Comic Fiesta 2005 Trip.

Well, for the unintiated, Comic Fiesta(CF) is a local event that’s the rough equivalent of Japan’s Comiket and America’s anime con’s. It’s not as big as those events but it’s still worth a visit :).

First of all, this year’s CF was held at Sri Sedaya School’s Hall. Being it a private school, the venue was satisfactorily big and air-conditioned enough to fit everyone in. I still remember a horrendous CF back 2-3 years ago where the venue was for 50 people, but had to fit in 200-300 people >.< . I heard that last year was at the National Art Gallery, but too bad missed it. Still the choice of venue was okay, except for the location of the venue, which was quite far off any food stalls..... the nearest one being AT LEAST 30 minutes away. I guess the best part of it were the cosplayers. I saw quite a lot of variety there, from the ever-present Naruto and Bleach cosplayers right down to the D-Grayman cosplayers and EGL'ers. I guess the Malaysian cosplay scene is getting much more better :).For pics, click here and here too.

I didn’t really stay long though, due to starvation so I went to the nearby shopping center thanks to a friend and bought some groceries. It was kinda funny that I went to CF and came back with apples and shower gel XD. Unfortunately, none of the merchandise there interested me, being the run-of-the-mill Naruto and Bleach related stuff. It’s kinda sad to see the shocking lack of merchandise for other series over here, but then it would really hard to get past the Customs, considering the stuff that I want are mostly jailbait “exciting” stuff, XD.

Anyways, the best part should be tommorow… oops today, with the cosplay competition, but due to transport problems I can’t go >.<. Well, there's still next year ^_^.

    I’m a bit anti-cosplay myself, but that Urahara cosplay in the first link = awesome. :)

    Hehe, he would be flattered. I heard he made the whole costume himself. There’s also a Doctor Doom, where the guy ACTUALLY made it himself WITH aluminium.Not sure if there’s a pic of him or not.

    Aiiii~~~~….. too bad I’m too poor to afford a digital camera :(.
