Big Bad Wolf Sale 2016 – CosplayFun Recon

Here are the good stuff that caught The Captain’s eye at this years @BigBadWolfBooks Big Bad Wolf Books Sale! Pop-Culture ICONs, Comics, Gaming, Cosplay, TV, Movies, Sci-Fi and classics!!

Here is the selection from DAY 0 aka Preview Day of this years Big Bad Wolf Sale! Do take advantage of the 24 hours opening times to comfortably browse, explore & shop. It’s very obvious to frequent goers that there a wider selection of books in each of the standard categories of the sale. Including a new area with Japanese & Thai books too!

Say good bye to the elaborate choice of food & drinks on the mezzanine floor! There is just only 1 source of food & drink which is a little cafe like place where the kids books usually is.

THE POP CULTURE GOODIES!! There are loads of new trade paper back comics or as they categorised it under – “Graphic Novels”, that we have not seen before. Most often we find the Marvel titles & comic strip cartoons but this year had a good deal of Dark Horse titles of old & new. DC was also decently represented with some nice hard cover collectibles like The War Years Superman & The War Years Wonder Woman, DC Super Villains etc. There is also the emergence of gaming ART books like The Art of: Uncharted trilogy, Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Fallout 4, Dragon Age; and reemergence of movie ART books – The Hobbit: BOFA, Book of Life, Penguins of Madagascar, Mr Peabody & Sherman, Blue Sky Studios etc. A lot of these goodies seem to be the similar stuff on offer at Book Xcess itself. However I could only manage to compare the Halo trade paper back comic & it was cheaper by RM 5. So it would be most gratifying for a bargain hunter / trift shopper if you knew the Book Xcess price then compare here at the BBW sale so your decision will be swift haha 

Here is our Top 3 Finds of Day 0!

  1. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Mini Comic Collection – What’s this? Well if you collected these He-Man figures from the 80’s, you will know that each figure had a mini comic inside. The figure you bought would star in that comic, in that particular version whether good or evil. I thought it was a very cool way of extending the fandom in between watching the cartoon series. Anyways, my mom threw away my collected of mini comics & this is a very sweet redemption. The surprise part is that I never knew they made a compilation like this till now!! It’s in my hands haha ^^ RM 30 WIN 
  2. Star Trek COSTUMES – Outpost Commander flashed this new book to us which he picked up last year in America. This book is a whopping US$40… times 4.43 to our Ringgit = not going to buy… untill now! This book was released in 2015 in which it would feature costumes from 5 decades of Star Trek including the soon to be released latest feature film (at that time) Star Trek Beyond! RM85 WIN! 
  3. Game of Thrones: A Pop Up guide to the Westeros – Now is was the coolest thing I found at the whole sale – Game of Thrones 3D POP up book! I don’t watch the series but this pop-up book was uber cool with ideas I have not yet seen in pop-up books! Each page has a center piece then mini pull-outs + mini pop up in the pull out. All 7 kingdoms are represented & then the magic of which it ALL folds out together! RM50 for this almost magical collectible! 

As always it’s a MUST-GO!.. at least once event hehe! The check out counters are arranged differently & the queue looks to be a killer long zig zag…. however it does move fairly quick.

*IMPORTANT TO KNOW when paying – just know that there are 2 MAIN queues, the left line is CASH which is a lot shorter than the right line Credit Card. CASH queue is an ‘L’ shape & the Credit Card queue is the zig zag zig zag. 

Check out our all the photos here on FB: Big Bag Wolf Sale 2016

Have a good one!!

