Cosplay at History Con 2017

 

We at arkadymac.com are grateful that History Con gave cosplay a bigger role this year as they have vowed to be bigger, better and bolder than ever.  In just two years, History Con has established itself as Manila’s biggest entertainment convention ever, and as conventions go, cosplay has become a colorful and fascinating part of the festivities.  History Con 217 has been very receptive and appreciative of cosplay, being very generous with prizes, privileges and benefits to attending cosplayers through all four days of the event.

With her spectacular concert still fresh and alive in our minds, we happily share exclusive and official photos from last weekend’s LiSA – Another Great Day in Manila Concert from cosplay.ph.  It was an affair to remember as LiSA performed her best hits in front of an eager and enthusiastic Filipino audience.  She candidly admitted she was afraid that nobody knew about her in the Philippines, but when LiSA got to see firsthand the almost-full Samsung Hall at SM Aura, she knew she was pleasantly wrong as hundreds of fans and supporters turned up to watch her perform at her first-ever concert in Manila.

It’s not often that we get to have high-caliber Japanese performers come to the country for a concert, and yet this year we are graced with a tremendous opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the best new artists in recent times.  LiSA, one of Japan’s most watched up-and-coming singers, will be coming to the Philippines for the first time, and it’s definitely a rare chance to experience such amazing talent live.
