Obito X Rin Photoshoot

ObitoRinShoot_0001

 

Real-life couple Kaloy and Doll pose for our cameras for this feature on this edition of arkadymac.com.  They’ve only recently become lovers although they have long since enjoyed cosplaying at events, something they really like having in common.

 

ObitoRinShoot_0010

 

For this feature, Kaloy cosplays Obito Uchiha while Doll takes on the role of Rin Nohara from the anime manga and series Naruto.  The romance between the two characters is implied in the story line but they have had a strained and complicated relationship that affects the Naruto universe.  Here we present “what might have been” scenes through this couple cosplay.

 

ObitoRinShoot_0013

 

We shot these on a warm, sunny Sunday afternoon at the ever-dependable Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center in Quezon City.  It was quite difficult to do shoots as there are many people around so we just had to improvise and make do with what we had.  I’m glad I had the assistance of truly reliable friends from Pitik Photography: Shin, Xander, Mike, Portgas, and Knots, who despite a long and tiring day before were still at it doing shoots at the park.

 

ObitoRinShoot_0018

 

We went all around the park for suitable locations, recounting the craziness of the things that happened the previous night after covering the 1st MyPhone Youth Tech Congress  event at SM mall of Asia.  Well, Kaloy and Doll had quite some fun, spending time together in cosplay, and with other park visitors taking pics of them and with them throughout the afternoon.

 

ObitoRinShoot_0006

 

It was an enjoyable day for us with these shots as the fruit of our labors.  Hope you enjoy them.

Kidlat Konvention Coverage / Heroes Cosplay Part 1

It was a time for local superheroes to shine at the Kidlat Konvention held at the Activity Center of SM Annex, SM North EDSA over the weekend. TV5’s action/drama series, Kidlat, has become a successful show during its run, and as its first season draws to a close, its staff and stars have decided to bring the excitement to the public with this fabulously flashy spectacle.

 

KidlatKon_Part1_0014

 Derek as Kidlat genuinely happy over the huge turnout and overwhelming show of support from the fans.

Derek Ramsay as the titular hero was warmly received by the crowd as he come on stage in full costume.  Shrieks and shouts and sighs from the audience never ceased as long as he was on stage. All the other cast from the show were also in attendance and performed for the crowd.  The event also featured TV5’s next series, Cassandra: Warrior Angel, and unveiled the cast and crew headed by Eula Caballero as Cassandra in full costume.

 TV 5 also sponsored the Heroes Cosplay event in partnership with Cosplay.ph, with around 70 individuals allowed to participate in the event.   Of course, Nyanbu and Kaloy just had to compete and perform to the crowd as Contestant Number 8 and 9 respectively.  Nyanbu performed as Nyanbu, the cat-ninja, and Kaloy debuts his new Storm Shadow outfit.  For their troubles, they got a Boardwalk loot bag filled with so many fantastic things that they felt like they were champions and were seen smiling wildly until the next day, when they finally felt the body aches that always come with attending a cosplay event for an entire day.

KidlatKon_Part1_0062

 Kaloy was more than glad to show off his new cos, classic Storm Shadow from G.I. Joe.

 

We applaud the organizers of the event for a job well done and we hope we get to see more of them in the future. As there were also many cosplayers who were there to compete or just to show their stuff to the crowd, we had a frantic time taking photos of them and with them.  Many thanks and adulation to Buraimaku for the really wonderful photos of the event.

Invitational Otaku URule Photoshoot 4 (IOP4)

The group Cosplay Famiglia with their take of the Black Rock Shooter game characters.

 

Outdoor photoshoots are great opportunities to get really great shots with lots of action amid great scenery.  However, one must contend with nature’s less convenient side. like the heat, sudden rain, humidity, mud, and lots of bugs.   Of course, the reliable senior field correspondents of arkadymac.com, Nyanbu and Obito-kun, will never mind going head-on against such perils and just laugh in the face of discomfort as they bring you our special coverage of the Invitational Otaku URule Photoshoot 4, or IOP4.  It is a photo marathon where cosplayers are paired with photographers and have photoshoots inside the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife in Quezon City.

