteiru - AKB48


The third and last post regarding C2age 2014. In this post, I've included the best shots by the photographers I've collaborated with for a short on-event photoshoot session. :)

Photos included are only from day 1 because I didn't cosplay during day 2 orz.

I cosplayed as Sheryl Nome in the Sayonara no Tsubasa version to sort of upgrade my overall look for her. I (think) justice was made to the overall look I did, especially in terms of makeup, although my makeup kinda died after all the intense running around orz.
Still the flabby me, but oh well. :D

You can check out the photos too here on my WorldCosplay account: http://worldcosplay.net/member/yukino-hayasaka
These are the only best shots I've gotten so far. I'm actually waiting for the shots by Yuukii Chii (Kusography. Huehue) but since she's having exams now, I'll wait for it. :)

But yea, I'm really satisfied with the outcome of the photos. :D 
One thing is probably coz my dark circles aren't obvious at all in the pics and my makeup was still okay at the time these pics were taken. OwO

I might try cosplaying as another version of Sheryl Nome soon, but as for now, I'm not really sure which version to try out. Guess I'll roll around for the moment to prepare for my next cosplan! (Hint: 0048!)

Thank you for all your support! It means a lot to me. :)



21 May 2014: C2AGE R.A.V.E '14 (day 2)

Current mood: Insomnia + blocked nose = JUST LEMME DIE ALREADY.

Currently listening to:
|| Ambiguous - GARNiDELiA
|| Kaze wa Fuiteiru -  AKB48


Con-sequencing  from the previous post, this post will be about C2age 2014 day 2 and all the selfies taken during the day! :)
I will also be posting the photos of the items looted during the two days the event lasted as well as coscard collections. 

For C2age day 2, not many people attended because: 1. The date of the event itself falls in between exams in most schools; 2. It was Mother's Day.

But a lot of fabulous cosplays were found during this day HUEHUE
There were lesser selfies taken during day 2, but a lot of it were wayyy better than the ones I took during  day 1 (couldn't hold up my phone properly during day 1 because of my costume's sleeves and also I couldn't smile properly from all the fatigue orz)


Together with Chelcy as Ranka!! :)
She was busy being photographed by tons of photographers on day 2, so my famous quote comes into light: RANKA IS LIVING THE IDOL LIFE.


 Didn't get a selfie with Ashley on day 1, so here I got it on day 2!

 Kissy face much? 8D

 Adorable Nao as the adorable Honey-senpai!! :3 *huggles and kidnaps away*

 Nanami Haruka by Rosa!! :) SO PRETTY HNGH



 Fabulous Mimea prssss :D

 I wanted a pic with these fabulous people.
...so I guess I pretty much got I wanted...I guess. 8D 



 Mokuto much fab


 Yuukii my darlinggggg~ :D (not literally okeh :v I like to call my friends as "dear" or "darling" as I please because that's what I do) //very legit reasoning

 Purposely waited for Teva to finish getting ready just to get a selfie with her as Kaname Kuran. IT'S BEEN WAY TOO LONG SINCE I LAST SAW A VAMPIRE KNIGHT COSPLAY so yea. ;w;

 Fabulous Gems as fabulous Koujaku. I was extremely tempted to morest Gems when I was given the opportunity...but later his waifu will kill me... _(:3

 A (very blur, no thanks to my phone's horrible front camera) group selca with the girls who participated in the meet and greet session with me! :)

 Okay, everyone looks good except me. Which is actually okay because excuse my derp face. :)

 Syn as Hanji! A selfie with Syn as promised after I missed out the opportunity to take a selfie together on day 1. :)

 It's as if I'm fated to meet Spacechan at every event that the both of us attends. :D she was together with Kazu!! :)

 After some intense adjusting to this photo taken before the closing ceremony started, it finally turned out okay. :D
Together with Leena, Hisa (Shaun) and ultimate helper, Wen!! :D
...and also with Qurshay photobombing at the back. 8D

 A much fabulous duck face from me with Wen, Hisa and Leena once again. This shot is much clearer than the previous one. XD

 Together with my kouhai from high school! :)

