8 April 2017 Saturday

080417 (Sat) Day One

I reached the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre at around 1400 hours.

There were only a handful of cosplayers and more photographers that came down for the event today.

The maid cafe was on the other side of the stage area.

Only managed to take a few photos.

I left at 1700 hours and did not wait for the cosplay competition as you need to pay to get into the stage area.

Many thanks to all the cosplayers that posed for the camera without fear or favour.

Cheers.

1 April 2017 Saturday

010417 (Sat)

My first cosplay photos for the year 2017.

A small cosplay competition at the Harvey Norman Millenia Walk store with guest cosplayer  Siutao from Hong Kong.

Quite a good number of cosplayers and photographers that came down for the event.

I stayed till around 1430 hours and made my move to the Harajuku Fashion Walk Singapore (HFWSG) meetup at the Merlion Park.

However, it started to rain heavily as I was walking towards the Merlion Park.

In the end, I abandoned the plan to go for the HFWSG and went back home.

Many thanks to all the cosplayers that posed for the camera without fear or favour.

Cheers.

2016 DEC Comic Fiesta, Putra World Trade Centre, Malaysia

17 December 2016 Saturday

171216 (Sat) Day One

This is the first time that the Comic Fiesta Malaysia is being held at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC).

I came at 0800 hours and the long queue was already at the road outside near to the Sunway Putra Mall.

When we reached inside the PWTC holding area, it was only half full.

I have to say that it was quite difficult to take photos of the cosplayers at the PWTC exhibition halls as there were no space for photography compared to the previous locations.

181216 (Sun) Day Two

Today, I came down at 0830 hours and the queue was quite short, we were ushered into the PWTC holding area at 0850 hours.

At 0915 hours, the early bird ticket holder were allowed to go into the halls.

However, we were only able to go into the halls at 0950 hours and the human jam was all the way from the connecting bridge.

I notice that there were lesser crowd today.

Finally, able to take photos of the cosplayers at the PWTC main entrance atrium, there were quite a number of photographers.

This is my last coverage of cosplay events for the year 2016.

Many thanks to all the cosplayers that posed for the camera without fear or favour.

See you in 2017 and have a great new year.

Carpe Diem.

2016 DEC CosArena Cosplay Competition, Tampines Youth Festival, Our Tampines Hub, Singapore

4 December 2016 Sunday

041216 (Sun)

Coming right after last week biggest anime convention here in Singapore the 2016 Anime Festival Asia is the first 2016 CosArena cosplay competition at the newly opened Our Tampines Hub.

I am quite impressed with the layout of the Our Tampines Hub with a  large atrium, the foodcourt and restaurants are also located near the atrium.

Hopefully, more cosplay events will be organised at this new location in the near future.

Invited cosplayers and judges were Dat-Baka, Yuki Godbless and Jiaki Darkness.

There were 17 cosplayer contestants for the 2016 CosArena Cosplay Competition and it started on the dot at 1400 hours.

The winners were announced at 1600 hours.

I have to say that the 2016 CosArena Cosplay Competition was a well organised event.

Congratulation to cosplayer Alexander Jameouson Tan cosplaying as  Sephiroth the winner of the 2016 CosArena Cosplay Competition.

Qiute a good number of cosplayers and photographers that came down to support the event.

The 2016 EOY at the Marina Barrage next week will the last cosplay event for the year 2016 here in Singapore.

Cheers.

2016 NOV Anime Festival Asia Singapore, Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore

24 November 2016 Thursday

241116 (Thu) Day -One

I managed to come down to Suntec City to recce the place today after my late lunch.

Currently, the level 3 concourse was quite empty with half of the area for the ticketing counters and there were three gundam models on display.

However, no guarantee that booths will be setup and the blinds closed for the 2016 Anime Festival Asia (AFA).

It will be a packed back to back cosplay events for this last few weeks of the year 2016 with the COSARENA Cosplay Competition at the Our Tampines Hub, The EOY at the Marina Barrage and I believe that many here will also make their way to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the Comic Fiesta.

Cheers.

Date: 25 (Fri) – 27 (Sun) November 2016

251116 (Fri) Day One

I came down to Suntec City at around 1500 hours as I had a dental appointment as I was having a toothache.

A lot of drama today with the Suntec City security guards telling the cosplayers that they could not cosplay with their weapons prop.

I also witness a near fight between a teenager and an uncle about taking photos of the cosplayers.

Not much crowd today for AFA.

Stayed around 1800 hours before going back home, I did not take a lot of photos today.

261116 (Sat) Day Two

I came down at around 1130 hours and the level 3 concourse was not really packed.

The makeshift studios near the glass panel were already in business taking photos of the cosplayers.

There were a few cosplayers doing the current en vogue mannequin challenge.

It started to rain around 1430 hours as I was heading out for my late lunch.

When I returned around 1600 hours, the level 3 concourse and hallways were packed to the gills and it was quite difficult to take photos of the cosplayers.

The place started to thin down around 1900 hours as most “close shop” for dinner and to rest for the last day tomorrow.

271116 (Sun) Day Three

After two days of AFA, it was taking a toll on my body with the walking and carrying heavy camera gears.

The level 3 concourse was not really packed when I reached Suntec at 1100 hours.

I have to say that there were lesser people on Sunday compared to Saturday.

This is the end for the biggest cosplay event for 2016 here in Singapore.

Many thanks to all the cosplayers that posed for the camera without fear or favour.

See you at the 2017 Anime Festival Asia Singapore.

Day Three photos are still being post processed.
