Convention Report: 4th TAGCOM 
27th-Feb-2010 10:04 pm
Nozomu: despair
 Event: 4th TAGCOM Toys and Hobbies Convention (Day one)
Location: Robinson's Place Manila, Midtown Atrium
Went as: Nozomu Itoshiki from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

This was my first convention of the year, and I haven't cosplayed (not outside of school, anyway) for months so I was looking forward for my debut-ing of Zetsubou-sensei, sans the equally neurotic schoolgirls (which, I have to admit, I should bring along the next time I do this character, ahahaha). Ahem... Anyway, I heard that the cosplay competition for TAGCOM was on Day 2, but since I couldn't attend on Day 2 (since I have far more important things to do like studying for my two major exams next week), I decided to go to Day 1 instead, with or without cosplayers present... Just to enjoy myself before the university starts shoving crap down my mouth.

So when I got there, the convention just opened, and there was a glaring lack of cosplayers. I can count a couple vocaloids and some rozen maidens hanging around... But nothing substantial... So I figured I'd wait for more of them to arrive before I change. So I hung around a bookstore reading yaoi vampire knight manga, then I had lunch at a chinese restaurant, before going to the nearest bathroom to change. The problem is, they decided to lock all the spare cubicles for some sick, twisted reason... So it took quite a bit before I got changed.

...And so it seemed that my camera is acting up. I don't know what its problem is, but whenever I take a picture, horizontal lines appear on the display. So it would seem that taking pictures is a bit out of the question. But I didn't let that stop me.

So I went around, bumped into a few friends, and purchased some merchandise. Most notably a pin with Nozomu's face on it and the word "ZETSUBOUSHITA!", which I found cute and fitting. I so wanted to buy a figma, or at least a nendroid, but I didn't have the cash to spare. Some of the nendroids were upwards of Php300, while the figmas were a staggering Php1500 (that's a week and a half's allowance already!). Anyway, I was a tad surprised at the amount of photo ops I got, considering most people don't watch Sayonara Zatsubou Sensei. It was amusing... Haha. But when I do see someone who knows the series who's aiming their camera at me, I do the despair pose. ahahaha.

Yeah, so over-all, I had fun. Next convention will be in exactly 31 days, the 3rd Philippine Cosplay Convention!

Ah, so you were Zetsubou-sensei! You probably got a survey form from one of my groupmates. We're studying cosplay for Field Methods in Psychology.

I was supposed to cosplay while handing out surveys, but it was not meant to be, alas. -_-

yes. I was indeed asked to answer an epic survey (people found me writing cute, and decided to take pictures of me while doing so... haha).

As usual, hitsuzen does not permit us to meet. XD

XD Zetsubou-sensei writing a suicide note?

No, I was there. XDDDD I just had no idea you'd be cosplaying, and my groupmate got to you first.
