Dara: Reticence

 

Darla Reticence Cosplay Model Feature_0001

 

Like the character she portrays, Dara enjoys the simple pleasure of reading books,  keeping mostly to herself. There’s a whole lot more to her of course than being a busy student and a bookworm.  She has been cosplaying for quite a while, going to conventions and events and having fun like most of the people we get to meet during our coverages.  We agree with her that simple cosplays are as good as any as long as you get to be the character you love, and this was probably why we wanted to know bout her.  Presenting Dara as our lastest Cosplay Model in her very first online feature for arkadymac.com.

Rochelle: Resolute

“I love serious and mysterious types,” Rochelle tells us, referring to the characters she chooses to portray through cosplay.  She has only been cosplaying for roughly two years, but she has come to love it wholeheartedly.  We of course admire that attitude, which was why we have decided to invite her for the website.  Presenting our latest Cosplay Model Rochelle in her first online feature for arkadymac.com as Nagato of the wildly popular game and anime Kantai Collection.

Kyle: Bloodstained

 

Kyle Bloodstained Third Feature_0001

 

“The sight of blood fascinates me,” Kyle says with a restrained smile, her enthusiasm still much too evident.  “That’s why I recreate it to make my cosplays more appealing.”  We got to catch up with what’s new with her over a quick chat as we prepared for her photoshoot.  She was playing around with the fake blood she made from syrup, and it smelled sweet even from a distance.  It has been a while since we had a Cosplay Model feature this year, the first and the last one being Mina Kim, so we were excited to have Kyle grace our website again.

Mina Kim: Adventures

After her radio talk show appearance at Radyo Inquirer DZIQ 990 and just before her special guest appearance at Otacon with the arkadymac.com team, Mina went with us on a short detour for a quick shoot at a place she had never been before somewhere south of the Metro.  Earnestly curious and inquisitive, she took time off exploring this unique Japanese enclave hidden in the heart of the city.   In between snaps she tells us how her life has been one fun and exciting journey since she began cosplaying, with warm and fond memories she’ll keep for lifetime.

We’ve done over close to a hundred event coverages this year, so we thought of just taking it easy during the last event of the year and go around to meet and spend some time with all the people who have been supporting us and posing for us at events throughout the year.  We thank you for being our friends, and we apologize if we’ve been busy with event coverages that we don’t get to just spend time with each other.

As the last major event of the year for the Cosplay Community, it was great to see members of the arkadymac.com family: our correspondents, photographers and Cosplay Models who have been helping out with the blog over the past months.  It gives us a sense of closure for the many good things and accomplishments that we have achieved this year, and, hopefully, motivation for us to work harder this coming New Year.   We had a nice time catching up on each other, and of course, the chance to take pics with each other.

Kyle: Descent into Darkness

Kyle_as_Toka_kirishima_tokyo_ghoul_feature_0001

We at arkadymac.com are glad to have our Cosplay Model Kyle come back for her second exclusive feature for us this year, her first being Kyle: Rhapsody in Red.  We’re lucky to get the chance to shoot her this past Halloween at Playland at Fisher Mall, and her cosplay this time surprised everyone, ourselves at arkadymac.com included.  Presenting our Cosplay Model Kyle as Touka Kirishima of the manga and anime Tokyo Ghoul.  Photographs by BryMac and Xtian Mack.

Kyle_as_Toka_kirishima_tokyo_ghoul_feature_0002

“She is cool and calm, but in ghoul mode she’s really violent and badass,” Kyle replied when we asked her why she chose Touka Kirishima as the character to cosplay for this feature.  “Oh, and her love for rabbits and fear of birds makes me laugh.”

Kyle_as_Toka_kirishima_tokyo_ghoul_feature_0005

Most cosplayers choose specific characters to portray because they feel they share similarities with them.   We asked Kyle what her connection to Touka was.  “We’re both true to our emotions.  I like meeting new people, but I can also get territorial or biased.  Touka tries her best to fit in to human society despite how much she hates their kind.  That’s how I am right now.”

Kyle_as_Toka_kirishima_tokyo_ghoul_feature_0011

Touka Kirishima is a prominent character in the Japanese manga and anime Tokyo Ghoul, a series Kyle particularly enjoys.  “I like it.  A lot.  The storyline, the characters, the gore, and everything.  I love it!  It’s so interesting.”  She tells us she likes other shows along those lines and makes sure to let us know she can’t live without watching the latest episodes of ANC’s The Walking Dead.

Kyle_as_Toka_kirishima_tokyo_ghoul_feature_0003

The life of a student has Kyle pretty much occupied.  “I gots lots of schoolwork! I make sure to pass it all!”  When finally earning some much-deserved free time, she makes sure to spend it on reading manga and  comic books, drawing, experimenting and researching on sword props. making cosplans and end up not doing it.  “I love art,” she tells us with a smile.  ” I’d like to be a tattoo artist someday.  I just love tattoo designs.  It mesmerizes me.”

Kyle_as_Toka_kirishima_tokyo_ghoul_feature_0018

We ask her about the things she likes.  “Tacos, and candy.  Lots of them!”  I like going to conventions, having my photos taken, admiring other awesome cosplayers, jogging to death, having photoshoots with Sir Mack and Sir Bryan, sleep, and everything that involves art.

 

Kyle tells us that despite her hectic school life, she still gets to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.  “I enjoy bonding time with family, eating resto food, going out with my friends, photoshoots, modelling in front of the mirror when no one’s around, and wearing layers of makeup and scaring people.”

 

Kyle_as_Toka_kirishima_tokyo_ghoul_feature_0019

 

We close this feature with some words from Kyle:  “I want to thank my mom and family for supporting me in my cosplays, Francesca, Max, And Tita Eunico for helping me in this shoot, to Angelica, and to everyone who’s reading this right now,thank you very much.”
