Cosplayers at the Philippine Toy Con 2012

Toy Con is more than toys! It is a haven of everything otaku-related. Toys (of course!). Anime Merchandise. Booths. Food. Gaming. And Cosplay! This year's event was held on June 16, 17, 18 at SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1, 2, 3. I went there on Day 3 which had highlights like Group Cosplay, Game Girl Cosplay, and a performance from one of Philippine's best rock band Kamikazee.

I attended my first toy con last year. I was not yet into cosplay and I only had one blog post then. But this time, the event got better and I have more photos that one post is not enough. I will cover the cosplay segment of this grand event.

I went as Sakura Haruno of Naruto Shippuden. While in cosplay, I also took photos of cosplayers who were in the event. It always feels good to have others share a common passion for this craft.

It is not an easy task to cosplay, take pictures, and cover the event at the same time. But ah well! A determined person always finds a way. With that, here are my photos of some cosplayers who were there. I apologize if I were not able to take a snapshot of all cosplayers.

I was so busy taking pictures of these wonderful people that I missed the happenings on the Toy Con stage. Fortunately, there was one that I was able to watch. Yup! You guessed it right! It was the Game Girl Cosplay Competition. 

What was amazing was the fact that participants were to catwalk on stage while Kamikazee was performing at the same time! Rock on!

Yup! That robot is a girl cosplayer!

Alodia Gosiengfiao was the guest judge of the Game Girl competition. After the catwalk, she had a short speech on stage. 

Alodia then went to her booth for a fan signing and photo op with her fans. This reminded me of last year's ToyCon too. I had my chance to have Alodia's autograph.

Well, that was what went on in this year's Toy Con with regards to cosplay. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to cover the Group Cosplay Competition. Maybe next year, then. 

Of course I haven't forgotten to choose my favorite cosplayer of the day. And it is... *drum roll*... Izabel Cortez as Infested Kerrigan. The craftsmanship is surreal! Look at all the detals! Everything is perfect! Izabel also put Kerrigan's personality in action. Her gaze says it all!

Surprisingly, Izabel Cortez was also my favorite cosplayer of the day at last year's Toy Con. She  went as Darth Talon and I didn't know her name back then. ^_^

Toy Con 2012 is amazing! Truth be told, it surpassed my expectations! It was not just cosplay! Watch out for my blog post about the toys and booths this week! (Added June 30, 2012: read more about the toys by clicking here.)

[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!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

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
