Alodia, Ashley, and Angel Mariel

Best Blogger Tips
Five years ago, at my first Toy Con experience, I vividly remember that I waited in line at the Maxicollector booth for a meet-and-greet chance with Alodia and Ashley Gosiengfiao. However, the crowd got so uncontrollable that I wasn’t allowed to take a selfie with them. On a positive note,  I had a really cute solo shot of Alodia that time.

This 2015, my fifth attended Toy Con led me to another fateful encounter and the fulfillment of one of my goals. When I visited the Cosplay Circle booth, I saw prints and posters of Alodia and Ashley on sale. I bought the photo book which entitled me to a meet-and-greet ticket.

Of course, I had to wait in line again. But this time, I finally had my chance for a photo op with the two lovely sisters. Alodia cosplayed Go Go Tomago of the animated movie Big Hero 6. She was very cute and friendly. She was the first one to even say, “Hi!” to me. The booth was near the stage and some orchestral music was being played and Alodia told me, “Final Fantasy ‘yun”. And me? Oh I was stuck somewhere in the air. All I could do was nod in response. Hahaha~

Then It was time for us to pose. I feel bad that I was not in costume. But no worries, I wasn’t really out of place because Ashley was in casual attire, too. Yay! I have my own photo on my camera but Christian Mack of arkadymac.com has much better shot! (^_^)

Funny how I didn’t manage to take a solo shot of Alodia this time around. Hahaha~ Yeah, life’s like that. But I’m very happy that I was able to achieve what was left hanging five years ago. It goes to show that what you want is given to you at the appropriate time. You’d just have to be patient.

Well guys, that’s it for now. Hopefully, I can meet more famous cosplayers and share photos with you. ‘Till next time!
