Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special 2014: Day 2

Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special 2014 Day 2_0001

We’ve done over close to a hundred event coverages this year, so we thought of just taking it easy during the last event of the year and go around to meet and spend some time with all the people who have been supporting us and posing for us at events throughout the year.  We thank you for being our friends, and we apologize if we’ve been busy with event coverages that we don’t get to just spend time with each other.

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.

arkadymac.com Guesting at DZIQ Radyo Inquirer 990 AM

radyo_inquirer_cosplay_guesting_0001

 

It was a big day for arkadymac.com as we got featured at DZIQ Radyo Inquirer 990 AM last weekend in celebration of our second anniversary.  The panelists were made up of Creative Director, Xtian Mack, along with our Cosplay Models Mina Kim, Keileen, Queenie and Deric.  The guesting was a first for most of us so were all as anxious as we were excited to be able to share our views on cosplaying on air with a wider audience.

 

radyo_inquirer_cosplay_guesting_0005

 

It got a bit tense when the program started, but we eventually settled in to the topic at hand.  We all love cosplaying after all, so we didn’t have a problem expressing what we felt about the subject.  It turned out to be an hour of fun, entertaining, and enlightening talk about cosplaying in the Philippines and cosplaying as a hobby that people can enjoy and be passionate about.  Our Cosplay Models got to share their own experience about cosplaying, like their preference in characters and how they prepare their cosplays.

 

radyo_inquirer_cosplay_guesting_0006

 

Thank goodness for commercials as they gave us brief breathers and some chance to goof off.

The program also touched on how cosplay changed the lives of our models, of how cosplay has helped them gain their self esteem and how cosplay has opened opportunities for them to have more friends and have a wonderful time with them.

 

radyo_inquirer_cosplay_guesting_0009

 

We also got to discuss how cosplaying has contributed and has given back to the community through charity work. arkadymac.com has in its two years of existence participated in and helped with numerous fundraisers for charitable institutions. We have also covered and participated in feeding programs, hospital and orphanage visits where we got in touch with children and helped bring smiles to the people who need them the most.

After the program we had a short photoshoot for some memories from a particularly special day for our small arkadymac.com family.  We then had lunch at a nearby restaurant, all with a healthy appetite.

We couldn’t have gotten these opportunities if it weren’t for the love and support from you, our valued readers, in helping us through these two years.  We really, really appreciate it.  We are glad to have reached our second year of bringing the best of cosplaying in the Philippines, and we hope you can keep on supporting us for more years to come.

The places to shoot were once again limited so it was a bi difficult at times.  The guards can be bothersome at times but I noticed that they were showing maximum restraint that day.  Still wondering if it will continue on Day 2.

Queenie and Deric

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0006

 

arkadymac.com’s cosplay models Queenie and Deric return to do the cover of our website this week’s with this exclusive double feature.  Photography and post-editing: BryMac, Executive Producer: Blessma, Director/Writer: Xtian Mack.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0010

 

It’s always wonderful when two people who share the same passion get to deepen their relationship over time.  Queenie and Deric started out as good friends hanging out and going to cosplay events together. Now a couple, the two of them agree that the time they spend together in and out of cosplaying has become doubly fun and enjoyable.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0004

 

For this feature, Queenie cosplays Kurousagi, a rabbit-eared girl from the light novel Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sō Desu yo? (Problem Children are Coming from Another World, aren’t they?) a Japanese light novel series with an anime adaptation.  Kurousagi is a powerful being, though she is often easily distracted and is constantly  inconvenienced by the other main characters, like Sakamaki Izayoi, cosplayed by Deric.  Izayoi is one of the main characters who gladly left his old world for a new one in the hopes of finding more excitement and adventure.  He is overconfident and haughty, yet he is also shown to be caring and protective of the people around him.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0008

 

Although their romance was not strongly established in the anime, the two characters had gotten along well as the story progressed.  Queenie and Deric tell us that this is their first pair cosplay, and that although they admit that it’s not quite there yet, they really have fun cosplaying this couple.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0003

 

They tell us that they first met at IOP 5, a cosplay photoshoot way back May last year.  Since then they’ve become good friends who would go to cosplay events together and enjoy themselves as much as they can.  They’ve also become endorsers for Cosmic Bytes, a major cosplay goods shop, and say that they both enjoy spending time with the amazing folks there.  Outside cosplay, they both enjoy playing LOL (League of Legends), saying it’s fun playing it as champions who keep on fighting together.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0009 

 

How would Queenie describe Deric?  She says Deric is a really funny guy who enjoys making people laugh. What makes him fun to be with? She says she and Deric have many things in common and they both enjoy doing silly things.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0005 

 

And how would Deric describe Queenie?  “She’s really something,” he tells us.  What makes her fun to be with? Deric says they share lots of things in common and that he always sees her smiling and laughing whenever they’re spending time together.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0001

  

Queenie says that pair cosplays are fun because you get to be comfortable knowing you have someone to enjoy it with.  Deric says it’s a great feeling to have someone to care about especially when they both understand what they do.

 

 QueenieDericMondaijiPair_0007

  

Queenie and Deric invite us to watch out for better cosplays from them in the very near future and say that they’ll keep enjoying cosplaying for as long as they can together.  arkadymac.com will continue to bring you great new features on this pair, so please continue supporting them in all their endeavors.  Thank you all very much for visiting.

Queenie: Only Clear Skies

Queenie_Kurousagi_0030

 

We at arkadymac.com are ecstatic to present our newest cosplay model, Queenie Michelle, on her very first exclusive online feature.  Photography and post-editing: BryMac, Executive Producer: Blessma, Director/Writer: Xtian Mack. 

 

Queenie_Kurousagi_0024

 

Queenie is as bubbly and sunny as they come.  She is the most refreshing face on the cosplay scene and people just can’t get enough of her.  Though she admits to being just another normal girl, people around her know that she is indeed one exceptional cosplayer.  She has already had product endorsements and is a familiar face at events.

 

Queenie_Kurousagi_0002

 

Why does Queenie cosplay?  “I love anime!” she says without hesitation.  Queenie admits that when she fancies or falls in love with a character, she’s compelled to cosplay them.  She says she tries her best to give life to her characters because she can relate to them and that she loves them that much.  Queenie says that cosplay is challenging because she’d want to be as faithful to the characters as best she can.

 

Queenie_Kurousagi_0007

 

For this feature, she cosplays Kurousagi, a rabbit-eared girl from the light novel Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sō Desu yo? (Problem Children are Coming from Another World, aren’t they?) a Japanese light novel series with an anime adaptation.  Kurousagi is a powerful being, though she is often easily distracted and is constantly  inconvenienced by the other main characters.

 

Queenie_Kurousagi_0029

 

Queenie loves attending cosplay events and conventions as much as her already busy schedule allows.  Seeing many people enjoy her cosplays and ask to take pictures of her or with her really makes her happy.  She finds cosplaying really fulfilling this way, to have her efforts appreciated by different people.

 

Queenie_Kurousagi_0033

 

As a normal girl, she enjoys playing League of Legends for a round or two, or three, or four, maybe more.  She manages some personal pages and loves interacting with her audience.  When asked who she would like to thank, she said she’d like to mention her mom, who has just been nothing but supportive of her cosplaying.  She also likes to thank the many photographers who have taken great photos of her.

 

Queenie_Kurousagi_0017

 

 

Queenie is thankful to all the people who have supported her this far and she vows to become an epic cosplayer in the future.  We at arkadymac.com know that she’s well on her way to achieving that, and hope we can help her out by featuring more of her here as our website’s newest cosplay model.
