The Best of Anime 2012: Cosplayers Galore

The cosplayers of the Best of Anime 2012 filled the room with much excitement! The costumes ranged from the simple school girl uniform to the complicated mecha. By the way, this event was held in SMX Convention Center on Sept. 15-16, 2012. I attended Day Two (Sept. 16) as I had another appointment with Belle de Jour on the 15th. Well, an active lifestyle does good! 

Back to the topic... the Best of Anime 2012 had a lot of booths and activities for everybody! Read my previous post here. This blog entry is specially dedicated to the cosplayers. There were a lot who attended. Some I know personally, and others I saw for the first time. The popularity of cosplay really went up this year!

As promised, here are the photos I took that drained the battery of my camera:

Cosplayer David Shen D'Angelo as Mr. Pogi

Cosplayer Reeve Castillo as Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji.




Cosplayer Ralph Patrick Villaluz






Cosplayer Zhykrys Sevastra as Bulma from Dragon Ball.












Cosplayer Serreniethy Fionah as Gundam Girl Aegis from Gundam Seed.



Cosplayer Ira Orduna 


Cosplayer Rb Cheng as Burning Gundam.


Cosplayer Gaby Ortega as Marguerite of One Piece




Here are a couple of photos I had with some cosplayers:



***Drum Roll*** My favorite cosplayer of the day is...

Cosplayer Ken Lim as Law of Tekken.

...Ken Lim as Marshall Law of Tekken. He proves that you don't have to be in a mecha armor to portray a great cosplay. His facial expression, action pose, and his costume, albeit simple, is very detailed and accurate. 

These cosplayers completed my day! Ah! But what is an otaku event without cosplay eh? I'm proud to say that this year's Best of Anime was well attended by anime and cosplay fans. It was a surefire success!

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
