Annually there would be a group of cosplayers who’ll hold a photoshoot to start the year, where in it can be in groups or individually. They cater to all cosplayers whether they cosplay from a game, an anime, visual kei, or jrock artists who they love or photographers who would love to take wonderful shots of the cosplayers. Early this year, AniZone has started their annual photoshoot, In The Zone 2: Bringing to Life.
Already a yearly tradition for us, the arkadymac.com coverage team went to Binondo, Manila to welcome the Year of the Fire Rooster amid frenetic dragon and lion dances, bright lanterns, loud firecrackers, spectacular fireworks, and, more importantly, Chinese delicacies you’d only get to enjoy on that particular day. So Happy New Year, everyone! 恭喜發財，身體健康！祝大家一個新年快樂。希望你們有一個很好的二0一六! Please join us in our adventures as we took part in the festivities with our friends at what is thought to be the oldest Chinatown in the world.
Otaku Asia Magazine has been one of the leading printed publications for the Filipinos who are fans of anime and the Japanese culture, and they have been very supportive of the local cosplay community, even more so with their feature Extreme Moments 5 out-of-town cosplay photoshoot held in the historic island of Corregidor late last year. Their Issue#37 will be the first of the year, and it will be showcasing the great work of some of the most talented cosplayers and photographers in the country.
One of the biggest cosplay projects ever assembled in the country had come to its 5th and what could be final installment. The Extreme Moments Out-of-Town Cosplay Project Series started over a year ago, and from its audacious start at Capones Island it has since spanned some of the most beautiful locations in the Philippines, and it has made what would most likely be its final stop at historic Corregidor. After months of extensive and careful preparations, TeamXM, the organizers behind the Extreme Moments Out-of-Town Cosplay Project Series, got to pull off another amazing feat with Extreme Moments 5, “The Final Wrath,” where 88 talented cosplayers, photographers and their supporters went on a cosplay adventure of a lifetime to the fortified island south of Manila Bay. arkadymac.com was there as the media team to have covered all five installments of the series.
With cosplay and anime events being churned out endlessly but with the same old content, it is encouraging to know that there are still those from the community who are willing to step up and offer something more relevant and closer to the heart of those who have long nurtured the passion for cosplay. Far from the usual mall venues where events have become all so common, Loving Rainbow Garden Cosplay Festival took a bold move in having a new but refreshing venue to accommodate those who had so much passion for cosplay and anime. The result was a fun new event that left everyone happy, fulfilled and pleasantly surprised.

We had the unexpected but nevertheless fortunate opportunity to meet some of our really great cosplayer friends while covering an unrelated event early this year. They tell us that they just got to know of each other online and had decided to meet up and probably have a shoot together. They have become prominent cosplayers of characters from the wildly popular Japanese webcomic, manga and anime One Punch-Man, and they have had much fun portraying some of their quirky but memorable cast.
