NYAF 08 Day 1 Coverage

This is my 1st time ever, traveling to a foreign place, alone. Fly all the way from CA just to meet Tanaka RIE.

Arrived in New York LGA at around 9am on 26th Sept . It was troublesome enough for me to carry all my stuff around town just because I can only check-in at 3pm.

NYAF 08 was held at Jacob Javits Exhibition Center, downtown Manhattan. Weather was on the not good side because it rains w/ gust of winds.

The convention hall was so big and packed, way bigger than the grandest Malaysian ComicFiesta ever had. It was big to the scale of 7x.

I was not totally alone during this con, as i met a new friend Danny from Miami on a bus. So went all over the cons to snap pics of cosplays.

All these pics were snapped with sony Alpha300 w/ 18-55mm kitlens, custom WB with no external flash.

The difficult part is that theres 2 halls and both have different downlight. Duh~

For more of Day 1 pics, do checkout my flickr. Feel free to comment and critique my pics.

    The ‘?” is Izumi Rio of Full Moon wo Sagashite holding a Jonathan ghost. Also I believe that mask and those eyes are from Kamen Rider.

    By any chance, are you still fasting?

  2. C221 says :

    That’s definitely Kamen Rider.

    I was there on Day 2 :3 Any coverage on that?

    @C221: Thanks. Its been some time since i watched Kamen Rider.

    I see, the stress is killing me lately and I got my fever yesterday. It did a number on me, since I woke up 5AM EST without an alarm clock for 3 continuous days after the Sunday convention. Sadly, I don’t know how to deal with it -_-.

    By the way, did you ever get my 4-5 mails? Sorry I went overboard.

  5. e-jump says :

    @Brian: Thanks for the mails.
    I’ll be replying to it tonight.

  7. Aoshi says :

  8. Panther says :

    Holy shit. Fat Soi Fong.😦

    FF girl is Yuna from FFX. Bleach characters in the last photo are ex-Espada Nel Tu, still the brokest bad guy ever Aizen Sousuke and the gay Espada Szayel Apporo, from left to right.

    Big cons are big.

  9. e-jump says :

    @GD: Sup Danny. Thanks for dropping by. Im recovering from my fever,but the caugh wont be going away as of now.
    Still fixing and uploading my pics.
    Working on RIE now.

    @Panther and Aoshi: It was well worth it to travel far just to see her.
    If somehow your favorite idol is appearing on major cons as this but quite far, JUST DO IT

  10. Brian says :

    Glad to see you are doing alright. I hope you feel better.
    I agree, LOL, JUST DO IT, even if it kills you. I wish I did something like that in the future.

  11. greendap says :

    Glad that you are feeling better, you still in California? Share your pics with me sometime. I have some also if you want, from New York and the Anime festival.

  12. e-jump says :

    @Brian & GreenDap:

    Will send some high res pics to you guys when theyre ready

  13. Quidley says :

    good blog
    it’s very useful.
    Thanks.

    I was reading something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your perspective on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read earlier. I am still pondering over the opposite points of view, but I’m inclined to a great extent toward yours. And no matter, that’s what is so good about advanced democracy and the marketplace of thoughts online.
