An event with people in cute costumes and neon-colored wigs is nice and fun, but in all honesty, cosplay is not my cup of tea. There's something that holds me back in shooting cosplay. Maybe it's the weird feeling of seeing adults acting like kids dressed in anime suits. It takes a lot of getting used to. But then as the event's title suggests, "Cosplay For Passion and Fun", this is their passion. And no doubt it's fun. We all have our own interests, no matter how quirky can some of those be. To each his own. And as the oft-used (and oft-abused as a blanket excuse) Tagalog phrase says, "walang basagan ng trip." So be it.
Just observing how cosplayers prepare, act, and get excited about this kind of event makes you appreciate the whole thing. And kudos to most of them who were able to really exhibit their creativity and love for anime in the cutest way they could. (But let me tell you, not all cosplayers are created equal. Some are lucky to look the part.)
Anyway, here are some shots I was able to take in the event. Couldn't cover everything. I took what I could. I got interested in what I could. And oh, please don't ask me about names of some characters. Some of them are familiar, but I have no idea about their names. =)
I didn't get to finish the program, but congratulations to the winners! Hats off to the other participants, as well. What you did took a lot of guts.
THANK YOU to Klassiquo Productions for another well-attended, well-organized event. Keep on making this kind of events, they certainly add buzz to the community. To Miss Alexis Valle (cute cosplayer herself), thank you for the free tickets you gave our group (BULLET). Much appreciated. I'm really looking forward to more of Klassiquo's events. I know they already have a bunch lined up next. Stay tuned. =)
