ACF(Anime Comic Fair) 2008: A brief coverage.

This would be the second con(can it be called such?) i attended this year. The first one being the MAGe Festa in Nilai. The location for the event was better this time as it was located in Berjaya Times Square right smack in the middle of Kuala Lumpur and i expected attendance and the cosplayers to be of better quality. The guys of The Figure Mall also had a figure exhibit on both days of the event. Too bad i could only attend today and i couldn’t stay for long as well so don’t expect too much detail from me.

I arrived at the scene at about 11.30 a.m. didnt look too lively so i decided to come back later.

The main attraction of the day for me was The Figure Mall’s display because it gives me the chance to shoot figures i don’t own but am interested in nonetheless. It was also great practice for a fledgling photographer such as myself.

The cosplay scene was rather dead though with quite a few familiar faces and costumes that were recycled from MAGe Festa. Guess there just arent that many cosplayers around these days.(i dearly wish i am wrong about this)

More doujin booth present this time around and the event itself was definitely commercialized with retailers setting up anime , computer games , and cosplay booth.(i spotted a Haruhi school uniform but didn’t dare try it on.

I now leave you with the pics of the day.
