Hello Friends~

so here my lil report about the OTAKU FESTIVAL 2012 in Bucharest (Romania) www.otakufestival.com
with some silly pictures and my random comments with a lot of IRONY ;D LOL

Thusday, 24th May:
I arrived at the Airport in the afternoon and the organization team picked me up from there :D. The hotel room was directly next to the con. It was still some time till Elffi's plane would arrive, so Christian (organization team member) and I took a walk in a nearby park. I got so distracted by wild DOGS, BIRDS and CATS everywhere *-*! I could pet a cute wild kitty <3 awww~~
The we went to the airport to pick up Elffi. We were standing there pretty long and I got bored and annoyed XD;....so the first thing I did after he came out of the baggage claim room, was kicking his leg and asking why the hell that took so long ;O;~~~  
We haven't seen each other since WCS, so that really heartwarming kick was the nicest greeting I could get in mind *LOL*.

Friday, 25th May:
Since the con started on Saturday, we went to the Bucharest city center to see the main city ^.^. They really have some pretty and Paris-like looking buildings there. Also the food is nice and cheap *-* and riding taxis there is even more than cheap haha~
In the evening, dinner with the organization team.

Saturday, 26th May:
First convention day, YOSH!
The convention was pretty small, compared to German cons, but it was nice to have enough space to walk XD. Also we were really surprised how many people could speak English. Specially I was also very surprised how many people could answer me in perfect German XD! That was pretty awesome!!


So here you see a screen at the entrance of the convention building. It always changed the image.
1.: Cosplay Gen volume 5 cover
2.: Official Otaku Festival poster
3.: My advertisement poster <3
4.: Ellfi's advertisement poster
5.: And Licorne's poster, our guest from Hungary who came together with Ruki and Raffi, two very cute cosplay girls from Hungary :heart:


We got free convention shirts *_*


Everywhere in the main hall, there were the illustration photos of the cosplayers, who have been featured in Cosplay Gen so far.


Here you see the dearler's room in the main hall.


(Ruki, Elffi, me, Licorne and Raffi)
I love this photo together with the Hungarian girls crew <3!! awww~
Also when I'm definitely too unsexy and too much covered in fabrics in that shot XD;;;

Well, on this day, there was the solo cosplay competition and also the preliminary for the Romanian EuroCosplay selection.
After an individual costume judging in a separate room, everybody went on stage. Here you can see the stage...

Small but with nice light effects. Also the sound was wonderful and the technical support made no mistakes ;D! Also we had the really BEST cosplay show moderator everrrr XDDDDD! He was so dang funny LOL~

We really enjoyed the show, and after a kinda hard discussion (sry dear other judges, that I am always so hard to deal with LOL), we found a winner <3! Congratulations to Paula!
Miku Hatsune (Vocaloid)


A very special event, that I loved a lot on the convention, was the 3D Projection convert of Miku feat. Gumi *_____*

You can see and example for a Gumi song in a video here ----> www.flickr.com/photos/53062635… WATCH IT!!!


Sunday, 27th May:
This day, Elffi and I had a panel together about Cosplay in Germany, Finland, WCS, ECG and props LOL...yeah all that in one panel! We are awesome. We were KINDA unprepared *cough* coz we were so lazy in the evenings to make a proper presentation and decided to make everything COOL and SPONTANEOUS *_*.
Well, I hope we could be entertaining and informative.


Here you see great professor Elffi talking about DesuCon XD


Somehow the bunny ears and the pink hair do not let me look as intelligent as Mr. beard next to me ._. ...

After our panel, the Hungarian Crew also made a cool presentation about their conventions and Cosplay in Hungary.

Then on the same day, there was the group cosplay contest.
Again, Elffi and I could be part of the judging team.


Of course, cosplay is serious business! And we are the MOST serious judges everrrrrrrr~ no doubt LOL

The group contest was super funny XD~ I laughed a lot.

Also I was kinda active as a photographer myself this time. I made some photo shootings with the cosplayers in Romania.
Including...
Claudia, the cutest thing everrr! Licorne, the sexiness from Hungary! Andreea, cool and sexy in the same time! Daria and Maria, the colorful pair and and and and and ;D
Aqua (Kingdom Hearts) Sheryl Nome (Macross Frontier) Shura (Ao no Exorcist) Luka & Miku (Vocaloid)

you can see all photos in my gallery here ---->>> www.flickr.com/photos/53062635…

sadly, the Hungarian crew had to leave early on Sunday ;O;~....I totally hope to meet this awesome people again :heart:!


Monday, 28th May:
OMFG LE RAIN OF ROOM ;O;~
Sadly, the weather was all bad during our trip, but Monday was the WORST!
Elffi and I wanted to go to the zoo, but that was now canceled by rain ._. ...
So we were super glad, that Shinju and friends picked us up to go out for lunch and later also for cake *_*. We had wonderful conversations and she was so nice to take care of us.

well here a photo from us three together <3


And party on Monday night XD!

Tuesday, 29th May:
we had to go back home ._. .... *sniff*



Well, that was a kinds long report, right? I hope it had enough photos XD;;;;
So I had a wonderful time in Romania! The organization team was wonderful and took really good care of us :heart:~! Thanks to Cris, Ruxi and all the other awesome people!!! Also I had a lot of fun to travel together with my idiot king *lol*~
I really hope that I can come back some day.
Thanks to all kind cosplayers who talked to us and thanks to all my patient models ;D.
And of course a special CHUUUUUUU~ to my new Romania WAIFU Paula :heart:!
  • Drinking: tea (again and again and again XD)

The cosplays look reaally good. :o And you look like you are having a lot of fun in the photos. Too bad the weather wasn't good.

Did you took photos of Bucharestitself, or just the con? :O

Wa! Glad to hear you liked Romania :3 Unfortunately, I saw you only on Saturday :3 But you were just like a doll. So cute ~
And Oh my God! The photo with the dearler's room in the main hall! I can't believe! I am that ugly- face girl with glasses! Oh, god! I'm so honoured =))
Congratulations to Paula! I saw her performing! I also like Grell! So funny!
I'm sorry you didn't enjoy a more lovely weather... But i think if you pet that cute kitten, you did enough. It's usual to see wild dogs and cats here.
I hope you liked it enough to come again. I saw Boom Service representation online. So funny and awesome! Great decisions, serious judges.
