ACF 2008 event area
Another event to add to the burgeoning list of ACG(Anime, Comics and Games) events in Malaysia. ACF wisely (or not so wisely) decided to hold their event the week before GACC 2008. Heck.. didn’t even know about the even if it wasn’t LiLKev from The Figure Mall giving me a heads-up a week ago.
Generally, I feel it’s more of a commercial event, with more sponsor and advertising booths around than actual ACG attractions, one of the rare ones were The Figure Mall people. (bless them for actually taking all the trouble to set up and display their collections)
That said the event wasn’t too bad, and thanks to the entertaining (but hamsap) emcee, I quite enjoyed the show. The cosplay competition didn’t really get much people joining in, only about 7 or so, not to mention that it’s basically the same people from MAGe(an earlier event). It sometimes makes me think that if you organize an ACG event w/o CF (Comic Fiesta) cooperation, it gets way less participation.
Coming back to topic, the emcee brought most of the life to the event, with some enjoyable Q&A sessions… well, actually more like “come to stage and dance/act” things. Towards the end of the event, he even had 3 guys and 2 girls to come up on stage to perform a “chair-dance”, Britney Spears-style. Needless to say, he even participated in it… leading to much guy-on-guy and lulz. Man, that was just unforgettable.
Overall, the event was somewhat enjoyable, just probably suffered from the lack of promotion, exposure and participation. The emcee brightened my day somewhat, and getting to meet The Figure Mall people was a blast too.
Next event: GACC 2008.
Rows of gashapon machines to
rip tempt you off
Jigoku Shoujo cosplayer. Only one cute enough for me to ask for a pic.
Playing with props. Tsuruya with a sniper rifle is scary.
Again… putting a gun in Tsuruya’s hands makes me somewhat scared.
Meido~ meido~ meido~
SWAT guy upgraded his arsenal with a chain gun. It even spins.
Nice sorceress/summoner cosplayer.
The participants of the cosplay competition.
Oh… no photos of the guy-on-guy “chair dance” because I was laughing too hard to reach for my camera. Plus… I felt it’s better for the people involved to have one less record of their…”exploits”.
