Festive Teriyaki Boy Matsuri

Best Blogger Tips
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!

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. :((

My favorite booths were the Coca-Cola Booth which allowed me to play Naruto on Wii. Yay! And of course, I love Photobooths! Baicapture gave them out for free. (^_^)

Before the official cosplay parade started, I took some photos of the cosplayers with the Eastwood Central Plaza background:



















We were also entertained with Japanese Pop and Anime Songs by the Himitsu Heiki Band and PPF All Stars:

Then, finally! The cosplay started on stage. I took these photos as the cosplayers did a short performance on stage. 










My favorite cosplayer of the day is this girl playing Hatsune Miku. Her costume was complete and full of detail. Furthermore, she was able to embody Miku's cute and bubbly personality.  (^_^)




I wasn't able to finish the whole Cosplay line-up as my camera ran out of battery. *Sob* T_T But it's ok. I enjoyed the day and I came home supersaturated with Japanese culture, thanks to Teriyaki Boy. :)) Happy 10th Anniversary!

Nice coverage! Sayang, naubusan ka din ng bat.. dami pa tayong di nakunan na cosplayers dun sa Matsuri hehe.

about dun sa pag arrange into 2 columns, kailangan one at a time i-upload yung pics. after uploading the 1st pic, align left... then place the mouse cursor on the right side of the photo, upload the next image and then align right. and just repeat the steps for the rest of the photos. medyo matrabaho nga lang ha. msg ka lang if you have questions pa abt it :)
