A busy weekend for the cosplay community starts off with the very competitive TORCH 4: Tournament of Champions 4 at SM Bacoor organized by cosplay.ph. It featured two cosplay competitions: the Cyberzone Cosplay Competition sponsored by SM Malls and the TORCH 4 qualifiers.

The event attracted many cosplayers from the southern Metro Manila area, although some of the participants have come from as far as Baguio just to take part in the contest. Cosplayers had a grand display of their skills and talents in front of a large, appreciative crowd. Pablo Bairan led the hosting team and the competition had spectacular judges who had the difficult task of choosing the best cosplayers for the event.

In the end, the amazing Bolen Lareza claimed first place for the Cyberzone Cosplay Competition while our friend Carmae Fonte claimed second. We’d also like to congratulate our friends Carina Crisostomo and Ken Lim claimed first runner up at the TORCH qualifiers.
