Photoblog: Cosplay day at Comic Fiesta 2012

The two-day Comic Fiesta 2012 attracted hordes of anime and manga fans from all over the country donning costumes and impersonation of their favourite characters from anime, manga, video games and movies.

Among them was Aishah Zaikri who came as the little girl with gatling gun from the online video game “Blade & Soul – Pohwaran”.

She said: “I find dressing up fun and I feel great getting all the attention.”

“We love these characters and just wanna have fun with it,” said Arif Marzuky who cosplayed as a US Delta Force soldier while his two friends Kiong Chen Neng cosplayed as a US Army 1st Calvary Division soldier and Mirza Bin Hassan cosplayed as a SS German officer.

Let us meet some of the cosplayers (costume players) who joined the Comic Fiesta 2012 held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) on December 22-23.
