This year's Toy Con, on June 14-16, was held in SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1, 2, and 3. I was only able to attend Day 3, Sunday. It was my only free time and I'm so happy that most of my friends went on this day, too.

The place was packed and I had no space to take photos of the venue, the stage, and the booths present. So, I decided to let my battery drain on cosplayers. And I'm happy I did!
I went as Rei Ayanami for this event.

Yay! My friend Lot took candid shots of me behind the scenes! The photo below is my favorite! Thanks, girl! :)

I was a cosplayer/photographer/blogger. It is something that I am always trying so much to improve. My cosplay is still far from standards but I'm proud to say that my photos have leveled up... a bit. LOL! :P

And... *drum roll* my favorite cosplayer of the day is.... *drum roll*... my good friend Reeve Felix Castillo who portrayed Roxas (XIII version) from Kingdom Hearts!

What great stance! The costume, the hair, and the weapon are accurate! To top it off, Reeve gave out that smile which somewhat says, "Come on! I'm ready for battle!". He improved a lot on his cosplaying skills and I say that this is one of his best characters ever!
So how do I rate this year's Toy Con? Hmmm... well, it wasn't as good as last year. I already saw the same toys and the crowd was unbearable! Hey! I heard next year's Toy Con will be held in SMX! Now that kept my hopes up for a better event next time!
