L2P(License To Play) 2012

8th/9th Dec, 2012 ~ This year L2P(License To Play) event was held at Marina Bay Sands & Movie Mania was invited. The organizer was kind enough to provide us with a booth & primarily, we, the cos-players/costumers were there to liven up the event & attract crowd.
Prior to this event, I'd told my guy that I believe I would look good dressed up as The Punisher. He took my wish to task & created a female version of The Punisher.

Lady Punisher @L2P

As a friend of ours, Rocky(Merlin's husband) had done The Punisher before, we joined force to become Team Punishers.

It was a joy meeting cos-player/costumer friends again & making some new ones. As usual, the battle-harden veterans went around posing with each other & staging mock battles.

Great fun even posing by myself or playing a fool with air-filled instruments given away by another booth.

Same as in many events, I happily went around taking pics with visiting friends & camhogging with booth/event cuties. Even the static displays were not spare! LOL! =P

The Punisher Rides

On the last day of the event, when 2 of Movie Mania's costumers, Howie as Monkey God & Rocky as Guan Yu thought it would be fun to take a walk to the nearby casino, I decided to follow along.

WIth music player & speakers hidden under their costume blasting out loud Chinese music appropriate for their character, Monkey God & Guan Yu drew quite a bit of a crowd wherever they went. We arrived at the entrance of the casino where the staffs, was stunned, dunno what to make of it & unsure how to react. I can imagine how unsettling it can be when 2 such legendary Chinese deities appeared at their area of responsibility especially when these 2 deities together represent well-being, security, good luck, wealth & prosperity. I suppose their training did not cover the part on how to deal with such situation & sigh of relief can be heard when, after taking some photos, we decided to leave. We did the same walk twice & got the same reactions. Great Disturbance in The Force! What Fun! LOL! =P

To cap it all, after the second walk, I had a chance & fortunate encounter with the popular Mr. Yam Ah Mee who was on his way to attend an official function dressed up as 007, James Bond. He seems to recognize me, perhaps from photos taken with him during the 2011 Mascot Parade. I believe that pic was featured in People Association's newsletter. After a photo with him, I quickly informed my friends & being fans of Mr. Yam, they also wanted pics with him.
Note: The reason why I'm in the second pic again is, after taking a pic with my 2 friends, Mr. Yam insisted that I have to be in the pic too.

I'm so thrilled & happy to met the nice Mr. Yam again & to me, it's the highlight of my episode in the event. Another thrilling thing was the discovery that I was featured, together with MovieMania cos-players/costumers, in a promotion poster for L2P & in their newsletter too. Am featured in 3 pics as if I'm some cos-play celebrity. LOL! =P

Museum of Horrors III, 2012

18th ~ 31st Oct, 2012 - The yearly Museum of Horrors, which was managed by Movie Mania, were back again at Scape for 3rd year running. However, due to my busy full-time work schedules, I did not help much. Was there only for 5 days, helping to mann the front desk. Didn't have much pics to show coz my guy who was involved in managing the project was too busy to be my photographer.

@Museum of Horrors with Janice Fion.

This year's theme at Museum of Horrors III was Zombies! According to the brief story line, a scientist, while trying to cure his zombie-bitten wife, went mad & accidentally let loose a deadly zombie virus he was researching. All the staff in his research facility, including his daughter, were infected, triggering a Zombie OutBreak!

Zombies Holocaust!

Therefore, beside being just a pretty face manning the front desk, I'd a more important task of preventing any zombies from escaping the venue by bashing their heads in with a sledge hammer! Was a heavy responsibility to put on such slim little shoulder. If you're not a zombie yet, you have me to thanks for! LOL! =P

Zombie Basher!

Not all the credit to me, mind you. Helping me is one of the best zombie killer team in business. The team is so good that they even have 2 or 3 tame & trained zombies to track & kill other zombies. =P

Some of the casts & crews of MoH III.

I wasn't around when 2 ministers of parliament visited the Museum of Horrors, but am glad I was there to welcome a group of the cute kitty cat girls! More fun than any minister if you ask me! =P

The Meow Gang @Museum of Horrors.

As usual, at this time of the year, Movie Mania will be engaged or invited for costumes appearances by a number of clubs to liven up their Halloween party. This year, it was Helipad at Central @Clarke Quay & Avalon @Marina Bay Sands.

My Halloween costume this year? The SheDevil Demonia who wears Chanel & drove Ferrari. Hahahaaa *evil laughter... =P

On the first day, I was in my soldier costume, the second day as a Valkyrie & on the third day, back to being a soldier girl.

The cos-play contest kicked off on the second day with the anime category. The participants pull out all the stops & the level of standard of their costumes was very high, giving the judges a hard time deciding the winners.

Cos-play competition, anime characters category.

Winners of the top 3 prizes.

Rocky as Guan Yu won the first prize for the anime characters category. He's very good, very dedicated to cos-playing & as one of the judges put it, Rocky brings out the spirit of the characters he portrayed perfectly. We were so happy for him. He & his wife, Merlin are good friends of my guy & me. Our congratulations to Rocky!

Beside helping out with the cos-play competition, what were my tasks as an event girl @Cos X? Help promote Movie Mania & their future events, hanging around with cos-players/costumers & basically, running around cam-hogging! LOL! =P

On the third day is the cos-play competition for the game characters category & amazingly, the level of standard for costumes went up another notch!

Contestants trying to impress the judges. 

Two of the biggest costumes at the contest, an Armored Core robot & the Mistress of Pain from the game, Diablo III.

When Mistress of Pain made her appearance, the amazed looks with the 'wow' of the crowd(me included) & the judges were apparent. The handiwork done on that costume was awesome! And also, the contestant wearing that fabulous costume did really carry it off very well. No doubting who will be the winner here.

Contestants waiting for the results.

Consolation prize winners.

3rd & 2nd prize winners.

And the 1st prize goes to...

So obvious that Mistress of Pain will walk away with the grand prize & not satisfying with that even, she tried to charm away one of the judges by biting him on the neck. =P

An impromptus occurrence at the event was when Movie Mania cos-players/costumers & cos-play contestants were invited by the M1 booth next to us to join them in an Oppa Gangnam Style dance performance. We weren't prepared, but tried as best as we could.

15th Sept, 2012 ~ Just a week after TGX 12/Cos X, Movie Mania was engaged to do a costumes appearance by the organizer for the M1 4G Launch @Paragon & they didn't told us that they wanted us to do the Oppa Gangnam Style dance again. They must had being impressed by our crowd-drawing Oppa Gangnam Style dance performance at TGX 12/Cos X the previous week. =P
