Unforgettable Cosplay Mania 2013

Best Blogger Tips
I have left my heart and mind in SMX Convention Center. Last weekend, October 5-6, 2013, Cosplay Mania 2013 Overdrive was held there. And woah! I just had the most overwhelming event in my experience as a cosplayer. It was so intense that, even after three days, the people, the overpowering feelings, and the exciting memories keep playing on my head. 


Guess who's on the screen, everyone. :D
I attended Day 2 -October 6, 2013. On that wonderful day, I debuted my latest cosplay: Xion of Kingdom Hearts. After almost a year of being Rei Ayanami, I can smile in photos again! Yay!

This day was all about one thing: Cosplay. Silly me, of course, it is not called Cosplay Mania for nothing! What I mean is, other events have gaming, manga, or toys in their lineups. Well, those things are still present in Cosplay Mania but the main focus was cosplay! 

Kaname and Reika were back, too! I remember last year, Cosplay Mania 2012, when I didn't get the chance to see them. And the only photo I have of them was their backs facing me. LOL! But now, I finally to got to see them up close. What an unforgettable moment for me when Kaname's eyes met mine. *Fangirl scream* I reached out for a handshake and he stretched out his hand too. But alas! The distance were just not enough for our hands to meet. I will write about this in detail in a separate post. For now, I hope someone out there was able to take a picture of that awesome moment in time. 

I'm still lucky, though. Being first in the barricades, I was able to take snapshots of Jesuke, Kaname, and Reika on the judges's mini stage. Thankfully, they posed for us, too. Yay!

The international guests were awesome! But I didn't forget that the local cosplayers around me were amazing, too! Because of that, I took lots of photos of them. In fact, the whole venue was filled with people that there was not enough space to move around. However, I didn't get irritated with it. Rather, it gave the energetic vibe that made this event a success.

My favorite cosplayer of the day is...



...this cosplayer who went as Alphonse Elric. Full Metal Alchemist is my favorite anime and I saw how accurate the armor is. Even the height was what I expected it would be. Lastly, Alphonse's kind and shy personality was successfully delivered by the cosplayer. Kudos! 

What made this event a success? The people who went and the cosplayers who were there! Personally, I'm very happy that my wish came true: for Kaname and Reika to come back to the Philippines! I feel good  that my encounter with them is a lot better than what I had last year, too. And lastly, I got to meet more cosplayers in the local scene. Thanks for giving me coscards, everyone! I just realized that it helps me in finding and tagging you in my photos!

And oh.. what day is it? Three days later, Kaname's eyes and smile are all I see.

Since the Scouting Legion is constantly on the front line, fighting Titans, its high fatality, low success rate (if at all) discourages most people from joining the legion. Thus, the legion suffers an all-time personnel shortage and the only soldiers who enter the Scouting Legion are dedicated to the cause of humanity usually at the cost of their own lives! This is the Eren Jaeger cosplay costume for Recon Corps (Scouting Legion) in Attack on Titan! And Hanji Zoe is a Squad Leader from the Scouting Legion. Hanji conducts research on Titans and, as such, is deeply interested in Eren Jaeger, who can turn into a Titan. Hanji is very passionate and driven in pursuit of new knowledge. And Hanji Zoe cosplay costume from www.cosplayfield.com also pretty popular in Attack on Titan cosplay field!
