    Here! Copy paste from digital version.

    Thousands of anime-loving people, some clad in elaborate costumes, turned up at the inaugural Anime Festival Asia 2008 over the weekend.

    They filled two expansive exhibition halls at the Suntec Convention Centre, transforming the place into a cartoon fantasy wonderland.

    The organisers of the two-day event, communications agencies I-Promo and Dentsu Singapore, said the event sold more than 5,000 tickets in the first hour last Saturday, but were unable to provide the final tally of visitors by press time.

    But they said that crowds of anime fans and toy collectors began gathering outside the convention centre at 6am on Saturday morning, four hours before the doors were supposed to open.

    Anime merchandise booth Kareshi Kanojyo no Mise, which has a store in Sunshine Plaza, had long queues from the moment exhibition doors swung open. It sold all its new-release posters, postcard sets and files from anime series Little Busters in the first hour.

    Other booths selling collectibles from leading toy manufacturer Bandai and anime-inspired Gundam model robots, sold out their offerings by lunch time last Saturday. These included 480 pieces of Bandai collectible Saint Seiya Saint Cloth Myth, an action figure from the manga and anime series Saint Seiya, priced at $159.95.

    Festival director Shawn Chin, 35, an account director with Dentsu Singapore, said: 'We knew anime was strong in Singapore, but the turnout surpassed our expectations.'

    The festival showcased newly released anime merchandise, anime screenings, competitions for anime-inspired costumes, anime character model-kit designs and live shows.

    About 2,000 visitors packed the floor area in front of the stage when 60-year-old Gundam designer Kunio Okawara spoke about his model robots. Hundreds lined up just to get his autograph.

    Gundam fan Roy Teo, 18, a student, said: 'It was a privilege just to listen to the man behind the models.'

    Another highlight of the festival was a cosplay competition. Cosplay, an abbreviation for the term 'costume play', is the act of dressing up and acting out fantasy characters, often from Japanese manga cartoons.

    Yesterday afternoon, 20 competitive cosplayers performed scenes from their respective anime series for three to four minutes each.

    A three-member Singaporean team, comprising Sim Teck Wee, Ho Yuan Yuan and Jasmine Tan, all of whom dressed up as anime characters from the series Code Geass, won the competition.

    One of the three judges, founder of the Singapore Cosplay Club and art director of Chivarly Entertainment Studios, Mr Takahan Tan, 33, said: 'Their performance had an interesting storyline that was both funny and entertaining.

    'Their costumes were also well-balanced. Some costumes are very elaborate but do not allow cosplayers much movement. Theirs were well designed and elaborate.'

    Cosplayers usually spend anywhere between $20 and $2,000 on their costumes, which are either tailored or bought off the rack.

    Visitors with cameras snapped away frantically whenever cosplayers struck up poses. Some visitors even asked to have their pictures taken with these anime-inspired characters.

    Malaysian student Kamal Huzairi, 19, who went as Gintoki, an easy-going character from the anime series Gintama, said: 'Cosplaying is interesting because of the characters you take on. At events, you also get to meet new people who can share with you how they make their costumes and props.'

    The festival also drew many first-time cosplayers.

    One of them was student Tan Ai Ling, 14, who was dressed as the Female Champion from Korean online game Ragnarok Online.

    She wore a sleeveless satin outfit with gold trimming and a bejewelled belt which she sourced online. The whole outfit cost her over $110.

    Asked why she decided to dress up, she said: 'Even though my character is based on a Korean online game and not Japanese anime, it is still ultimately Asian and I wanted to show people that.'

    Student Goh Jin Tong, 14, is looking forward to next year's Anime Festival Asia.

    'I can't afford to buy collectibles or Gundam today, but I will save up for next year's festival.'
