Comic Fiesta 2016 : My second anime / comic / games event for 2016




one for the album


My baes and the ticket to CF2016 taking space in my office.



The hidden doujinshi hall




Sasuke-chan and Naruto-kun!
Bought these for inspiration.
Hey, maybe I should go to an ACG event as Kyuubi, he's a cute furry thing.
And some cats - a badge and stickers because they are damn cute.

Awesome Madara Uchiha!
He's like Sasuke's great uncle or something.


Anyone knows what cosplay is this ?



This year I finally went to Comic Fiesta after missing it last year. i read online that people had problems parking, so I decided to ditch it. Since it’s my first time and I heard from a few people I met at a J-Fest event that the event is a massive one compared to Animangaki or others I’ve been to, so I decided to go alone. Actually going with a partner would be great, but since I left the kids with their daddy (Yes i am a mother of two) so no partner then. My soulmate isn’t really keen in anime/comic/games events but at least he lets me enjoy my late entry into the acg thingies.

So, the place where it’s held is situated about twenty minutes from my house but it took me an hour, what with no parking at the next door mall. I am such a loser when I am on the road. My waze wasn’t working with non-existent broadband, sigh. After several times going up and down three parking floors, my spectacled eagle eyes spotted some lady getting into her car from thirty metres away, so I managed to get a parking spot. Yipppee!

Anyway the entrance fee was RM25 (like 6 US dollars and 659 yen) and they used the first hall as a registration counter before visitors were directed (I felt like goats being herded to the barn when going down the stairs) towards a hall about 200 metres away.

So upon entering the first hall all I could see at the entrance were some big named company. Ignoring them, then I saw people getting upstairs to a small upper storey. Turned out that was where food were sold. There’s a few games booth along side the food stalls. So I returned downstairs and tried to search for the doujinshi / artists booths but couldn’t find any. Really I was only there for the doujinshi booths.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find them at first and I was fine about not buying anything. I went to browse stalls selling swords, katana, cosplays, t-shirts, bolster cases - like really non sexy dakimakura,  until I finished the usual merchandise booths which was like 40 of them and tadaaa in another much more darker hall was the doujinshis/artists.
So I got inside and this time browsed about 85 percent of them to my hearts content. The last time I was at one, I was carrying my one year old along and could only manage half of them. This time there’s like 50 booths of them and 500 people moving along. It was getting sweaty at times so I decided to skip some crowded tables for the next. Look what I bought.

I forgot to mention that I wore my new yukata which soulmate bought from Japan a few weeks ago. Man, I feel so pretty. But since my phone was almost dead I couldn’t capture a proper picture of myself.

Took only two pictures of cosplayers though I saw about fifty. The first thing I bought was the Sasuke postcard, since it’s right at the entrance and cost so cheap I bought it instantly. From what I saw, almost every booth had Yurii on Ice arts but I am not keen in buying them so I skipped them all. There’s like ten booths with One Punch Man arts but no Sound Of Speed Sonic at all. There only had Saitama and Genos, aaaahh. I think in the next event I am participating I am really going to sell some SOS things. I only grabbed some items because I am short of fund and my car needed refuelling.

I bought some Sasuke and Naruto things because they’re my go to anime. There were a few things not acg related and cute. I wish I could buy more. Maybe next time. I think I’ll skip Comic Fiesta next year and attend Animangaki instead.

I wonder why people could crowd to such places and pay RM25 (it’s quite hefty for me), but at some other place the entrance is free but people don’t come at all. It’s all tied to demands and supply. Really, Malaysians aren’t that poor, or at least some of us.

Anyway, got heaps of ideas from CF2016. Like I need to brush on my drawing skills, maybe perfecting my kanzashi flower skill - ok this sounded like I am stealing ideas from the booths there. Anyway there’s a tonnes of things to sell actually. I saw a small corner of hair / forehead / necklace fit for cosplayers. Maybe I could focus on that. I have tonnes materials lying around and they could see the world that way. You’ll die when you look at my craft stash, I am so bad at being a crafts supply shopaholic and then holding them hostage for months before making anything. I should make some things. 

On another note, I might just draw for my one self or just sell Speed Of Sound Sonic (One Punch Man) things and the rest, sell crafts disguised as ACG products. Like cats? I dunno. I need to take time with these things, maybe chuck my phone in a corner and start being serious about making things. I am a wannabe artist, but my wannabe game is strong, I am crying in my sleep. Ok bye.