Since we were bored of waiting for the meet and greet session to start, we took another selca outside the auditorium!
In the photo: Sky Fara, Leena, Ashley, me and Sinyi :)

And that pretty much concludes all the selfies taken during the event!! :)

The photo where I show you how my money magically disappeared from my purse...for all these stuff. :)

Compiled all items into one pic! :)

Listed below are the items in the pic:
- Zeasonal's photobook which I already got since last year Comic Fiesta but I brought it along with me during day 2 for Zea to autograph it for me. :)
- Tanagura blondies artwork from Kuro! :) (And yes, I am a closet Ai no Kusabi fan :v)
- Sakuya's cosplay photobook collected by Leena from MACG on my behalf. I CAN DIE IN PEACE.
- A little white bunny plush toy from Chelcy! I named it as "Sheryl" because it reminds me of the song, "Universal Bunny" from "Macross Frontier" xD
- Reika and Hiiro's full postcard set. Goodbye money.
- Group photo with the special guests at the EPSON booth. Sinyi and I still feel that our money wasn't worth to be spent on this, but oh well. :/
- New gyaru wig COD from Vivien on day 1! :)

And below are the autographs received during the meet and greet session. :)

 I had Plallen signed on one of my coscard because I couldn't get her postcard in time. ;w; (By the time I wanted to buy her postcard, it was sold out...;w;)
But this one is specially precious, so I am keeping it together with my cosplay postcard collections album. :)

 I had Hiiro to autograph on her Masato cosplay postcard because it seemed more like an idol's autograph haha xD 

 And I had Reika to autograph on her Joker cosplay postcard just coz it looks the most fabulous out of all the postcards 8D
If you look closely, she wrote my name down there wwwww

In Zea's photobook, I chose the most fabulous page photo to let Zea autograph on it. NYEHEHEH

And these are the coscards loot from this time around! Not much again as always, but all are precious. I still think collecting Yuukii's coscards are like collecting Pokemons. :v

Meet and greet session thoughts:

To be quite honest, I was not happy with the meet and greet session at all, because of the following reasons.

1.The meet and greet session wasn't even a proper meet and greet session. To be honest, it was more like a simple autograph session, and although you get to meet with the guests up close and personal to get their autographs and hug them and what not, it was nothing else beyond that. I was expecting like a short Q&A thing or maybe a special performance or a speech or something along the line. BUT NO.
2. I (and everyone else) paid RM30 for the above. I feel so cheated. My friends had the same thoughts too.
3. One of the mentioned rule for the meet and greet session was "No selfies with the special guests are allowed", which was implemented obviously to avoid from the line being jammed up behind and also to avoid from wasting time. Okay, so my friends and I obliged to the rule. Yet, the people behind us actually took selfies with the guests. Okay fine, you guys get the opportunity. The best part? None of the committees or personnel stopped them. I felt that it was really unfair for those of us who obliged to the rule. I mean, the selfies are not really important at that time for me, but to see those who broke the rule and no one went up to kindly stop them from doing so...I was kicking tables outside the auditorium due to this. 

But negative thoughts aside, I got to ask all the special guests on how they were doing and whether they are enjoying the event. They all had exhausted looks on their faces, actually, but I just want them to feel happy and appreciated. :) 

Zea asked how I was and whether I enjoyed the event. She also asked me if I could meet up with her for dinner or anything (in which I declined because I knew that opportunity was out of reach due to many reasons). 

I got to ask how Plallen was doing. She seemed exhausted, probably because she had the thought of her exams throughout the event. (She left the event venue before the closing ceremony commenced to fly straight back to Thailand due to her exams).

I got to speak to Reika for a brief moment in which she asked me why I wasn't cosplaying for that day. She also told Hiiro about me being the staff of the same event last year. Hiiro was surprised when she got to know that. XD
I got to hug the both of them as it was a promise that I just had to fulfill. :)

Little things like these do make me happy despite all the unfortunate events. So yea, I honestly did enjoy the event in a whole. xD


Okay, so before I end this post, I have a little something for all you fangirls of Reika and Hiiro.