Dreams & Imagination: Final Fantasy Tribute Concert – Malaysia

Suddenly! Yea man that’s how i felt about it hearing the news of such a concert! Who is this organiser doing this kind of event? I’ve been a fan of video game music for a long time in which got me involved with every single production of Video Games Live! in Malaysia – 2010, 2012 & most recently 2016. But other than VGL, there hasn’t been any other acts who were directly involved in the works performed in video games. Yes, our skillful local talents have put on some great shows, but I am aiming higher will the ‘dreams & imagination’ of meeting the folks who have actually worked ON or IN the actual games that we loved so much. From what I remember here some video music hall of fame to have step foot in Malaysia for performances: Mr. Guinness Book of Records Video Games TOMMY TALLARICO aka Mr. Video Games Live, awarded nominated composer Mr. Jack Wall aka Mr. Mass Effect  1 & 2 or aka Mr. COD Black Ops 2 & 3, Mr. Norihiko Hibino aka Mr. Snake Eater from Metal Gear Solid 3 (MGS 2 – 4, Peace Walker, Portable Ops / Zone of Enders 1 & 2 / Bayonetta 1 & 2),  Ms. Eimear Noone aka Ms. Blizzard! (WoW, Starcraft 2 & Diablo 3) aka Ms. Zelda Conductor! Any other video game music celebrity I missed out? Please share with me🙂

So the folks to thank for organising this event is is none other than the 2nd largest ACG event in Malaysia…. the folks from Animangaki! Trying a hand at something new AMG Chief decided to take a shot at the severe lack in the ACG scene, which is the music arena of Japanese Pop culture or rather pop culture in general aka video game music.

Final Fantasy is a beloved franchise with a heart warming back story of how a last ditch effort by a gaming company, which was schedule to shut down, decided to release their FINAL game ever… rightly titled their FINAL Fantasy. And because of it’s enormous success is now a colossal gaming company in the world! 29 years later to date… we are just a few hours away from the released of the latest chapter – FINAL FANTASY XV in which it’s lead game designer is none other than Malaysia’s proudest Mr. Wan Hazmer!

=========================

Now back to the concert! Well if you were hoping for a full orchestra, I’m sorry but this is not the concert you were expecting. Being true to the game, Final Fantasy 1 was created in 1987 & gaming capacity back then was only 8-bits. That was the entire capacity of of what the home console could deliver! You wanna talk about polyphonic… I think poly is too many…maybe the max 4 sounds could be played at one time xD I am just guessing, CITATION needed here hehe. Anyways game music back then couldnt be fully realized or recreated as how the composers envisioned it… but now! It can & has and will continue to be represented. So to have Final Fantasy music presented on a single grand piano is a very unique acoustic experience in itself.

So who are these folks – Nathan is multi-talented artist hailing from the land down under Australia. He is a singer, song writer, composer, photographer who also has a passion for cosplay photography which he calls his Real Time Story Project in which he “stars his friends in a real time story”! Just in this phrase alone I can imagine him being a very warm-buddy stylish lyricist! Being a Aussie musician & a Sydney local… and graduating from Sydney Uni… I can imagine it being a dream come to be able to perform to a sold out crowd at the Sydney Opera house!! Nathan’s FB page has 360,000 likes & has his own website + merchandise. Check out the links below.

His special guest for this very first Malaysian Concert is this lovely Japanese lady name Joelle Strother! She is an American born Japanese singer who is best known for her work on Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2. She provided vocals for several Final Fantasy tracks including “Plains of Eterniry”, “Starting Over”, “Ruined Hometown Hometown” and “Yuel’s Theme”.  If you’re a J-Rock fan you also might know her vocals on the Sound Horizon track Bravely Default! Huhu! She is gearing up for her big concert next year in her home town of Akita, Japan!

Follow her on twitter: http://www.twitter.com/joellevoice

Honestly, Bentley Auditorium is a very posh & high end location for a concert! Very nice! I have not been here in a long time but the last time I was… it was for a very nostalgic. Back in 2011, Bentley Auditorium was the venue for the return of the Malaysian made JROCK event – JROCK no Tamashii! Anyways, so this is a beautiful & apt venue for a rock concert or an up-close & personal Piano concerto!

