Last weekend, July 28-29, 2007, the Phillips family headed off to the Fancy Frontier 10 comic book and cosplay convention held at National Taiwan University in Taipei.
Kaye cosplayed as a character in the manga/anime Reborn and spent most of the time with a couple of her friends. The friends were supposed to also be in costume but didn’t get theirs in time. Next cosplay, there should be a group of ’em in costume though.
This was a big event with over 33,000 people in attendance. Yes, that many folks.
See the complete gallery of images we took during the weekend, go here.
IT’S GOOD TO BE KING
A couple girls ran over to me and asked to take a photo with me. One of them demanded that I let her kiss me for the photo because I’m so "cute" for some strange reason, when asked by a pretty girl to be kissed I have this odd habit of consenting.

MOTHER KNOWS BEST
My wife, Lorraine, and my daugher, Kaye, take a breather in the hot sun of the first day of this weekend-long event.
THAT’S A LOT OF HOT SWEATY BODIES
Since he was visiting, we dragged our good friend Joshua Samuel Brown (yes, the internationally reknowned author [web]) to his first ever major cosplay event. Josh is usually as carefree and easy going as a human can be but even he found certain aspects of cosplay convention culture to be well beyond the pale.
While there were a LOT of cosplayers out there, at certain times, it seemed that the number of photographers far outnumbered the cosplayers. In fact, at times, it seemed that the photographers were moving in swarms. This was particularly true if the cosplayers happened to be beautiful women in rather . . . er . . . hot not because of the weather . . . costumes . . .
