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!
In less than 2 months, this year’s Penang Anime Matsuri will occur once again, much to the anticipation of local ACG fans.
Announced on the official Facebook page sometime during dinner hours yesterday, various artistes and guest will make an appearance during the event itself!
The Penangites are anxious when no news whatsoever on Penang Anime Matsuri ever since the beginning of the year (Especially when PAM is not mentioned during AFA’s announcement unlike last year’s), but know they can finally rest assured and be excited with much anticipation…
Once again, Penang Anime Matsuri will be held on my island, at the Spice Arena, and falls on the 7th and 8th of July this year.
