Costume Fun at a Summer Paradise

Continuing my adventure at Penang Anime Matsuri 2018, I wandered around the event halls looking to feast my eyes upon the superior crafts and outfits adorned on the cosplayers themselves.

Thanks to the empty area just between the entrance and the exhibition halls, cosplayers and photogs alike can gather at their own leisure for on-site photo sessions and random visitor encounters asking for selfies…

Two Days at a Summer Paradise

Penang Anime Matsuri 2018 was held last weekend at the Spice Convention Centre, instead of the dimly lit mini stadium that is Spice Arena last year.

Due to how ACG events across my country being carbon-copies of one another for years, I’ve already stop attending all of them in favour of only PAM due to its more unique contents, contents that I’m more interested with. =w=

The other only ACG event I visit annually is AFA at Singapore…

Preparing for a Summer Paradise

Due to my recent busy schedule and not-so-uplifting dailies, I’ve neglected on the news on Penang Anime Matsuri 2018. 

However I’m still excited that the day has finally come, for me to attend this event which falls on tomorrow!

Tama-chan is quite ready for the festival too, testing out her newest outfit, the 衝撃の学生服 from Fate/Extella… So glad her outfit made it in time, as the delay on the seamstress side kind of putting a minor stress on my end… ^^;

It’s also unfortunate that Tama-chan doesn’t have the proper hairstyle for this outfit as seen in the game itself, I’ll put that on the future upgrade list for her…

Tama-chan and I will pay a visit to one of booth owned by an acquaintance of mine within the exhibition halls, where she will stay there for a duration of time while I go snooping around the venue.

Do pay her visit if you happen to be there! See you all in a night’s sleep!

Illuminating a Celestial Being

Finally, the moment we’ve been waiting for, to release the GN Particles within Gundam Exia!

As mentioned in earlier posts, instead of directly purchasing the Lighting Model which costs an arm and a leg (Literally Exia’s arm and leg, as it costs about one-third more of Exia basic kit’s pricing… :3c), I opted to get the regular release of the plastic model kit.

The L.E.D. unit used for the gunpla was bought separately from a third-party company called Mo Jiang Hun (MJH), of which the pricing is about one-seventh of the basic kit’s pricing…

While not as eye-catching as in the dark, activating the light-up gimmick in a bright area still manages to produce enough illumination as the L.E.D. themselves are quite powerful.

Arming a Celestial Being

Aside from the main Mobile Suit itself, Exia comes with a number of weaponry and accessories, including a huge display stand similar to that of Unicorn Gundam’s but fully clad in a much more complex design of various mechanical details.

This display stand is probably the most important accessory for Exia, as it houses the L.E.D. unit and wiring needed to fully realise the light-up gimmick.
