In the heart of Orchard Road, Singapore busy shopping district last Saturday, hundreds of costumers, cosplayers, photographers and other random people came together outside Ngee Ann City for one reason, to get as much vitamin D under the hot sun as possible. Apart from that, they are actually here to participate in Singapore’s first ever street costume parade. TK8316 checks it out.
Titled the Youth Mascot Parade, the objective is to get youths to come out and engage in wholesome outdoor activities, in this case wearing of costumes, instead of hiding at home surfing the internet whole day.
Though named as Mascot Parade whereby one usually thinks of mascot as depiction of cute animal representing an organization, there is no restrictions as to what one wants to wear, be it characters from animes, games, movies etc. Personally I feel that Pop Culture Parade sounds nicer but anyway that doesn’t really matters.

22. Check out her deviantART page for more of her pictures. She looks beautiful in normal getup as well. ^^;
To my delight, I found out later this is because female Archer recognised me from my avatar at a local cosplay forum and decided to plant a lipstick mark on my helmet. ^^;
There were a lot of other nice cosplayers but unfortunately I wasn’t able to cover everyone of them. Anyway special thanks to dice who took most of the pictures. Her blog is down so check out her flickr page instead. TK8316 will be very busy these few weeks with his Empire duties so blog updates will be slow. 😦
