Why settle for a standard look when you can leave a long-lasting impression on your wedding day?
Abann Dass (real name: Mohd Firdaus Mohd Ali) opted for a bold choice for his big day by taking his Doraemon fandom to a whole new level. He wore a light blue Doraemon-themed baju Melayu as his wedding attire!
As many of you may know, “Doraemon” is a famous Japanese series that revolves around a robotic round blue earless cat named Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a helpless human boy named Nobita.
Abann’s striking wedding outfit had all the well-known and beloved “Doraemon” characters. They include Doraemon, Nobita, Shizuka, Suneo, and Goda (known as Giant in the Bahasa Malaysia-dubbed series screened in Malaysia). According to The Star, he hails from Kelantan and owns a local cosmetic line in Kota Baru.
The groom told the publication that he has been a longtime fan of the Doraemon franchise. The Doraemon baju Melayu was originally meant to be worn during the pre-wedding photoshoot. However, Abann had a change of heart. 5 days before their nuptials, he told his bride, Ana, that he was going to wear it to the decorated dias (pelamin).
“She initially did not want me to wear it, as she was embarrassed about what others would say. But I convinced her, by saying ‘kalau you sayangkan I, pakai kejap pun tak apa’ (if you love me, you wouldn’t mind even if I wore this for awhile,” Abann was quoted as saying. Ana eventually relented.
Abann even shared that Ana had a matching Doraemon baju Melayu as well. Since his beau wasn’t comfortable with people seeing her in it, Abann respected her wishes and did not upload those photos. “I understand what she is going through. For now, it is just me wearing this Doraemon theme attire,” the Kelantanese shared.
It is not stated what his relationship with the 2 women (pictured above) are, or if one of them is Ana. Despite the various feedback by netizens, we commend Abann in sticking to his choice of wedding outfit.
