Is this for real?
Humanized anime Characters coming to life?
Massive crowd = Avid photographers, curious onlookers, anime fans, tourists and cosplayers.
I never understood the fascination behind all these anime craze.
Why do cosplayers find it fun to dress themselves up to look like their favourite anime characters?
My friend, Candice had enlightened me with this simple explanation.
Wouldn’t you want to look like or be like your idol?
And their deep admiration for their idols is expressed through cosplay.
( ‘The Maid Cafe’)
Judging by the long queue right outside this cafe, I’m pretty sure that it’s one of the most exciting attraction at AFA’13.
The anime craze has invaded Asia. I’m definitely feeling the ‘heat’ and passion from these anime fans. They even brought their loved ones to be part of the cosplayer’s crowd too!
Mother-daughter’s interpretation of Attack on Titans.
Cosplayers could have their personal photoshoot taken at Canon booths!
There’s a nail-painting booth too!
AFA Regional Cosplay Championship
After we got our nails painted, we made a dash to the other exhibition hall to catch the AFA Regional Cosplay Championship. We have missed the first half of the event and only manage to be in time for the prize presentation ceremony though.
These cosplayers must be sweating buckets by now.
This event goes international too. The anime storm has took on the world, for sure!
Attack on Titans must be a really popular anime as I saw several cosplayers dressing up as the characters in this anime !
Their costumes are quite elaborated!
Cosplayers hard at work
Striving hard to look their best on camera.
I reckon that it must be really tiring for them to stand and model in their outfit all day.
It was really fun shooting the cosplayers decking out in their specially-designed costumes.
See you soon, AFA!
