A few days left before Lunar New Year, an announcement is made while the public is still busy wrapping up loose ends of their jobs before celebrating the upcoming holidays… w
The date and venue for Anime Festival Asia 2016 has been decided!
Although I’ve finished all my reports on my Anime Festival Asia 2015 experience, I’ve yet to showcase my acquisitions from the course of this pilgrimage. =w=
I barely spent a
dime fortune within the exhibition halls, only really gotten a couple of stuff (And a DIY) from the GSC booth… A majority of my real prizes came from outside the event itself…
Anyway, many thanks to the organisers, I’ve managed to obtain a pass to enter the halls and stage area as a, well, media. ^^;
For this I salute the ones involved in the decision to set aside one pass for me. o7
Apparently there are two levels for Media passes: only those with Media (1) enjoy the privilege to snatch piccies during the stage events normally prohibited to regular visitors and Media (2) holders.
As with any other years, I’ve spent much of my visiting hours within the exhibition halls, while only sneaked outside for some cosplay shots.
Pretty much a basic of any ACG conventions, cosplayers flocked the open area just one floor below the halls, setting up private photog booths and mingling amongst themselves. =w=
Hmmm… Took quite a number of piccies at the doujin area this year when compared to the earlier years, otherwise know as the Creative Hub as per past AFAs…
Anyway, the area feels much compact this year, with many eager visitors swarm the place during the course of the event days, leaving my space unfilled mostly, traffic is all time chaotic.
