I’m back home and getting into the swing of things. Am all ready for work tomorrow? Not quite but strangely, I don’t feel like not going to work 🙂 Today though was a day filled with the usual Sunday stuff and the Anime Festival Asia. It’s kinda like the Tokyo Anime Fair but way smaller. It was Cosplay galore … kinda like Harajuku decided to wake up in Singapore.
I actually learnt how big Cosplay is in Singapore some 8 years ago, when an animator who I worked with was completely into it. By day, she was a quiet animator who hardly made a peep. By night, she could be a possibility of any manga character you can think off.
I will not criticize, lest I have my own children who find themselves enthralled with the world of cosplay :p While I personally don’t enjoy the dressing up, I was completely enthralled with the potential of toy acquisition.
It didn’t take me long to set my eyes on what I wanted.
Having just returned from Aardman in Bristol and enjoying Mary and Max on the plane, I was excited about Domo Kun. A little Japanese stop motion character. No one quite knows where he is from or what he is but he sure is one cutie 🙂 So I decided a little Domo is what I’ll let myself have today.
And no sooner were we home, did he start creating havoc 🙂
