Cosplay Mania 2016

Okay, the date might confuse you. But yeah... I'm writing about Cosplay Mania 2016. When I was writing my blog post for Cosplay Mania 2017, I found out that I had the 2016 one in the drafts with only three paragraphs. Life became so hard for me and coping up was the priority. Eventually, I moved on until I forgot about it. 

So here I am making up for lost time. Yeah... life is still as crazy as ever but I just can't let go of something unfinished. I will share with you the photos and whatever memory I had from last year's event. It was a huge difference from this 2017. Yep, there was a queue, but it won't take you hours. The crowd was bearable to say the least. 

Cosplay Mania 2016 happened on the month of October. It was probably the only cosplay event I went to for that year. Yep, I'm not kidding when I say that life gave me a lot of challenges. It was held at SMX Convention Center. I went there only on Day 2, as my schedule permitted. It was nice to see myself surrounded with colorful costumes and geeky stuff again. Wheee~


I got the gold ticket!

There were activity and merchant booths. The first booths that I went to were the NHK booth where they gave Domo-kun prizes and the Green Tea Kitkat booth for a free photobooth and samples. Freebies galore!

My Kitkat green tea and photo. Cute cosplayer!

My gold ticket enabled me to access the performance stage. And oh, here are my real time Instagram posts about it. Told you I had a few evidence of my time there. Hahaha~ It was a nice opportunity to be able to take photos of the the guest international cosplayers. Oh~ And my crush Kaname was there! Hihihi~ Here I am getting all kilig again. \(^_^)/

Of course, as usual, I opted to take photos of cosplayers in the event. I recognized a few foreign cosplayers there, like @phildukemaggio and the Wolverine cosplayer (which I also saw last STGCC in Singapore). I took photos of cosplayers inside the halls, as there were still space to move about. However, the lighting outside was better for taking photos... makes my life easier... hehehe...

The event is not complete without toys. I didn't join in making Gundams. I just took photos of the few Gundam toys on display at the Gunpla booth.






Toys, cosplay, and seeing my cosplay idols made up my Cosplay Mania 2016. Yep, you can read between the lines that I had one great time! Got a lot of loot, too... Wheee~~

[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!

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
