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=

Sisterly Love… Winter Sonata

February the 14th, the Saint Valentine’s Day. A day where couples of the world celebrate. Also celebrated by forever-arones all around as the Singles Awareness Day. XDc

The 15th day of the 1st month of the Lunar Year also falls on the same day. Called the 元宵/十五晚 (Yuan Xiao/Chap Goh Meh), which is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day. Such coincidence! :3c

A Collection of Kantai Musume

Last year the world was caught in the blast of a new form of moe (Considering by many as the new Touhou Project…) that is the fleet management browser game called Kantai Collection, or Kancolle for short. =w=

Spanning across all types of mediums and forms, the various bishoujo rendition of World War era battleships charmed the likes of the otaku scene, driving its popularity to the max especially in recent Moons.

Merchandise of these lovely Kanmusu, most of them voiced by high-profile seiyuu veterans no less, are popping out like mushrooms ever since.

The recent announcements of a Kancolle anime which will be directed by the same person who did the Nanoha series, as well as a PlayStation Vita version of the game, certainly further accelerates its new-found fame, much to the delight of all Admirals (Or Teitoku aka T, affectionately referred to one another by the players of the game itself…).

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.

Continuing from the post-con report from yesterday, today let’s have a look at them displays that were spread across the halls of Culture Japan Convention.
