Yesterday, Sunday, I went to MOA to meet some of my cosplayer friends.
It was the Best of Anime 2010 at the SMX Convention Center, and cosplayers, cosplay hawkers, yaoi-loving people, gamers, photographers, anime lovers, enthusiasts, junkies, and simple oglers all marched there — with the sale in MOA going on, and another event in SMX. The MOA complex is inexplicably crowded and I am starting to have claustrophobia.
But still, good thing that I joined the crowd, because I got to hit two birds with one stone! I’ve been eyeing to go to the 31st Manila International Book Fair, also in SMX. It was their last day there. So I dragged the cosplayers in the fair first.
There are several booths, and even some creative ones.
Here are some of my finds:
And look! My first nominee for the Search for the 2011 Planner is from IBON foundation.
And after an hour or so of circling around the fair, we went upstairs to look for other friends. And yes, the search for one but one cosplayer! SKY!!! YES! And that day. That was just one very lucky day! I just don’t know who was he cosplaying though.
Notable cosplayers that day (some I know, some I do not.)
Some playing around
I am supposedly doing my debut in cosplay on that day, but my funds got used up with all the thesis, and duties, and other academic stuff I would shun away from talking about here. So yeah, no cosplay til next month.
P.S. When in MOA, I have this habit of going to Quickly to buy Taro Milk Tea. It was a habit I formed after knowing that Quickly Milk Tea is only available on select branches. Although yes, I can find other milk tea joints in other places, but Quickly Taro Milk Tea still has a different taste and feel in the mouth. ALSO I was about to meet up Ame and have milk tea near her dorm in Taft (just in front of St. Scholastica’s College) after knowing that Zen Tea has another branch there. MILK TEA CRAVING? Yes!
