TOKYO GAME SHOW 2014 MOMENT + JAPAN TRIP!

It's been long time since Tokyo Game Show 2014 was held
I miss this moment so much.. So i think, i'm going to blog about this,
before i forgot.

TGS.jpg
Tokyo Game Show [東京ゲームショウ], commonly known as TGS, is a video game expo / convention held annually in Makuhari Messe [幕張メッセ], in Chiba, Japan. Every September.
It is the largest game event in the world. It is presented by the Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association (CESA) and Nikkei Business Publications, Inc. The main focus of the show is on Japanese games, but some international video game developers use it to showcase upcoming releases/related hardware. Tokyo Game Show allows the general public to attend during the final two days.

In TGS, there is always a have event schedule for Cosplay Collection Night @TGS presented by CureCos and official cosplay guest will be perform at that event.
The official cosplay guest will be choosen by Tokyo Game Show Cosplay Project by Negibose KONDO
Negibose KONDO choose the representative cosplayer from 7 countries (Indonesia, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, China, Thailand, Vietnam)
TOKYO GAME SHOW COSPLAY PROJECT will hold the contest for selecting the representative cosplayer at each country.


So! Lets begin this Story~
in 2014 I was chosen to be Indonesia Guest Representative for TOKYO GAME SHOW 2014, together with other 6 contry Korea [아자/AZA], Laos [Nanako Lolineko], Malaysia [斯斯 Chelses yuan], China [澪绫/Ling Ling], Thailand [Valxonia], Vietnam [Code]

well, i don't expect i can be choosen. because i even don't know TGSCP was held in Indonesia.
it's really suprised me.

This story starts from when i attended CLAS:H Grand Final 21 June 2014 and participate on Single Cosplay. CLAS:H is one of so many big cosplay event in Indonesia. i participate on this event using my Lastest Cosplay Costume Teostra/Empress SP Female Gunner Armor from Monster Hunter Frontier Generations

TGSCC.jpg
This is my entry for Participate for Cosplay Single taken at Cosplay Single Photo Booth, but i don't event know This is also entry for TGS, well when last time i see this photo the sentence is 'Grand Final' not 'Tokyo Game Show'

at CLAS:H i got 'Singles Cosplay Favorite Award' from Ryan Anggoro, the 1 of 16 Guest and Judges at CLAS:H
10488265_691416050895316_3692899513475368945_n.jpg
There also 15 another cosplayer who also got 'Singles Cosplay Favorite Award'

That just the begining, because i got 'Singles Cosplay Favorite Award' so i go to TGS? nope...thats not the way to make me become the Guest Representative for TGS. being choosen for TGS is 100% 'LUCKY'

1 month after CLAS:H was held, Tokyo Game Show Cosplay Project uploaded my entry together with 19 lucky cosplayer who choosen by Negibose KONDO. all the participant are don't know nothing about this. CLAS:H aslo didn't tell us about this, so i wait until the day winner announcement on 4 August 2014
and i really shock! the announcement is I become the Guest representative from Indonesia
10527279_341044486060122_1225212643876165279_n.jpg
how i become guest representative? i have no idea about how they choose it.. until now that's why i called this 'LUCKY'

after the announcement CLAS:H and TGSCP contact me about what i should prepare and what i should know
i'm still shock.. happy.. also confused... i don't know what i should i do.. what i'm gonna do
Go to TGS was my first time go to outside Indonesia.. i never go overseas before..
Specially.. this is i go to Japan! the country that i deamed of!
i really cant imagine, i still don't believed it on that time.. even i ask so many same question such as
"DO I REALLY BECOME THE GUEST REPRESENTATIVE???"
maybe CLAS:H and TGSCP committee already bored of that question.

then i try to faced the reality that i really go to TGS.
then i prepare everything.. my first Japan Visa, Passport, and national ID cards,
well when the announcement i'm still 16 years old, so i don't have anything other my student ID card, and i need to wait until 12 August to start make all of it.
TGS was held at 20-21 September 2014 and i just start to make my visa, passport and ID card on 12 August 2014??! it is a very short time, but Thanks God i made it, and there's no problem about it until i got my flight ticket to japan from TGSCP comittee. but i have bad news, my phone old phone [Samsung Galaxy Note II] was stolen when i go to school, just view days before i go to japan.I ended up buy a new phone [Asus Zenfone 5]. when talk about TGS, i'm always remember my old phone.. so sad..

and my journey go to TGS2014 Begin!

TGS WALL!!!

Seeing TGS HALL 1 from Above!

well it's a disaster for me... Teostra costume is a complicated, troublesome costume. I even can't walk well because of the armor at my boots. KANAME☆ Onii-chan and Jacky Dosai -san always help me to take away my leg armor that always tied with chain from my skirt when i walk. but i ended up broke it to make me walk well and i'm not become the one who always walk behind and make everyone wait, i wanna throw that armor but well stupidly i bring back that 'broken' armor back to Indonesia.

anyway, after we walk around TGS, the time finally come!
we must to performance at CCN, but because we got the 2nd round, so we still can watch the 1st round of CCN
