for this year, the management and organizers has decided a new rule for cosplayers.
and so No ticket dont cosplay policy was strictly implemented and Megatrade hall 2
was opened for them. and  for the two day(s) event, you would observe that
there are less cosplayers outside the hall. so the event is spacious for mallshoppers
and for toy collectors inside the event restrooms are not crowded for the first time.
the guards & marshalls were implementing the policy and all cosplayers obliged.
there was no photobooth set-up wihin vicinity,so there were no trash within the
vicinity unlike before, no one was littering.

The cosplay community is alive and thriving, it is propelled forward by amazing
animes, comics, movies, video games, and all kinds of media. and this time
Cosplayers can be found roaming around to show  the art of cosplay and the
incredibly positive community surrounding it. and this year, for the first time,
the halls of Megatrade 2 where opened for them.(& their photographer friends)

look at some pictures of the incredibly creative cosplay costumes that people have
made and created loyal cosplay fans.

To be honest, posting up and updating photos is a long tiring process.
but I love to share photos that really inspires the beauty and passion of cosplays.

by the way, for COSPLAYERS, DC Comics needs your help for setting a world record
called The DC Comics Super Hero World Record Event – to take place on April 17, 2015
