Lucca 2010: cosplay

lucca 2010

You must think about one thing: all the time involved in the making of the costumes. It is a hard work of needle and sewing thread, a dressmaking work by improvised milliner, long as our miniature projects. I can see impressive realisations, an high quality that astonish.

lucca 2010

The contest was in the open. A long queue to show your costume and your play over the stage. People have wi-fi microphones and musical bases, contact lens and hour of preparation in front of a mirror. It seems something more serious and professional than a simple passing. People here is what they want to be and not what they are in normal life.

This area was free access and while the show went on, others were making their show in the street.

I think he cannot pass through a port. He had a personal mechanic to set his removable parts…

TigerMask! Directly from the Tiger Lair!

A spiderwoman. Dangerous I think.

I saw two Jesus Christ in Lucca. Not only mystic visions, but double mystic visions!

A tea with Alice. They brought the teapot and the table from home…

On Sunday, because of the rain, the contest went on inside an ancient palace, but I was inside the games pavilion all the day.

Tomorrow more interesting cosplay…

Lucca 2010: sexy models

There is a type of models only for men, more than trains or tanks: undressed girls! I prefer the real ones, but sometimes is pleasant to see the forms of a beautiful girl around you. Men are sexually attracted by view, so even a plastic little girl is something that is attractive. Here a gallery of Japanese models about sensual girls, viewed in Lucca.

Lucca 2010: models

lucca 2010Inside Lucca Games there were spaces for a lot of models, as action figures, vinyl toys, Japanese robots, miniatures and so on…
There were even some greens like the chtuluian Christ on the left. A lot were of fantasy type (I never understand why one must sculpt a fake knight when there are real and historical knights more interesting; study history, is more fun than fiction!) but there were even different things made of green stuff and even a big Ork walker (I don’t remember the name of the class chose by GW for this robot) for Warhammer 40000, made with various bits and a pandoro (typical Italian Christmas cake) box from Bauli for its body! Orkish but good inside…

There were even some people who painted during the convention. Masters of paints, obviously.

Japan is the country of robots and nice gadgets.

Go go go, Go Nagai! Mazinga!

And the evergreen Gundam.

Lucca 2010: Ma.K.

Do you know Ma.K.s? They are a Japanese series of models about military armours and vehicles of near future with a WWII German touch. A participation game was set with Ma.K.s during a recent Salute, a big effort, they are not very cheap 1/20 models. I don’t know why in Lucca there was a models contest about Ma.K.s, but you can see a lot of people know them…

Lucca 2010: videogames

I thought that videogames were something not so interesting in Lucca. Instead they were the big thing in games pavilion! Almost half of the space were dedicated to videogames and seeing the long and beautiful legs from miniskirts of the hostesses you could understand where the money is in games field.

There was space for consoles and pcs, for the WII with its remote control and for the Playstation with its new remote control. A lot of games were on but I’m not so informed about trends and titles.

lucca 2010 lucca 2010

Before Lucca I didn’t know the 3D for the videogames. I thought that this could be a unnecessary element, but there was a little 20 seats cinema managed by Asus with promos on 3D videogames. They were terrific! It is absolutely a new playing experience, when you have saw this potential you cannot return back! I suppose we find all new titles in 3D format, it is great even for static games. I saw a Civilisation V ad in the 3D area, it is a causality or there is other? The weird thing was to see the people in front of monitors with their technological glasses: it is just an alienating view, but with this glasses all seemed a sci-fi flick about aliens who control the world with subliminal visions…

lucca 2010

A lot of videogames to try, but I have only saw other people doing this. There was even a videogame where you and your friends must replicate a band, and another one where you must dance according to the moves on the screen and a sensor gave you points if you are good in this. Like Lara Croft, but this is another story…

New barbarians

new barbarians

For our government, for our politicians, for our (all types of) mafias, this is only a heap of stones. But these walls are our heritage. Schola armaturarum is no more. New barbarians are in Pompeii, new barbarians are in Italy.

Lucca 2010: more on games

lucca 2010
Other things on games in Lucca. Well, I must admit I spent almost 50euro on dices, but this hand is Diego’s hand! He spent the same, I think. There were Chessex and Q-workshop, so you could have a large choice of killer dices to put inside your fists. I bought strange dices to throw in my future tournaments, and one type is very beautiful and romantic, with little leafs carved on all the faces. So now I have a mug full of D6 dices. The sad thing is that Chessex have a weird change for the dollar: 1euro = 1dollar. Hey, this is damn wrong! The right is 1euro = 1.40 dollars! You found this only after we bought a lot of dices. Your is not an honest price mr. Chessex!

lucca 2010

There was the historical corner. Well, not a corner but a large space of tables with miniatures. In the vastness of the place this space was very little indeed…

Here you can see Impetus and on the right upper corner Sfiligoi and Laliscia.

lucca 2010

And here Laliscia while entertains a family with his new game about American Civil War. Too many people, too much rain, and this family wanted some guy to babysit their children… It is all for free. I hope one of these children a day will be a player…
On the left the new publications from Ganesha!

lucca 2010

Some people entertains other children, but dressed like some Napoleonic era soldier.

lucca 2010

A la guerre is tested by Diego. He likes big battles with a lot of little guys made of lead.
