7th Christmas Toyfair and Cosplay Coverage

Cosplay Mario Joker Ghost Rider Nyanbu Anbu Psy

Mario, The Joker, Ghost Rider, Nyanbu and,,,Psy (?) have some fun.

The senior staff of the events department (all two of them) of Xtian Mack’s Cosplay and Anime Cafe can’t get any rest this December as they are mandated by law to cover the 7th Christmas Toyfair and the 2nd Philippine Die cast and Custom Car Show last Dec. 14-15-16, 2012 at the SM Megatrade Hall 1, SM Megamall.   Well, no ear-pulling or whining or crying were involved since these two adorable nuts just wanted to go cosplay anyway so they were there without even being told to do so.  This marks the first joint field cosplay coverage by Nyanbu and Tobi-kun, and boy did they cover a lot of ground.  The Megatrade Hall was near-packed with exhibitors and vendors showing all the neat stuff like toys, models, figures, kits and accessories that make the fanboys’ mouths water and their financial status perpetually poor. The entrance fee was P60. Some events were held inside though the space was just enough for the stalls and booths to fit in.  Lots of gift ideas and items for Christmas though focus really was on toys. Luckily, there are some really cute and simple things one can buy to fit any kind of budget.

Tobi-kun and Mika-chan check out all the great stuff on sale.

As always, this site’s focus is the cosplay part of the event.  The cosplay parade was held December 16, 2012, Saturday, and mall-goers were treated to a hopefully pleasant surprise as cosplayers strutted their stuff and were gawked at by a bewildered public.  Cosplay was not limited to that day, however, as cosplayers from all over came, participated and posed on any or all of the three days of the Toyfair.  The curious mall-goers had their fill of photos of the cosplayers and even more photos taken with them.  The entire floor the Megatrade was in was filled with people.

Plenty of trinkets and other curiosities too.

As I get the sinking feeling people are not interested in reading this write-up anyway even though I spent an hour or so thinking about it, so please enjoy our pics courtesy of Mika-chan, our really supportive photographer who deserves to be paid a lot but sadly we don’t have money.  So please donate, visit our blog, click on the ads, and maybe one of these days we can finally get our hands on a decent camera, preferably one that does not require the use of film.

Many thanks as well to my cosplay friends: Willard, Justine, Christian, John Paul, Dec-Dec, Dwight and John for the great photos they have selflessly shared to the blog.

Enjoy!
