Ozine Fest 2014

Best Blogger Tips
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


Sailormoon! Yay!

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.
