YuneOh was All Over the Cosplay Carnival
Once again, the SMX Convention Center played host to the Cosplay Carnival! The Cosplay Carnival was held at Function Hall 5 of the SMX and hundreds of cosplayers, otakus, and enthusiasts came over for two days of cosplay madness from March 25 to 26, 2017! Of course the YuneOh team was there live and gave full coverage of the event. You can always trust to find us where the most happening events are in the country!
YuneOh Covers the Event Spotlights
1. The Cosplayers
Of course the stars of the show were none other than the loyal cosplayers themselves! The Cosplay Carnival is a chance for people to take on the guise of their favorite anime, movie, and comic book characters for a day or two! Young kids, teens, millenials, and even adults flocked to the SMX in their garb and once they hit the floor, they were no longer their former selves, they are now heroes and witches and robots and Deadpools! Everyone looked great! And of course we took photos of some of our favorite ones!
2. Events and Contests
Another thing that is fun about the Cosplay Carnival 2017 are the contests! Numerous booths provide endless opportunities of engagement and entertainment that pits you against a challenge and gives you prizes! There was a balancing challenge, a Yoshinoya noodle eating challenge, and even a fun trivia quiz show! But the booth that caught my eye was none other than the Ghost in the Shell booth! There were 3 humanoid targets in a make-shift shooting range. Each participant had a Nerf gun with four bullets. The challenge was to shoot the targets and make sure you make your shot go through a small 2-inch round hole. People were lining up and trying their best, and there was no way I would lose here! So I joined the line, took the gun, made my aim…and on my second shot…voila! I hit the target! And for my effort, I was awarded with this awesome Ghost in the Shell movie poster!
3. The Venue
The SMX Convention Center continues to be the hub for all things hobbies and games in the country. It is the first choice for some of the biggest hobby events during the year. The Asia Pop Comic Con, the Toycon, and the Cosplay Carnival all call the SMX Convention Center their home. The venue is big and spacious, there are ample facilities and huge restrooms to change costumes in. They even added more shops and food stores inside the center for that quick foodie fix! And the entire place is connected to the Mall of Asia via walkway for easy access to the main mall! And my favorite part, the wide space at the basement parking!
