AFA (Anime Festival Asia) is one event that I was really looking forward to last year since I was in Singapore at the time. The hubby and I initially planned to attend the event back in 2011 but because of the hubby’s schedule, we had to postpone our Singapore trip and we didn’t get to go.
It was held at the Singapore Expo and there were a LOT of people who attended the event. Some people traveled to Singapore from different countries just to attend the AFA. While there were those who were there for the concerts, Jay and I were just there to explore, check out the merchandises, events and the cosplayers. We’ve never been fond of concerts but hearing my teammate’s stories about the Saturday concert made me wish I was also able to attend.
The Saturday event was specially full of people with long lines from different booths, most specifically the Sword Art Online merchandise shop. I had no idea that there were so many people actually willing to wait in line for hours just to get hold of some items. The Sunday event on the other hand had more cosplayers around, which made it more fun for me since I get to take photos of them. Since the place was not as jampacked as the day before, we also got to explore it more without having to bump into people every five seconds.
Here are some of the photos I was able to save for this post…
