Mini Fiesta of Comical Proportion

Once again, Comic Fiesta will have a smaller event in the form of Comic Fiesta Mini on my island. Unlike last year’s though, CFMini will be held in Penang Times Square which is just a few blocks away from my den!

Unlike last time, there will be an admission charge of RM 10 per day for entrance, which I think is fair since we have quite a number of guest cosplayers this time around. Ticketing and further info are available here.

CFMini will begin on the 27th and ends on the 28th of September, of which I’ve fine-tuned my schedule in order to attend both days in full.

タマちゃん屋!鍵屋!

Braving through the hazy heat of all-year-long mid-summer last weekend, I rushed towards the site as soon as I got myself ready after my RL job. Oh yes, it’s Bon Odori Matsuri once again!

There was another event at another part of the island, a cosplay event featuring guest appearance of Aza Miyuko (An ex-member of Spiral Cats and a cosplay guest during AFAMY12), which sadly fell around the same time period as Bon Odori. Had to abandon the former in favour of securing a good parking space (For the whole night) on earlier hours to avoid the incoming crowd at the latter’s…

I was an invitee of Konatsu, a local ACG group full of like-minded folks and similarly enthusiastic comrades, to join them at their picnic site under a designated canopy given to them by the organisers since many of them are part of the dance performance for the day.

It was the mid of the a hot day when I reached my destination. Only a few early Konatsu birds were already there, chatting and hammering away their sumafo playing Love Live! School Idol Festival. XDc

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=

Procuration: Gifts from a Fiesta

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

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…
