Cosplay Expo 2005 was a large cosplay event that took place in Tokyo Dome City. The cosplayers were both outside in the Tokyo Dome City area and inside the Prism Hall.

I went on 7/18 to watch the Idol Stage.

The Idol Stage took place on a small and low stage inside the Prism Hall. There was no special lighting for the stage, but it was fairly bright.

Photos allowed. They didn't say anything about videos, so maybe it would have been ok to take videos. On 7/18, Cutie Pai even allowed photos during their stage. I was surprised, as my friend said that they didn't allow photos the previous day.

Makio had braces.

SAI sang 5 songs, and had one of the longer stages. They sang "Party Night" (Di Gi Charat), "Happy Material" (Negima), "Believe" (One Piece), "Super Love" (Koi Koi 7), and "Sekai ha Pi-Po-". All of the SAI girls were wearing yukata. The girls that participated were: Emiri, Yuuki Makoto, Sakura Fumi, Nishikawa Makoto, Kohara Yui, and Ruka.

For the Mint Ranger stage, only Kayasaki Ryouko (blue) and Imari Kiyoa (red) were there. There is supposed to be one more girl (green). I heard all three appeared the previous day.

In the middle of the live, there was a present corner where they gave away signature boards of the performers. During this corner, Sagami Jun came as an assistant.

I left when Sakuragawa Himeko was singing, as I had another event in the evening.