 

IOP4_021

Obito-kun and Nyanbu report for duty despite almost going mad from the summer heat.

 

The theme for this particular event was “groups,” so cosplayers whose characters are from the same anime, manga, game, comic, or cartoon had a chance to show their stuff and had fun with their fellows.   Despite the intense heat and humidity and even a strong, sudden rain shower in the afternoon, those who participated in the even had a blast as another successful cosplay event came to an end.

Here are some of the photos we took at the event.  Thank you for dropping by and please do visit us again soon.

Say hello to our newest correspondent, Stephanie

stephphoto_0002

We at arkadymac.com always want to give you, our beloved readers, the best and hottest cosplay events and news from here and around the metro, which is why we have decided to expand our  little party of intrepid adventurers with the addition of our newest member, Stephanie. We hope that you’ll welcome her with the same enthusiasm we have for her.

stephphoto_0015

Stephanie has distinguished herself well in the field of battle, helping us out with our special coverage of Ozine Fest 2013.  With literally thousands of visitors and cosplayers in attendance over the three-day event, one can only imagine the kind of work we had to pull off. Luckily, Stephanie was there for that much-needed boost of morale when we needed it most, cosplaying as Vocaloid Hatsune Miku on her first assignment with us.

As the newest correspondent of arkadymac.com, Stephanie has been designated the role of Genki Girl. She is our source of bubbly youthful energy and an endearing smile that melts hearts, two things that Nyanbu and Obito-kun can’t supply for any sustained period of time, if at all.

stephphoto_0005

So with this post we feature the freshest face in cosplay reporting: Stephanie, in her inaugural photoshoot for arkadymac.com.  Her prettiness deserves a better location or venue, something we can hopefully provide at a later photo op.  She was quite shy at first posing for our great photographer, Buraimaku, but it eventually became evident that she was a natural in front of the camera.

Stephanie likes to watch anime, play video games, and share her thoughts on pop culture online, making her quite knowledgeable of the things this website is all about.  Her favorite anime series is Fairy Tail, and  its Erza Scarlet is her favorite anime character. The first anime she remembers watching is One Piece, when she was just 5 years old. She tells us she enjoys watching anime because she learns all kinds of interesting information from them, and that sometimes they teach about growing up and living one’s life as well.

stephphoto_0008

As for games she enjoy playing, she notes The Sims 3 (Expansion pack), Minecraft, Grand Chase Chaos Philippines, Pou, Candy Crush Saga, Audition Club Dance Battle Philippines as just some of the many games she indulges herself in with her spare time.

Stephanie shares with us that she got into cosplaying so that she can feel what it’s like to be a particular character.  She says that when she cosplays, she feels like she’s a popular celebrity as lots of people come up to her to take pictures of her and with her.  In that way she feels like a totally different person, but that it is an enjoyable experience nonetheless.  She recounts her first time cosplaying at the Cosplay market event where she cosplayed as Vocaloid Hatsune Miku.  As for future cosplay plans, she has quite a few.  She’d like to go as Alyss (Intention of the Abyss) from Pandora Hearts, Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail, Neko from K anime, Onizuka Hime also known as Himeko from Sket Dance, and Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji someday. These are indeed projects she tells us we should look forward to.

stephphoto_0003

For our readers out there, Stephanie has these words to share: Keep calm, and love cosplay and anime.

Expect to see more of Stephanie on our website as she helps us cover more exciting cosplay events in the future.  Stephanie says she’d like to see you all back here at the site soon.  Thank you for welcoming Stephaie along with us and we look forward to everyone’s support.

Ozine Fest 2013

IMG_8311

The entire staff of arkadymac.com goes full force in bringing you highlights from all three days of Ozine Fest 2013 held at SM Megamall. Nyanbu, Stephanie and Obito-kun brave the front lines to bring you all the great action.

