Went to ACGC 2008, that was held at Berjaya Times Square last weekend, main reason I was there was because I am helping a few cosplayers with their Air Gear photoshoot, which I’ll post later ^^.
Quite surprise when I reach the floor where the event was held, it was fill with game booths, didn’t see anything related to animes or comics at all, and no doujinshi either. The floor was dominated by loads of online games, pc games etc, with Cabal taking the biggest booth, for their launching.
Met up with some cosplayers that I know and some photographers from LYN as well, but I didn’t took much photos on the first day, most of these photos are from the second day.
Lets start of with some kawaii girls in sailor-fuku ^^
Akito and her friend, she was one of the Air Gear cosplayer I was shooting on Sat.
More booth promoters.
Commander Chaos in action. He brought C4 that day ^^.
Mitsuru Kirijo from Persona 3.
No idea what she’s cosplaying as, but cool nunchacks.
Supposedly from a Korean game, cool looking costume.
Kallen from Code Geass.
From Gintama according to my friend.
Aizen vs Byakuya.
Time to get blown away, the guy was cosplaying as The Punisher.
Athrun and Cagalli.
Enma Ai minus the red eyes.
Lolita holding Yuki hostage.
Éclair from Kiddy Grade. I wonder what happen to Kiddy Grade season 2, hmmmm.
The event is more about games than animes or comics, which I am not really interested in. At least I get to meet my cosplayers friends that I don’t get to meet often unless during event, and then there’s the Air Gear shoot, turn out pretty good.
Been going to too many events lately, time to take a break, fortunately the next event that I know of is in May, lots of time for me to rest up and also to shoot my figures that are not getting enough attention from me lately ^^.
All photos taken using my 400D/Rebel XTi with Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro, Canon EF 70-200 f/4 L (belong to my friend) and a 580exII attached. I definitely need faster lens for indoor, thinking of either a EF 50mm f/1.4 or a Ef 85mm f/1.8, both around the same price.
