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.)

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
