It´s that time again folks! A short report from Desucon: Cosplay & Japan 2013!
This is the second time I have been to Desucon: Cospay in Oslo, some might remember my first visit last year. At this time around my experience at the event would be a bit different. First of all, I had the experience from last year´s Desucon: Cosplay and Desucon 8 this summer, so I felt more prepared. Second, this year I was actually in the official event program with a short presentation of the Mangapolis Anime Program at Films from the South 2013 and also to talk a bit about the recently announced Mangapolis Comic.
Obviously, Desucon being Desucon, I had a whale of a time this year as well! The people were just as friendly and just as awesome as last year, if not even more so. My presentation went swimmingly and I had a great time hanging out in the “Chillrom” during both the drawing competitions.
This year I was accompanied by Frank Nam Kha Nguyễn, that was armed with his camera and as trigger-happy as humanly possible. All photos in this post are all shot by Frank.
Above is a photo of the “Chillrom” where the drawing competitions took place and where I, for that reason, spent a lot of my time at Desucon: Cosplay. I did not win any of the competitions btw.
The fun thing about Cosplay Speed Dating is that you must stay in character, so better hope you are not paired up with your arch nemesis!
Some of all the awesome merchandise available at some of the many stands.
One of the main events at Desucon: Cosplay is of course the Desucon Cosplay Championship where the winner will go on to compete in EuroCosplay 2014.
At Desu.no you can see even more photos from Desucon: Cosplay and even more costumes to admire. Perhaps you will be inspired to join the Cosplay Championship next year!
