Comic Fiesta 2010


Comic Fiesta began as a two-day event in celebration of the ACG culture. We wanted to bring together the Malaysian ACG (Anime, Comics & Games) community, so that fans will be able to get together, interact and help expand the creative pool of the community. At the time, the ACG culture was just beginning to take root in Malaysia, and Comic Fiesta was one of the rare conventions where fans and public alike could come together and celebrate its creative diversity.
From our humble beginnings at the Selangor Chinese Assembly hall, Comic Fiesta has now become the go-to source for the best and the most innovative ideas in the local ACG community. From just a few hundred visitors in a small community hall in Kuala Lumpur, we have grown by leaps and bounds, with the pulling power to attract almost 8,000 visitors in our latest iteration of Comic Fiesta held at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre. We have become the premier ACG event in Malaysia, and we will only grow bigger and bolder in the times to come.
We are made up of volunteers through and through, coming together to create an avenue where local talents in comics, animation and cosplay can come together, interact and come up with new and exciting ideas to push the creative development industry in Malaysia forward.
This is Comic Fiesta.
By fans, for fans.
so yes i went to this comic fiesta , being an anime/manga/japan fan, its a must actually, these events are a place for people of these interest to gather around and know each other, much through suiting up to their favourite characters of an anime or such, here is a little fact about cosplay

Cosplay (コスプレ kosupure?), short for "costume play",[1] is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Characters are often[citation needed] drawn from popular fiction in Japan. Favorite sources include mangaanimetokusatsu,comic booksgraphic novelsvideo gameshentai and fantasy movies. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa.
Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered around role play. A broader use of the term cosplay applies it to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.

• Assignments are often considered the burden on the mind of students not giving them ample time for any other activities. Lack of time denies students from performing their beloved hobbies, ceasing them from participating in any sports, cultural affairs. Hence, no overall growth for them. Online Assignment help
