C75 figures preview

Was checking out a few blogs that posted photos of figures reveal during the recent C75 event and a few of them left me drooling for more pics.

First OMG OMG it’s Saber Lily, I am so glad that I decided not to get the figma. It’s still a prototype and no one suppose to take photos of her, but I guess someone manage to sneak a shot XD.

Wonder Festival 2009 Summer ~ Alter

Miyafuji YoshikaNot really new stuff, just a closer look at Alter’s figures that was on display during Wonder Festival 2009 Summer yesterday. Photos via Akibahobby.net.

Still my most anticipated figures for the event, was quite surprise seeing a painted version of Yui there cause I was only expecting to see Mio. Hopefully Alter will release Ritsu and Mugi as well and not left us collectors hanging.

Mio face is looks a tad off, hopefully the final version will be better.

Yui is well perfect I would say ^^

The Noumi from Little Buster! that went up for PO recently

Mercedes from Odin Sphere, she looks very nice, kinda like the colors.

Selvaria from Valkyria Chronicles, loves those flowing hair ^^

Clalaclan from Shining Wind (or Tears). It’s a very early sculpt though.

Another Saber maid ver. The previous one was very nice and detailed, seems like this new version is the same as well.

Alter rendition of Saber Lily, not as impressive as GSC version but still nice nonetheless.

Miyafuji Yoshika from Strike Witches

Some figures from ToHeart 2 series

Alter is adding another 2 characters to their Ikkitousen series, hoping to see Sonsaku Hakufu later.

TAF 2009

Was at Taylor’s for their TAF event yesterday, since TAF was the first event where we started our figures display, it became sort of a tradition to go there every year. The event was pretty small scale, with the usual competition, doujinshi, some additional attraction they have was the Cosplay Cafe and a small matsuri at the end of the day.

Hatsune Miku (Project Diva ver.)

Attended a Vocaloid photoshoot last Sunday at MMU, it’s also the first time I am using my Nana-chan (EOS 7D) for a proper photoshoot. I really want to try out and see how she’ll perform in a real photoshoot and she did not disappoint me and perform great ^^. Anyway enough about my Nana-chan, let’s get to the photos.

There were 8 cosplayers and more than 10 photographers, not sure of the exact number, I just know there’s a lot, hence the lack of photos for other cosplayers, I just manage to take shots of a few of them.

Thanks to Angeline for the short photo session, she was cosplaying as Hatsune Miku (Project Diva ver.) This is the first time I took photos of her cosplay, though I did see her in a few event, but never really took any pics of her at the time.

AFA 2009 Day 1

Reach Suntec Convention & Exhibition hall around quite early in the morning to queue up for the entry tickets, luckily the queue wasn’t really that long at the time. But still I think it was already pass 10am when we finally got the tickets and the queue was insanely long at that time. With our tickets in hand we started queueing again just to enter the hall. The crowd was so huge that none of the local event that I have been to can even compare to it.
