My Scenes from the 7th PCC

Were you present on March 9, 2014, at Robinson's Manila for the second day of the 7th Philippine Cosplay Convention? Were you part of the crowd as a cosplayer, anime enthusiast, or photographer? 

The early crowd of the 7th PCC
Or did you attend  the event as a blogger, like me? And yes, I was in my cosplay outfit, too! And just like last year's PCC, I went as Rei Ayanami again. This year is special because for the first time, Xtian Mack of arkadymac.com and I bring you a double coverage of the event. Xtian was in cosplay, too! He went as an ANBU shinobi.

Me and Xtian
First things first, I was present for the opening number of the event. The second day was launched with a dance performance from AKB48 cover group, Sugar48.

After the opening performance, the crowd slowly swelled with cosplayers. Seeing other people cosplay makes me happy. I went with my friends and we took selfies… hehehe~

Other than selfies, I took photos of cosplayers, as usual. This time around, it is more special because Xtian Mack and I took photos together.  

I took photos of the photographer in action. Look at the stance, man! His dedication to cosplay and photography is something to be admired. Proof? His 5-pound (~2.5 kg) camera. On the scene below, he is working on the feature Shaider and Annie Cosplay by Bri and Kasumi




And the great man took photos of me too. Hehehe~ Yay to cosplayers who take pics!

Aaaaand…. here are my shots:

My favorite cosplayer of the day is… Mina Kim as Gothic Annie. While this look is actually an alternate skin for the champion Annie in League of Legends, I do feel that it fits the character very well. It gives the champion a distinct disturbed look, very much like Alice from American McGee's video game Alice. Mina did portray Annie impeccably as well. You can see from her aura, the cute, disturbed, and sometimes frightening Annie. Her costume is well-crafted, too.

It was Xtian introduced me to Mina and encourage me to take photos of her. Of course, there is the #selfie Hehehe~

Xtian takes a photo of me-selfie. (^_^)

I pretty much enjoyed this year’s PCC. It has beaten the 2011 PCC as one of my most epic cosplay events in my life. Special thanks to Xtian for this inviting me to a double coverage.

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
