As mentioned in the previous post, Petit Fancy 8 was held at National Taiwan University’s campus over the weekend, here is the picture heavy post that I promised. David Reid wrote a post about the event over the weekend, as did Darren Melrose on his new WP-powered blog. My anime phase passed after Cowboy Bebop aired on the Cartoon Network, so I have no idea who most of these characters are.
Rei Ayanami – Neon Genesis Evangelion
I got to the event early and I didn’t know where on campus it was taking place. Luckily, I was able to follow a young woman carrying a giant sickle from the MRT station to the event.
A couple from Ikki Tousen [Battle Vixens]
The above picture begs the question: Did you carry that on the MRT?
Yuna – Final Fantasy X and X-2
Someone on flickr thought that these people took Naruto and did a dōjinshi out of it. I didn’t know what that was until I Google’d it… I guess I’m not very hip.
As I mentioned, I tried out Adobe Lightroom on this batch of photos. I’m quite impressed with the software so far. The flexibility you have with the program and shooting RAW is unbelievable. I’ve barely scratched the surface with Lightroom.
The photographers at this event acted quite a bit differently than photographers at the auto or computer shows. At this event, photographers thanked the cosplayers after photographing them and said, “excuse me” if they bumped into me while shooting.
The next event takes place on NTU’s campus on July 26th and 27th.
