Cyberzone’s Women of Cosplay 2011

    It’s been very busy these last couple of days and I am still preparing my costume for Toycon 2011. Last Saturday, my team-mates in The Philippines’ X-MEN Cosplay Team assigned Anna and I to attend the Cyberzone’s Women of Cosplay 2011.

SM Cyberzone's Woman of Cosplay 2011

Cyberzone gave our team 5 slots to represent our group, but unfortunately, only Anna a.k.a. Storm and I are available. There’s 2 schedules for our team last Saturday, first the Toycon Presscon at Eurotel Function Room, Pedro Gil, Manila and 2nd the Women of Cosplay 2011.

I woke up around 6:00am in the morning and left around 7:00am. I arrived at the mall around 9:45am. I went to the Comfort Room to go pee pee and re-touch my makeup because I am perspiring. There’s a long walk from LRT2-Santolan Station to SM Marikina. A very long foot bridge is connected from the LRT Train to that mall, around 5-10 minutes’ walk depending on how fast you can go.

When I came back, they are already rehearsing; I took a couple of shots of the stage while heading towards them. The practice didn’t last long and I wasn’t able to do the rehearsal >.< Then they just briefed Anna and I to help me out. I was so nervous, I honestly felt like I didn’t deserve to be part of it, for me, there are so many Woman Cosplayers out there in PH who are well-known compared to me. I have Cosplayed only few characters.

I told one of the staff members that I am nervous and then I asked him why us (X-Men). He said, “To make a difference in the Cosplay Industry. Because, as we all know most PH Women Cosplayers portray Japanese-anime characters and since you guys are Cosplaying Superheroes, it makes you different than the others”. Anna and I were so touched, and we realized that he was right. 🙂

The Event started at 3:00pm and since the practice was over, I just hung-out and walked around the Mall while Anna went to Divisoria to buy a wig. I went to buy soap, extra socks, tissue and water. Then, when I came back there’s a free lunch, oh and btw, they also gave us a free breakfast.

The other female Cosplayers and I started to get dressed around 2:00pm. After putting my make up on, I took pictures of the Female Cosplayers with me.

I am so nervous but it was fun! The Event started and I am afraid to forget my Catwalk as Anna and I are the first people to walk. But everything goes well and the highlight of the Event is the catwalk of Ms. Alodia Gosiengfiao who is very successful in the Cosplay Industry and the first female Celebrity known because of her Cosplaying in the Philippines.

The Philippines X-Men Cosplay Team June 4, 2011 X-Men: First Class “X-Force” @ Robinson Manila

I as Domino, Cable, Pyro, Spyke and Gambit was assigned in Robinson Manila last day (June 4, 2011). Call time is 1:00pm and I arrived around 1:20pm and started to prepare because the appearances will start at 2:00 and last until 6:00pm.

I’m in a bit of a hurry to put my make up on but I stay calm and relaxed or else while putting on the white make up, I will have perspiration and get sweaty. My hands are kind of shaking, I wasn’t able to eat my lunch and only drank coffee when I left my home. My sister-in-law fixes my hair a bit before I leave too. She gave me half a piece of corn while I’m on my way to Robinsons Manila. Haha! Yeah! My breakfast and lunch is that – Corn 🙂

When I’m good to go, I wait for the 4 of them to go outside the Men’s CR and to bring our belongings to a safe area, where no robbers are allowed 🙂

I don’t know what to do yet, it’s different compared to June 1st. We stayed at the back of ticketing booth where there is an X-Men Poster and free face painting for people of all ages that’s going to watch X-Men: First Class.

We also take a solo shot for each of us.

My Epic shot with Cable. BTW, Cable is Domino’s Partner in X-Force.

More information about Domino here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domino_%28comics%29 and here: http://marvel.com/universe/Domino_%28Neena_Thurman%29

So then, some kids arrived and asked to have pictures taken with us and it continuously happened, before they have their face painted, they asked first to have pictures with us or sometimes adults also asked to have our pictures taken with them.

After an hour, there was a guy who came and assisted us to go around the Mall. We went to the First Floor and walked to every side of the mall up to the 4th Floor. Some people who passed by asked us to take some pictures with their kids. Then, when we came back, we took a break and ate our food. They brought us KFC with some kind of Chicken Fillet. Our break was around 4:15pm until right before 5:00pm.

I am so hungry and I feel like a monster while I am eating.  Then, after that, there are still people who are asking to have pictures even those people who are not watching X-Men. It’s free and it’s our pleasure to have them taken our pictures.

Before we finish, we ask the guy from the mobile to take a photo of us for a group shot. We copied the poster!

I really had a great time yesterday with my team mates even though we are only few.  All of the Philippines X-Men Team will be seen at the upcoming TOYCON 2011, June 19, 2011 @ SM Megamall



See you all there!

The Philippines X-Men Robinson’s Mall Tour: June 1, 2011 Advance Screening X-Men: First Class

Credit to Robinsons Movieworld

Recently, my group mates and I in the Philippines X-Men Cosplay Team, had been contacted by Robinsons to amuse the moviegoers who were about to watch the X-Men: First Class movie. Our team leader agreed with Robinsons, so then our group was divided up and sent to each Mall each day. I voluntary came last June 1st for the advance screening with my 2 siblings and sister-in-law.

Robinsons gave us lots of free passes and even more passes to other members of Phil. X-Men, but sadly the passes were only valid for that day and can’t be used after that. So, one of our leaders gave me 3 passes for my siblings and sister-in-law.

The X-Men Advance Screening Passes:

I asked my brother Myles to take photos of us while we are in our costumes. The line is pretty long, as people started to line up around 7:00pm and we are standing at the back of the “Cars”. The X-Men posters are inside, after the Ticket Section, so we don’t have any background to utilize.

The Moviegoers line for advance screening.

Here are the sample shots taken last June 1st.
