Cosplay / Anime Event @ KL HELP College 2015

A close buddy invited me to visit his exhibition booth at HELP College last weekend. I drove all the way to Kota Damansara to discover that it was the C2AGE 2015 Event for Cosplay, Comics, Anime and Games which attracted thousands of young people. An old uncle like me walked around looking like a natural Yoda from Star Wars!



 1. The band played heavy metals and music that got my heart beating fast instead.




2. It was a pretty sight to see all the sporting Cosplay participants 
walking around with confidence.




3. These cars with TAKAO Anime Cartoons stole the show.



4. There were about 9 cars all dressed up with Anime Cartoons.




5. My friend Lee Wan Fang is HELP's fresh graduate 
who was flirting with 2 Zombie Nurses from the Morgues! 
I stole his FB photo & the cars to post here. 
Will post this up and show the world before notify him.




6. A cute lady with a huge sword.




7. I got myself updated that there is an active 
hobby club - SYNERGY Brick Maniacs




8. My friend Bruce Lee created this model of a Star Wars air base 
using tiny model bricks that looked like LEGO to me.




9. Another impressive full scale model by the SYNERGY's gang.




10. This is my friend Bruce Lee Chiau Han, father of one baby 
who plays his toys more than with the child. Tsk! Tsk!





11. A Cosplay Model proudly showed off his striking pose.




12. A smart looking soldier, ready to combat the enemies.



13. Cosplay shoppers browsing for some wares. 
A trendy sight that reminds me of being an old uncle now.




 14. There is a huge demand for such modern anime cartoon stuffs today 
while I am still eating toasted kaya bread with Kopi-O.





15. There were so many pedlars selling so much Anime Figurines 
and Cosplay memorabilia.
SK Thambee would love them for his display cabinet.




16. It was a nice morning to mingle with the young & trendy. 
Next time I will wear my own Yoda costume to parade.

  14. WTF?! Takao is a heavy cruiser battleship during WW2. How embarrassing it is for it to be cosplayed by a Myvi! Should just get a hot chick to cosplay as Takao the mental model!

    This is the real Takao in the anime:

  15. Wow! Very detailed work on the LEGOs.

    I've bumped into a cosplay event at Tropicana City Mall, not sure who organized that though. It's getting very popular here, cosplay. It used to be a very fringe thing when I was in uni, there are people doing it and they're almost like celebrities coz the people who do it are so few in number.

    Now it's a mainstream thing, which is good.
