Comic Fiesta have definitely come a long way. I remember my first Comic Fiesta experience in 2002 (or was it 2003?) and it was held in a very small hotel hall. It was really small but cosy. So much have changed since my last CF trip (2007). The event this year had a pretty big event area and has a list of big commercial sponsors ranging from Animax to University and Hoyu. They also had some signing sessions.
One thing that hasn’t changed, was the warm and hospitable locals =). Alright, enough with my rambles, on to the pictures!
This is Peggy and myself in the hotel room waiting to be picked up by Faizul who was our most gracious tour guide and driver for the entire trip! Maria not in pictures because she had ventured out to buy us lunch (awesome Wanton noodles with the best Char Siew I’ve eaten in a long time!)
Skye as Sheryl Nome. Love her dress!
Yes…it was very crowded –_-
Red Queen and Alice! I never knew they were friends xD
Noshuu as Sheryl Nome!Yuanie as Kagamine Len, Himitsu version! Xrystal and Sakana were deign Rin and Miku but I didn’t have any chance to take a group photo T_T
The only picture I have of Jesuke and Sakurazaki xD
Rina and friend as Kaito and Miku. Cendrillion version?
It has recently become a craze for Singapore cosplayers to trade CosCards with each other. Personally, I’m not for this whole craze because the practical side of me can’t help screaming (internally ^^; ) at the extravagance of this action and a namecard still retains its most primitive purpose to me. But oh well, everyone' just wanna have fun so…… ^^;;
Such a sweet Yuna. I melt every time I see her smile >w<
Ringo, Valerie, Himiko and Natsume as characters from APH!
The Twin Towers. LOL
Ryeain as an original character. So cute!
With Sally! She was the one who helped me with my web code problem ^^. Really nice to meet her again after AFA!
And I saw Akihiko whom I met during the Hong Kong Halloween treats Party!
Very pretty Lightning *_*
Very ethereal RG Veda Cosplayer *_*! She definitely had the grace and features to pull this off >w<
Gumi, Madness of Duke Venomania version! Was pretty surprised to see a cosplay of this song since this song doesn’t seemed to have picked up yet. But lovely choice of colours and fabric. Also a shout out to the cosplayer , thank you for reading this blog^^
Like I mentioned previously, Comic fiesta this year was a big eye opener for me, partly due to the commercialism of it. There used to be almost no commercial sponsors but this year had a lot. But I’m not complaining, don’t get me wrong. Having the ability to get the attention of the big boys proves the grandness of the event and definitely help to secure better locations =)
The many merchandise booths!
I’m really glad Comic fiesta still retains its big array of Doujins and fan merchandise booths. I must admit I went gaga over the cuteness of the merchandises sold there.
Absolutely kawaii sock plushies on the right T_T. I bought a blue ninja for Shuui :D
Bumped into Akihiko again who changed into Miku XD
Idamaria! definitely a surprising cosplay to see ^^. Apparently there was a Kucabara too but I didn’t get the chance to meet him. I don’t know about you guys, but do you guys feel a sense of familiarity/bonding whenever you see someone who cosplays as the same character as you? I always feel a little happy whenever I see someone cosplay as characters I have done before (or loves). And its definitely one of the best things about attending events.
After the event, we dropped our stuffs at Zephyus’s room and went for dinner.
espresSOUP had one of the worse Minestrone soup I’ve ever tasted. The bread wasn’t any good either. It just tasted like plain white bread. Would have much preferred it if it was slightly toasted.
Very cute and Christmassy decorations at the main atrium of Berjaya Times Square =)
You can tell I love junk food ^^;
Shopping with ZY while waiting for Zephyus and Peggy to be ready for their photoshoots!
