This year, the event was graced by the presence of the ever-charismatic Kaname, the stunning androgynous cosplayer, Reika. (I'm a Reika fan~ especially of her Sheryl Nome <3), and one of the Philippines' well-loved Singaporean cosplayers, Jesuke Everybody was ecstatic with the guests' appearance since the announcement. It used to only be a dream, but Cosplaymania changed all that.
There were many highlights of the event such as the 3rd Cosplay Snapshot, Costume Building Contest (CBC), Project Cosplay(Solo and Group) and the Tournament of Champions(TorCh). Now, let me share with you my experience from it.
I apologize if my description about the event being quite vague. I blame it on my swirling head from all the excitement and joy that overwhelmed me. Everything's still a bliss, even today. (So, I'll leave it to Cosplaymania's DVD! I'm looking forward to watching it~~ hohoho)
Friends from all over the Philippines visited Manila to attend the event, and show support to their representing teams. We were very fortunate to get to know some very interesting people and of course, bond with those we've shared friendships with. (I find it amazing that people can become good friends even before they actually meet in person)
Well, going back to my original story-telling, the TorCh segment ended, and the winners were announced. Hearing our team's name mentioned had me weak on the knees for a bit and my mind kept swirling again.
And with this, I end the first part of our journey! I'll keep you folks posted for the second part! Stay happy!
