The love for art and cosplay transcends countries and nationalities, which is why it is always welcome news to have international cosplayers and artists visit the country to meet up and spend time with those of the same mind. We were glad to catch up with prominent Vietnamese cosplayer and illustrator Miu a while back for a special Meet and Greet session at Red Monster Shop in Maginhawa, Quezon City, with our Cosplay Model and Correspondent Nicole helping us cover the event.
A total of 61 intrepid souls sailed off to distant Fortune Island off the coast of Batangas for one of the most ambitious collaborative efforts the Philippine cosplay community has ever seen. Extreme Moments: Castaways pushed the limits of creativity, skill and imagination of cosplayers and photographers alike in an out-of-town outdoor adventure of a lifetime.
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.
Pushing the limits of having a unique and exhilarating experience for cosplayers and photographers, the Extreme Moments Out-of-Town Cosplay Project Series once again set off on another grand adventure after a wildly successful first installment in Capones Island, Zambales earlier this year (click for our coverage of Day 1 and Day 2). Again filling an entire tourist bus with eager intrepid participants, the team set off to Mt. Samat in Bataan for yet another memorable trip.
A happy Chinese new year to everyone as the arkadymac.com team welcomed the year of the wooden sheep in Binondo, Manila. No cosplay events to cover here (although there were some random cosplayers there), but we just set out to enjoy the sights and sounds that Chinatown happily offered on this occasion.
Cosplay meets fashion at a refreshing new event that showcased the best of local talents and creativity. Grand Cosplay Runway 2014 was the first of its kind in the Philippines as it was quite a spectacle at SM City Baliwag last December, drawing in participants from near and far, and arkadymac.com is happy to be a media partner for this event.
