The Best of Anime 2011 Coverage

The Best of Anime 2011 was one of the best otaku events I have attended. Part of my admiration for that is the venue, which was located in SMX Convention Center. The place was spacious! Thank God I was able to walk and breathe properly all throughout the day, as opposed to other anime events I have been. Truth is, it was my first time to attend a cosplay event in SMX. I now love that place! This 2-day event was conducted on September 17-18, 2011. I only attended Day One.

One outstanding feature was the various booths. There were educational booths, like The Japan Foundation and stalls from other Graphic Design schools. They were complemented by casual booths of Picstacular (free photo booth- yay!), Animarriage, and Gunpla. The food booth was Sam’s Maid CafĂ©. Of course, merchandisers were also part of this big event. 

The Picstacular Photo Booth and the Gunpla Booth were the only ones that I participated in. Well, I love photobooths and I collect them. As for Gundams, setting them up has become one of my newly discovered hobbies. So I joined another round of Gundam Assembling and Detailing contest in The Best of Anime 2011. We were given a new kit to set up Gundam Kyrios. Read more of my new Gundam here.

Now let’s get to the best part –COSPLAY! We never run out of creativity when it comes to this. The costumes were very well made. I admire most the mecha cosplayers whose costumes were larger than life (see photo of Zoids cosplayer below)! I have observed how tedious it was to put those costumes on. These cosplayers really have the passion to sacrifice comfort just to be inside those armors.

The biggest costume I have seen so far: Zoids mecha. The costumer was so tall and large that the cosplayer didn’t need to go up the stage for a showcase!

Here are my photos of other cosplayers from the event. All of them are artistic, as seen on their costumes.

 My favorite cosplayer of the day is this cute baby girl as Lara Croft. Awww… She was so happy and shy when photographers gathered around her.
  
Wow! This was one big event! It truly deserves its name as The Best of Anime.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
