Comic Fiesta 2017 @ Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre~!!

Assalam & hye everyone~!!

So, this will be my first post for 2018, but it is actually regarding an event in 2017, hehe...

Comic Fiesta 2017 was held on 16th-17th December 2017 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, right next to Suria KLCC. It is an annual event celebrating anime, manga, and game fans across Malaysia. For this event, I registered myself to become a volunteer (just wanted to gain experience).

This is the biggest anime+manga+game related event in Malaysia. It's also known as CF. Other events similar to this are Animangaki, Japan Otaku Matsuri, MGACE, Cosplay Festival, and others.

As a volunteer on the basic doujin booth team, I was assigned to guard the exit doors (doujin comes from the term doujinshi that means self-published works by amateurs). On Day 1, I wore the CF t-shirt, a panda shawl, and a panda hat (trying to portray myself as a panda lover, haha).

On Day 2, I wore a pink yukata (the same one that I wore during Bon Odori 2017).

Since I was on duty, I did not get to snap pics of the various cosplayers who attended the event. So, here are only a few pics that I have.

This pic was taken at 6.29 p.m., half an hour before closing time

Despite several issues that have arised due to the event, I still hope that CF will continue to be held in the years to come. For myself, I enjoy going there as I can meet old and new friends, see cosplayer idols face-to-face, buy merchandise, and see various people cosplaying their fave characters.

Thanks for reading & happy blogging~!!
