So back to the topic... Ozine Fest 2014 was held on April 25-27 at SMX Convention Center. My schedule only permitted me to attend the third day.
I have attended a lot of events in the past but I gotta say, I got intimidated when I saw how long the queue was! Woah!
Since there was no way I could possibly get in, I took photos of my friends as we stayed at the second floor and waited for the right time to barge in. For this event, I was invited by my friends to be Xion and be part of their Kingdom Hearts cosplay group! Yay! Xion suits me perfectly and donning the costume is no problem. And it was the first time for me to join a cosplay group, as well. So I was very excited! Yay!

It was about 3PM when the crowd thinned up a bit and only then was I able to get tickets. It was a sigh of relief for me! Yes, finally!

Surprisingly, it wasn't that much crowded inside the venue. Sure, there were lots of attendees but there was still space to move about. And so, I roamed and took photos of cosplayers once more...

All in all, it was a truly fun event. While I attend Ozine Fest every year, this was my first time as part of a cosplay group. Acting out dioramas from the various scenes in the game was an amazing experience. It is like being the character for real. Here's to hoping that I can attend more events as a group next time. Though I would need to obtain more costumes…Ah well~ Guess I just gotta find a way to make more time. Aja! Fighting!
