Cosplay Rumble Zone at SM Center Las Pinas



One-of-a-kind exciting cosplay action struck the south last weekend as Cosplay Rumble Zone went into high gear on August 23, 2014 at the event center of SM Center Las Pinas.  With lots of games, prizes, giveaways and even more surprises for everyone, organizer iCOZPLAY Philippines lives up to the huge expectations it set for this event as hundreds trooped to the venue from far and wide to take part in this spectacle.  Bringing up the action is our guest photographer Christian Alizarez, who himself was having fun at the event.




Co Presented by SM Center Las Pinas, IEM and JEFUSION, and sponsored by MyPhone , Star Power Entertainment, Smart, and Wakfu, Cosplay Rumble Zone was a delight to the senses as much was going on all throughout the venue at all times.  The sponsors were very generous as well and happy for being part of this event, giving away wonderful prizes in their raffles and games: gift certificates, collectors items, and rare toys were given away to lucky attendees.  






At the event as well were amazing sets of toy galleries for enthusiasts as well as for the plain curious.  Of note was the Masters of the Universe collection and the Godzilla gallery.




One of the many features of the event was the fashion runway show by Star Power Entertainment, whose models dazzled the audience, dancing,singing and modeling as part of the segment.  




Upcoming dance group Raindrop gave special performances for the crowd as well and was really well-received.




Trey Sia as Loki and Xhan Xhan were part of the show with costumes specially made by Nash Leeho.




The main highlight of the event was of course the cosplay competitions, with many cosplayers in attendance battling it out for top prizes in the individual, chibi, and group categories.  All the cosplayers had a blast showing off their unique talents and colorful costumes in front of an appreciative crowd.  In the end, Christian Umali won in the individual category as Marvel’s War Machine while our cosplay model, Ashley Misaki, won in the Chibi division.  The winners got to take home great prizes but there were also other special awards given away, like a one-year modeling scholarship at Star Power.







Of course there were the costrippers who were having fun at the venue, happily having their pictures taken with the crowd.  It was evident that they were enjoying themselves at the event, taking selfies with each other and happily chatting with new-found friends.




What was noticeable was the number of elder folks in the crowd.  They seem appreciative of cosplay, and that of course is a good sign as cosplay is meant to be a hobby that anyone of any age or background can learn to like and appreciate.




With these and more, Cosplay Rumble Zone was a big hit to cosplayers and attendees alike,and we hope to be able to see more exciting future offerings by iCOZPLAY Philippines.
