Cosplay Mania 2017

Best Blogger Tips
Cosplay Mania was the first cosplay event here in PH that I went to. After Chara Expo and STGCC in SG, I was in a hype of all things anime, cosplay, and other geek stuff. Anyways... I haven't missed Cosplay Mania since 2011. Yep, there was no write up for 2016 but I swear I was there. Hahaha~ Life became so busy for me that all I ever had were a few paragraphs. But now, I told myself that I should at least write some for 2017. Wheee~~

So September 30 and October 1 was Cosplay Mania. I went on Day 2. When I heard from the aftermath of Day 1 that the queue was over the top, I had my doubts of going. However, I told myself that I had to see my friends, too. True enough, the queue took me hours. It was unbelievable! I bought only the silver ticket, enough to see the cosplayers and merch booths inside the halls. 


My feet were already killing me after the queue. And inside the venue was so crowded! The merch booths were jam packed, as well. I do appreciate the cosplayers there who were still willing to pose for the camera despite the crowd. Here they are...

A cosplay event has some toys, too. There were a few displays of Gundams and other cute mecha themed ones.

Aside from the displays, the sponsor booths gave out freebies, too. The Gunpla booth had the Gundam making contest. And of course, there's a big Gundam on sight, too.

Behind this Gundam, are people setting up theirs.
I find the Canon kiosk the best! You can print a photo with their Pikachu plushies. Oooh~ Those are so adorable! Here's a photo of me and my friend holding the Pikachu toys. 

Oh~ So cutie Pikachu!


Overall, it was not the best Cosplay Mania for me but I still enjoyed the event. Cosplay and photography have always brought me happiness. Seeing my friends again made all the difference, too. It's nice to see that more people are interested in the hobby, now. So, I do hope that more improvements will be made in future events. 


My loot. :)
