Backlog: Comic Fiesta 2015

by - Monday, April 04, 2016

Super backlog post as you can see from the 'Year' I wrote for the title of this blog post.
It was so backlog because I thought I lost the memory card that contained all the photos. I couldn't find it anywhere in my room and I was so scared that I threw it away while cleaning my room.
Luckily in the end, I found the memory card and retrieved all the photos safely!

As mentioned in the blog post title, Comic Fiesta a.k.a CF is one of the ACG events that I will definitely attend no matter what happened. Since many years back then, I've been attending CF in a yearly basis without failed. Yup, I've been watching and looking at how CF evolves to the biggest Malaysia ACG event over years. And for last year, it was held at MIECC (The Mines) on 19th to 20th December 2015.

It always a 'MUST-GO' year end event for me because the events date always fell at holiday season and I really like to go and be part of the event. Thanks to CF again, I managed to get the very precious media pass that enable me to walk around basically every place. lol. I don't think I utilized the pass fully because 2 days were too short for me to explore such a big event.

For the first day, I was actually late for the event because I never thought MIECC would be so crowded with cars. I was literally stuck in a traffic jam before the parking entrance for nearly one and a half hour. Therefore, I just quickly collected my pass and went for the stage events that I wanted to attend without any delay after arrived at the venue,
I was really interested at the talk about FF XV. Since last year, Wan Hazmer actually gave an updates on FF XV progress, art works, character designs and so on. And for this year, still he was giving updates on progress art works and some gaming features. Together with another guest, Hajime Tabata, the Director of FF XV, they told us the game will be out real soon in the coming days. Let just hope I can play the game real soon. lol.

Not only they talked about FF XV, they also talk about history, profiles and so on, which took quite some time. lol. At the end, they also offer some job position to Malaysian who was talented in gaming design, If you are interested in the job position, maybe you can visit their website or email them? :)

Just a random photo of me with the stage. 
Just to show you all how far I am, from the stage. 

Hang around the event area after the FF XV's talk. Totally clueless about where to go because the media interview session was a bit confusing and I could not find the right place at that time. Accidentally bumped into the signing session of Shimo and Reika.

I took a nice photo of Shimo when she passed the signed merchandise to her fans.

Reika also signing for her fans which queued up for quite some time.

Glad to see him on that day.
It was easy to look for him since he always nearby the Culture Japan booth.

Met Danny after a long time too.
It's always great to see him.
I'm one of his fans, have been following his blog since many years ago.
Always love the way he introduces Japan. 
I get to learn more about Japan through his blog.
Always support him! :)

A photo with my sister is a must-do thing during CF.
She didn't cosplay on 1st day, will see her in her costume on the second day.

My boyfriend, my sister and I.

I saw Koro Sensei outside the interview room!
I really like the manga, never thought I will see someone cosplay as Koro Sensei at CF.

After wandering around the event area, I finally found the correct room for the interview. I was confused with the timetable because some interview session was overlap. Not really happy about the media timetable because I cannot attend the other interview which I wanted to attend. And sometimes, I have to gave up interview session because I wanted to watch the stage events. It was a mission impossible to attend all the listed interview.
Barely made myself into the interview room. The interview have started and I was late for it. The moment I arrived, Xizhen was talking about her cosplay experiences. It was my first time to see Mang & G too. Actually...I didn't stay till the end of the interview too because I had something else to take care of...And I was sad.

Finally after rushing here and there, I had time to sit down at one corner and look at my tag,

Had a photo of my nerdy style OOTD.

Super nerdy.

The day will not be ended without attending the Night Jam.
I was here because of FLOW.

You can see how crowded is the audience,

My BF and I, waiting for the performance to start.

Opening performance by Pretzel Heart.
Violin performance was amazing.

Then the second performer, Raijin.

Met Mang & G nearby the stage area too.
They were there for FLOW performance after the day activities.

Met Shimo too!
She was too kawaii. Noticed her because she just stood next to me.

My BF and I again.
He was not that interested in all the performance.
But I insist to stay and watch the performance, so he was just there to accompany me.

The last performers was FLOW.
Sadly I could not take any photos because the staffs there warned me not to. I was so glad that I waited for their performance. They performed for almost one and a half hour, the night jam session became their mini concert all of the sudden. It was super amazing.

The second day of the CF 2015.
I was late as usual because of the terrifying traffic congestion. Since it was so jammed all the way to the parking, my bf decided to parked the car way far from the event area. So, I had to walk all the way to the event hall under the hot hot sun. Lolz.

First of all, rushed all the way to the interview session of Reika, Shimo and Jin.
Finally managed to meet them and listen to their interview session.
I managed to ask them 2 questions and they answered my questions professionally.
Really learned a lot from them because they have many things to share with us and their fans.

Hearing all the experiences shared by cosplayers from different countries is like... exchanging cosplay cultures and experiences at an international level.

Managed to ask them for a wefie photo with us.
(Ignore my nerdy face, and ilooksofatinthisphoto...)

After the interview session, I was too happy because my fangirl's goal accomplished by meeting the guest cosplayers at one time. Walking down to the hall again and automatically walked towards the Culture Japan Booth again. 
Decided to take a photo with the booth but ended up only can see my head and the big banner of the booth,

Met my cousin there.

Finally I took a photo with the smart doll.
Day 1 was too crowded to take a photo with the and I was rushing here and there.
Finally have some time to slowly walk around and have a look at the smart dolls.

1 Malaysia Smart Doll.
It was unique and it means something for me when I look at them.
Always like and admire what Danny did for all these year.

It was always a learning process for me by attending the CF events every year. By seeing how ACG events getting bigger and bigger each year, I feel happy for it because more and more people get to know what is it and participate in it. It's always good to see people sharing the same hobby and be passion of what's they are doing. Not to forget how much efforts they put in to make the events even better compared to the old days.

That's all for this post.
