The 9th Toy & Comic Fair, Place Where The Inner Child Goes

The-Jakarta-9th-Toys-and-Comic-Fair-2013

Last week I went to the 9th Toy & Comic Fair. There always toy fair here & there, now & then but this is the annual biggest one there is. I admit that I went there with thinnest enthusiast since I don’t looking something in particular but I always know that this annual fair always “awe” me & this year serves that purpose just right.

Since I don’t look something specific, I just strolling around looking random stuff but there always many things caught my eyes (I ended up buying Batpod with Catwoman figure 1:25 scale & Venom Gashapon, oh also some paper art character he he).

It came to me why did I visit this fair if I don’t have anything to search? Then after came to this “Nerd-vana” I realize that the very reason why I always came is cuz this is the place where I think that I belong, the place where everyone else can become kid again (you won’t believe how many people in there, it’s literally hard to breath. Also you won’t believe the range of cosplayer this year, just wait).

So, let me just share some of my favorite moments he he (sorry for the bad photo, I use my CCTV lenses just for fun but that lenses is hard to handle he he):

Since this show is in Jakarta – Indonesia, cool to see local character as Ramayana (though it’s actually from India & modified to suits Indonesian culture) or Si Buta dari Goa Hantu (free translation: The blind guy from the ghost cave) still have some spot in this fair.

If Harlem Shake is an excuse to went full retard for 30 seconds, Toy & Comic Fair is not an excuse, but a statement that we all have that childish side. Some of us not afraid to show that we still love that moments, that stuffs from our childhood. This is the place where our child goes, where some purity & innocence can be preserved he he.

PS : This guy deserves a credit for the most annoying & entertaining cosplayer he he

This horse face is annoying, I don't know he is a contestant or just passerby
