Dolls, especially those of the 1/3 variety, has fast becoming regulars during any local cons these past few years. Looks like a lot of closet parents finally coming outta their sheltered shell. w
While there is no officially dedicated display booth for dolls, many of our visiting musuko and musume managed to find refuge under a kind Comic Fiesta Mini booth owner’s willingness to lend a part of their display for such.
The owner is actually the same one I got to know during PAM15!
Very nice fellows, I’ve even placed a commission on them for something made for Tama-chan during our mingling at CFMini15. =w=
After a general view on the event itself, we’ll have a look at various displays that scattered all over the exhibition halls…
Unlike Anime Festival Asia or many of the localised fan events (COSPAR, MOEPA, etc…), figure displays are pretty much non-existent here in Penang Anime Matsuri Summer Party 2015.
That said, a few commercial booths and the doujin circles in Creator’s Market personally set up their very own displays or sort.
Although the pre-order period for DD Sheryl Nome and DDS Ranka Lee along with their assortment of different outfits are long gone by now (Ended in January), it seems Volks will unveil yet a couple more outfits for them very soon.
While currently on schedule and in preparation to ship out by Autumn this year, an online poll was held on the official site some months ago on various outfits wore by both the songstresses in the series.
Looks like the result is out now. w
With the event titled as Cosplay Invasion 4, it would be a mystery if there aren’t any cosplayer stalking around the halls, don’t you think?
KanColle cosplay was pretty much the highlight of the event, with lots and lots of Kanmusume (And Kanmusuko) scattered all around…
Moving on from the many figures as seen in the last post, in this post we’ll shift our focus upon the larger dolls this time around that graced the very same booth.
