Comic Fiesta 2010

Well when they always say about comic fiesta, its mostly about taking photos, wearing costumes and selling manga products.

It was my first time yesterday, going to an event where people spend months preparing for, and cash that doesn't fall from the sky. The atmosphere at Comic Fiesta 2010 was totally amazing.

The costumes were mostly made by themselves, which was very surprising. This is because the detail of their clothing and weapons were sharp and real. It was literally animation characters walking out of the television screen.

However, that is not only what I saw about Comic Fiesta. From the angle of the back stage, mind those who work to make such event successful. It was said that the people behind the scenes were purely volunteers, creating an avenue where local talents can come together.

Besides the committee, the spirit of helping each other was clear. Take note that no matter what background each character has, they are always one. Each and every cosplayer helped each other putting on costumes, applying make up and commenting each other to look at their best. Some dont even know each other, but have met through forums to work on cosplay projects.

All in all, it was an awesome day. I would definitely love to attend the next comic fiesta, hoping to bring more details to you guys and learn more. =)

I will doubt you if you say you went to Comic Fiesta for the sake of interest in anime/manga. I think you just went there for plain photography purposes.

It's not wrong, but it's just hard for me to believe if you actually liked all these Japanese things.
