Cosplay Mania 2015

Cosplay Mania 2015 was held at SMX Convention Center on the 3rd and 4th of October 2015. The event featured big names in cosplay and Japanese music. As usual, I was only able to go on the second day, Sunday.

Unfortunately, guys. I wasn't able to do much coverage this time because... I managed to grab a meet-and-greet ticket for Kaname! My slot was at 11AM and the session started my day. I couldn't pull myself together after that. Heehee~

 Yep, I also had my chance for an autograph and a photo op, but I will tell you more about it in a separate post. I got a lot of things to say to you, guys! (^_^)

Even though I was on a high after meeting my cosplay idol, I did my best to look around and see what the event had to offer. First, was the event stage...

The hosts of Cosplay Mania 2015

Everybody literally flocked to the Pikachu booth.

I saw Loverin Tamburin and her band, too.

Sorry for the blurry picture, guys. But I was so happy to see Jesuke Jes wave at us. (^_^)
This year, the booth section was so vast, man! Toys, T-shirts, mugs, keychains, and a whole lot of anime stuff were there... Where's money when you need it?

Who likes Keybies? I do... I got the Ezio one.
Magic: The Gathering had a demo session in their booth. Last year, I tried the iPad app. Now, I was very lucky to have someone actually teach me how to play it. It's more fun to battle with someone, I agree on that. And... I got a free deck, too! It's the red one this time.

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
