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.

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
