2013 Flashback, 2014 Engage

It's already 2014! Belated Happy New Year to all our friends, fans, associates and clients. 2013 flew by so fast that we still feel left behind in that year due to time dilation from FTL travel! We thought to post our New Year message earlier on 1 January with a few photo highlights of 2013 but scouring through thousands of photos took longer than expected with so much more to show and tell than we thought. 2013 was really a breakthrough year for Outpost with numerous projects keeping our small crew intensely busy. Here's our brief pictorial flashback of 2013 starting with cosplaying and costuming:

Dressing wizards and witches from Oz.

Equipping G.I. Joes for the official launch of TGV IMAX 1 Utama.

Supporting the launch of GSC CityOne Mall, Kuching.

Plus another trip to Kuching for retailer launch in Boulevard Mall with sci-fi performances.

Taking comic book inspired heroes on roadshow nationwide.

Drenching a school girl in blood.

Bringing more wizards and witches to HITB Security Conference.

Gathering adventurers from Middle-Earth and Asgard at Comic Fiesta.
2013 was also busy year taking movie mascots on meet & greet sessions nationwide:

The Smurfs returned, now dressed for Raya.

We turned zookeepers for a lion and 3 penguins from Madagascar.

Showcased dancing Bananas in Pyjamas from Down Under.

Walked a "live" dinosaur in Klang Valley malls.

For fan engagements, fans of both Star Trek and Star Wars were given exciting missions:

Trekkies beamed aboard the Enterprise at Star Trek  The Exhibition.

Gathering Starfleet officers for Star Trek Into Darkness.

Jedi, Rebels & Imperials launching the Death Star at LEGOLAND Malaysia.

Superheroes bringing smiles to children at KL Hospital.

Cosplay volunteers at charity fair in Taman Megah.

While we weren't involved in many official NERF events for 2013, it was a big year for kids birthday parties hosting NERF games:

NERF face-off between Cobra and G.I. Joe.

NERF promo and community activities at Tropicana City Mall.

Kids NERF parties were in-trend for 2013.
For services, our production team scratch-built a handful of costumes and props:

Custom-made mascot for Irwan robot (right) of Bola Kampung The Movie.
Wearable sci-fi exoskeleton props.

Movie-inspired hammer prop launcher.

Medieval cosplay prop fabrication.

Iron Man memorabilia display at 1st Avenue Mall, Penang.

Finally we took to the leap to be officially part of Comic Fiesta as a premium artbooth exhibitor and also took opportunity to rebrand as Outpost Productions:

Leading up to Comic Fiesta, we unveiled a series of online videos titled Cosplay Fight Club matching cosplay characters from popular culture and soliciting viewers to vote for their chosen winners. The results were unveiled at Comic Fiesta weekend and uploaded online:

Whew, we barely had time to take a leak!

Now into 2014, Outpost Productions looks forward to a greater year of out-of-this-world engagements delighting movie fans and cosplay enthusiasts plus managed "busy-ness" delivering projects for our valued clients. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year indeed!
