Let’s have a look at the doujin, the cosers and the dolls today…


Creators Hub

The doujin area was filled with great variety of great illustrations and various random stuff for sale, and was totally jam-packed with eager buyers and curious onlookers, making the venue hard to navigate and incredibly suffocating…

As always, Tama-chan and I mingled with one of the booth owners from time to time during the event, but we had to move out on the 3rd day to join the small gathering of dolls outside the exhibition halls.

Cosplayers

Cosplayers, a staple phenomenon during any ACG events. With such eye candies all around inside and outside the halls, of course photogs were close behind, setting-up temporary and simple photo-shooting areas all around and luring the former into their lens.

As expected hundreds of fans and trend-chasers dressed up as their favourite characters from anime/manga/game related materials, showcasing their love for the said series. 

Cosers of the Fate series is especially in abundance this year due to the featured mobage for the event…

Mini Doll Gathering

On the 2nd day of the event, I stumbled upon a small gathering of 1/3 dolls at an area outside the exhibition halls, the usual gathering place for cosplayers and photogs. The sort of the organiser of the gathering invited me to bring Tama-chan along for display, which I obliged on day 3.

It’s really been a while since Tama-chan join any proper doll gatherings during any AFA, not since that huge one back half a decade ago…
