Largest DC Gathering in Malaysia

It was the already the most exciting DC Comic event ever to happen in Malaysia & we at Cosplay-Fun wanted to work in this to also break / set some records. So not only was this Batman 75th Anniversary a milestone event, cosplaying fans also make their mark & in not so many words set a standard for (so far):

THE LARGEST GATHERING OF DC COMIC CHARACTERS IN MALAYSIA

Please bear in mind that our team was limited to ONLY Batman & Gotham city villains as a guideline from Warner Bros. That meant NO Wonder Woman, NO Flash, NO Green Lantern 😦 But still the fans managed to pull out these numbers. Much respect & passion on display.

It is very rare that a western pop-culture icon gets this kind of epic scale celebration! And mind you, this is not a movie event promotion! We’ve seen a couple of LARGE mall promos for blockbuster summer titles before – Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at Mid Valley, Man of Steel at Mid Valley, Transformers at 1 Utama, Avengers: AoU at Mid Valley & most recently the T-70 Resistance X-Wing at Mid Valley. So this was a real MUST-GO & only option for pop-culture fans like us to geek-out!
