oo Emotions as well OTL

AFA 2009 Day 1 - Regional Cosplay Competion

Yeah 00 Emotions won both the special prize and grand prize. I feel that at least the special prize should go to the Indonesia team, just look at their costume, it’s so detail. Somehow just feel that the 00 Emotion team is not good enough to win both prizes, their skit was passable in my opionion, the costume was good but when I look at both The Endless Illution and 00 Emotions team costume together, the The Endless Illution ones stands out more.
