Japan Touch Haru & Geek Touch 2016 – Lyon EuroExpo
Japan Touch Haru & Geek Touch 2016 is a 2 day event held in Lyon EuroExpo starting from 9 April 2016.
It is an exposition where Cosplayers & Guests can find numerous stands related to Japan or geek universes. Also, Some Shows are done during all the day starting from 11a.m. Last but not least, The organizers had set up the “Internet place” where Youtubers and other Internet Stars can promote their work and interact with people and time to time there are signing sessions.
The organisation is quite good. A lot of inspection at the entrances for Cosplayers and guests. This is something comforting to avoid further problems. But there were some complains of some Cosplayers when they were not allowed to use their gadgets because security thought it was suspicious. Unfortunately there was no Scan System to check inside gadgets.
Inside, everything was clear with signs and guidance. Staff was welcoming and trying their best to control these massive guests.
We were there as guests also, we couldn’t have the Press Pass in time but it’s good to experience that.
We’ve found many Japanese and Anime Culture related stands. Some of them buying stuff like figurines, hats, T-shirts or even parts of Cosplays.
Other stands are exposing their detailed work. It’s amazing how people are patient and precise in their works you really feel in their products the fruit of their passion. As an example the fight of lord of the rings is modeled through hand-made figurines It’s really spectacular.
There were also some games to entertain people as card games, Quidditch and many other gaming test stands. There was a lot of fun especially with the shout casters animating the games.
Behind the exposition the were also a part for Shows where Cosplayers can show off their talent and their cosplays. Also there were some activities as Quizz about Anime, Dance and little scripts ..
Finally and the best parts! The Cosplayers were really amazing! the quality was as expected, even if there were some trolls but it was fun. Some cosplays are spectacular and really detailed you can’t miss them it’s something I’m really proud of to assist in this event to see the level of cosplaying here. I would have interviewed some cosplayers but they were so busy in shooting; maybe next time. I forgot there were a lot of free hug and free kiss It was also remarkable.
The event was really good simple and awesome. The level of cosplaying is impressive I would like to congratulate everyone who has done a cosplay. Also, special thanks to the staff and security to ensure the smooth running of the event.
