Gelo Grayson: Dedication

arkadymac.com highlights not only the best events in the Philippines but also its cosplayers. We are fortunate enough to get a small interview with him. Here is our feature on one of the most talented crafters in the Philippines and our dear friend, Gelo Grayson.

The New Adventures of Superman and Batman

After making an appearance at the Batman 75th Anniversary Exhibit at the Activity Center of The Block, SM North EDSA, our super fiends from cosplay group Justice Ph stepped out a bit for a quick tour of the Sky Garden.  They figured it was a slow night in Gotham anyway and that Saturday nights should really be for a fun time out in the city.

So Gerard, Tim and Gelo as Superman, Batman and Red Hood set out on a grand adventure that spanned a whole city (SM City), sharing greetings with mallgoers, taking photos, and just plain having fun with people who were also enjoying their Saturday night.

Oh, sorry for the quality of the photographs.  I still have much to learn.  Nonetheless, it was still a fun experience, and for our heroes, it’s still a job well done.  Catch more of them at their FB page, Justice Ph.

Batman 75th Anniversary Exhibit at The Block, SM North EDSA

Three-quarters of a century since his first appearance in a comic book, the legend of Batman, the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, is still very much alive today, captivating the imagination of generations of readers and audiences with his struggles and quest for justice.  With fans and followers spanning 75 years in countless countries, the Philippines also gets to celebrate this milestone with the Batman 75th Anniversary Exhibit at the Activity Center of The Block, SM North EDSA.

Featured in the exhibit is a Bat Computer display with a full-scale statue of Batman.  Folks can’t get enough of it, of course.

Around it were numerous display cases of toys, figures, replica vehicles, and dioramas of anything and everything about the Batman universe.

There was also an art gallery featuring the various artwork with the different versions and reincarnations of the Batman franchise throughout the years.  They offer insight into the evolution an growth of Batman as a comic book and cartoon character throughout the years, rendered in stunning renditions by accomplished artists.

The centerpiece of the exhibit was the Batmobile Experience, where folks can get to try out a sleek Batmobile replica for any 500 peso purchase of Batman merchandise.  Unfortunately, picture-taking is not allowed inside so this was as far as we could go.

We were fortunate to catch up with some members of cosplay group Justice PH who made an appearance at the exhibit.  Batman was there, with Nightwing and Red Hood,and even Batman’s buddy Superman later on that night.  They said they just had to drop by to help celebrate 75 years of Batman, in cosplay, of course.  They then found themselves busy having their photos taken and taking photos with the crowd that had gathered for the exhibit.  The cosplayers tell us that they are glad that the mallgoers are appreciative of their cosplays, as they never run out of people asking them for a shot or two or ten.

It isjust a simple exhibit, but worth the time if you’re just nearby and if you’re a big Batman fan, like me.  Here’s to more years of the Caped Crusader.
