Batman 75th Anniversary Event 2014 – MALAYSIA
BATMAN is an international hero & Pop Culture ICON. He turns 75 this May 2014. It is hard to imagine that this character debuted all the way back in May 1939 in the immortalized Detective Comics #27.. a year after Superman was introduced to the world. To this date the popularity & out look of the Batman fandom, continues. Movies, comics, animation, merchandise, video games… keep the caped crusader young & ever evolving with yet new tales to tell of the Dark Knight.
I was very surprised to be called on board to work on this project & even excited when I heard what the occasion was! I’ve heard of many global tie-in events but for the first time Malaysia gets to participate in the celebration as we pay tribute to an icon from our childhood years. My first thought as a fan is “WOW we getting a chance to celebrate Bats Birthday”…. it’s gonna be awesome especially from the cosplayers point of view 🙂 Later I found out that Malaysia is one of the earliest countries to hold this event 🙂 And we are the first in Asia to unveil the Batman Hologram Experience 🙂
So here are the details of the event:
75 Years of Batman
28 May – 15 June 2014
Pavilion, Centre Court
The cosplay competition is going to be the major highlight of the entire event where about 30+ characters (Batman & Gotham City Villains) will be occupying the centre court area on 7 June 2014 from 2pm onwards. Hope to see you there.
