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.
