After her radio talk show appearance at Radyo Inquirer DZIQ 990 and just before her special guest appearance at Otacon with the arkadymac.com team, Mina went with us on a short detour for a quick shoot at a place she had never been before somewhere south of the Metro.  Earnestly curious and inquisitive, she took time off exploring this unique Japanese enclave hidden in the heart of the city.   In between snaps she tells us how her life has been one fun and exciting journey since she began cosplaying, with warm and fond memories she’ll keep for lifetime.

As the last major event of the year for the Cosplay Community, it was great to see members of the arkadymac.com family: our correspondents, photographers and Cosplay Models who have been helping out with the blog over the past months.  It gives us a sense of closure for the many good things and accomplishments that we have achieved this year, and, hopefully, motivation for us to work harder this coming New Year.   We had a nice time catching up on each other, and of course, the chance to take pics with each other.

We don’t often go to gaming events as much as we do cosplay and otaku ones, but I really have to say ESGS 2014 is personally one of the best events this year:.  arkadymac.com is a part of the media team for ESGS 2014: Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit, the biggest two-day video game convention and E-Sports competition this year, and we are glad to be able to bring you highlights of the second and last day of this exciting event.

There was the Open Floor Cosplay Competition where our friend Izaiah as Black Dragon from the online game Dragon Nest was named Champion. He got lots of great prizes like a heavy trophy, Razer earphones, cash, and a cheque/plaque even bigger than him.

Jillian and I had fun going around and trying out the many games and demos. It’s been a while since we can just relax and play games while actually doing coverage. Not just us, we were sure everyone of all ages were enjoying themselves indulging the gamer inside them. Of course we had time to do the rounds too with our Cosplay Model, Mikki Nyan, and our PRO, Karlo, and helped out with the coverages with ur partner otaku blogs.
