Chingay Parade 2010

Chingay is annual street and floats parade which takes place during the Chinese New Year period in Singapore. Participants includes performers from all over Asia and also from a galaxy far far away.

The 2 days event was held on 19 and 20th of Feb. There’s a small carnival to entertain the young and old in the afternoon before the actual parade at night. As per recent trend, it has become a norm for any big events to use cosplay as a selling point to attract the crowd. Which is fine in this case since almost everyone taking part in the parade are in costumes. Ok move along now.


2. The lovely meido with tonight’s dinner.


3. You must be stranded on a deserted island if you haven’t heard of Hexlord aka Usagi-san? Kudos to him for this pic.


4. Note to self: Get nekomini before the next troop. Nyan~


5. This cute Miku walked over and asked me why am I so dirty? I must think of more reasons as I seem to be getting this question a lot lately. ^^;


6. The cute meido again. What’s she holding in her hands?


7. Hmm… Looks like she got tired of cooking and cleaning so decided to go for some target practice.


8. Lightning right? Notice anything different about yours truly? :3c


9. First ever female main character in a Final Fantasy game right?

    Gorgeous cosplay girls ^^
    But troopers are the best! Love picture #14

    Poor sand troopers… always the dirtiest. Ungrateful, but well, if it tickles the curiousity of beautiful ladies, that’s a pretty good point ^^

    Nice pics. ^^ Saw u guys on TV the other day, but it was plain weird seeing Imperial troops marching down the road to brazilian samba music. I was half-expecting u guys to break into samba dances suddenly. ^^;

  11. Blowfish says:
