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.

The arkadymac.com team stopped by for a quick coverage of the third day of the 10th Christmas Toys and Collectibles Fair at SM Megatrade Hall 2, SM Megamall during a very busy (and traffic-filled) weekend this side of the metro.  It’s a toys and collectibles convention for enthusiasts while for the cosplayers it’s a chance to get gifts for others and themselves as well as a Christmas party of sorts before they go off celebrating the holidays.

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.
