Already nine months since it started this year, the Cyberzone Cosplay Craze series got to make its last stop down south of the Metro at SM City Sucat where lots of cosplayers and spectators came by to have great time. Cyberzone Cosplay Craze is a fun and innovative revolution on how cosplay events are done, and it has been happening this year, not just in Manila, but all throughout the country. Sponsored by SM Cyberzone and organized by cosplay.ph, Cosplay Craze has been bringing absolutely free events closer to where the cosplayers are, offering huge prizes and giveaways that even major events can’t match. But most of all, it has given cosplayers a reason to meet up with others like them within their communities and have an enjoyable, non-cramped, stress-free afternoon of cosplay fun.
