Otaku Expo 2013 Day 2

The Otaku Expo 2013, which happened first on January 2013, has been continued last weekend (August 17-18, 2013). It was held in SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 3. I had the chance to drop by the event and take pictures of cosplayers. 



I didn't cosplay for this event because I am preparing for next week. I was just your ordinary con goer/blogger gracing Otaku Expo 2013. It was so much fun to see the surprised reaction of people who didn't recognize me! So does this make me a master of disguise then? Wheee~~~

I roamed around the venue and found some nice swag! I bought three Assassin's Creed stickers and a Sakura Haruno printed bag tag. I also commissioned the artist Jade Ong to draw for me a chibi version of Rain! It's so cute! I can feel that this is the start of more Rain chibis in the future! LOL! 

My Otaku Expo stuff.
While going around, I also took  pictures of cosplayers who still went despite the threat of wind and rainfall. It is hard to travel whenever it rains, and these people trekked through the storm bringing along costumes and makeup!

Cosplayer Raphaelle Veronica Ortega as Ezio of Assassin's Creed


Hunter X Hunter group cosplay









My favorite cosplayer of the day is Jerome Velarde as Hisoka of Hunter X Hunter. Though a villain, Hisoka is my favorite character from the anime series. Jerome portrayed him well! Look at the wig, the costume... everything from head to foot is accurate! Lastly, the pose and the eyes! That is how Hisoka does it!

Lots of cosplayers and con goers attended the event. So I can say that this Otaku Expo is a success. That just proves that nothing can stop otakus from celebrating the craft we all love, not even wind and rain.

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
