Ozine Fest 2014

After about a month, I finally have the time to just sit down and write about the cosplay event that I attended in the last week of April. Oh? Is it May now? I wasn't able to keep track of time. Hahaha~ I apologize for not being able to write about it sooner. I have been keeping tabs on the business that is life. But nothing will stop me from writing about cosplay, not even time. Hehehe

So back to the topic... Ozine Fest 2014 was held on April 25-27 at SMX Convention Center. My schedule only permitted me to attend the third day. 



I have attended a lot of events in the past but I gotta say, I got intimidated when I saw how long the queue was! Woah! 




Since there was no way I could possibly get in, I took photos of my friends as we stayed at the second floor and waited for the right time to barge in. For this event, I was invited by my friends to be Xion and be part of their Kingdom Hearts cosplay group! Yay! Xion suits me perfectly and donning the costume is no problem. And it was the first time for me to join a cosplay group, as well. So I was very excited! Yay!

Furthermore, I also took photos of the cosplayers who were passing by our standby area. Here they are: 


Cute chibi cosplayers as Elsa and Anna from Frozen

Two thumbs up for this Jack Frost cosplayer! (^_^)


as Anna from Frozen


as Ariel from The Little Mermaid


It was about 3PM when the crowd thinned up a bit and only then was I able to get tickets. It was a sigh of relief for me! Yes, finally! 


My Ozine Fest 2014 ticket
Yeah, I know it was not the usual colored ticket. Hehehe~ Apparently, there were pre-sold tickets and it was in plastic card form AND colored! It is also cheaper by PhP50. Sigh... Maybe I was somewhere in Pluto when the pre-selling was announced because I had absolutely no idea about it. Hahaha~ However, my friends were able to get one beforehand. The ticket was so gorgeous that I just had to take a photo! 



Surprisingly, it wasn't that much crowded inside the venue. Sure, there were lots of attendees but there was still space to move about. And so, I roamed and took photos of cosplayers once more...





Lionel as Ken from Street Fighter




Steven as Sora of Kingdom Hearts




Rosette as Elso from Frozen
*Drum roll* My favorite cosplayer of the day is... this cosplayer as Sakura Kinomoto of Cardcaptor Sakura. She captured the costume of the transformed Sakura. Her attention to detail was really good. She even had the cards and the staff itself. Both of the accessories are really nice to look at. The key essential elements of Cardcaptor Sakura’s costume are actually those accessories and she successfully nailed them down. 


See the intricate details of the costume and accessories! 

Sakura Kinomoto has come to life! (^_^)
Well, finally at long last, I managed to blog about the event. Yes~ Even though it did take almost a month. What can I say? Sometimes, other circumstances will take the fore even over my hobbies. But as the saying goes, better late than never! Hahaha~

All in all, it was a truly fun event. While I attend Ozine Fest every year, this was my first time as part of a cosplay group. Acting out dioramas from the various scenes in the game was an amazing experience. It is like being the character for real. Here's to hoping that I can attend more events as a group next time. Though I would need to obtain more costumes…Ah well~ Guess I just gotta find a way to make more time. AjaFighting!

Wow, you really did capture the moments. Looked like nearly everyone went to day 3... I was there, but day 1 only though, but still, enjoyable nonetheless.

And by the way, I'd like to share my coverage of this event (plus other cosplay events and ones I'll be attending, and more) at my blog at: ametromanilaguy.blogspot.com. Just look for it there.

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
