Doll Glam with Alodia Gosiengfiao



arkadymac.com was on hand to cover Doll Glam, an event featuring this latest beauty and fashion trend.  The world’s most prominent cosplayer, Alodia Gosiengfiao, was on hand to personally promote and lead the event, along with photographer, model and blogger, Tricia Gosingtian.  It was an afternoon of fashion, glamour and excitement as the activity center of SM North EDSA The Block was filled with fans, enthusiasts and the curious.




Starting sometime past four in the afternoon, the event featured the two top guests introducing Doll Glam to the audience that had gathered and sharing how getting that doll-like look can be easier than imagined.  They held a demonstration, giving two lucky ladies a live doll glam makeover.  The results of course were extraordinary.






There were also attendees who took the chance to present their doll glam look to the public.  Ten of them were chosen to go on stage in front of an appreciative crowd and were made VIPs for the event.  They also received gift packs from the SM Beauty Section and the participating sponsor brands.





After the segments, Ms. Alodia was gracious enough to take photos and selfies with her many avid fans who came to support her event.  She said she was pleased to have been part of this unique fashion event.




We were also glad to have our Cosplay Model Julia there to partake in the other attractions Doll Glam had to offer.  Select makeup, hair and nail brands were giving out doll glam makeovers.




Top brands Dolly Wink, BYS, NYX, Pixy, Heroine Make, Kate, Maybelline Color Show, Cutex, Palty, Beautylabo and Lucido L. Plus were there to showcase their great products, and Julia was there enjoying herself as she got dolled up another level.




The great folks at Dolly Wink even had us shoot in their dainty booth.




Julia had a blast with the nail art too.






And of course, Julia was quite popular as she posed with and for people from the crowd who were there that evening.  We also had time to take photos with the other event-goers too.




Not exactly a cosplay event, but we had much fun nonetheless at Doll Glam.  We’re glad to have brought the highlights to you.
