The highlight of the event was the Cosplay Catwalk Competition where many cosplayers took part in. They gave a good show to an appreciative crowd as they did skits and stunts and all the other things that make cosplay amazing and fun.  Just some of the winners include our friends  Kurt Vidallo winning Best Male, Krishna Mallari for Best Female, Markie del Rosario for Best League of Legends cosplay and Christian Umali for Best Mecha.

The program went on late into the night, and as it ended, there were a lot of satisfied visitors and happy guests and a lot of tired but proud Otaku Urule members and staff for having put on such an amazing event.  More power to them as they already have plans of staging another grand evbent next year.
