The Epic 5th PCC

The 5th Philippine Cosplay Convention was held in Robinson's Midtown Atrium. It was a grand event for otakus everywhere. Most of all, it was a free event! Furthermore, the booths had freebies! Hmmm..... and free is good! :P

The said event was held on March 3, 2012. I am not sure if this was a two-day event. But anyhow, I only attended day one.

I arrived early and the first thing that I saw was the Gundam Caravan! Wheee~ My first freebie of the day! This time, Gundam Philippines offered the blue version of Gundam Astray. (read more).

Free photo prints were also given out by Eurotel. Sadly, they weren't able to spot me. *cries* Here is the print, on it is my friend Lot.

High Sierra Philippines also had a free photo booth for everyone! Sadly, I didn't get the chance to have one as well. But ah! Here are my friends on the photo. :)

Photos of the contestants from Cosplay Costume of the Year were on display. The winners were announced later on in the event.

Of course! Toys are a staple in otaku events! What is amazing in PCC was that the toys on display were made of paper:
Chibi Hatsune Miku

Pikachu! *Pika*

Snow Miku

What I like about this event, as a cosplayer, is the dressing room. It gave me the opportunity to interact more with fellow cosplayers. I saw again those who I know from previous events and I also made new friends. Being a newbie, this was a special case for me. I didn't know that kulitan exists between cosplayers. 

So, I went as Sakura Haruno of Naruto Shippuden. Again~~ Hey, I love Sakura.

While in cosplay, I also took shots of others. I love it when cosplayers look into my camera for a pose. It's easier to take photos this time around as I know some of them by name, or by face.

My favorite cosplayer of the day is Serreniethy Fionah as Ezra Scarlet in Heaven's Wheel Armor from Fairy Tail. Her costume is well crafted and very detailed. My favorite part are the wings. It draws attention to her. She also projects the warrior personality that is Ezra. 

That sums up my otaku experience in PCC. The booths, cosplay, and most of all the FREEBIES made it all the more worth it. I'm so happy that I fulfilled three tasks for this. Me being a con-goer, cosplayer, and blogger. 

Watch out for my blog entry regarding my experience as a cosplayer in this event. :)

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
