Photoshoot for a Cause

Cosplayers show that they are always eager to  lend a helping hand as over a hundred of them were given the chance to do so at the Photoshoot for a Cause event last weekend.  This unique experience was organized by the National Cosplayers of the Philippines, an organization that has held many events since its inception in 2010 involving cosplay as a means to raise funds for charitable causes and institutions.  This time around, participants were asked to bring notebooks, pencils and other school supplies to be given to the children of House of Refuge Foundation in Parinas, Project 8, Quezon City, a group that strives to help the needy in our society, particularly abandoned and orphaned children.

Over a hundred cosplayers and photographers were on hand to take part in the occasion, where osplayers were paired with photographers as they took turns for individual and group photoshoots in the many different and fascinating locations inside the Ninoy Aquino parks and Wildlife in Quezon City.  Although the summer heat and humidity can be a little too much for anyone to bear, the cosplayers and photographers still persevered in making sure they have the best poses for the best photographs possible.

At day’s end, all the participants have had their fill and more of photographs and stories to share about the event. The National Cosplayers of the Philippines has always fostered the notion that cosplayers can have fun while helping others, and this was very evident from the enjoyment the participants had from joining.  We at arkadymac.com thank he National Cosplayers of the Philippines for a job well done in organizing this photoshoot and giving cosplayers the chance to make a difference in someone else’s life through this charity event.  We and many others look forward to attending and covering more such events in the future.
