III-rd Invasion of a Cosplaying Event

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=

Another Rumour of AFA14

Outta no where, another set of dates were spotted on a random online site, thanks to diligent eyes of a certain comrade.

AFA14_Teaser_01

Denouncing the earlier speculation of a possible a 5-day event, looks like AFA14 will only run on its usual 3-day period. 

Goodness gracious my poor feet will be saved… XDc

Procuration: Gifts from a Fiesta

You don’t expect me to come home from an ACG event empty-handed, do you? XDc

CF13_Gifts_01

Unlike past trips, I didn’t put any of my monetary reserves for usage at all during my roaming of the halls. =w= Many of the figures and stuff I want I’ve already gotten them from prior events and/or online shopping, and most of the doujin stuffs are not to my flavour at all.

Except the Kancolle’s Kongou button badge. But they were sold out when I realised of their existence. orz

However I still got my hands on a number of acquisitions, all but one of them freebies from the event halls…

Masquerade: Invasion of Cosplay Fiesta

It’s finally the time for what you’ve been waiting for: piccies of lovely and sexy cosplays I acquired from during my roaming hours in Comic Fiesta.

Have a relaxing Rilakkuma relaxing at the side of the hall and the lovely kitsunemimi Coffy, the mascot of Comic Fiesta, as an entrée for the post. XDc

CF13_Cosplay_01CF13_Cosplay_02

Many comrades have referred to CF as Cosplay Fiesta nowadays due to it being more cosplayers than comics at all.

I must say I do agree with the sentiment: most doujin stuff I saw are of merchandise and artwork variety instead of manga/booklet. That and the halls are practically fully packed with cosplayers. =w=

Jointed Children: Attack on Daughters

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.

CF13_Dolls_01

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.

Event Days: Miniaturisation of a Comic Market

いよいよイベントの時間ですね.

Rose from slumber very early in the morning and taking a ride in our chartered bus, me and the rest of my trip mates were transported to our destination, effectively eliminating the disastrous experience I had the day before.

CF13_Exhibits_01

Even though there’s still some time away from the opening, there were already a gathering of human hordes in and around the building. www 

I’ve managed to sneak into the halls before the actual opening hours. This is the only time my lens isn’t hindered by the crowds so I can take the time to line up my shots to a degree. :3c

Day Zero: Calm Before the Storm

Tagging along with members of the Los Gospel Cosplay Club/Konatsu/KH last week, I’ve paid a visit to one of the largest ACG event I’ve ever experienced these past few years in the region.

Truly Anime Festival Asia cannot compare to its sheer scale although the latter has the advantage of special seiyuu and anime industry guests to pay a visit!

It was also my first ever trip to a Comic Fiesta, out of its many years of annual occurrence.

CF13_Day_00_01

Departed on the morning of last Friday, I rode the (Chartered by our group) bus on a long road trip towards our destination, which lasts for several hours amongst them winding roads and rolling hills.

Had fun mingling and getting to know new comrades I’ve met on the bus while all of us enjoying a Mikupa concert along the way. XDc

Caught this sound asleep neko during one of the break time at a rest stop during the long road trip to the event city. www

A Merry Comical Fiesta

After experiencing the much smaller-in-scale ACG event earlier this year appropriately named Comic Fiesta Mini on my island, my body is lady for one of the largest (Of the region), full-fledged gathering of Anime, Manga and Games in one place.

CF13_Main

Hitching a ride along with members of Los Gospel Cosplay Club, this will be my first time paying a visit to this decade old otaku tradition of my country. :3c

Acquisitions of AFA13

You don’t expect me to go on for an Anime Festival Asia 2013 trip without any loot of my own, do you? w

Unlike earlier years, most of my acquisition this time around are mostly apparel and merchandise, along with a single tiny figure. :P 

AFA13_Loots_01

Got three T-Shirts in order to expand my library of anime related wardrobe, incidentally all of them are white in base. w

Two of them are from the doujin circle Tomodachi T-Shirts (As per the name of their circle, specialised in anime T-Shirts) while another one is from Culture Japan Booth. w

Cultural Night After AFA13

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.

AFA13_CJN_01

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.

Cosplays of AFA13

As promised previously, the very post you’ve been waiting for from Anime Festival Asia 2013: costume plays!

AFA13_Cosplayers_01

Day 1 saw little of them cosplayers, but on Day 2 and 3 a throng of them came and occupied them halls setting up small bubbles of photog space all over the place. w

Hub of Creations of AFA13

Breaking away from the usual commercial booths and display, there’s an area within Anime Festival Asia 2013 dedicated towards the talents and fandom of them anime and manga, resulting in the doujinshi infested Creators Hub.

AFA13_Doujinshi_01

Official merchandise alone won’t satiate most otaku’s appetite, thus the third parties will see through that and fill in the emptiness. w

More Halls of AFA13

Continuing from the last post on them halls and displays, let’s have a look at the rest of them cool stuffs happened during Anime Festival Asia 2013

AFA13_Halls_111

One of the featured anime in the event is Love Live! School Idol Project, an anime similar to Idolm@ster.

For the uninitiated, the premise of the series is about nine girls trying to prevent the closure of their beloved school by becoming an amateur idol group amongst many competing rival groups, striving to promote their own school, in order to increase the student applications to the said school. w

The Halls of AFA13

Last weekend, I’ve made a trip towards Suntec Convention Centre to pay a visit to the annual Anime Festival Asia 2013!

AFA13_Halls_01

It’s only been a year since my last visit to the place, but it seems that the usual route (From the City Hall MRT station to Suntec) has taken a new identity, underwent renovations while I am stuck on my island for the year.

Managed to briefly lost myself in the shopping mall labyrinths, good thing I’ve already researched the route the day before.

Oh well off to AFA we go!
