ColossalCon 8 Live Blog – Cosplay Contest
There was a long line that snaked outside just to get in, but the wait was actually only like 5 minutes.
Right now they’re just showing some funny pictures like the O Rly? Owl. Earlier there was some broadcast of the stage and a girl was ahaving a plushie dance to the music which helped entertain people for some time.
All these random pictures almost makes me feel like I’m in a movie theatre watching the trivia before the movie starts.
It just started. Lights go off, spotlight turns on. Sonia is the MC. Judges are Angel, Oshii (craftsmanship), Sugar, Splenda (craftsmanship).
Performance Judges – Ann, Cassie, Kikari, and Bobby.
The judges are doing a skit. It’s a Pokemon skit in which a few Pokemon are complaining about not getting used. “There’s no me in team.” ….”well, actually there is…” At the end Pikachu is chosen and it’s level is “over 9000.” The rest of the Pokemon head off.
Masquerade starts. Skits, first of which is a Sailor Moon dance with what looks to be Sailor Moon and Sailor Mars.
Skit 2. Bishonen ananymous. First is a sign with “You cannot control your fangirls.” Dr. Jekyll from Get Backers is the character on stage. There are six steps.
- You cannot control your fangirls
- Do Not read fan fiction
- I LOVE restraining orders
- Refer fangirls to otaku anonymous
- Never provide fan service
- Quit being emo
- Final corollary – act masculine
Skit 3. Titus and Yuna declare their love. It’s a duet between two people cosplaying Titus and Yuna.Wow, we just got Rickrolled. They’re doing the dance now.
Skit 4. Familty that cosplays together stays together.It’s a One Piece thing. Husband, wife, and their little child.
Skit 6 (skit 5 not here). Cool Rocks (Bleach). It’s Renji with a pre-recorded track. They just used the line “Is your name Gilette? Because you’re the best a man can get.” Steve actually made this joke earlier today around 2 PM. There’s some dancing going on, kind of disturbing.
Skit 7. Memories (Meow). It’s Ed and Al from Fullmetal Alchemist. Al wants to keep a kitty but Ed doesn’t let him.
Skit 8. Bleach in a PSA. Starts out with Kon and the Cowboy Bebop music. Urahara comes on stage and they have a talk about all the different things that you can run into. The main problem is body odor – just take a shower and use soap. Yoruichi comes on stage after Kon gives Urahara pics of Yoruichi in the shower. Soi-fong comes on stage and gets the pics of Yoruichi. Probably the funniest one so far.
Skit 9. Pyramid head is coming to town. It’s about pyramid head knicking on doors and trying to meet neighbors. State law requires that he notify people since he is an offender. It was well done.
Skit 10. Tiki went down to Kalahari. It’s a live performance with actual violinists. The guy had some trouble hitting the higher notes when playing the Mario theme. Harmonics also didn’t sound too clean from either one.
Skit 11. Devil’s Fruit Bar. It’s a One Piece skit. It’s supposed to be a commercial for “Devil’s Fruit Bar.” Makes you feel great.
Skit 12. If Bleach was made in the 50s. 50s Bleach is just as American as baseball, guns. No shirt, no shoes, no fanservice. It’s colorsafe bleach. They started singing the song for 50s Bleach, but forgot halfway through. The recovery was quick though, about 5 seconds.
Skit 13. Chocolate with Death. It’s the characters of Death Note trying to sell some chcolate. At the end they gave the MC some chocolate.
Skit 14. Nurse Joy returns. Nurse Joy comes out and has several problems such as drinking. She just took the temperature by taking a thermometer and sticking it up the pokemon’s ass. I’m not sure if she realized thatwhenever she faced away from us and bent down you could see her underwear. The electric paddles she used was Pikachu. The pokemon dies so she introduces her next show, “Nurse Joy Iron Chef.” This is a really long skit and is really starting to just drag on. There is the occasional funny moment but overall the skit is just too slow.
Skit 15. Paddeball Roy. He performed a lot of tricks with the paddleball. He’s been doing it for 5 years.
Skit 18. We have never used a Gameshark. A Pokemon trainer comes on stage with a bunch of Pokemon plushies. The game froze because of the Gameshark. “Arghhh…..I just lost the game!”
End of skits. There is now a half time show with a supposed Ramen eating contest.
The intermission showed a lot of Japanese commercials.
Now showing Utada Hikaru’s MV Traveling.
