Going Gaga in the Born This Way Album Launch

Born This Way is a popular song by Lady GaGa. May 28 2011 was the anticipated date of its worldwide album launch. Here in the Philippines, it was sponsored by it was celebrated along with a fashion show. I, being a costume enthusiast, had to go and check out the beautifully crafted costumes inspired by Lady GaGa. 






The album launch was made possible by Astroplus/Astrovision. The fashion show was entitled Green Fierce, and it was sponsored by Imation. Contestants were required to incorporated Imation products on their costumes. I thought that there will be a lot of participants. However, I found out that it was the grand finals already, so there were only three. The next photos showed the participants taken at the backstage before the event started:


This is my favorite, an attire in red:


This girl reminds me of Antlantis. I think that was what the theme was:


But if there's one costume that made Imation products obvious, it was this entry (photo shown below). I like how the CDs glitter. :)




The next photo shows Captivating Katkat. At first, I thought she was a part of the fashion show. LIttle that I know that it will be because of her that I enjoyed this event. (I'll tell you guys later) :) This picture is my first photo taken at the event:


The event was kicked off my dancers moving to the tune of Judas. It was followed by short talks from the host and from the organizers of the event. The first part was a fashion show. It was not part of the contest. But it showcased costumes with seriously themed Imation products. The photo below showed the three models with the designer:






 And then... came the performance of Katkat. :) She performed a la Lady GaGa. She danced and lipsynched. Her costumes were close to true! The performance rocked the stage and she captivated the audience. No wonder she was called Captivating Katkat. 


Katkat started off the show with a slow rendition of Paparazzi:

Her next performance slowly gained momentum with Bad Romance:

The excitement then came to its peak with Born This Way:


After Katkat's performance, the event continued with the Green Fierce grand finalists. It was stared by the dancers moving to a Lady GaGa medley of songs:




The finalists at the ramp:



Seeing these beautiful costumes is very inspiring. :) The event was a true reflection of Lady Gaga's song: I'm beautiful in my way.

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