There were 2 show, one at 3:30pm and the other at 8pm. I was fortunate to get an early look for the concert by attending the 3:30pm show. The concerts song list was very FF driven and Nathan actually divided them into Disc 1 – Disc 4 segments😀 He also added his own flair to a piano concerto by having some fun & game stops like the “CHOICE MOMENTS” in the RPG haha Blue or Red Ball! On and off Joelle would come on stage in a radiant emerald green dress to provide the soulful vocals! All the world famous Final Fantasy themes were covered in this 2 hour concert! From the Prelude to Final Fantasy to Aerith’s Theme, Liberi Fatali, One Winged Angel… the first segment ended with Joelle serenating us with Suteki Da Ne (FFX).

The matinee was great but I heard the evening show was even better with a sold out crowd! I think it is a great effort by the folks behind Animangaki. A big thanks to you all who bought tickets, bought merchandise to support these artiste & the organisers. As I mentioned at the Iori Nomizu Voice Actor event, the fate of such future events weights on the success of this current one. This has so far been the motto of the Japanese organisers & ‘big boss’ whom I’ve met. I hope to see more exciting expansion from them in the future! Thank you for the invite & gambateh in 2017!!

Captain America Shield Unboxed

Hi everyone,

Just posting a video because I was very excited to unboxing of my Marvel Legends Captain America shield by Hasbro aka ‘The Plastic’ version. This is shield  is 24″ or 60cm in diameter and is made of composite plastic.

As you may know I’ve been a big fan of Captain America since reading the comics in the 80’s. There never has been enough decent collectibles let alone affordable until the emergence of the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Captain America. *tears of joy* Finally they got it right! (mostly there) Compared to the others… the others didn’t exist lah! hehe

I’ve seen those Rubies & Disguise stuff… very affordable. Then I’ve seen the King Arts & custom made shield by TheRPF folks. All were good but of course you get what you pay for. So finally there is a mid range priced shield from the licensee who had the license to create it ALL THIS WHILE (but didn’t) till now. So I’m gonna check it out! Anyhow cheap was not “THAT” cheap any… I needed 2 installments to purchase this!

So here is a short review & comparison to other budget Captain America shields.

Hope you all like it. Thank you. #CaptainAmerica #Hasbro #Unboxing #MarvelLegends

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Midnight Launch – Malaysia

Just when I was thinking… it’s been a big gap from the last gaming event, the Uncharted 4 midnight launch Malaysia, came the news of the launch of the next chapter in the EPIC first person shooter games – Call of Duty! Well for me I wasn’t feeling the gap that much because I managed to head down to Singapore for South East Asia’s premiere gaming event -Game Start Asia 2016! huhu That was fun & yet another LEGIT “Convention” in Singapore.

Anyhow I was starting to feeling the gap for the Malaysian friends & fans as maybe its more than time to get out & about again! Klang Valley folks were fortunate get a bonus *Pokemon Go Launch (fan event) which was parked at the recent Cosplay Corner. But other than that it was kinda quiet. Then came the news from PLAY Interactive of confirmed date, time & VENUE of the next game launch. Woo hoo! Great timing.

*On another note, thanks to the guys (fan event) who were diligent & relentless (I might add) at pursuing official endorsement for the local 3DS Community – we have the chance to experience a bonus gaming event later this month. More of that in the next article!*

Now, Call of Duty & Medal of Honour were games I thoroughly enjoyed playing on the Playstation 2 (PS2). It really fueled my undiscovered passion for first person shooters & the desire to be a head-shot sniper! xD The only things to fear in the early games were MG42 & tanks. Anyhow after those were over & the life of the PS2 had end I had no desire nor the extra funds to buy the next gen console (then) Playstation 3. Then while hanging out at the uber cool – Outpost Cafe at Cineleisure Damansara (now E@curve), good friend of mine ask to play the latest rendition of Call of Duty called Modern Warfare. OMG I got hooked & just had to get a PS3 to play this game & have continued ever since. No Playstation 4 for me yet… but I guess some where down the line.

==========================

So yet another EPIC franchise launches it next chapter & HURRAY for the local fans & friends that we get to get out & geek a out again! 

