MadeInAsia (MIA) Happenings Part 2
Here I am again continuing to post some of my gathered pictures from the most awaited convention MadeInAsia, not just in the capital city Brussels but also in the whole country of Belgium.
As I have posted my photos in instagram account (the first account) which actually a travellers account since I am a traveller who wants to share my travel photo through instagram.
Then decided to create a new account only for this event only for my cosplays, animes, manga’s pictures, I ended up deleting my posts from my first account and linking it to the new account since it’s a travel theme the pics and contents are kinda imbalance.
Story of my Japanese Costume for MadeInAsia
My Cosplayer Photography
Going back to instagram subject I personally met “Genji” the cosplayer at Made in Asia on the second day.
I found his account in instagram via common likes and he posted that he’ll come over at MIA on weekends with his genji attire. I was really excited I even send him a message that I’ll search for him just to take his pics (I’m being so confident lol)
The day came and so I have a pic of him solo and a pic of me with him as expected.
Other Stunning Cosplayers
Eventually I’ve met a lot of cosplayers around the area, took a lot of photos of them from
- Disney Princesses to
- Groups like Dragonball Z,
- Zelda, Diablo,
- One Piece, Naruto,
- Bleach, Pokemon,
- Overwatch group and even just random cosplayers who are together.
I’ve discovered that some of the cosplayers who attended at MadeinAsia were from other countries.
They couldn’t speak french nor Flemish either I did know since I’ve approached them asking for a pic, there were some in Germany, Netherlands and France.
I’m glad to share my simple photos of this cosplayers who really did a great job on their presentation. They gave a fantastic presence and patience during those 3 days, really a Bravo to them all.
Not to mention their kindness to pose every time people ask to take pictures.
Thanks also to Made in Asia’s organizers who made this event happened without them I won’t have such precious pictures like this.
As for my favorite online game Overwatch, My day will not be complete without them.
To be honest when I saw Overwatch cosplayers from long distance I get to run after and take pictures of them without hesitating. I would ask them kindly if I can take some pics.
Coolest DVA Cosplayer
I remember on my DVa encounter at the restaurant/food section of MIA she was actually doing a queue to buy food.I tap on her shoulder while mentioning her name (DvaDva) and ask her for a picture. How nice of her saying yes and posed for me (happy) I’m so grateful.
She was so cool with her perfect costume like a real DVa in real world, won’t mention her name but she’s really friendly.
I searched her account on instagram then added and tagged her on my pics. I asked her if she’s playing Overwatch game and she said yes she does and she plays DVa too.
What great cosplayer, It’s good to hear when cosplayers do play or watch the characters that they are portraying. it’s very important to know who and what is your anime role is.
Gender bend Cosplayers
I had also an opportunity of meeting this two gender bend cosplayers Junkrat and Roadhog.
They look so cool and so powerful, Junkrat was perfect her attire and attitude fits her role she got that look of junkrat. that smile, that crazy relax look,
While Roadhog is little bit intimidating really creepy, he is one of the chars from overwatch that I’m afraid of. In terms of physical look only, this Roadhog is a killer her eyes.
The way she stands she’s exceptional, I had a great time with them.
After walking around the perimeter I got to bump with this group of overwatch cosplayers,
They were almost complete except
- Sombra, and Zenyatta,
They are difficult to produce in terms of costumes and costly I guess. Especially Reinhardt and Winston this giants are the hardest to create. From that group I saw my little twin the “cancer” Mei, She’s my favorite little Chinese scientist on game.
I can play her all day but she can’t be my main I cannot leave Zarya and Zenyatta (laughing) all Z like being Zen mode like me.
Mei and Mccree
Let’s admit that Mei is really good char to play, from this cosplayer Mei. I was surprised seeing her with this other skin my fave pink one, and holding her cutie drone she’s so amazing.
Mccree gender bend is top she seized it staring at her face and pose its like “high noon” got to give a thumps up for this pretty cowboy.
Mercy on her Valkyr skin
Finally the woman of the hour, the woman who saves all, the savior, the angel, the queen of life. the on who gives strength and life, the healer in game. “Mercy”
I didn’t imagine to see her here, she is very precious very fragile. But here she is not on her normal skin but on her splendid Valkyr look she is shining like a star. I’ll give her 10 out of 10 perfect score.
Sometimes in cosplay event you cannot evade the situation were 2 or 3 cosplayers do the same cosplay role. this often happens that’s the competition, like in MIA there were 3 DVAs 2Soldiers 2Widowmakers.
I have to say all of them did their best Soldier76 here stands out from the other one. with his white hair although height wasn’t that match. However with the other Soldier with grey/white hair he lacks of props with still good the way he present himself.
Among the DVAs no need to ask who’s the best (they are all) from Widow makers I would honestly pick the first cause we have chatted and spend a little time with her more.
Tracer and Widowmaker
Feeling so lucky that day I have all of them, but a surprised at the end cause I saw Lucio alone in the corner.
I ran after him and took a pic (ye hey) at least I got Lucio, I have all of overwatch cosplayers. Well not all of their pictures individually, that day was super difficult to take photos of this guys.
They are getting so much attention that I can’t even approach them for one on one picture (quite sad) but positive side is I get to have a pictures of them yes.
Other Favourite Cosplayers
My Favorite Widowmaker in MadInAsia
Luckily on the first day of MIA we’ve met this legendary Overwatch cosplayer Widow maker.
She was really outstanding with her violet stunning costume, her hair, make up, props. Her body really fits widow maker role.
I didn’t manage to get a picture of her only (crying) so disappointed on me not having my camera with me on the first day.
Despite of my attire I really do want to take pictures a lot, she gave us her facebook account and when I did search her.
I was amazed by her videos and pics, how she does all her costumes by herself.
Cut them painted them, sewed them and using alternative material to make it all looks good.
Thank you for reading my blog, hopefully you did enjoyed it!
Let me thanks all the cosplayers who did a wonderful job “chapeau” to all of them. See you next time!
