Fans were in for a treat at as celebrity cosplayer Liui Aquino made an appearance at this year’s Misaki CyberCon at the Activity Center of SM City Taytay in Rizal.  Having had much acclaim for his recent Hiccup of How to Train Your Dragon 2 cosplay, he has become even more known to the public and wanted to thank his fans at his special meet and greet session within CyberCon.

Set for early afternoon last August 31, 2014, the event had fans coming in as early as mall opening just to make sure they get the chance to meet their idol.  Everyone was ecstatic when they heard about it only the day before, so they eagerly awaited Liui’s appearance.  He then came out from the back stage cosplaying as Koushi “Suga” Sugawara of Haikyuu!! to the cheers of the audience.  He then addressed the crowd and thanked them for coming and extending their support.

Then came the meet-and-greet proper at the side of the venue where a really long line of fans almost immediately appeared in front of the table set up for the event.  Fans eagerly awaited their turn as Liui graciously signed autographs on tarps, posters, magazines, had selfies, and had his photos taken with his fans.

Cosplayers look up to Liui, which was probably why their support for him was the warmest of all.  They of course did not pass up the opportunity to share a short chat with him, exchange cos cards, take selfies, and do signature poses with him in front of the camera.

Notwithstanding the long line and huge turnout of the meet and greet, Liui was able to accommodate everyone, and after giving away more prizes with Cosmic Bytes, it was time for him to leave, but not without the applause and appreciation of the crowd.  It was a fun and memorable encounter with everyone, with Liui the most grateful one of all.
