Lyron Aquino: Focus

 

arkadymac.com highlights not only the best events in the Philippines, but also its cosplayers.  We are fortunate enough to get a short interview with one of the most outstanding cosplayers in the Philippines, Lyron Aquino, also known as Lychiii.  Lychiii is from his nickname Ly and a positive answer for any question, “yes.” “Yes” in Spanish with an Asian kick.  A universal acquiescence for a wondering world.

The Cyberzone Cosplay Craze series of events made its next stop at SM City Trece Martires in Cavite, where lots of cosplayers and spectators came by to have great time. Cyberzone Cosplay Craze is a fun and innovative revolution on how cosplay events are done, and it has been happening this year, not just in Manila, but all throughout the country. Sponsored by SM Cyberzone and organized by cosplay.ph, Cosplay Craze has been bringing absolutely free events closer to where the cosplayers are, offering huge prizes and giveaways that even major events can’t match. But most of all, it has given cosplayers a reason to meet up with others like them within their communities and have an enjoyable, non-cramped, stress-free afternoon of cosplay fun.

International musician and artist Joe Inoue took time off his vacation to meet his ardent fans at the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center in Quezon City.  “Wildlife” is widely known to cosplayers as a place to do photoshoots, but this afternoon it became an unlikely but very accommodating place for the popular singer to get up close and personal with those who have been nothing but supportive of him.

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.
