Hello friends,

before I have time to report you about the complete Japan Expo trip to Paris, I write a short entry about the results of the EUROPEAN COSPLAY GATHERING 2012 in Paris on Japan Expo.

I am so happy and feel so honored that I won 1st price in this international competition *_*~
Thanks to everybody who supported me!


Thanks to the awesome ECG film crew! I never saw performance videos from conventions in THIS awesome kind of quality <3!

What is the ECG? -> The ECG is a big European cosplay competition, including 10 countries (11 in 2013) . You can participate in 2 categories: solo and group (2-3 ppl). It takes place at the largest convention in Europe: Japan Expo in Paris. Japan Expo also has the biggest and most elaborate cosplay stage of Europe.

How is it rated? -> It's 50% costume and 50% performance that will be rated for the ECG. That means, the "cos" is as important as the "play" for the ECG. The organizers of ECG think, that it is not only important to have a big costume. It's also important to present yourself and entertain the audience with your costume and skit!

you can read more about the competition on their website ^-^

If you have questions about the armors, please see my journal! I describe there everything armor related -->

I already uploaded many photos from my stage performance. Please have a look <3
