Dinny Grayson : Challenges

arkadymac.com highlights not only the best events in the Philippines but also its cosplayers. We are fortunate enough to get a small interview with her. Here is our feature on a great artist and our dear friend, Dinny Grayson.

Dinny Grayson comes from her nickname and the last name of her favourite comic book character, Richard “Dick” Grayson. It was meant to be because she wanted to be Mrs. Grayson – as in marry Dick Grayson but then her brother, Gelo Grayson, cosplayed him and that ruined her image of Dick Grayson. Now it is definitely just a family name and she no longer have a crush on Dick Grayson.

Chibi, a Japanese word or term for small, also is a certain category for cosplayers who are really young, usually those 12 years old and below.  A good number of chibis participated in the competition and all were able to showcase their talents in front of an eager and enthusiastic crowd.

Held within the first day of the Pinoy Otaku Festival 2014: FANTASM event, the event was an enjoyable one with lots of participants and spectators.  The contestants were judged by a panel consisting of prominent chibi cosplayers:  Bolen herself, Ashley Misaki, Izaiah Luke Buelos and Belldandy Chii.

It was a great competition, with the chibi cosplayers judged by their peers on stage but all were good friends afterwards, playing around, chasing each other, just being kids.  When you’ve been to enough cosplay events and conventions, it’s still always a delight seeing children having fun while cosplaying.

The highlight of the event was the individual cosplay competition where cosplayers showed their awesome talents and costumes as they performed to a hyped and appreciative crowd.  Around 80 cosplayers competed it the contest, with the eventual winners being Mark Anthony Vibas taking first place with his outstanding and very amusing performance as Deadpool, Elsa of Frozen version.   “Let it Go” will never mean the same again with his antics, to the delight of the crowd.  He also had his sister with him,  Callista Kailey, as Anna, with a joint performance of “For the First Time in Forever” from Frozen.  She won as Best Female for her performance.  Other winners included 2nd Placer RB Cheng as King Gojulas, 3rd Placer July Mary Rea as Hakuyuu Ren and Ian Quinto as Headmistress Fiora for Best Male.

Of course we were there for the cosplayers who had a great time showing off their talents and colorful costumes to the crowd.  We always enjoy seeing them having fun and mingling with the crowd and mixing it up with fellow cosplayers.
