The first day of Pinoy Otaku Encore 2011 was a little laid back compare to what follows. Here now is my report for the second day! Yay! ^_^ I arrived early on November 27, 2011 in SM Megamall. Actually, I rarely go out on Sundays but this day was an exception. I have awaited this for 24 years of my life. And now, the time has finally arrived for my cosplay debut! :D
However, for this journal entry, I’m going to be a con-goer. It was not easy coming up with a report when you are cosplaying. But hey, I managed to bring it on, albeit poorly. So on with the event…
The crowd was a lot more than the first day. The event highlights happened on the second day, that’s why. There were K-pop Dance Contest, Battle of the Bands, and Cosplay Competition in the lineup. Of course, since I was also roaming around Megatrade Hall 3, I wasn’t able to cover all of these up close.
Fangirls and their deafening screams flooded the place when the K-pop Dance Contest started. Different groups danced and lip synched to their favorite idols on stage.
I had fun at the PUP Animerriage Booth! It was the noisiest place to be. A lot of people were enjoying there! I, too, got setup in there. Oh! Unfortunately, I was unable to take pictures! :( Does anyone have some of my pics?

Readers of this blog are familiar that I always dedicate space for cosplayers. They are the heart of the event after all. So far, this event has the most pictures of cosplayers so far! Well, it is obvious that I had more fun than any other event, right? :)

My favorite cosplayer of the day is… me! Hahaha! Nah, just kidding! In every event, I choose a cosplayer who, in my opinion, stands out among the crowd. For this special day, I choose…her who cosplayed Shiori Tsuzuki. Her costume is well made and she is into character very well.
I will forever remember this event in my life! Thank you to the cosplay community and to the NarutoCosplayers PH for organizing this event. You deserve its success! Till next cosplay! :)
