8th Philippine Cosplay Convention ( PCC 2015 )

8th Philippine Cosplay Convention 2015_0001

 

The Philippine Cosplay Convention had been my favorite yearly event since I began cosplaying and blogging, so even if we had never been asked to be their media partners I made sure to make time to drop by to, more than anything, just enjoy myself as a cosplayer with many others who share the same passion. Sharing this sentiment were thousands of other cosplayers who look forward to PCC because it had consistently been one of the most exciting events each year.

Cosplay Mania 12 as the Philippines’ Biggest Cosplay Event of the Year Coverage part 2

(Note: This event was way back in September but it’s only now I got to upload the pics.  Gomenasai!)

Well, hopefully you’ve seen Part 1, because Part 2 just means more pics.  People have been contacting us and were clamoring, just dying to see more pics of the event.  Well, maybe not.  But hey, got you curious, right? Fine.  More pics then.

Maybe there will be more female visitors here if I add more Kaname pics.

More and more Kaname

Oh, the incessant screaming and shouting from crazed fangirls.

Strangely enough, Derek Ramsay was there to promote an upcoming superhero show called Kidlat, or somesuch. Oh, the incessant screaming and shouting from crazed fangirls. Oh my poor eardrums.
