Capital of Cosplay 2014 at Bugis+

I attended the Capital of Cosplay event at Bugis+ to support some of my cosplayer friends and was pleased to find out that this year's event was movie-themed. Even though this was a relatively smaller event than most of the cosplay conventions in Singapore, the organisers were able to invite some prominent guests, including special guest Liui Aquino from the Philippines. Aquino is well-known for his portrayal of Hiccup from the How To Train Your Dragon films. The Village's Hope collective from Thailand was also on hand to demonstrate special effects makeup techniques and there were singing performances and stage games. Also invited was Diana de Mol, a costumer hailing from the Netherlands and now based in Malaysia who has worked on the elaborate angel wings for the Victoria's Secret fashion shows. She cosplayed as Wasp at this event but unfortunately couldn't bring along the wings she made as they were too large. There was a mini Marvel team, comprising Captain America, Black Widow, Bucky, Iron Man and Pepper Potts.

"Chimichangas? Where?!" 

"Conceal, don't feel"

Heroic pose!

Aunty Shirley, everyone's favourite 67-year-old cosplayer!

Wotta Tweest!

Bad Toothless! Down, boy!

Natasha...give the shield back.


Pepper is not pleased that Natasha is stealing everyone's stuff.

Ele-vader. You can blame my friend Gwen for coming up with the idea.

I was able to grab this photo of Cap and Widow "planning their honeymoon to New Jersey" before we were chased out of the EpiCentre Apple store because photography is not allowed.
