Comic Fiesta 2013

by - Friday, December 27, 2013

The greatest event of the year for all anime, games, cosplay and manga lovers, Comic Fiesta 2013.
This awesome event was held on 21-22 December 2013 at Hall 1-6 KL Convention Centre. If you passed by KLCC that day, you surely saw a lot of cosplayers and visitors there queuing up to enter the hall for this event.

I'm glad to be part of Comic Fiesta since few years back but this year was kinda different. I was very happy and honored to be assigned as the Official Blogger for covering the whole event. The pass that gave me more opportunity to cover more insights of the whole event.

The event's hall coverage:

I was able to go in earlier than other people, and the first thing i saw was this huge area reserved for the League of Legends (LOL) tournament. It's one of the main highlights of the event and it attracts a lot of visitors too.

The Culture Japan booth was also one of the main attractions of the events. The limited stocks of the merchandise attracted a lot of people to queue up early to get their hands on all the limited products. It's definitely the first place to run to if you are a fans of Culture Japan.

The other main attractions of the event is the Coffytiam booth

People can get the limited guest cosplayer official cosplay card and posters here for the signing session during the events. Other than that, they also selling the official Comic Fiesta merchandise such as t-shirt and badges.

On the way to Coffytiam booth, you could also see redjuice booth that exhibits his art work.
Of course there was also a Kinokuniya pop-up booth next to it and they were selling some books and merchandises. 

Yet another attractions of the event, the Creative Art Market. Hundred of artist selling their awesome work or products for the two-days events. How can you missed it? (It was one of the crowded place during the event)

On the way to the main stage, there were a lot of booths set up for visitors to pay a visit. Some of the booth also held some awesome mini games for people to win some prizes home. 

Gempak Starz was also setting up a booth for their readers and fans to pay a visit.

And here's the main stage for holding a lot of main activities during the event such as the Cosplay Competition,  Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 finals, performances, extra live, presentation, Endgame ft. livetune and prize giving ceremony.

There were also a Creative Factor happening at the panel room near Hall 5 for people who wants to get more closer and learn more about the guest.

My personal experiences: 

1. Finally get the chance to...
Become one of the people who witnessed the crowd entered the hall...

and queued up for hunting the merchandises.

I'm not an early person and i tends to be a bit late for event. lol. So it's kinda difficult for me to be the first to enter the hall for event. And people always said "Early birds get the worms" and i can feel that because the merchandise ran out so fast, especially the limited ones. And it was great to see everyone so hyped up during the morning for the event.

2. Get the chance to know more awesome people...
