Last weekend, a medium-sized, two-day otaku event was held in Penang Times Square, attracting many comrades and clueless public for a visit since entry is free of charge! ^_^
Cosplay Invasion III was organised by collaborations of many like-minded groups and features guests such as illustrator/cosplayer Shirahane Nao-sensei aka DMYO-sensei, cosplayer Stayxxxx and cosplayer Onnies.
Wait… DMYO-sensei cosplays!? Isn’t DMYO-sensei the one behind those lovely illustrations of Danny Choo’s Suenaga Mirai?
Oh yes, I was quite surprised too when I saw her in Hatsune Miku cosplay (You can catch a glimpse at her just behind Stayxxxx’s Hatsune Mikuo here in this piccie, which I haven’t realised it was her at the time of the shot…) during my brief visit… =w=
「Welcome to the special End-of-Year and Happy New Year special programme!」
「この番組は、ユナモンご主人様とオタクールチャーの坂、ご覧のスポンサーの提供でお送りします… ^0^ 」
Continuing from earlier post on my experience in Comic Fiesta 2013, this time let’s have a brief view on the wonderful girls and boys of the doll variety.
There are a number of them turning up during the event, many tagged along with their visiting parents.
Of course Tama-chan paid a visit to the halls too, although only for Day 01.
She stayed back to guard our hotel room for the next day due to severe fatigue.
Anime Festival Asia 2013 maybe over, but there’s still a social assembly left to attend on the day after… the usual Post AFA gathering of Culture Japan Night.
Held at the Kallang Theatre near the Stadium MRT station identical to last year, it was more of a Culture Japan Noon as the event started at roughly 1500 hours until 2000 hours of the day.
As a follow-up to yesterday’s gallery of them various figure displays in Culture Japan Convention, I’ve mentioned about figures owners sharing the display booth with us doll owners of musume of any genre and sizes, no?
Furthermore, the space is titled Dolls and Figures Booth… XDc Therefore, let’s have a look at them lovelies gracing the event!
For stage events and commercial booths and shenanigans, please refer to the post-con report posted a couple of nights ago… :3c
While limited in numbers, dolls do take up a large portion of the display space (Usually 60 cm in height) when compared to your average scaled figures and such (Except Three-A’s Metal Gear REX. That behemoth is enormous!).
A local ACG event was held during the last weekend, spanning across the 25th and 26th of May. ^_^
Dubbed the Moe-Party Cosplay Workshop III, it’s a small workshop event or something, at least according to my own pal for many years, Donny Choo-san!
Incidentally, it was he who had invited me over as I wasn’t aware of the event itself. The surprise when I was told of it dat time! 0_0
Anyway due to strict schedule I was only be able to attend Day 02 of the event, missing all the on-stage fun on Day 01…
Another year ends, and another new year takes its place!
Tama-chan and Kotama-chan, readying themselves by the balcony of my den, eagerly awaits the obligatory fireworks at the strike of 0000 in the mid night…
The calm before the
storm fireworks! ^_~
Just a few minutes left until the btoom! ^0^
It’s that time of the year again, the magical period when innocent and pure children awaits their promised presents from the man in red.
Altho the actual day itself falls on the day after tomorrow, it is the Eve (which is… today!) that everyone’s excited about with feast-ful gatherings, family reunions, lovers intimacy and such… XDc
A small fact: today is also unofficially known as KFC Day to the Japanese as a majority of them will opt to Zerg-rush their nearby outlets for bucketful of finger lickin’ fried chickens (Turkeys are too expensive to afford there, same situation where I live… ^_~).
To avoid confusion to the gigantic Tama-chan, from now on I shall dub this Caster aka Tamamo no Mae, Kotama-chan! XDc
In memories of a certain Dollfie Dream… Not! XDc
Many thanks to Yukino-chan’s papa, Tama-chan was invited to one of the biggest gathering of all her kind she’d ever experienced.
Bad news doesn’t seem to give up its chase, I blame my special Otaku Jinx “perk”.
Tama-chan is beyond not happy to learn of the latest news of her chibi imouto… D:
Yesternight, I’ve received a rather shocking news in the form of a single e-mail…
Tama-chan is not too happy to learn that her new imouto will be late… D:
A childhood dream comes true in just a couple of weeks time at your cinema near you!!
Just a friendly reminder to would-be kitsune hunters out there…
Note: the transparent kimono she wear above is of a separate product by Azone…
Secure your foxy now before it’s too late, kon kon!
Many thanks to a couple of comrades who gave Goshujin-sama a heads-up on the news itself…
Held on the day after the end of AFA11, Danny Choo invites all comrades together to enjoy, network or mingle with one another…
Also known to most as CGM (Consumer Generated Media) Night or even AFA Day 04, Culture Japan Night is a gathering or sorts organised by Danny Choo for all comrades to interact with one another, exchanging contacts and ideas or even forming absolute alliances… XDc
The gathering starts on 3 in the evening and lasts until 2100 hours, at the AKB48 Café…
Last Anime Festival Asia 2010, Kareshi Kanojyo no Mise (A popular local hobby store specialises in anime merchandise and gifts) loaned a part of their display booth to visiting Musume-tachi, drawing the attention of curious crowd…
Since Tama-chan arrival, Tama-chan has been eager to join the rest of them musume-tachi on display this time around in AFA11, but the plan was backfired when rumours of KKnM no longer sponsoring a DD booth this year surfaced earlier this Earth Cycle…
Just as Tama-chan was about to give up, Goshujin-sama’s comrade (an Imperial InnovaDDo) shone a blinding light of hope upon the withered shippo of Tama-chan: The DD Display Booth is a go!
Uwaa~! Long time no acquisitions! Unlimited Installment Works have really taken a toll on my figure/Gunpla collections, but it is worth it as the last phase has come to a close now… =3c
POed a trio of seasons back, I’ve finally got my hands on the Hot Toys 1/6 Movie Masterpiece of my most favourite Marvel superhero: the Iron-Man Mk VI after many push backs and delays! ^w^
Warning: The following 4koma may contain tragic ending, viewer discresion is advised… =3
Ever since I adopted Horo-chan many moons ago, her shippo’s really bothers me to this day…
The fact that the design of her tail is to attach to her rear via wearing an ugly piece of pantsu… ^^;
The most wallet-draining figure in my arsenal has finally arrived to me earlier this week! ^_^
PO placed with Tokyo Hunter (Incidentally a fellow countryman… :Dc) since the 1st moon of the Earth cycle, this Limited Action Figure Collection (LAFC) Ranka Lee (Macross Frontier) Stage Dress Version was a joint collaboration between Hobby Japan and Megahouse (Meaning you can only PO her thru the Japanese magazine AND only in Japan) and was slated to be release in end of June but was postponed to a month later… ^^;
Thanks to the effort and willingness of Joseph aka Tokyo Hunter to follow my request, Ranka-chan was spared the harsh handling by the Postal Dudes on my island, for they are known to trash and mistreat all my previous daughters (Hold-ups and kidnappings… DX)… 0_0
Anyways, it’s time to bestow my newest daughter with my magic touch… XDc
Ever since the viewing of the first movie adaptation of Marvel superhero Iron Man years ago, the awesome mechanical design that is Iron Man caught my visual eyes almost instantaneously…
Imagine my surprise when Hot Toys unveiled their 1/6 Movie Masterpiece of Iron Man Mark III back then!
However, due to my priority on Gunpla and 1/12 action figures (FigNendo), I’ve been fighting the temptation to get one of these fine but ultimately expensive figures (Especially the silver bling-bling-ness that is the Mark II…)… But no longer…
It’s over now… >,< My wallet that is… Hot Toys finally announced their Iron Mark VI, incidentally my most favourite of the bunch! I must get me a piece!
