Day Two of Otaku Expo 2012

Since December 2011, I have been waiting for Otaku Expo 2012. It was the first cosplay event that I attended for 2012. I chose to go on the second day (January 22, 2012 Sunday) as the individual cosplay competition was scheduled on that day. I wanted to be cosplayer/journalist/photographer on that day. But oh! I guess you can’t serve multiple masters at the same time. It was extremely hard for me because I go to events alone. Hmmm… but that is a story for another day.

For this event, I went as Sakura Haruno from Naruto Shippuden (and no, that is not the only costume that I have. Wehehehe ^_^). Photo courtesy of GENESIS.ph


As much as I wanted to cover the entirety of the event, I was only able to focus on cosplayers. I missed the Gundam Caravan (I WANT ANOTHER GUNDAM!), the toy exhibit, and the programs on stage. (T_T)

So let us go straight to the point. My camera is filled with cosplayers and I am proud of them. They are very inspiring.

Yay! I saw another Sakura Haruno cosplayer! :) 

*Drum Roll* And my favorite cosplayer of the day is Serreniethy Fionah as Ezra Scarlet from Fairy Tail. Her costume is very detailed and her facial expression in this photo is very convincing. And admit it! She is cute! (^_^)

Sadly, it was getting late and I missed the cosplay catwalk. (T_T) I missed another opportunity to go up on stage. *sigh* 

Overall, I think this event was a success. Megatrade Hall 2 of SM Megamall was opened to accommodate the growing crowd. Hmmm... I guess otaku culture has taken a niche in the Philippines.

See you at the next con, everyone!

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
