AFA08 Day1 summary

Only summary? Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!! (╬ ಠ益ಠ)

Why i post this as a mini report/summary is because im too tired to edit all the pics and its already 2am Sunday. A full coverage and large image gallaries will be posted later when im back to MY.

But to sum it up in a short, it was made of awesum, win and promising!! Morning started kind of weak, but things turns good and better towards end of the day.

so moe i want as a sister :3

Singaporean bloggers said their cosplayers are somewhat meh~ It was a LIE! Theres a bunch of pretty and good ones. I believe better ones will turn out on day 2 as the contest will be tomorrow (today as of this post).

I saw Mr Kunio giving out prizes to BAKUC winners, and Aniki’s(Mr. Ichirou) performance was awesome over 9000. It was a worthwhile to wait for his performance.

This man is really legendary and in a league of his own. He manage to lit up the atmosphere with all his old school songs, and man he’s so energetic at his his age.

In terms of otaku loots activities, i RAGED (╬ ಠ益ಠ) at KKNM bullshit lining-up-and-taking-turns-to-enter-their-booth system. They will not allow checking out what they had, ask prices etc unless you queue and reach your turn. I want my wasted time lining up BACK!!!

In the mean time, other booth do really offer stuff at super bargain price. Its so super until not making sense. You otaku should check out what being offered here.

Oh, while everyone hauls for bargains I found a treasure that i have been looking for the past 2 years. SRDX Hydra YEY!!!111 キタ━━━(゚∀゚)━( ゚∀)━(  ゚)━(  )━(゚  )━(∀゚ )━(゚∀゚)━━━!!!!! Yujin Rage all you want, but you wont kill my Hydra spirit :3

Cant wait for day 2. Gonna get some sleep.

    Hmm you did see a few good ones but yeah, there were not many today. At least the best came. :p

  2. tj han says :

    Good to see you got the goodies. Well, KKnM probably is best to leave for regular day shopping. Otherwise ask your SG friends to mail you the goods.

  3. e-jump says :

    @Panther: well, some of them really know how to pose right. loli ilya so moe, i died a little :3
    looking forward to todays cosplayers.

    @tj_han: well, i got only 1 so far. still try to dug some unpossible items to be found. I did notice few bootlegs, but its from super old figure releases. But for recent figure goes at bargain, using 3.0 as exchange rate still cheaper than in malaysia ಠ_ಠ . You not coming for some may’n? Aniki will still be here today, as cosplay judge.

  8. e-jump says :

    @gordon: yep, im the fag with mokona hat.
    Damn theres a lot of ppl approach me asking where i bought it.
    Sorry guys, it was bought while i was in California, and i just realized its and original merchandise by CLAMP/SEGA :p

    RAGING DAY2 in progress

  9. Brian says :

    Best if I summed it up here. Bad internet for me.

    So is this the exact same Hydra model you told me about before at NYAF? Either way, I’m really envious of you, and it must have been rewarding. (Seriously, I was like 0_o when you told me about what happened to the first one) Also, anything else that you managed to find there? I know Singapore’s merchandises are usually sold earlier than Japan (Card games in particular). I’m amazed that you said you noticed bootlegs even in official conventions.

    The cosplays are fine, I don’t get why these people feel so…masochistic about their works.

    I hope you didn’t get into too much trouble wandering around the city even when you’re recovering. I would like to see some of your sightseeing pictures sometime, particularly the MRT.

    I’m sorry about the autograph session during the May’n Concert. Guess there’s a problem everywhere in the world that no one is bound to know about like is there any cultural differences. Even despite what just happened to you, was it still worth it? I imagine that if they had a survey like NYAF, you would go all out on it.

    Is it just me, or the fact is that you seem to get lucky and unlucky so many times, its scary. I wish I had that…

  10. AK says :

    I actually saw Ilya quite a few times, but never got the chance to photograph her. You sir are win. Also, I loved your Mokona beanie.

  11. e-jump says :

    @Brian: The whole journey was definitely worth it. To get in Aniki’s concert (i’ll get on him later) really made my day1 and day2 fulfilling. Yeah, white board rage, but it got explained by other posters.
    That hydra is the one i told you about. Yes, its by Yujin, but old Yujin stuffs are good compared to todays ones.
    I did get some MRT shots. Will post up later

    @AK: Yep, 4 ilya shots on my flickr
