Most of the cosplay we present on arkadymac.com tend to be Japanese- or Western-themed or inspired, as cosplayers nowadays have grown up in the influx of popular media from other countries. This is probably why people often tend to overlook Filipino-inspired ones, which is sad since there is a wealth of talent and ideas and lots of inspiration to be had with original homegrown Filipino characters from Pinoy Komiks, mythology, and folklore.
With this thought in mind, we took personal interest on the GTMACCON 4 Pinoy Komiks Cosplay Pre-event, as it featured all the amazing and innovative things the local comic industry had to offer. Held last October 31,2014 at Fisher Mall in Quezon City, the event was a celebration of the wonderful possibilities Pinoy Komiks still has in store for todays generation of readers. arkadymac.com is a proud event and media partner to the GTMACCON 4 Pinoy Komiks Cosplay pre-event, and we’re happy bringing you the highlights of this exciting event.
The event was kept exciting with Meet-and-Greet and Book-signing sessions by the people who have kept the local Komiks industry alive, such as Pol Medina Jr., creator of Pugad Baboy comics, Berlin Manalaysay creator of Combatron of Funny Komiks, Nikolo Salazar creator of Marianing comics, Gener Pedriña creator of Sanduguan comics, Russell Reyes creator of Liga ni LikeMan comics, Niño Balita creator of Samuel Espiritista comics, Solomon Lim creator of Alphario: The World Connection, Kimberly Anne Dy Buncio creator of Keiko the Dragon Kid, and John Nano creator of Kwatrokantos comics.
There were also art and cosplayer portrait sketching by some really great artists, as well as a drawing contest by sponsor, Titus Pens, called, “Pinoy Superheroes Vs Mga Aswang.”
There were games and contests for the audience that kept everyone on their feet, with fun prizes given out.
All around the venue, various booths from sponsors and partners offered a wonderful variety of items, most especially local komiks, which attendees particularly liked and purchased.
We took a video of their Pinoy Komiks Superhero presentation:
There was also the presentation for the GTMACCON 4 PInoy Komiks Cosplay competition withSolomon Lim (Dennis Blake), Mark Par (Eurid), Vanessa Aquino (Lucy Patweetums), Ivan Valerio (Boy Bakal), Kiel Se (Heronimo), Patrick Gavino (Manila Man), Ivan Parero (Pinoy Totoy), Ralph Villaluz (Sandata), Xanthe Nicolas (Narra), at Clark Navarro (SpaceMando) as they vied for the chance to be named champion at the Main Event.
Our Cosplay Model Ashley Misaki was there as Samuel Espiritista, also one of the competitors.
We at the team enjoyed ourselves at the event as it was refreshingly new for us having that fun feeling of enjoying Filipino-inspired cosplay and getting to know and acknowledge the people who have kept Pinoy Komiks alive. We hope to see you on December 6, Saturday, at Fisher Mall in Quezon City for GTMACCON 4 Pinoy Komiks Cosplay – Ang MAIN EVENT as we continue to be their event and media partner.
