CGM Night #6 was held last night at the Shibuya head office of Cospa. The location was perfect and by the time I arrived the room was already full.

These were a popular item. I don't think anyone tried to smuggle one out of the office and carry it back on the train home ^_^.

The room was just the right size for the amount of people. Although it was crowded, it made it very easy to talk with people and just “bump” into them for a chat.

Plenty of chance to swap business cards and chat about projects.

After spending so much time talking to people online it is nice to connect with a few of them face to face as well. For all those overseas who can’t make it to Japan, maybe we will have organize some events in other cities/countries as well?

    Is it me, or are some of those cosplay boys prettier than the girls? Or are some of those “girls” boys? I’m so confused.

    RT @Shibuya246: CGM Night #6 at Cospa HQ, Japan Living | Shibuya246 http://bt.io/BJQb A great time had by everyone in attendance. The one standing next to Kaname-san looks like a statue, especially in the 2nd photo, sorta like a figure in a wax musemn. How close is the cospa office ,to where your located? Kaname add all the other cosplayers were a big hit at the recent AFA09 in Singapore That sure seemed to me like a small room w/all those people inside. The illustrators name is Kurot. One Danny Choos articles showed her drawing Dannys mascot in like 8 minutes, w/just a black marker. She is quite talented, I should say.
    I used to have a Backpack that I used for one of my jobs, and it had all type of keychains attached to it. Everyone would ask it looks like your in highschool, why don’t you grow up. Some people just don’t understand.
    That organizing an event in another place or country, especially for me would be great, seeing I won’t be able to be there anytime soon.
