AFA MY : Anime Festival Asia Malaysia 2012

AFA signboard with Misa
Thanks to the AFA organizers, we have an Anime Festival at Kuala Lumpur this year, about 6 months before Singapore’s yearly AFA.

One of the most anticipated theme this period is non-other than Accelerated World, and true enough, I spotted a fan cosplaying as Kuroyukihime.

AFAMYwm-102

Her wings were made of light weighted material, and her family were at the site, supporting her cosplaying efforts.

AFAMYwm-108

The standard feature, the pink pig, is actually rather cute on its own. I think that even if no one knows where do the pig originally came from, it will be able to attract much attention on its own.

We should be able to spot more cosplayers using the “Accelerated World” theme as the anime continues to the 2nd half of the year.

This year’s AFA at Malaysia also attracted a platoon of Dollfies lovers, who brought their daughters all the way to the humid capital…

AFAMYwm-103

It seems like many collectors like the “Saber” Doll very much.

Right beside the entrance, you will see Danny Choo’s booth, where he had several items on display. The most obvious one is the itasha…

which now comes with Mira sitting permanently on the engine, and you can have a photo with her as well

and of course, his daughters…
