Let's Go Let's Gokaijaaa~

I never thought that I would get addicted to the Super Sentai series again. I am not really into the power rangers stuff anymore. They appeal more to kids now and besides, the action scenes are somewhat predictable. It's that kind of genre, the Tokusatsu genre. I personally prefer shows with a heavily analytical and action plot. 

But... as I was thinking of new characters for my next cosplay, my friend suggested "Power Rangers" to me. It will be a group cosplay, he said. I hesitated at first, thinking that the costume would be a skin-tight outfit.  

"Oh no, it won't be a tight fit costume", he replied while showing me this photo...



"Oh! Nice costumes!", I said. It turns out that we would cosplay the 'normal' clothes of the power rangers. Yeah, I haven't thought of that. My friend is a genius! 

We would portray the characters from Kaizoku Sentai GokaigerIt is the TV show that commemorates the 35th Anniversary of the Super Sentai series. Woah~ That is a lot of power rangers! I can't believe the fact that the series existed way before I was born. Hehehe~

My friend initially suggested that I would play the yellow ranger. But but but... I have always liked pink rangers since the Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger days of Jason, Kimberly, Billy, Trini, and Zack. Hehehe~ I still remember their names from memory. Now don't get confused, I will cosplay the pink ranger from the original Japanese series Gokaiger. Yep, I asked my friend to give me that role. And that is how the pink Gokaiger, Ahim de Famille, got into my cosplan list for 2014.


The pink Gokaiger
Before every cosplay, you need to do a character study. That means researching all about the character, her mannerisms, and way of language. For me, I started out with the easiest route: watching the Gokaiger series. 

Honestly, when I saw Ahim de Famille and hear her speak, I instantly had her figured out. She did not seem to have a complicated personality. I immediately understood how to portray her. So there shouldn't be any need to continue watching the series as my purpose has been fulfilled, right?

Wrong! Hehehe~

I don't know why I was still glued to the screen. Wow! I was instantly hooked as I watched the first episode. The Gokaigers are unique because they are able to use the ranger keys of the previous Super Sentai and thus able to transform into various power rangers! Yay! It was so amazing to watch them transform to Goseiger, Shinkenger, and all the others. I saw Bioman, Fiveman, and oh my gosh~ Jetman! There were other rangers that looked familiar but I can't remember anymore. This is what make the Gokaiger series stand out. It is an incredible trip down nostalgia lane



This Super Sentai series has the same common and predictable plot: evil monsters attack earth and sends out many weak pawns, rangers defeat the enemy with their super weapon, enemy gets revived into a giant, rangers ride a vehicle that merge into a robot, then finally defeats the enemy. And it happens in almost every episode. 

But still, I was addicted to the series! What kept me glued to Gokaiger is the plot development. Despite the slow start, it provides deep character development. It still has that analytical element I'm looking for, just not presented at one go, but rather given on tidbits. 



Yeah~ The Super Sentai series still has appeal to me. I'm very suprised! Hahaha~ It is a good series replays on your head and keeps you addicted to watch more! And oh... did I mention that the OST is so catchy that it will keep playing in your head for the whole day?



I'm super excited to cosplay Ahim de Famille! Let's Go Let's Gokaijaaaa~!

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
