Visual Arts Expo 2017 – Preview

July marks that we have reached the middle of 2017 and if you’re a fan of Anime – illustration, animation, character design, music composition…. Then you should be a fan of VAX! VAX is back!! Back again! VAX stands for the Visual Arts Expo. This event debut 2 years ago and has not lost a step in trying to deliver a wholistic experience of the Anime as a production… as a work of art… visual arts. On the first year they brought in Studio Gainax co-founder Hiroyuki Yamaga, Macross creator Shoji Kawamori, music artiste Aimee B, Back-On – full list here (VAX Guest Album 2015). Year 2 saw them host Mika Kobayashi, Tetsuro Shimaguchi, illustrator Itaru Hinoue, composer Oriti Shinji – full list here (VAX Guest Album 2016).

Managed to catch Kawamori-san in his free time!

Let’s also not forget about the most unique feature at VAX (in our opinion) – SIP aka Special Interest Panel. Many events are community based, organised by community, run by community made for the community…. But so far VAX is the only one to give the fan community a voice & a stage! Fans & friends can apply for the time slots to present talks on their favourite topics: Japanese Idol Group Love Lieve, Kuroshitsuji, Gundam Saga, Pop Culture Conventions etc. As much as the special guest list is really exciting, the Special Interest Panels are really the heart & soul of VAX! (our opinon).

Here is the official press release for this year’s event! We’re just waiting now for the final schedule to start planning our visit!! How you got your tickets yet??

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

Expand your creativity horizon at Visual Arts Expo 2017

Visual Arts Expo 2017 returns with a new line-up of content, tailored for everyone and anyone interested in the creative arts

 

Kuala Lumpur: – The annual Visual Arts Expo (also known as VAX2017) is back again for the third year to spread and invite creative-minded people to collaborate and network with other content creators and the public. This year, VAX2017 will be opening its doors to the public at a new location in the heart of Selangor. VAX2017 aims to be the one-stop location for creatives to gather and present to all parties their ideas and portfolios, and find the opportunity to expand their business and services to reach into larger markets outside of Malaysia.

The expo targets an audience of school leavers, fresh graduates, young adults and entrepreneurs, and will present a wealth of content in various forms – which includes animation, comics, video games and music. These contents will then be shared with visitors, which includes creative industry players from Japan, America and Europe – and ultimately be used by these professionals as part of their own content and future projects.

“As we approach our third year, VAX 2017 will further build upon the success it has garnered from the previous two editions of the event to further connect and nurture relationships – especially between the local creative industry players, like-minded partners from overseas, as well as local audiences to showcase their talents and products under their wings.

Thanks to local successes such as Les Copaque and Lemon Sky Studios, Malaysian creative professionals are getting propelled to the world stage, and we at VAX 2017 will be supporting them with full gusto, as well as helping budding creative-content producers to showcase their talent on our own platform,” says Fazri Nuha, Project Director for VAX.

VAX 2017 targets an audience of school leavers, fresh graduates, young adults and entrepreneurs, and will present the content in various forms – which includes animation, comics, video games and music. The staple of the event – Special Interest Panels – will be held during the two-day event, where fans from all walks of life can come in and present their content to be shared with the public.

For this year’s edition, the guest speakers for VAX 2017 will include Masumoto Kazuya from Studio Trigger, whose portfolio includes titles such as Kill la Kill and Tengen Toppa Guren Lagann. Studio Trigger will be opening a gallery of artwork from Kill la Kill during the two-day event for attendees to check out the art from the acclaimed studio. Also attending VAX2017 is Ito Noriko, Animation Supervisor from Studio MAPPA, who was worked on titles such as Punchline and YURI!!! On Ice

Hiramatsu Tadahashi is also one of the notable guests attending VAX2017. He has worked on big named anime such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Space Dandy and also Yuri!!! On Ice as part of his portfolio. He is also the character designer for the anime Yuri!!! On Ice

Masafumi “Pierre” Sugiura, a notable independent script and scenario writer in the Japanese animation industry – who has worked in shows such as Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru and Barakamon – is also attending this year’s edition of VAX and will be sharing his experience in working with the industry through a panel as well as a closed-door portfolio review session.  To close the event, Ai “AiRI”Miyake will be sharing her music on stage with the guests attending VAX2017. Her notable works includes the theme songs for shows such as Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon and Gundam Build Fighters

VAX2017 will be a two-day event, running from the 21 and 22 of July 2017, at the Shah Alam Convention Centre (SACC). Tickets for the event will be priced at RM 25 per day for walk-in visitors, or RM 40 for early bird tickets when purchased online. Also available for purchase are two special tiers exclusive tickets, the Silver Pass and the Gold Pass. These passes give the bearer special perks and gifts along when they are purchased from VAX2017, which includes exclusive meet & greet chance, limited edition event swag and more. All tickets are available for purchase from the official website, with several of the tickets available for a limited time only:

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!!

