ANIMAX Carnival Malaysia 2014

DSC_2714-Edit


Hello Everyone !

ANIMAX Carnival Malaysia is my first event as a cosplay guest for this year ! Always a pleasure to be working with ANIMAX ~ my first experience was Hong Kong Halloween Treats back in 2011 and it was really fun to be able to visit Hong Kong during Halloween month !

This time I'm invited as one of the cosplay guest judges alongside Arisa Chow , Yuki Godbless and Jiaki Darkness from Thailand. I'm cosplaying as Uka-sama from Inari KonKon Koi Iroha with Arisa as my Inari ! It's my first time meeting Yuki and Jiaki , they are well known for their amazing costumes - plus they are really friendly ! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Arisa made Kon-chan to go with her Fushimi Inari cosplay too ! It is mad adorable !

This year's ANIMAX Carnival is bigger and better compared to the previous years !

It's held in MidValley Mega Mall Convention Centre , with lots of booths to keep their visitors entertained ! It was really packed and people starts queuing as early as 9 am ! Anime fans are super passionate people ~ ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

Brand new season of Fairy Tail , my all time favorite !

Loving this quote by Lucy Heartfilia = " You have three choices , you can give up , give in or give it your all ! "

Go Fairy Tail Mages !!

Did you know that Inari KonKon Koi Iroha is based on a real shrine in Kyoto , Japan ?

The whole setting of the anime is in the town where the " Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine " is. It's a collaboration between Shrine and the Kyoto City government , fully supported the making of this anime !

How lovely if I can visit the shrine Japan one day and bring along my Uka ! It would be a dream come true ! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

( Thanks guys for sharing the information about the shrine with me , appreciate it lots ! )

It's always an honour to be invited as a guest cosplay judge ! I had a wonderful time watching the cosplay performances and everyone is so creative and came prepared. I really admire the amount of effort and craftsmanship they put into their costumes and props. Good job guys !

Congratulations to all the winners ! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

My Uka-sama costume roughly took one month to complete.

One of the costumes that I'm really happy with , besides my Queen Esther from Trinity Blood ! This costume has many layers - two layers of Gi , one hakama , an apron and a skirt with long train. The skirt is made detachable so it's easier for me to move around during breaks !

My favorite part of the costume is the skirt/train , with more than 70 ++ flowers , all handmade and hand-beaded with pearls and crystals ! It took me few days to make all the flowers but it's all worth it , I love how it looks as a whole ! (❁´‿`❁)*✲゚*

First episode of Inari Kon Kon Koi Iroha showing on the main stage !

One of my fav part of the anime is the OP and ED songs. The OP song is by May'N , my goddess ! The ED song is by Maaya Sakamoto , whose voice is equally awesome ~ (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

Overall , it's another great and successful event by ANIMAX !

I loved the crowd very much , everyone is so passionate about anime and all the anime fans unite together in this lovely event ! Especially when everyone screams " ANIME DAISUKI ~~~ !!! " 

How much the Japanese anime/manga/cosplay culture have expanded throughout the years in Malaysia ~ I'm really happy that so many people are enjoying anime/manga/cosplay now ! Long live anime !! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

Cosplay | Kyoukai no Kanata with Hermes


p-01475


Hello April !

Oh my , time really flies ~ a blink of an eye and it's April already ! Which marks the beginning of my final semester in college. Can't believe that it's my final year and final semester. Gosh , but there's long way to go . . . want to pursue my degree perhaps next year ? * smiles *

Today I want to dedicate this blog post to my dear princess , Miss Hermes. She's my bff ( safe to call her that since it's our 3rd year together lol ) and this is our first cosplay together ! I miss her like mad especially when she went to Japan for holiday recently. But she still spend time texting me at night which is so sweet. ;-; . Yes , you are very important lol happy now ?

Hermes used to cosplay a lot last time but now she's more to a fashion blogger so I'm really honoured when I managed to convince her to cosplay with me ! Kyoukai no Kanata is one of my fav anime last year ~ lot's of heart wrenching moments and I especially love the baka aniki x imouto moments ! I really like Mirai too , she's a special character I must say !

I'm really happy throughout the photoshoot even though Hermes keep telling me that her Mirai cosplay is not good but I think that she is very cute in my heart. May our friendship last for many more years to come , my Princess ! Thanks for always being there for me (❁´‿`❁)*✲゚*

It's just a very simple and short photo session with Blur from Naneee? Photography , but he can make such pretty photos ~ always a fan of his photography ! Though we don't have a school to shoot in , I really like how the photos feel very autumn-ish due to the trees ! ( which I kept telling Blur , I want the trees lolololol )

Thank you so much , Blur ! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ
