This month’s we’re gonna do a research on another continent.
I know there are some Malaysian readers here ^___^ It’s your turn to shine ^__^
So to be honest I know little about Malaysia. Which made me do some research about this country.
For those who don’t know where Malaysia is on the world map. You can find it here:
So the capital city of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur is the official capital and largest city of Malaysia.
It is also the main commercial and financial centre of the country.
The population stands at over 28 million.
The country is separated by the South China Sea into two regions, Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo (also known as East Malaysia). Malaysia borders Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei. It is near the equator and has a tropical climate.
Malaysia is the 43rd most populated country and the 66th largest country by total land area in the world, with a population of about 28 million and a land area of over 320,000 km2 respectively. It is comparable in population to Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, and is roughly similar in size to Norway and Vietnam.
Cosplay is big in Malaysia, each year there are more and more cosplayers.
I have been checking out the Malaysian cosplayers
and I must say I’m quite surprised of their awesome cosplays! <33
If you are looking to contact Malaysian cosplayers,
the best way is via Cure, deviantart or their cosplayforum.
I didn’t find much on cosplay.com :(
Wat did catch my eye that there are more male cosplayers here and more crossplayers! I like this :p
