We had the unexpected but nevertheless fortunate opportunity to meet some of our really great cosplayer friends while covering an unrelated event early this year. They tell us that they just got to know of each other online and had decided to meet up and probably have a shoot together. They have become prominent cosplayers of characters from the wildly popular Japanese webcomic, manga and anime One Punch-Man, and they have had much fun portraying some of their quirky but memorable cast.
Our friends from the Kawaii PH community got to celebrate the holidays together in style at their Winter Wonderland Year End Party just recently. With many exciting events which include a successful book launching earlier this year, 2015 has been a great year for Kawaii lovers and enthusiasts, and they have decided to close it off properly with a fun year-end party with everyone.
Cosplayers got to showcase their talents while giving to a worthy cause last weekend at Cosplay Christmas Giving 2015 held at Playland and at Fisher Mall. As part of a modelling and entertainment event which featured celebrities and up-and-coming models and performers, cosplayers helped make lots of people smile and feel the spirit of the season.
Beyond the intricate helmets and armor and gaudy outfits, costumers and cosplayers wish to bring their unique talents and skills to bring happiness to the ones who need it the most. More than just a hobby they are passionate about, they have sought to make a difference in society as they banded together with altruistic groups to bring an early Christmas to the children confined at the East Avenue Medical Center in Quezon City.
As the latest of a long-running series of events of unprecedented scope, Outbreak Manila: Arca South once again gave fitness and zombie enthusiasts and everyone in between an exhilarating, scream-filled experience last weekend. Filipinos have long been fascinated with zombies and the many stories and media around them and have long wished to have an experience in what it would be like if there was a zombie apocalypse in the Philippines. Outbreak Manila: Arca South gave them that in spades as screams were heard everywhere from the afternoon all the way into the evening.
After our coverage of the Cool Japan 2015 event with our team, we whisked our Cosplay Model and Correspondent Ami for a quick photoshoot. All of us have been covering so many conventions, with Ami reporting for the biggest cosplay events for us, that her own feature for the website had been long overdue. Presenting our Cosplay Model Ami for her first online feature for arkadymac.com.
