Bataan Anime Convention 2017

 

A fun and promising Japanese pop culture event up north  took place last  May 7, 2017 at Bataan Anime Convention 2017 at the Pilar Convention Center (LTO), Ala-uli, Pilar in Bataan.  It got to be an interactive convention where con-goers and guests were free to get to know each other as they even got to wear name tags at the event for other people to get to know them by.  With special guest cosplayers Eiri Mina, SUZUME, Irumi, Gibs and Saber Reinana headlining the event, Bataan Anime Convention 2017 was nothing less of an engaging event for everyone in the north who love anime, cosplay, and Japanese pop culture.

WPPP Photo & Video Congress 2013 Cosplay Coverage

WPPPhotoCongress_0008
Although I should just have spent a wonderfully warm Sunday at home recuperating from attending too many events and photoshoots the week before, I just could not say no to the invitation of our wonderful friend and cosplay associate correspondent Eiri Mina to attend a rather interesting event.

The WPPP Photo & Video Congress 2013 was held at the Megatrade Hall 3 of SM Megamall last June 7, 8 and 9 with much fanfare.  It was organized by the Wedding and Portrait Photographers of the Philippines (WPPP), an organization of professional photographers whose purpose is to promote and foster the goals and programs of wedding photographers.

The event featured lots of attractions for photographers and curious, visitors alike to enjoy. Booths of major camera and accessory  brands were there to give out freebies and interactive demonstration of their products.  Models were all over the place too, endorsing products, then posing for the crowd, as well as having fun interacting with each other.  There were also seminars about photography going on in different parts of the hall almost all the time where both pros and newbies alike get to learn and share their knowledge with their peers.

All these great things aside, I was really there for the cosplay. There weren’t a lot of cosplayers there as it was not really a cosplay event, but there was a pretty handful on hand to pose for the cameras as they added a bit of color and variety to the event. Photographers had a heyday taking their pictures in the many interesting backgrounds provided at the event.

It was a refreshing experience for the cosplayers as they got to interact with photographers in a different kind of setting as they promote cosplaying as an interesting subject for photography.

Invitational Otaku URule Photoshoot 4 (IOP4)

Outdoor photoshoots are great opportunities to get really great shots with lots of action amid great scenery.  However, one must contend with nature’s less convenient side. like the heat, sudden rain, humidity, mud, and lots of bugs.   Of course, the reliable senior field correspondents of arkadymac.com, Nyanbu and Obito-kun, will never mind going head-on against such perils and just laugh in the face of discomfort as they bring you our special coverage of the Invitational Otaku URule Photoshoot 4, or IOP4.  It is a photo marathon where cosplayers are paired with photographers and have photoshoots inside the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife in Quezon City.

Obito-kun and Nyanbu report for duty despite almost going mad from the summer heat.

 

The theme for this particular event was “groups,” so cosplayers whose characters are from the same anime, manga, game, comic, or cartoon had a chance to show their stuff and had fun with their fellows.   Despite the intense heat and humidity and even a strong, sudden rain shower in the afternoon, those who participated in the even had a blast as another successful cosplay event came to an end.

Here are some of the photos we took at the event.  Thank you for dropping by and please do visit us again soon.

Eiri’s Night Out

dragonbistroeiri_043

After an event that had horribly gone wrong (again), Eiri and Nyanbu tried to make the best out of it and had a pictorial.  Well, that’s how it ended up happening anyway.  I apologize for my very amateur photos.  We didn’t have our great photoman that night and I had to take them myself and I still have much to learn. Much.  Good thing Eiri is gorgeous enough for the two of us.  Will post more photos and higher res photos later, okay?  Just need to make this post for that Monday morning rush.  Thanks, and do visit us again.
