Joe Inoue Fanmeet at Wldlife_0001

 

International musician and artist Joe Inoue took time off his vacation to meet his ardent fans at the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center in Quezon City.  “Wildlife” is widely known to cosplayers as a place to do photoshoots, but this afternoon it became an unlikely but very accommodating place for the popular singer to get up close and personal with those who have been nothing but supportive of him.

Some dedicated Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) fans and cosplayers got to organize a fun group shoot a while back at the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center in Quezon City.  Calling it “Anime Meets Live,” this group of cosplayers got to show their love and appreciation of the Rurouni Kenshin  franchise by portraying characters from both the original anime series as well as characters from the more recent live action movies.  The result was an enjoyable afternoon with feels and fun in abundance, and we at arkadymac.com were there to share and document the moment with them.

We chanced upon a group of cosplayers having fun one warm Sunday at Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center in Quezon City.  Every so often, small cosplay groups take it upon themselves to organize simple photoshoots at familiar places.  As cosplay events and conventions may be far in between sometimes, these photoshoots present rare opportunities for some bonding time among friends and present chances to meet new ones.

We spent one one cloudy but otherwise pleasant afternoon at a nearby park for a particularly interesting shoot with a couple of our friends cosplaying as characters from Monster High.

Monster High is a popular American fashion doll franchise whose characters are inspired by creatures from monster and horror movies.  Their merchandise are everywhere as children and teens just love them.  And with Halloween coming up, we don’t think any other cosplay can be as fitting.

We had the pleasure of taking photographs of our friends for this themed shoot from Monster High Scaris: City of Frights.  We have Dukesa cosplaying as Rochelle Goyle, Winterdoll as Jinafire Long, and Nekomi Kasai as Clawdeen Wolf.

We had a pleasant time last weekend as the DOTA II Cosplayers group held a fun shoot at the the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center.  It was a simple day of bonding with old friends and meeting new ones, as well as having photos of their cosplays taken  before school started.

It may have been a warm day as participants gathered at the Tea House, but that didn’t stop cosplayers and photographers alike from taking the chance to go around the park and have brief photoshoots with each other.

For others, it was an opportunity to meet up with old friends and catch up on each other’s lives.  There were those who got to meet new friends through their mutual interests and hobbies.  Throughout the event, prizes were given away though raffles, and it kept everyone excited as everything else was going on.

Our public relations officer Kaloy was there to take part in the event as well as he enjoyed mixing it up with the other participants.  Keeping the peace were these commandos, and they’re glad to report that nothing untoward happened on their watch.

Oh, we also got to see our friend Carina on a separate shoot in the park.  Her Daenerys cosplay is always a sight to behold.

For the uninitiated, it may not seem much but these small events do indeed foster closeness within communities that strive to keep cosplay alive and enjoyable.  We’d like to thank the organizers for putting together this cozy little gathering and having us over to cover and take part in their event.

It’s now our second year of covering a National Cosplayers of the Philippines charity event.  Called “Cosplay Picture Mo, Tulong Mo,”  the group aims to collect enough funds for school supplies that would benefit 500 children from Brgy. Maybancal, Morong, Rizal.  

 

NCP_Cosplay_Picture_Mo_Tulong_Ko_0008

 

Cosplayers, photographers, enthusiasts, and other members of the otaku community show that they are always eager to  lend a helping hand as over a hundred of them were given the chance to do so at the event held last May 4, 2014 at the Ninoy Aquino parks and Wildlife in Quezon City.

This unique experience was organized by the National Cosplayers of the Philippines, an organization that has held many such events since its inception in 2010 involving cosplay as a means to raise funds for charitable causes and institutions.  This time around, participants were asked to bring notebooks, pencils and other school supplies for distribution to the needy schoolchildren  of Brgy. Maybarical, Morong, Rizal on May 25, 2014.

A lot of cosplayers and photographers were on hand to take part in the occasion, where cosplayers were paired with photographers as they took turns for individual and group photoshoots in the many different and fascinating locations inside the Ninoy Aquino parks and Wildlife in Quezon City.  Although the summer heat and humidity can be a little too much for anyone to bear, and the “traditional” downpour in the afternoon, the cosplayers and photographers still persevered in making sure they have the best poses for the best photographs possible.

Members of NCP and some cosplayers also made rounds around the park collecting donations from park-goers and afforded them the opportunity to take photos with them.

arkadymac.com sent out its Public Relations Officer Kaloy to help out in this event.  We’re also glad to have our Cosplay Model Czyrah participate in this event as a cosplayer.

At day’s end, all the participants have had their fill and more of photographs and stories to share about the event. What’s more of course are the boxes of school supplies and other donations for the children of Morong.  The National Cosplayers of the Philippines has always fostered the notion that cosplayers can have fun while helping others, and this was very evident from the enjoyment the participants had from joining.

We at arkadymac.com thank he National Cosplayers of the Philippines for a job well done in organizing this photoshoot and giving cosplayers the chance to make a difference in someone else’s life through this charity event.  We and many others look forward to attending and covering more such events in the future.