VAX 2016 – Tetsuro Shimaguchi

Remember those of you who are tired of the average ACG event have asked for something else? Well VAX (Visual Arts Expo) is certainly something else!

They debut last year with such renowned folks like Studio Gainax founder Horiyuki Yamaga, Satelight Inc. Managing Director Shoji Kawamori aka the creator of Macross (and much of Transformers G1), singer Aimee Blackschleger etc. Oh you didn’t hear about this event? Ok, so I hope you all will make it this year? #VAX2016 takes place this weekend 3 – 5 June at 15th Flr, Kenanga Wholesale City Fashion Mall (same location as the Xpax Fantasy Fest).

So the story so far, VAX is known for having renowned guest, they allow us, the folks in Malaysia to reach out to their guest via portfolio reviews, they allow Malaysia companies to reach out to their overseas guest via B2B Friday and they allocate slots for PANELS aka Special Interest Panels (SIP) for us local folks to share our passion huhu! Very cool!

VAX has a new website: http://www.vax.asia 

So what I personally wanna shout out today is about Mr. Tetsuro Shimaguchi. In short he is the man who choreographed the Samurai sword fights from the Quentin Tarantino cult classic Kill Bill Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. Mr. Tarantino was so excited working with him that he just decided on whim to put in the movie too. 

So Mr. Tetsuro Shimaguchi is featured in Kill Bill Vol.1 as CRAZY 88#1 aka Miki, the first henchmen of O’ren Ishii (Lucy Liu). If you haven’t watched it, Miki#1 is the first to die in the fight at the House of Blue Leaves. But what most people won’t know is that he had to die early so he could continue choreographing the others through the epic fight scene! 

Just so not to be branded as partial, there were other sword specialist choreographers in the movie Kill Bill. Mr. Tarantino wanted a wide variety to styles in the movie. So Ms. Uma Thurman aka The Bride moves were choreographed & stylized Mr. Shimaguchi. For Lucy Liu’s character, Mr. Tarantino wanted a more chinese style of fighting in which he got another sword specialist from Hong Kong. 

A little love note from Lucy Liu

Tetsuro Shimaguchi was born in Saitama prefecture in Japan and graduated from Nihon University College of Arts. After a lot of experience in theater activities such as kabuki, he established “Kengishu Kamui” and heads up a team. In 1998, he formed a Samurai Sword Art group named KAMUI. Now with KAMUI, he combines his experiences in the theater to puts on performances mixed with beauty of form, acting and martial arts.

Tetsuro Shimaguchi created KENGIDO that means “The Way of Samurai” = swordplay combined with beauty of form. He has opened dojos to teach KENGIDO in Japan, America and Europe. This activity to introduce Japanese SAMURAI culture has been reported by mass media all over the world. 

I always felt ‘much of the Jedi was made from the Samurai’. And what was always in awe of the code, discipline, conduct… all that is Bushido. So though the Jedi & the force is an amalgamation of sci-fi, fantasy, George Lucas & Samurai it is so clear to me that the closest embodiment of the Jedi in reality are the samurai.

A Fan & Tetsuro at Comicpalooza perhaps all too prophetic?

So as one of the earliest supporters in the the founding of Fight Saber (fightsaber.com), which is the only Lucasfilm-recognized lightsaber performance organization, and authority on lightsaber combat in Southeast Asia, I am calling out to all those friends & fans of lightsaber combat, lightsaber choreography, fight coordinators…etc Come to Visual Arts Expo (VAX) 2016 to look for this man. Watch his performance, hear him speak… you will surely pick up something… beauty of form, acting, martial arts that will add to your skill set and better yet even enrich your soul… prosper your spirit!

Also, if you’re a geek like me – bring your Kill Bill DVD / Blu-Ray, Neca figure, black mask, bokken, samurai sword stand… etc for him to autograph too 🙂

Hope to see you all there at #VAX2016

VAX is Back for 2016

The 2015 home grown debut event – Visual Arts Expo (VAX) returns in 2016. Sigh of relief… and now the excitement BUILDS. The folks at VAX have been releasing guest info & other content thru the months and with less than a month away… it’s going to be another special + diverse Visual Arts events! Strike 1 for the home team & 2 for the return of a debut event!

