Invitational Otaku Photoshoot9,  or IOP 9, was originally held at the Best of Anime 2013 event at the SMX Convention Center at SM Mall of Asia and featured an Animarriage Booth where people, cosplayers in particular, can get “married,” complete with matching wedding rings and certificates.  This was line with the broader theme of couples for this month’s installment of this truly unique photoshoot series, which was carried over to a “Part 2″ of sorts at the faithful and ever-dependable Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife in Quezon City.

Part 2 was inevitably cancelled due to bad weather, and Part 2.5 was held the week after, thankfully with clear weather that time around.  There was a drizzle when the event ended, but for those who have been to past installments know, IOPs aren’t complete without the rain.

IOPs have the simple rule of getting photographers, cosplayers, otakus and other enthusiasts together, have them know each other and be friendly with each other and respect one another as people who share the same or similar interests.  With this in mind, everyone had fun doing photoshoots thro9ughout the park.

Of course, special attention was given to couples, the theme for this month’s IOP.  There were famous anime couples like Yuno and Yuuki from Mirai Nikki, as well as some crazy crossover couples and odd pairings just for fun.

There was also the raffle for cool prizes as sort of a test run for the Japanime event at PUP on Oct 3, also organized by Otaku Urule.  Everyone enjoyed it though the winners of course had the bigger smiles.

Eventually the sun set again on another IOP behind the clouds and the drizzle but everyone got to enjoy another fun get-together and anticipating the next one, IOP 10 with a zombie apocalypse theme.  Our thanks and congratulations to Otaku Urule for another successful event and keeping the community together and alive.

Apologia:

My personal apologies to some of the cosplayers whose photos did not turn out so well. I offer no excuse for my lack of skill and only promise to get better photos of you next time. Again my deepest, sincerest apology.
