AFA 2013, Marble Wonderland Collection Singapore

8:48 PM claire 0 Comments

Thank you AFA for the media passes this year! So glad that the crowd control, layout of the booths and backstage access were improved tremendously from last year, so well done organizers!! I like checking out AFA because you get to see a different side of Singapore, check out the latest anime, and of course, my favourite would be checking out the fashion and makeup of Japanese girls through the Marble Wonderland Collection!

This year's AFA had an amazing opportunity for a lucky winner to get an all expenses paid trip to Japan to be the voice for one of their characters in the anime "Knights of Sidonia"!! I signed up just for kicks but totally did not expect the public speaking aspect. We had to read three parts of the script in front of an audience!

I think they were looking for girls who put a lot of emotions in their voice and can speak japanese and I was completely unprepared and nervous so I don't think I did well. Oh well it was a fun chance to add XP points to my public speaking!

Here's some snapshots I took while I was there on Saturday.

Cute girl in a yukata, check.

Long queues to get a chance to buy limited edition collectibles, check.

yThis booth by Aoyama 3D Salon caught my eye because you can print a 3D model of anything by using a scanner!! They were demonstrating the scan process on volunteers, and their 3D printer prints everything down to the colour. Amazing right! It was also on sale specially for AFA brought by Sanfride inc.

Japanese celebrities in town just to promote their latest anime series, check!

Saw this lady with a beautiful and elaborate costume at Rakuten and just had to take a photo with her! They were also giving away Brands Collagen samples. Yay!

This 1:1 scale titan head freaked the crap outta me. Pretty sure other people were afraid of it too. Not going to enlarge this picture but if you're interested you can click on it for a better view!

I really applaud these people who take so much time and effort to make a costume from scratch!! It must take a lot of endurance, and really good sewing skills, or a pro sewing machine at least.

Popped by the Atelier Royale to support Yutaki!! This year the maid and butler cafe combine spaces to serve delicious food for guests of AFA. Not just any maid or butler, but super cute girls and handsome guys that were handpicked just for the job!

Was running out of time so I headed to the Marble Wonderland Collection Fashion show and performance

Asia Kawaii Way - the way to make girls "Kawaii" We saw Hachioji P known as the track maker of Hatsune Miku, 217 &Miume as dancers striking popularity on video sites and twins Amiaya with their concept of Tokyo pop.

From the fashion aspect, Marble Wonderland Collection introduces Japanese girls' fashion in three main areas - Harajuku, Shibuya and Akihabara!

Ladies on the catwalk: Misako Aoki, pioneer of Lolita fashion and officially appointed as Kawaii ambassador by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Natsumi Saito and Tenchim, popular models of street fashion, and Alodia Gosiengfiao (how cool is the name Alodia?!) who has 2.31 million likes on Facebook and has been cosplaying since she was 15.

After the show, I went to check out the Asia Kawaii Way corner :)

We were in for a treat! Some of these products were not even available in Singapore!! Many people asked about purchasing them but were disappointed.

Koji had their variety of Dolly Wink eyelashes, Tutti showcased their colour contact lenses with different series to make your eyes larger, cuter, and more mesmorizing. Of course, no Japanese launch would be complete without FEAT's strong fiber which turns single eyelids into double ones. Girls also tried out Homei's nail decoration and Kotsuban Makutsubo Belt which boasts it's a perfect diet program!

 Shades from Shine, really unique designs using chains and rhinestones!! If you've got attitude this will complete your look.

Thank you AFA and Asia Kawaii Way! I bought Priscila wigs hehe

Leaving you with a video of the Marble Wonderland collection snippets video. See you at AFA next year!