 

 Day 1

IMG_8823

Nyanbu has it tough as he has to cover all three days of Ozine Fest 2013 at SM Megamall over the weekend.  Luckily, our wonderful partner Eiri came in as Rise Kujikawa to help the beleaguered and overwhelmed Nyanbu out.  First day started with a bang with Battle of the Bands and Anime Karaoke, with great prizes going to the winners.  Of course there were booths and stalls, like a wishing shrine, matsuri exhibit, a maid cafe, a host club, tarot reading, and a whole lot more.  Lots of fun and excitement were in store for the visitors, with special guests gracing the event.

Nyanbu likes to go on and on but it’s three in the morning and has to work in a few hours so he can go to Day 2 later.  So here are some photos of the event.  Thanks for all your support and please enjoy the rest of our coverage. Please stay tuned.

Day 2

IMG_9185

No rest for the weary kitten as Nyanbu brings you our special coverage of Ozine Fest Day 2 at SM Megamall held over the weekend. Absolutely lots of people attending the event and an amazing multitude of cosplayers were there to be seen.  There were so many cosers that Nyanbu had a hard time keeping up. Ah, must be that age thing.  Or maybe it was because he was constantly chasing Sean Vergil, a rather hyperactive but very cute little Son Goku.

As Nyanbu will be off to work soon, we must apologize for giving you this humble installment of pictures but we promise to update the post real soon, okay? And please stay tuned for our Day 3 coverage, by far the best coverage we ever had.

Thank you for all your support.

Day 3, Part 1

OzineFestD3Pt1_004

Ozine Fest 2013 is undeniably the biggest cosplay event this summer, with thousands of visitors over the three day-affair, filling the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls to to capacity.  So to give you the best possible coverage of this amazing event, the entire senior officers and staff of arkadymac.com went to Ozine Fest in full force and ready to tackle the unforgiving crowds, and the hordes of screaming yaoi fangirls and crazed otaku.

OzineFestD3Pt1_003

And because giving our loyal friends, visitors, and readers the best coverage possible is our priority, we have enlisted the services of our newest cosplay correspondent, the lovely and genki Stephanie as Hatsune Miku.  It is with open arms (and a sigh of relief) that we welcome Stephanie into the group as she has distinguished herself well on the field of combat despite being only her first field assignment for the blog.  We’ll have a special feature about Stephanie herself real soon so please stay tuned for that as well.

OzineFestD3Pt1_005

Lots of attractions and events going on in and around the venue, so the staff had to work thrice as hard to bring you the highlights.  Xtian Mack was in charge of public relations,  Obito-kun providing attention and publicity for the site, and Stephanie being our cover girl for guests and cosplayers alike.  Special acknowledgement to our tensai photographer, Buraimaku, for his amazing snapshots of the event.

We hope you enjoy our special coverage of Ozine 2013, but we urge you to come back in the next few days as we’ll be posting more great photos.  Thank you all for your support.

Day 3, Part 2

OzineFestD3Pt2_005

With the recently concluded Ozine Fest 2013 undeniably being the biggest cosplay event this summer, we actually had to separate our Day 3 coverage into several parts.  With lots of attractions going on at any given time within the Megatrade halls of SM Megamall that Sunday, people were just in a frenzy taking part in the event.  Ozine Fest also attracted literally hundreds of cosplayers to the venue, which was why it was a tall order just to keep up with them and bringing you, our beloved readers, our special coverage of the event.

IMG_8288

We are thankful that the sweet and genki Stephanie has stepped up to the challenge and lent us a hand, being our field correspondent on Part 1, the previous post.

