It maybe an ordinary day for the normies, but it is a day worth celebrating for those who knows the very reason to get excited about…
A very happy Moe Day (萌の日) to the wonderful community that is the otaku-dom!!! ^o^
Perplexed over what today is? For starters, the kanji 萌 consists of 4 character components that when you read it in the traditional sequence (Up, Down, Right, Left…) you’ll get 十月十日 which essentially means 10th of October in both Japanese and Chinese!
Although it’s still a working day for many of us, don’t let the stress and workload overshadow your joy over the (un)official moe moe kyun filled hibi!
Close to a year back, I’ve placed a commission for Tama-chan’s new wigs via a stylist from Taobao. Unfortunately due to backlogs on their side, the work on the wigs doesn’t even start until about the 5th Moon of this year.
After a rather lengthy back-and-forth constructive exchanges with the stylist about the project for the past few months, I’ve finally received the completed commission at the end of last Moon…
As for newest outfit for Tama-chan, her summer bikini set (From Fate/Extella Link, also her Saint Graph in Fate/Grand Order as Lancer class) is also a commissioned work via a seamstress on Taobao as well, which too arrived at my doorsteps a couple of Moons back.
It’s been roughly two years since a proper pseudo studio session for Tama-chan, finally took some time and lotsa pain (My body can no longer hold on for such long hours of dedicated photo-shooting… Blame my increasing life levels. ^^;) to finally take some yesterday, abandoning the idea to attend the Comic Fiesta Mini event for the weekend in favour of my lovely waifu. :P
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…
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…
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!
