Thanks so much!
It will be my first time with Chiko and my first visit in Belgium!
I cannot wait to meet all the amazing Cosplayers and Belgium Anime otakus!
And I feel so honored to be able to see the first Belgium World Cosplay Preliminary ever!
So looking forward to it!:)
See you there!
I really need to say, that the World Cosplay Summit was a bit chaotic, because the schedule for the next day were missing or people just didn’t know what to do.
But still it was a life changing and great experience. I experienced so many awesome events, could meet so many great and talented people and had so many moments, which I want to remember forever.
I never expected to make so many friends and to have so much fun in these 2 weeks.
A lot of people told me it is stressful. For me only the championship itself was stressful. You had so much time at the other days and events, could take your time and feel the spirit of all the people who shares the same passion as you. Actually I rested and ate more than the last 7 months before the WCS…
|One of my most precious memories.
I never met so many Anime fans at once in my life and I really would recommend everyone, who loves Cosplay as me to go there, to meet the people and to feel the spirit of this community.
I wasn’t sure if my efforts would pay off. I am not a really good Cosplayer, nor a very good performer. I just gave my best in order not to regret it. These 7 months were very hard, where I pushed myself to my limits and barely met any friends or family. I know that other could do much better, but I am satisfied, because I know I gave my best. I don’t regret anything and just to experience this support during the end of the 1rst stage, it was worth it! Every single minute I spent into this costume, skit and preparations. Everything it was worth it.
|Thanks Eriko chan and Yuuka chan for all your work!
It was great and I am so happy and grateful for this experience.
I really miss the people and want to go back. I will try my best to meet them again, to have fun with them again and to create more great memories with them.
I am also grateful to have Chiko as my partner, because I never could imagine experiencing this life changing event with someone else as her.
I also was so grateful how much effort Patrick, Iris, Mo and Laura spent just in order to make the trip as comfortable as possible for us. Thank you so much for this support!
|Thanks Chiko for being an awesome partner!
|Thanks Patrick for all your hard work!
I don’t know if I did a good job as representative, but I honestly don’t care. I gave my best, I am happy with what I could achieve, it was more than I ever expected. And I also nevery expected to gain so much personally.
I am just so so grateful for this.
Thank you! And thank you for all your support!
It really kept me going and I nearly cried when I red all your messages and Tweets after the WCS. Thank you so much for being with us and for thinking about us. I never though that you guys would support me so much!
This was one of my best time in my life.
Thank you for being part of it!
After a very short night we wake up, got some breakfast and got into the Lobby to check out at 10am.
Because they forgot to tell the participants to check out at 10 am, the students where running around at about 9:45 am, knocking at the doors of the representatives and panicking, because most of them were still sleeping. XD Poor students, but it was kind of funny situation.
The first bus was supposed to leave at 10, but you can guess that it was impossible.
The elevator was packed and we waited a long time just to get into the elevator to the lobby.
But because we were in the B block bus, we still hat time till 11:30 am till departure to the special tour (we got that information at about 10:30 am XD).
|In the bus
So we sent our luggage’s to the next hotels and waited in the Lobby.
At about 11:30 am we departed with the bus and made a small stop at the sea.
This stop wasn’t planned. Because the A Block bus departed too late, they arrived too late at the “Soba making experience”. It was planned, that after A block finished their soba making the B block bus would arrive and the next people would start making their own noodles.
This is why we had a stop in order to catch up with the delay and were sitting around at an air-conditioned iceshop. Actually it was really fun! We all got some Kakigori and spent some great time with each other.
|Kakigori party *o*
After getting back into the bus, we arrived at the “Sagami soba making” place and met the other teams from the A bus, made a small group picture and went up to the Soba making place. At first we got a small introduction, washed our hands, put on our apron and cap, watched an introduction video and started to stretch the dough and cut it. Of course we got filmed in this beautiful outfit. XD
It was really fun although Chiko and I were very bad at cutting slim Soba noodles. XD
Afterwards we went to the restaurant side and got our selfmade noodles with some Tempura and Sushi. It was really fun and Team Denmark gave me all their noodles.
After getting our lunch we went back to the bus, went shopping in a super market and drove to a traditional Ryokan near to the beach. We got our room numbers beforehand and I was so lucky to get a room with the both Brazilian girls.
The Ryokan was in the middle of nothing (but you still could get a LOT of Pokemon XD) with a lot of nice traditional Japanese rooms. They also had a very nice Onsen with an outdoor part for both genders.
|In our room with the Brazilian girls in our Yukatas.
After arriving we could choose our Yukatas for the stay and brought our whole stuff to the rooms, changed and went back to a meeting hall where we made some group pictures.
Afterwards we met in the dining hall were we got some really tasty traditional Japanese course dinner.
At every row you could find a sign with your countries name. So we searched for Germany and sat down with our cute Omotenashi student Yuuka chan and our awesome organizers Patrick, Iris, Mo and Laura.
After some warm words we got our food, which was SO tasty! They also had Tempura and a whole lobster. They also arranged a small Karaoke contest where I took part.
After eating I sang a song and had a lot of fun with the other participants during Karaoke.
We also made a lot of pictures and exchanged some presents with our cute students Yuuka chan and Eriko chan. To make a picture with this hat is a tradition of the WCS.
After finishing our food we went to the Onsen and relaxed a bit.
It was a really fun time with all the girls at the outdoor Onsen.
After the Onsen we had some party and spent our last time together.
At the next day we needed to say bye bye. And I really cried a lot. Because I was so sad to say good bye. I know that I can somehow meet the European friends again, but I wasn’t sure how it was with the people from the other countries. I will give my best in order to meet them again and to spend more time with them. It could make so many friends, who I really started to love. I am still missing them a lot.