Now Kaloy, a.k.a. Obito-kun, takes charge in bringing you Part 2 of our Day 3 coverage.  He was quite a hit with the people himself as more than a hundred asked to take pictures of him and with him.  He was up to the challenge as we bring you more highlights in the continuation of our special Ozine 2013 coverage.  And of course, we would have been lost without our tensai photoman Buraimaku taking splendid snapshots of the event.  Special thanks to Mika for her unwavering support as well.  Please tune in within the next few days for more updates and more photos. Thank you for all your support.

No, please. There isn’t much to begin with.  Nyanbu having too much fun with these zombies at Ozine Fest 2013 Day 3.

With this post we conclude our special coverage of Ozine Fest 2013, undeniably the biggest cosplay event this summer.  It was also the most successful event of the season, with thousands coming in to visit and cosplay through its three-day duration.   It was long and exhausting and crowded, but the event sure was a lot of fun.  Although we perform our job for this blog very seriously for the sake of our extremely loyal readers, we must admit that this is a job we enjoy doing as we get to meet different kinds of people, get to make new friends, get to take pictures with visitors and make them happy, and more importantly, get to better appreciate this unusual but nevertheless amazing activity we call cosplaying.

 

IMG_8311

Nyanbu, Stephanie and Obito-kun are proud and happy to have brought you our special coverage of Ozine Fest 2013.

We would like to thank you, our beloved readers, for taking the time to drop by the website.  As long as you are there to support us, we will not stop bringing you the hottest cosplay events in the country.  We would like to thank the cosplayers who have posed for our cameras.  One of these days we will have the time and manpower to get all of your names so that we can thank and acknowledge each and every one of you properly.  To the organizers of the event, congratulations on a job well done and we look forward to more in the (near) future.  To our amazing photoman, Buraimaku, for his wonderful photography, we are always grateful.

And for our concluding part we have Nyanbu guiding us through the rest of the highlights of the event.  He hopes you have enjoyed our humble coverage and hopes you’ll visit us again for our next event coverage.  Thank you for all your support.

No, please. There isn’t much to begin with.  Nyanbu having too much fun with these zombies at Ozine Fest 2013 Day 3.

Ozine Fest 2013, Day 3 Part 1

OzineFestD3Pt1_004

Ozine Fest 2013 is undeniably the biggest cosplay event this summer, with thousands of visitors over the three day-affair, filling the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls to to capacity.  So to give you the best possible coverage of this amazing event, the entire senior officers and staff of arkadymac.com went to Ozine Fest in full force and ready to tackle the unforgiving crowds, and the hordes of screaming yaoi fangirls and crazed otaku.

OzineFestD3Pt1_003

And because giving our loyal friends, visitors, and readers the best coverage possible is our priority, we have enlisted the services of our newest cosplay correspondent, the lovely and genki Stephanie as Hatsune Miku.  It is with open arms (and a sigh of relief) that we welcome Stephanie into the group as she has distinguished herself well on the field of combat despite being only her first field assignment for the blog.  We’ll have a special feature about Stephanie herself real soon so please stay tuned for that as well.

OzineFestD3Pt1_005

Lots of attractions and events going on in and around the venue, so the staff had to work thrice as hard to bring you the highlights.  Xtian Mack was in charge of public relations,  Obito-kun providing attention and publicity for the site, and Stephanie being our cover girl for guests and cosplayers alike.  Special acknowledgement to our tensai photographer, Buraimaku, for his amazing snapshots of the event.

We hope you enjoy our special coverage of Ozine 2013, but we urge you to come back in the next few days as we’ll be posting more great photos.  Thank you all for your support.

This went on throughout the day with participants intermingling and swapping amongst themselves, all eager to get the best shots possible and having fun with they were at it.

Despite the heat and the fatigue, everyone who participated had a great time having their photoshoots in the different locations within the park.  At around 5pm or so, the event ended with group pictures and words of gratitude from the organizers for the support and enthusiastic participation of all who came that day.

As the sun finally set over the park, everyone said their goodbyes and parted ways with fond memories and expectations of great photos of the day that was.  Congratulations to Otaku Urule for a another successful event and everyone expects more such events in the future.
