Once again Anime Festival Asia come to Singapore. There were tons of Cosplayers visiting dressed in their professionally done costumes, most made their own costumes. It has gotten pretty competitive in dressing up as characters and many hobby photographers coming along joining in the event.
This is my second event, and I had truly enjoyed it, for someone not into Cosplay or even Japanese Anime, it has been quite an experience. These people take their costumes seriously and hobby photographers quite fiercely territorial in getting their money shots. This was the first time I had with so many willing models wanting to pose for a selfie or having the attention of photographers!
There was even a wedding proposal that happen right in front of me at the Festival!
Taken tons of images, won’t want to flood you with Anime fatigue. You can find them all on my Facebook Page : TheTravelLust
Until Next Year!
Its great visiting the festival in the convention, but the main action is outside at the atrium, where Cosplayers set up their shoots and wait for photographers for their self portraits.
Cosplayers are highly competitive and lap up all the attention for mass hordes of photographers. Every so often, a group of photographers will form when a Cosplayer strut their stuff!
