ACF’08 [Day 1] Not enough attraction?

Was at Anime Comic Fair 08 yesterday in KL. Me and pa did a figure exhibit again, but this time we will be on the 2nd day too.

When we went to our booth, we were surprised that it got relocated to the center. This is even a better location as can easily attract visitors😀 Not only that, despite using the same venue as CimicFiesta 2monts ago, the layout was kind of different, which is a plus.

However, throughout the event yesterday, it seems it didnt manage to pull a big crowd. I wonder why, as the banner was good looking compared to MAGe ones.

Entrance

Some pics of the booths setup inside.

So pic below is our booth after setup. The figure count seems few, thats because some of them arent present yesterday, and will be exhibit today (we plan to swap some, as do not want people to think since they saw it yesterday, not worth visiting).

More pics on my flickr. The event officially kick off at about 12pm, which is kind of delayed by few hrs, probably the organizers was waiting for the crowd to grow.

If you cant may MAGe post, indeed you’ve seen them (the cosplayer in pic). In fact almost 80% of cosplayers who appeared at MAGe appeared here in same outfit, except for the SWAT guy, with his weaponry upgraded.

The main competition of the day was dance competition. However most dance crew attended was seems to be B-boys and B-girls. Kind of odd if you ask me, for this sort of dance at anime fair =__=” Anyway, the champion group, Electroshock, manage to heat up the hall as they showcased their cool dance.

Anyway, one of this dance crew is also an anime fan, as he himself did inquire information on Shinku and Manabi Straight figure. Who says cool dudes dont watch anime? :p

Some cosplayers pics of the day.

And to end this post, our group pics LOL

See you guys today (Sunday) at ACF08!!

  15. Terasa says :

    This is going to be costly to an extent. You should try to make an estimate of how much you will end up spending to give your bathroom the required new look. It is better you settle this aspect of things properly so that you will not end up getting hung mid way through the redesigning of the bathroom.
