Great Memories at Fantasy Quest 3: Live On!

On August 25, 2013, the third year of Fantasy Quest was held on Fernwood Gardens. It was my first time to attend and I have raves about it! The venue provided good backgrounds for photos. The event program was simple but it provided the opportunity for cosplayers to interact with each other.

My FQ3 ticket :)
I was so happy to see renowned cosplayers, from both the international and local scene, gracing this event! Popular Filipino cosplayer Zhel and Japanese cosplayer Usagi were the official guests. They walked on stage and showcased their beautiful costumes! 


Zhell on stage! 

It's Usagi! :) 
We also had a signing and photo op session with them! Sweet! And cosplayers lined themselves up peacefully! That is also one of the things I love about Fantasy Quest. It wasn't crowded unlike mall events. 


It's blurry but I have a selfie with Zhel! Yippee! 

A rare moment capture in time! Me and Usagi! :) 

Yay! They gave me their coscards, too! :) 
After the guest interaction, the cosplay catwalk was next! But the Fantasy Quest stage is different from other events! There was no competition. You are free to walk and to show the audience your awesome costume.  For the first time, I felt accepted and free to cosplay! 

I gotta admire the stage! It starts off at the top of the elegant staircase then you get to walk on a red carpet! Plus, they put in that fog effect which added drama to the scene! It is the best and most beautiful stage I have walked on! I'm so happy to have found one photo of me, courtesy of Vester Piedad

So let's move on to my photos of cosplayers! It was a cloudy day and it gave a beautiful dreamy effect! I like the fact that I was able to take shots of people with a good background! It was surreal!

Since FQ3 didn't promote a competitive environment, I will not choose a favorite cosplayer. For this post, I have decided to have my favorite photo of the day. And it is... 


Me with Jin Joson. :) 
Me with Jin Joson... She is one of my cosplay inspirations! I admire her and her skill to portray both male and female characters. Finally, I have met her in person! I was always on the look out for her in the cosplay events that I have attended in the past. But I never got the chance to see her. Now, FQ3 is special to me more than ever! Meeting Jin is a dream come true for me! 

I love how this event made me feel! No competition, just support and interaction! Fantasy Quest 3 is the best cosplay event that I have attended in my experience as a cosplayer! And I shout out with a big "YES!" for another Fantasy Quest next year!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[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. Tous Les Jours signage in SM North The front view of the store.  Yummy breads on display!  Breads on display for sale. Oh! There is my favorite! 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
