Thank you for all your attention and participation, the first Worldwide Cosplayer Photo Journey has officially come to a fruitful ending! It pains me to announce this but all things come to an end right?
I pondered long and deep over on how to announce this but I guess being upfront is the best. Let's take a look at the pictures from the camera xD
Haha yes, they are horribly grainy except Mexico. Sadly, Malaysia and Canada’s photos didn’t develop but thankfully Riko took a backup copy with her digital camera ^^.
And here's the awesome scarf!!!!!! I must praise each participant's dedication and awesome handiwork! Look at how beautiful the scarf turned out! Here's some close up of the handiwork by each participant!
Asakura from Chile
Hiroky from Mexico
Laura from Brazil
Riko from Malaysia
Inuran from Singapore (She didn’t made the decoration though, I did xD)
I feel strangely unwilling yet relieved to end this project. And I find myself unable to articulate this entry so pardon if I sound incoherent. It feels like there’s so much I want to say and ought to say but it overwhelms me too much to make any sense out of it. Which is part of the reason why it took me so long to announce this.
Firstly, I would like to once again, thank everyone for their encouragement and enthusiasm. In an age where speeding broadband and Social Networking Sites dominate, it seemed almost miraculous that snail mail and good old negative camera would be embraced.
Secondly, I want to thank all the participants for taking part and putting both their heart and money into this project xD All your dedication shows on the scarf and looking at it makes me want to cry xD Because no matter how far you get in life (i’m still a loser =< ), to know that someone out there agrees with what you’re doing and has showed physical support, is EPIC awesome. In a time where superficial human communication and shallow love dominates, I feel touched from the bottom of my heart. I just hope all of you had fun getting yourself busy ^_^!!
Thirdly, I want to apologise for being so slow with my updates on this project. As each of the spotlight entry takes a lot of researching effort. I understand I took longer than preferred ^^;; And pardon my lousy ending entry to this project. If anyone else out there wants to do another similar project of their own please let me know, I’d love to take part xD!
Please don’t feel sad that the project has ended, maybe one day I’ll bring it back. Or someone else can *hint*. There are a few other
sinister random projects budding in my brain now so who knows, maybe something else even more wicked will come by soon =)
To end it off, the Worldwide Cosplayer Photo Journey 2010 - 2011 had been a very fruitful journey and I hope it gave everyone a chance to learn more about the beautiful countries the 7 participants came from. I know I definitely learnt a lot!
