Hero Face-Off 3 Live Coverage

Good day Cosplayers! I am right here right now inside Megatrade Hall 2 to cover the 3rd Hero Face-off (and my 2nd Hero Face-Off event).

This is sponsored by Royal Tru Orange, Selecta Cornetto, and ABS-CBN Multimedia (including Hero TV and AMPED).

This is hosted by Dino Imperial and DJ Tracy.

They are judged by John Herrera, Mark Cerrada, and Ruel Ferrer.

Cosplayers from AMPED were introduced, which also include International Cosplayer, Jia Gold Bustamante, portraying Shaiya, gives away Shaiya T-Shirts to the crowd.

Cases of Royal Tru Orange were raffled during the event, which I also hoped to get one because it is one of my favorite softdrinks of all time.

Cathy of Hero TV also did a dance showdown with Dino as the part of the first intermission just before the League of Heroes Competition.

They also have the Ilabas ang Kulit Segment Dance-off.

And the last intermission was presented by Tanya Markova.

Categories are as follows:

Kids Squad – 16 kids.

Winner – Alsea Luke Guelos as Voltron

League of Heroes –  4 groups.

Winner – Angry Birds as Super Sentai Jetman

Face-off Category – 80 cosplayers.

Winner – Maria Ann “Ira” Orduna as Azure Dracula.

Philippine Toy Convention (ToyCon) 2012 Day 2 : Bloggers' Edition

Well, ToyCon is not complete without someone blogging the event, so I included their pictures in this blog and I think they are the reason why ToyCon gets better and better every year. I hope that I will see them in the next Cosplay Conventions, probably Hero Face-off and ToyCon series.

I also included Kuya Azrael, one of the organizers of ToyCon, who is also a blogger.

Philippine Toy Convention (ToyCon) 2012 Day 2 : Alodia and Ashley Gosiengfiao Edition


At last! The long wait has come! I took pictures of these prominent Gosiengfiao sisters, Alodia and Ashley.

For more than 10 cosplay events I’ve attended before, this is the first time I really saw them in person.

I recognized that Jun 16, 2012 is Alodia and Ashley’s Day. The same date me and my girlfriend watched Eugene Domingo’s Kimmy Dora 2 and the Temple of Kiyeme, which also stars Alodia Gosiengfiao as Sang Kang Kang, the antagonist of the film.
