Yesterday I checked out Ozine Fest 2011 – an annual event organized by the Otakuzine Anime Magazine staff to gather Anime Fans around The Philippines. It was held in SM Megatrade Halls 2 and 3 in SM Megamall. This is actually my first time to witness a cosplay event with hundreds of cosplayers to grace the stage – a total of 370 has registered.
Cosplay in the Philippines has evolved and this year showed that it was taken to the next level. I myself was surprised to see both teens and adults putting on so much time and effort to create, style and enhance their costumes. Hands down to them! There were some who really found a way to stand out from the rest and catch the attention of the cosplay-goers and photographers.
The band opened the show at 4PM performing live anime songs. I just forgot the name of band but they truly are amazing – pure talent. Take a look at some of the photos I took while roaming around. But forgive me, I’m no anime fan and I have no idea who’s who. Except for Dragonball, Machine Man and Marvel characters. Yes, I’m a kid of early 90’s.. 😛
And you might have noticed, I have a new domain based on the watermark of the pictures.. 🙂 Please visit my official photoblog site as well. Thank you! 🙂
