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.

We’ve done over close to a hundred event coverages this year, so we thought of just taking it easy during the last event of the year and go around to meet and spend some time with all the people who have been supporting us and posing for us at events throughout the year.  We thank you for being our friends, and we apologize if we’ve been busy with event coverages that we don’t get to just spend time with each other.

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.

Otakuzine Launch Party, Part 3: Cosplayers

arkadymac.com was an official media partner for the Otakuzine Anime Magazine Launch Party last November 30, 2014 at the Mall of Asia SMX Function Room 1.  Hundreds of people got to attend the event that promised lots of fun for everyone, with long lines since opening.  Lots of fun activities for everyone to enjoy were lined up for the day, with games, cosplay, karaoke, booths, game and card tournaments, and other attractions that will make everyone’s otaku experience a memorable one.

Highlighting  the Otakuzine Anime Magazine Launch Party was special guest cosplayer Misa from Taiwan.  She is known all over the world for her spectacular cosplays, and she got to visit the Philippines for the second time for a special appearance.  There was a press conference for her at Meeting Room 2 of the SMX with members of the local Otaku media, who were eager to as Misa lots of questions.  She was then cosplaying Silica, a character from the manga and anime Sword Art Online.  For more info and photos of her at the press conference, click here.

The Otakuzine Anime Magazine Launch Party was particularly enjoyable for us because we got to see and meet some of our Cosplay Models again.  arkadymac.com’s Cosplay Models are the wonderful cosplayers who we have featured on our website, and we are happy to get to call each other friends as well.  For more photos of our Cosplay Models at the Otakuzine Anime Magazine Launch Party, click here.

Events are fun because these present the rare occasion when we get to see our cosplayer friends again and catch up on what’s been going on with each other.  I’m sure any cosplayer can relate, and that’s why we get to enjoy ourselves as much as we can: chatting, posing for others, posing with others, selfies with each other, spazzing over each other’s characters, role playing, the small, strange, simple things that make us happy and glad we got to meet each other through cosplay.  Happily, there were a lot of them that weekend. And we sure enjoyed taking photos of them,
