My Scenes from the 7th PCC

Best Blogger Tips
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:

Reeve as Captain Marvelous from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger









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.
