Looking around in the afternoon, taking my breaks from working at the Stardome Observatory stall in hall number three, where the celebrities singing takes place around the corner of that great big hall. I would say that the cosplay are pretty impressive this year, everyone made their cosplay costume very resource fully that I have to admire for their creativity imagination.
This year, I’ve notice there’s more Stormtroopers than last year. several from during the times of Emperor Palpatine, the clone wars era, to the time of Palpatine’s deputy of Darth Vader’s time, of Tie troopers, Sand stormtroopers, and the ordinary stormtroopers. But lets to say there was a balancing out there of a hand full of Master Jed’s, younglings, and Padawns to save the day.
This year also brings around to another type of Cosplay, cosplaying in military uniforms with body armour with airsoft weapons and battle gear. It’s interesting that day to see military cosplay, from the last previous years that only reserve for the Stargate fans, whom dress like SG1.
There’s been a lot of gaming, manga, anime fanasty cosplay, lately. Days before I went to Armageddon, I went back to my old haunts to check out a gamming store in Queen Street, right next to another gaming store Vagaboard that I traditionally go too. On that checking out I’ve notice some Japanese Manga and Anime mechanise. I’ve notice one wall shelf was completely empty out. That dedicate wall was for anime cosplay costume. Which just points out that there’s a new trend and New Zealand is catching up on with rigth next to Comic Con also too with Wonder Con
As of next years cosplay….. we’ll see what happens next!
