After two wildly successful adventures in scenic Capones Island and Mount Samat this year, the Extreme Moments Out-of-Town Cosplay Project Series continues to take Philippine cosplay and photography to the next level, being the first cosplay group to be granted the privilege to shoot at  Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, an open-air museum and heritage park in Bagac, Bataan.  Set in a rustic locale of restored historic mansions and surrounded by mountains, forests and the sea, Extreme Moments 3, with its 60 intrepid participants, provided all the elements for a cosplay experience like no other.

Excitement and high expectations have been going around the community as the third edition of successful Extreme Moments Out-of-Town Cosplay Project Series has been announced. Filling entire buses of cosplayers and photographers for fun and amazing shoots in distant but spectacular locations outside the city, having shot at Capones Island in Zambales (click for our coverage of Day 1 and Day 2) and at Mt. Samat in Bataan (our coverage can be found here) for the first two editions both earlier this year, Extreme Moments has become a highly anticipated event for the community for its efforts to provide a refreshingly unique experience far different from the usual conventions people have gotten used to.

Our beach cosplay adventure started early this year on a far-flung island called Capones, almost 4 kilometers off the coast of Brgy. Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales. The first edition of what would be retroactively (and aptly) called the Extreme Moments Out-of-Town Cosplay Project Series, was planned as a straightforward location shoot for intrepid photographers and cosplayers with earnest desires to take their skills to the next level, and the group got much more than what they signed up for as they battled the elements and gravity and ended up with an adventure of a lifetime.
