Jawa Pos Deteksi-Con 2K8 (4): The Un-Cut Stories

In every stage performance and events like this, we always wish to see the best performances, photos and stories on the newspaper. We rarely see the real backstage situation. The most that we can see is ‘behind the scene’ shots. In this last part of Jawa Pos Deteksi-Con, I’d like to upload some photos that can give the readers an almost real backstage situation.

You can see a beautiful Cinderella tied up her sneakers on AEC booth. She was one of hundreds of representatives from many schools around Surabaya. She looked cute though with her hidden sneakers!

You can also see a girl with kimono and … Advertisements all over her. Well, it could be the sponsors for her school mading, or it was just a fun. For me, it was very eye-catching…

And, there was Captain Hook on a make-up session… He wasn’t ready for the show before he looked fierce enough (my guess!)

Anyway, it was a huge show with thousands of students who participated in the events or the on-lookers. It was a success event and I believe those students are waiting for the next round next year.

Keep it up!

Jawa Pos Deteksi-Con 2K8 (3): Mob Movement

Everyday in our AEC booth, we can see the students presenting their schools in variety of ways. They dressed up, wearing unique costumes or making noises throughout the hallway. This action known as Mob Movement. It is a movement organized by numbers of people to do something in order to gain their goals and it could be negative or positive. In Det-Con event, the goal is positive, i.e. to win some trophies and predicates for their schools.

I thought to myself that I’d be embarrassed if I have to perform such a show or dress up like they did. I never imagined that I would be able to dress up as a mermaid or wizardry. Those students were brave enough. They might be shy if they had to perform individually, but since they did it as a group, they wouldn’t be that embarrassed. Their individual identity wouldn’t be known. They would be identified as a group who was representing their schools.

I had to admit that I appreciated their effort to give the best for their schools. They ignored themselves as an individual and perform well as a group. If many of other students outside this event could perform the same positive mob movement, we can reduce the numbers of students fights or the numbers of delinquency done by students.

The Making of Mading on the spot

The Making of Mading on the spot

Here in Surabaya, JawaPos Deteksi-Con is a big name for young people who want to express their ability and creativity in journalistic. There were hundreds of students who came and visited Surabaya Supermall Convention Centre (SSCC) daily. I had my shift on Saturday and Sunday evening. I had a great time watching those bunches of students who work hard to be the winner of many competitions, such as: young journalist, best photographer, best mading and OZ challenge. The prizes are awesome, one of them is one-week homestay in Australia (I wish I could win this prize…)

This year’s theme is Fairy Tales. So, everything is about Fairy Tales. I saw many madings with Peter Pan and Princess as the background. But some of them had been very creative by making their own Cookies house, Kitchen or Indonesian fairy tales theme.