One of the biggest news from VAX is the change of venue from last years Mines International Exhibition & Convention Centre to the STARXPO at Kenanga Wholesale City Fashion Mall!

Hahaha just as the buzz from the leaked CF2016 venue dies down… the 2016 venue for VAX has not raised any buzz from what I know. XPAX Fantasy Fest goers will know this place well. The finale event has taken place here the past 2 years. High ceiling – eco friendly – go green hall design will have it’s pros & cons… but The Captain is hoping that all the cosplay folks don’t miss the MOST AMAZING PART of having this event here in Kenanga Wholesale City Fashion Mall! Yes, the hint is in the name.

GUYS it’s WHOLESALE… MALL!! Lotsa (applicable) cosplay stuff… FASHION related stuff for good price and gets cheaper in quantity. And seriously… u don’t have to buy like 50 or 100 pieces… the ‘wholesale’ (discounted) prices start from as little as 3 items… sometimes even 3 of any items entitles you all to the ‘wholesale’ prices!! I think all of you who were 50/50 on going to VAX should SERIOUSLY consider this factor and go to VAX + ‘pakat’ with your friends to buy cosplay stuff!! I’ve bought lotsa stuff from this place… collectibles, military / tactical gear, gifts, children wear and the most prized discovery: Pemborong Cermin Mata BIG EYE. This place has a WIDE variety of sun glasses (very common) but also a variety of spectacle frames & styles for pop-fashion. This place has equipped & enhanced my cosplay of Tony Stark, Commissioner James Gordon, Noah Bennet (Heroes TV series) & a few more to come. Prices were good but unfortunately I wasn’t buying in bulk or else it would be better. Most cosplayers will know when you cosplay real life characters (with actor references) any prop that looks accurate will enhance the likeness to your character AND most of us will fall short when it comes to facial features. Anything short of a helmet or mask takes the likeness aka ‘magic of cosplay’ away so I know if u can get the right facial hair, i.e. mustache / beard / goatee or spectacle frames… is a BIG PLUS!!

Anyhow, so friends & fans… do check it out. There are so many options in this very mall that I’m sure there is something for every cosplayer… or something just to enhance your daily swag! You are already going to VAX2016 so go check it out. It is a rare 2 in 1 treat! Here is the link to their website, go browse their Store Directory!

Ok, here’s a recap of whats already been announced for #VAX2016. I’m sure the team has more install for all of you all!! huhu!

Event List 2015

Thank you for 84,000 visits to our little blog. The flag counter, which was added just 18 months ago, has been a good monitor to see where you folks are from. Cosplay-Fun was created to support & promote cosplay in Malaysia first… and I’m very glad hasn’t stopped there. The numbers from the flag counter app has been a constant encouragement, to the me especially. It is good to know that despite only 5,500+ following our Facebook Page… there are about 40,000+ Malaysians visiting this blog. I’m also glad to see our neighbours Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and further off Australia (Aussie Aussie Aussie) noticing us. A real pleasant surprise is that the 2nd most viewers to our blog hail all the way from the US of A!! Not forgetting… kudos to Europe too!! flag counter

Anyways, 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.

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 🙂

“Boruto: The Movie” Premiere Event Malaysia

When I first heard of this at Visual Arts Expo 2015 (VAX2015) I wasn’t sure what it was. So went back & did some google-ing. Then I read a comment on FB that someone thought it was a parody since the Naruto series has ended. Well it would have made sense… & phew! I guess I was not alone. But on the other hand there were 2x 100% things I did know –

1) Naruto is such a beloved series thru the ages & their fans transcend being just a teenagers past time. No way they would dishonour the memory or such an iconic series with a parody… and also I think Kishimoto Sensei would allow it either haha!

2) GSC Movies has been bringing in key anime movies since last year. And this year they have doing it in a vengeance, starting with… none other than Naruto The Last: Movie.

So all in all it was good news to hear of Boruto The Movie & it has been a great for Japanese Anime & live action movies in Malaysian cinemas thanks to Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC). Follow their FB page here – GSC MOVIES for more exciting news. This Naruto Premiere & Gathering is only the beginning of what is to come. A MAJOR title will coming to Malaysia in 2016… stay tuned for the news. Rest assured we are in the loop too 🙂
