Cosplay TORCH 2011

The Cosplay Tournament of Champions (TORCH) held its Manila leg of contests in SM North EDSA last August 27, 2011. After work that day, I immediately rushed to the venue for some cosplay action. Having arrived late, I was not able to follow the program on stage. But hey! I was still able to take photos of the cosplayers.  Celebrity cosplayer Chienna Filomeno graced the event in casual clothes.  Yay! I was very happy to be able to have a photo with Chienna Filomeno. :) My favorite cosplayer of the day is this girl as Wonder Woman. She perfectly embodied her character's tough and sexy personality.  The winners of Cosplay TORCH will compete in the upcoming Cosplay Mania 2011 on October 1-2 in SMX Convention Center. 

Festive Teriyaki Boy Matsuri

Teriyaki Boy's 10th anniversary was celebrated with a whole lot of Japanese pop culture. The theme was Matsuri , which means 'festival'. August 14, 2011 was the grand day! There were lots of games, booths, and trivia. Eastwood Central Plaza was the venue and truth be told, it was nice to have a place with lots of green trees and gray cobblestones as the background. As usual, I went to the event to see cosplayers! (^_^) Yay!  The place Games were held all throughout the event. There were Iku Iku Sushi Making Contest, Maki Eating Contest, Whatta Hair Coloring Contest, Japan Pop Culture Trivia Contest, and many more. Other than that, prizes were also given away in the raffle draw. Unfortunately, yours truly didn't win. :(( The Iku Iku Sushi Making Contest The Japanese Pop Culture Trivia Contest Some raffle draw winners. Sob!
