I do what I gotta do, and I did it

It has been a week since Hobbycon 2009 ended.
Not gonna say it was a total wow, but I'm very happy with the crowd and that all worked out accordingly. *yey* =3


Lots had happened because of this event.
Misunderstanding, bailing out, misjudged, accusation, gossips, rumours, lost of trust... and to keep the peace, most people chose to sit on the fence and observe.

We lose friends.
We gained friends.
We earn respect.

In the end, all the hardwork, multitasking, forking out own hard earn pocket money and sleepless nights are worth it.

Everybody had fun.
Everybody is talking about it.

And now that I have the packaged format in hand, I can't wait to organise the next Hobbycon 2010!

Our President:


Performance:

Detecke SIA

W.O.R.M

PERSONA

David Hotaru and team

Above were the performers for Hobbycon 2009.
Without them, the stage will be empty, and we'll all be screwed.
*I really can't thank them enough :)*
Oh! Paksu's band - The Maboroshi also performed on day - 2.
But I don't have the picture :(

+++++

Other than organising, BB and I were also the MC for this year.
And we both cosplayed for both days! :)

D Gray Man on the first.


And Naruto Shippuden on the Second.


Unlike the last 2 years, this year, I have to help gather, buy and in charge of the cosplay outfit and props for BB, my 2 siblings, an uncle and a cousin.
Handling the TWO sets of cosplay outfit for 6 PEOPLE was definitely one hell of a job; which I'll leave it to another day to tell.
But having my family to join and experience Hobbycon for the first time was also one of the factors that make all of this seems so worth it.
Cousin Hafeez even flew down from KL to become Lavi of D Grayman and Gaara of Naruto Shippuden.

D GrayMan Group

Naruto Shippuden Group


As expected, J-Na bagged the champion for the cosplay competition (solo category)...

Joanna Lye (Champion - Sisters of Battle from Warhammer),
Paksu Ezani (1st Runner Up - Allen Walker from DgrayMan) & Shariff (2nd Runner up - Bill of Left4Dead)


...and H-Law won the 1st place for Cosplay Competition (Group Category).

The H-Laws

If you were there, YOU know they were cool.

It was a close match nonetheless, coz everyone had put their effort in the competition.

A big congrats to you guys!


For the Mascot Design Competition, Edmond from SIA won the 1st place.

From left - Maguro Relle (2nd Place), Edmond (1st Place), Rina (One of the Judges from TDD),
Kong Pui Ling (3rd Place) and Eva (Consolation)

His mascot called Vee Vee will become Hobbycon 2010 mascot XD
So stay tuned to what Vee Vee might bring you next year ;)


Other Activities:

a) Fukuwarai (Lucky Laugh game)

Fukuwarai (BEFORE)

Fukuwarai (AFTER)

This game was actually a simple game which I improvised from the original format to fit my Day-2 outfit.
and It turned out funny XD
Everyone had fun!


b) Live Canvas Drawing (headed by TDD)


c) Gothic-Lolita-Punk (GLP) Competition (Street 2)


I've got the opportunity to be a judge for this one.
Man... who said it was easy being a judge?

"Can I choose all 5 to win?", I asked Regina
"No dear. Just final 3"
"=___="

See? I can't choose!


d) Fun filled booth and photo taking with lots of cosplayer


We're also very grateful for all the feedback, comments and suggestions given to improve Hobbycon, and we REALLY hope that more volunteers will help us in the future.

Though we have lots of ideas, but even superman and wonderwoman need help sometimes XD *We only have 2 hands*

+++++

Now that the event has ended, I'm very tempted to say (and I have so much to say) if I wanted to, but come to think of it, it's just not worth it. Plus, I had fun was quiet amuse watching people eating their own words.

Nonetheless, this event will not happen without our sponsors, contributors & performers.

Most importantly, it will never happened without the help of my 3 lovely & supportive girlfriends, Rina, Marissa and Serena.

To the committees, the volunteers (especially people like Ranald -PA/Sound Man, Ultraman-Booth Registration, Maslight, Edgar, Charles - Photographers) and other supporters, e.g. the crowd *Facebook group friends, fans & CSPian*, videographers, photographers, whoever I know and actually came to the event & share all pictures & videos *you know who you are* ... you guys are great.

I'm very sorry if I couldn't layan everyone ><" Things were very hectic @_@

THANK YOU!



See you next year!
