Note: image-heavy post ahoy!
I’ve been a regular visitor to the Ennichisai at Blok M, Jakarta since 2012. So, this is my third year at Ennichisai! But, this year, I’m not doing any cosplaying because the venue is jam-packed with people (a rough estimate of over 20K people) and moving around in costume is hard as fuck. So, this year, enjoy some of the shoots I’ve managed to get! These are the best cosplayers based on my personal preferences.
And please, before anyone starts butting in and saying that the CLAS:H cosplayers are awesome, I’d like to say that I wasn’t there to watch CLAS:H because I had a cold and left early on the first day. I came back the second day and only stayed until 4 pm because my cold started worsening. And maneuvering that kind of crowd while having a cold and burning under the searing rays? Be my guest.
First off is this cute nekomimi schoolgirl. I’d just say it’s an original character. And it turns out she’s also a crowd favorite! I mean, why shouldn’t she be? She’s cute!
And number two on the list is a team of DOTA 2 heroes! Hell yeah! Finally someone decides to cosplay as the heroes of DOTA 2! There’s Sven, Juggernaut, Clockwerk, and Rubick. Their armor’s well-crafted and looks just like the game!
And third is my favorite character from SAO, Scilica the Dragon Tamer! She was the only Scilica around, and she did an amazing job with her costume! Even the Fina dragon plushie is well-done! So cute and lovely!
That’s the top three in my list! Here’s more assorted characters who I thought were awesome.
And that wraps up the cosplays at Ennichisai 2014! Really, every year, the events stay the same so there’s no reason to come back every year except to hunt photos of cosplayers.
