Despite being postponed due to a typhoon, GTMACCon 4 opens up 2015 as a successful and well attended event. We took personal interest on the GTMACCON 4 Pinoy Komiks Cosplay, as it featured all the amazing and innovative things the local comic industry had to offer. Held last January 10, 2015 at Fisher Mall in Quezon City, the event was a celebration of the wonderful possibilities Pinoy Komiks still has in store for todays generation of readers.

Slam Dunk Cosplay Photoshoot 2015

Slam Dunk Cosplay Shoot_2015_0001

 

As an anime that has made a lasting impression on anyone who has watched it, Slam Dunk was quite a phenomenon here in the Philippines since its first release in the 90s.  Being an anime about a sport close to the Filipino heart, it has enthralled and entertained generations with its funny, quirky, dramatic, and exciting story and colorful, believable characters.  It probably is no surprise why cosplayers, photographers and videographers alike would grab any opportunity to bring the exploits of the team from Shohoku to life in a shoot that would challenge everyone taking part in it to the limit.

As the last major event of the year for the Cosplay Community, it was great to see members of the arkadymac.com family: our correspondents, photographers and Cosplay Models who have been helping out with the blog over the past months.  It gives us a sense of closure for the many good things and accomplishments that we have achieved this year, and, hopefully, motivation for us to work harder this coming New Year.   We had a nice time catching up on each other, and of course, the chance to take pics with each other.