Looks like the organisers like Sunway Pyramid! But the cool twist this time is that it would take place in GALACTIC LASER, Sunway Pyramid! The theme made sense, the place was relevant & the space was good! Great choice guys!

So folks who had pre-ordered their game could come to the event to pick up their game as soon as the stroke of midnight. By pre-ordering you got 5 extra goodies to take home – a movie size 2-sided glossy poster, a tee shirt,  a tactical themed watch, Bonus Map “Terminal” and Zombies in Spaceland!

There were 3 bundle of the game:
1) Standard Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc)
2) Legacy Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc) + Modern Warfare Remastered (Digital Download)
3) Legacy Pro Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc) + Modern Warfare Remastered (Digital Download) + Season Pass + Collectible Steelbook + Digital Game Soundtrack + Additional Digital Content 

 

BONUS TREAT
For those who attended there were 2 major bonus treats! First it was the PLAY & Redeem challenges. You needed to complete 4 simple tasks to get 4 stamps on your card in which you could later redeem a Playstation goodie bag :) 

The next treat was epic – all attendees would get the chance to play Galactic Laser … team group death-match for free!! All you had to do was to line up & wait your turn. Of course each game last 10 minutes so it was limited to how much time that was available for everyone to play. But all in all it had the right theme & the right GAMERS!

For the full album of photos go to our FB album: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Midnight Launch – Malaysia

*HINT*: A little blue bird told me that there will another Playstation 4 title launch event before the month is over!! So we gamers get 3x more in November! Reward for waiting so long? Maybe hohoho!

A BIG thanks to PLAY Interactive Asia & Playstation Asia  for organising this event. Will be looking forward to the next one!

Event List 2016


Hi Everyone! Welcome to 2016!!

Thank you for the 94,000+ visit to our little blog. The flag counter on the right is now 30 months old has continued to be a good monitor to see where you folks are from. Even more to gauge the number of new first time visitors here. Cosplay-Fun was created to support & promote cosplay in Malaysia first… and I’m very glad hasn’t stopped there in just Malaysia. The is now our 6th year & with the exponential growth in number of cosplayers… I think about 60% of cosplayers will even remember who The Captain cosplayed let alone who The Captain is. Ironically, 2016 will officially mark my 10th year in the cosplay community! allen cosplay

Anyways, starting & running this effort was never about becoming famous… or popular or even rich! It was about encouraging a passionate, positive & often misunderstood culture of cosplay. And when I mean cosplay I want to include everyone… from the guy with a life-presever + cap… posing like he is ‘out-of-time’ (Marty McFly), to the girl in an orange skirt + turtle neck sweater & black frame glasses (Velma from Scooby Doo) to the Mikasa (AoT), Miku, Luffy, Naruto, Mecha – the anime folks!

With this heart in mind Cosplay-Fun has delved into many facets of the community & scene. By far, our most exciting but challenging tasks was strifing to do what has not been done before example being the First Ever Cosplay Contingent to march in the Hari Wilayah Parade! Gathering the largest number of Batman & Gotham City villains at an official DC event etc. But on the other hand we also paid the price for attempting such things. The greatest contention comes from the very community you are helping! How typical?

Anyways, enough of the struggles, battles & travel tales of Obi Wan Kenobi – it’s time for Old Hermit Ben haha here is the new spiffy event list for 2015. It looks kind of short now but believe me there will be much added to the list. #MalaysiaACGEventsList2016 #EventsList2016 #CosplayEvents2016 #MalaysiaCosplay2016 #PopCultureEvents

Please come back to this page to check as the list will be updated from time to time & the link might change🙂 Please support & ‘LIKE’ our FB page to get more frequent updates.

As usual the events listed in GREY are NOT YET CONFIRMED or TO BE ANNOUNCED but we are hoping they will have them again this year🙂 Do feel free to contact us [cosplayfun.my@gmail.com] if you would like your event to be listed or unlisted. We want to give the community something to look forward too🙂

THANKS FOR A GREAT 2015 & HERE’S TO A BETTER 2016!!
