Hong Kong Comics Festival 2005: Cosplay Contest, Game Girl Contest, Japanese Comics Mega Store, Dance competition: Hip-Hop, Jazz, B-Boy. Lots of pictures inside!


Every year, the Comics Festival is taking place in Hong Kong for 5 days, during which several events are shown to the public.


This year's HK Comic festival fair has been of composed of Comics, Toys and Goodies stores. But as usually, the most awaited event has certainly been the Cosplay Contest where many people came dressed like their favourite anime or comic hero to demonstrate their outfits and pose with their friends to have one's picture taken.

Apart from the Comic Festival, a few game developers and publishers such as Microsoft and Bandai were present with their own booth to show a few new titles, including various Chinese RPGs and online PC games. Of course not to be missed at any of such booth were the pretty booth girls that were giving away free gifts, such as "Dead or Alive Ultimate" goods, Xbox keychains, demo cds and more.

Several game competitions were held (including Winning Eleven and PC games like Counterstrike, Warcraft and others) as well as the famous Game Girl Contest , where 12 girls were playing videogames against each other to be judged on the way they look rather than the way they were playing.

At the ZoneX you could see a scene with Dance competition (called "The One") and local rock bands. On the opposite side of the scene, you could find a flea market where you could buy low priced toys, some Cosplay outfits, t-shirts, plush, keychains and other stuff.

The most impressive part of the Comics Festival was certainly the comics and toys shop from Bandai, Gundam, Magic (The Gathering), PandaZ, Lego, Red magic, etc. where you could have a look at many nice designed toys and items, and the Japanese Comics Mega Store where you could look for some hard to find mangas or artbooks at pretty attractive prices.
