PETALING JAYA – The recent Anime Fest at Paradigm Mall over the weekend has seen many stunning and creative cosplays of popular anime characters, but none attracted more attention than this cosplayer.
In a video posted on the subreddit r/Bolehland, it showed a man fully dressed in traditional Saudi Arabian clothing complete with a red and white checkered headscarf, an aghal (black cord) and a pair of black sunglasses.
He was also seen holding up a piece of paper with “Genshin [Impact] agenda Yahudi. HARAM!” (Genshin Impact is a Jewish agenda. ILLEGAL!) written on it.
Watch the video here:
Fortunately, many Malaysians found the cosplayer’s costume hilarious and played along with the joke as well.
They also praised him for his immensely on-point depiction of a Saudi Arabian man.
One even joked that the cosplayer was holding a sign “exposing” a nuclear code that could nuke a country into oblivion.
