Ashley: Sky High


We have always been fascinated by this talented little lady for her fierce performances in cosplay competitions, which is why we are glad to have Ashley Misaki as our newest Cosplay Model here at arkadymac.com and publish her first ever online feature.  Photos and post-editing by Bryan, Bless as Executive Producer, Xtian as Writer/Director.


Ashley Misaki is a familiar face in and around the cosplay circuit.  She started cosplaying 2012 and has since made quite an impact in competitions here and abroad.  Even at her young age she’s never been afraid to go head to head with older, more experienced competitors, never afraid of jumping off the stage and charging through the crowd to do her routine, never afraid to perform in front of hundreds of people, all eyes on her every move.  Her performances never fail to impress and astound, and these have brought her many awards in competitions all around the country.


Ashley’s appeal and charm has made her a cosplay celebrity in her own right.  She has become an endorser for companies like Red Fox Technologies and several cosplay shops.  She also helps promote cosplay events as well, and she even has a convention named after her.


At events, people can’t get enough of her and Ashley enjoys taking pictures with her adoring supporters.   Before and after competitions, she can be seen acting her age, running around event halls with her friends, especially other chibi cosplayers.


Outside cosplaying, Ashley says she’s a normal 7-year-old who enjoys watching shows from Cartoon Network.  After school work, she likes playing games on her Xbox, but admits she loves Dance Central most of all.  She also enjoys the company of her friends who she often gets to see at events, and she has fun playing with them as much as she can.


Surprisingly, Ashley tells us she wants to be a pilot in the future.  Something about being the sky and clouds appeals to her, and for now, perhaps, flying with all its freedom will be her dream.  But until that time comes, she’ll continue cosplaying because she says it’s something that she really loves doing and that it makes her family really proud of her.


Ashley would like to personally thank everyone who has supported her throughout the years and promises more exciting cosplays and performances in the future.


Thank you all for visiting, and do drop by again soon for more features on Ashley here at arkadymac.com.

Arkadymac.com Christmas Cosplay Photo Shoot



And before we knew it, it was almost Christmas already.  We at arkadymac.com want to spread some cosplay Christmas cheer so we invited some really amazing cosplayers to do a promotional Christmas photoshoot for us.  The drizzly weather that first day of December didn’t stop us from making the most of this rare opportunity.  We’re really happy to present our Christmas offering.  Photos and post-editing by Bryan, Blessma as Executive Producer, Xtian as Writer/Director.


We originally planned to just shoot all of them separately for their own features on the website, but since they got along so well we took shots of them as a group.  The result was a morning of fun despite the otherwise cloudy and drizzly day at an undisclosed location in Ortigas.


On the roster of our newest cosplay models are Ashley, Ianah, Yanna and Gabby.  All of them are talented cosplayers in their own right and are quite known in and around the cosplay circuit.  Most importantly, they have been ardent supporters of the website for quite a while so we’ve been dreaming of this shoot for the longest time.


Ashley is a sweet young lady who has already won numerous competitions thanks to her amazing cosplays and fierce performances.  When not cosplaying, she simply enjoys being her age, playing with her friends and family on and off event locations.


Ianah is a celebrity cosplayer and creative digital artist, blogger, dance troupe member, Nihongo-jin, and an otaku.  She has landed many endorsement and promotion deals from prominent companies but admits that she just loves cosplaying wherever she can squeeze it into her very hectic schedule.


Yanna is relatively new but her cosplays leave quite an impression, so much so that we just had to invite her for a shoot with us. She’s been holding her own with costumes she has made herself and loves being onthe creative side of things.


Gaby is known mostly for her outlandish, sometimes outrageous cosplays at events and conventions.  She attracts lots of attention though she says she’s really in it for the sheer fun of being there in cos. We’d also like to thank her for coming up with some of the fun poses for this shoot.


We’ll be coming out with their individual features real soon so do watch out for them.  In the meantime, do enjoy our short Christmas feature.  Happy holidays everyone.

MSI Cosplay Reloaded



MSI Philippines held Beat It:  Overdrive Reloaded 2o13 at the Activity Area of SM North EDSA Annex 3 days over the weekend, and it focused on MSI’s gaming capabilities and products as well as a host of popular online games like Dragon Nest and Avatar Star.  Tournaments were held for the various games and were well attended by gamers and enthusiasts alike.









One of the highlights of the event was the MSI Cosplay Reloaded Competition, with focus of course on Dragon Nest and Avatar Star game-inspired cosplays.  The event had several different categories like best chibi and special/costrip categories.




After the competition, the cosplayers disappeared, which made it the quickest cosplay-event we’ve ever been to.  We at least got to take some photos of the attendees.





















Thank you for dropping by and we hope you visit us again for more features here at arkadymac.com
