Finally posting this report!! I have difficulties spare my time and push myself to do blogging..it needs commitment and MOOD of course..So here I am..(at rear view) sitting on the judges panel with other pretty judges, Jia (middle) and Silvia Siantar (far right). The same mall I judged for Cosplay back at 2012, but this time is more challenging: the contestant are ranging from high school and universities, even from outside Surabaya-Bandung and Solo with the idiosyncrasy to express their inner mine into fabrics.

Eco Futuristic as the theme of the competition refers to sustainability and green design to the environment but in a FUN way taking shape only at the overall look of the dress, just to fill up the spectacle nothing meaningful-as long as the dress made of 60% waste and of 40% new materials- as a result many of the contestant use plastic wrap, compact disc, which is so last year and even safety pins-that are all completely new. Plastic and pins are not even sustainable for the environment. BUT it is fun to see colors, cuts, fabrics within their design.

This is the only contestant I remember who they are, simply coz they’re from Visual Communication Design-my department. The way they think is practical and aesthetic at the same time by ‘patchworking’ all the elements into a ready to wear dress they don’t have to sew besides the beautiful Prezi presentation they do.

I like this one to..cute pinky dress with a ferris wheel on the front, reminded me of Katy Perry. To bad the wheel couldn't be rotated fast automatically, it was too heavy so they did manually.
