Hexlord is an internationally recognized cosplay photographer and Cosplay Photographers’ very first Featured Photographer of the Month is now one of our Cosplay Photographers International Correspondants (CPIC) reporting on cosplay conventions on the other side of the world. Hexlord attended one of his favorite cosplay conventions and did a write-up with some photos.
About a month ago, I attended Malaysia’s largest AGC (Anime, Games and Comics) event, Comic Fiesta 2011 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. As it was the event’s 10th anniversary, a lot of effort have been put in place for it’s success. It is by fans, for fans and close to 20,000 folks have turned up.
For many of the local photographers, as well as for the ones who came from other parts of the world, the event have always been viewed as a chance to capture the many cosplayers who thronged the event. Many of the series that they have cosplayed range from the common to the very rare, such as the Taiwanese Pili puppet show series.
There is a large park outside the convention area where the cosplayers and photographers can enjoy their bout of photoshooting too. Apart from cosplay, there are a substantial number of amazing artworks and doujin from talent local artists. Showcasing both amateur and professional works, visitors definitely would not be left disappointed.
So overall the event has something for everyone. Why not drop by event for this year? See you there. 🙂