Don't question, just watch. 8D


And that's a wrap!!! 

I will be moving on to the post solely focusing on the photoshoots that I've done during C2age 2014 (all are during day 1) so stay tuned!! :)



21 May 2014: C2AGE R.A.V.E '14 (day 1)

Current mood: CURRENTLY SICK. Couldn't even be bothered with a lot of stuff. Welp.

Currently listening to:
|| Kaze wa Fuiteiru - AKB48
|| Iiwake Maybe - AKB48


This is actually the third time I'm attending this event. I attended this event twice as a visitor and once as the organizer...so this event has an equal amount of sentimental value to it like Comic Fiesta. :)
I met a lot of friends through this event since 2010, and I'm glad to be able to still be friends with those whom I've met through C2age. XD

Comparing to the first time I attended C2age back in 2010 ( C2age 2010 report ), a lot of things have changed. But the connection with friends remain the same. Of course meeting with new friends is also a pleasure. XD

For this year, C2age 2014, with its theme: R.A.V.E (Radicalizing Anime Via Etntertainment), it is once again held in the infamous feet-torturing HELP College of Art and Technology campus. (I only said that because all of us had our feet dead over having to climb up and down six floors - seven floors in some cases - with our costumes and stuff orz)
Not working behind the scenes for this year really gave me the chance to catch up with everyone else that I couldn't meet up with for the past few events. I also got to know a couple of new people and met a few admirable senpais!! :D

I will be separating the post about C2age 2014 into three: day 1, day 2 and photoshoot photos.
This post will be about day 1 (10 May 2014).

For day 1, I cosplayed as, once again, Sheryl Nome in the Sayonara no Tsubasa version. I am most glad that I'm able to do justice and better than previously for this time. It's a sort of achievement that I'm really happy about XD
Everyone also looked very fabulous for day 1!! XD

So here are the photos~ OwO)/

 Together with Luxun!! It's also been a while since I last met you. :3

 Together with my already-horribly messed up fringe part of my wig, I managed to take a selfie with one of the guest of honor from Thailand: Plallen!!
I managed to get my chance when the PR personnel brought the two Thai guests down to the shopping mall area to look around. :)
I've been a big fan of Plallen since last year when Yuui told me about her. I followed her updates on her cosplays ever since, and through the WCS Karaoke Grand Prix last year, I also got to find out that she is a brilliant singer!! I really wished to see her sing live but the time doesn't permit it ;w;

It was still great being able to meet her in person. SHE IS SO NICE OMG *tempted to huggle*

 Intensified eyebags from me hueh. 
Together with the man behind the famous A.R.C Photography page, Alex! OTSUKARE!! :3

 Thomas @ Hexlord's face huehuehuehuehueuehue

 Okay I'm already out of my glam mode from here on out. Got a chance to take a quick selfie with Yuuiki!! :3 her Satsuki-sama cosplay very fabulous ;w;)/

 I coincidentally bumped into all five of the special guests towards the end of the day just before I went home. XD
I also got a chance to take a selfie with one of the two Japanese guests, Hiiro-san! She was cosplaying as Annie Leonhart from Shingeki no Kyojin, and may I just cry over her majestic beauty because SHE IS SUCH A RARE BEAUTY I WANNA CRY.

*continues gross sobbing at the sight of her beauty*

My shiawase moment with Hiiro-san caught in the moment from another angle by Leena! xD
I look less unglam from here and Hiiro-san looks way more glam in this photo. 

 Together with the man behind the lenses of Dark Lab Visuals, Feito! His photos of my Sheryl Nome cosplay are stunning! (I will upload them on my third post ~XD)

 Since I complained that my face looked dark in the previous photo, so we took another photo while holding up a reflector. HUEHUEHUE okay I'm such an asshole *rolls into cave*

A rare full view photo of my Sheryl Nome cosplay by 胡宝哲. My fringeeeeeeeeeeee ;w;

 Instax photo collection by Rosa Aoba! :)
I like the fact that my photo is surrounded by all the good looking people. HUEHUE. //slapped

Hailing all the way from Johor, she attended C2age to meet a couple of us. XD
