STGCC 2011 Coverage – Kipi & Jacky Panel Talk


stgcc11

During Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention 2011 few days ago, I got the chance to attend the “Cosplay: From Japan With Love” Panel Talk, which features Japanese cosplayer Kipi and Tadaaki “Jacky” Dosai from Cosmode.

The panel took place on Day 1 of STGCC 2011 for 1 hour. Kipi and Jacky discuss topics that are related to Cosplay culture and they also will answer questions that were sent by the audiences. I can’t remember much on the topics, so let’s go to the photos shall we~

People waiting for the Panel Talk to start. The seats are for those who purchased the VIP Pass. Although in the end I was able to get in with the Media Pass (Yay~)

Those who went to AFA should be familiar with Reiko. She’s back once again as the MC for most of STGCC 2011 Main Stage events.

For the Panel Talk, Kipi is cosplaying as Shana from Shakugan no Shana and Jacky as Kazuhira Miller from Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker. First time seeing Kipi live, other than through her cosplay photos on the Internet. I remember hearing people said about the Photoshop thing, but I guess they were wrong~

This is the part where Kipi was asked on how much she loved Singapore. She then went to the front of stage and starts to jump. Didn’t managed to take photo of it, but pretty entertaining~

There’s one time where the guests were asked on how many costumes do they have. Kipi has around 150 and Jacky also has the same amount, but total up can be more if he include those that he made for others. I can’t remember, but I think it was around 400?

Jacky also decided to threw away some of the unused costumes, which most felt that it’s such a waste. So in the end Jacky decided if he gets the chance to come again next year, he and Kipi will auctioned some of their unused costumes. The money will go to the charity.

This is the part where Kipi was asked about Dieting. Jacky was shocked when she mentioned that she lost 8kg just from a fluid diet in 1 week? I think it was when she needed the correct body shape to do Black Rock Shooter cosplay.

Kipi jokingly said that even though dieting can help to get the desired body shape, it doesn’t help in changing her bust size. So sometimes she had to pad up by inserting towels or more clothing. She said don’t get tricked next time~XD

They also talked about their funniest cosplay experience.

The guests then went for a group photo with the MC and Translator at the end of the panel.
