Anime characters come to life @ Comic Fiesta 2009 (Part II)

Fans of anime, manga and video games had a great time at the two-day Comic Fiesta 2009 held from December 19 - 20, 2009 at Sunway Pyramid Convention Hall, Petaling Jaya.

The fans came dressed up in elaborate and colourful costumes depicting their favourite anime or manga characters. They were great and look totally awesome in those costumes. Many of them went all out to dress up and a lot of time spent into the costumes. Its unbelievably stunning. The sheer amount of work put in and how beautifully it turned out.
