Mascot Parade 2011

Saturday, 2nd July, 2011 ~ It's been quite a while since I dress-up in costume. Most probably it was due to the fact that I was busy chasing Mother Nature, running around at nature parks & walks. My weird characters most times lead me to do things very spontaneously. My random thoughts jumping here & there, doing 1 thing & suddenly switch my attention to another subject which have no connection with the previous one. Just look at my entries here or my FaceBook wall & you will know what I mean. Heeheehee... =P
I'd given Cosfest 2011 a miss, but decided to participate in Mascot Parade 2011 as a member of Movie Mania organization.
Dressed up as a Neko-chan(KittyCat Girl), I met up with my good friend, Tasha @The Cathay. We were there in support for the "Save The World's Saddest Dolphins" campaign roadshow. After that, we went to Scape Mall to meet up with members of Movie Mania before the start of the parade.


At outside Scape Mall, we were intercepted by staffs of DBS @Shine Youth Festival & persuaded to pose for photos at their promotional booth.

Met up with Movie Mania members & took some pics with some of them in their fabulous costumes. Love the Bumblebee! And incidentally, I'm going to watch the movie later in that evening. Transformers 3 ROX! xD

Even Tasha got into the act. She told me that it was fun & might want to join me at cos-playing in the next event.

I borrowed a few props/replicas for my own pics...

Fully Armed KittyCat! xD

We walked to Orchard Central where the event starting point was. At about 5.30pm, the parade was flagged off by Mr. Yam Ah Mee, guest of honor of Shine Youth Festival.

From Orchard Central, we paraded along Orchard Road, in a semi-circular route back to Scape Mall.

Watch the parade/event in the official video below of which I appeared at 0:42 & 1:40 =P

And at the end of the parade route, I chanced upon Mr. Yam Ah Mee & quickly went up to have a pic taken with him. The reason why he wasn't facing my camera is because there were lots of official media photographers asking him to face theirs. Nonetheless, I'm very happy that I got a pic with him. Haha... xD

Note: Mr. Yam Ah Mee, as the Returning Officer for the Singapore Parliamentary General Elections 2011, shot to fame overnight, becoming an instant celebrity in quite an unexpected way. More details about him in the links above.

Greatly enjoyed Mascot Parade 2011 & hope Tasha will be able to join me at the next cos-play event. Cya!

Looking good KittyCat! Fabulous in fact, and it's cute how the gloves even have fur trimming to match the boots. That's attention to detail that is. And hey, get a load of you at 1:40 in that video. Holy moly you've got a great walk. I never saw you in motion before, but it was worth the wait. Think I rewound it about 20 times, hee hee!

Great pose for DBS in the second picture, and I also like the look of that shot with you holding a whopping big gun, with Gigi on the end. Gigi must've dangled off quite a bit of heavy weaponry over the years, so I guess she's getting pretty used to it by now. I don't know Neko-chan (which is a real pity) but I'm sure you did her justice with the outfit.

I must admit, your dressing up does interest me more than your nature posts, but that's understandable right? I mean, we have birds and stuff here in the UK already - lots of nature. But what we don't have is kitty-cats like this! Not that I've noticed anyway - and I'm pretty sure I would've remembered. So yeah, please keep those kitten ears handy and give them an outing once in a while. They were made for you!

Did not see you at 0:42 but 1:40 -however short- is worth watching. That is one proud sexy walk
