The “ToyCon 2010” Adventure – Day 2

Narito ang link for Day 1 kung sakaling ayaw mong gamitin ang iyong navigational skills.

So for Day 2, nakahiram ako ng DSLR sa ate ko kaya medyo matino at madami akong nakalap na pictures for the event. Actually, nung Day 1 e asakin na ung DSLR, kaso ang bright bright ni ate nakalimutan nya ang charger. Buti na lang at nahiram ko ung charger ni Zaide so now that I am charged and ready to go, imma kwento na.

Nakarating kami ni Zaide sa Day 2 ng ToyCon round 1130 am. Rodel and Ron would follow later that day.  Medyo wala masyadong tao round this time kaya nakalibot kami ng mas maayos. For today, team cosplayers naman ang magpapakitang-gilas on stage. The cosplayers were busy doing their stuffs outside the event area so pumasok na muna kami agad since wala pa rin naman kaming mapipicturean sa kanila.

However, before doing the rounds on the place, we noticed na hindi kami “in”. Either people were wearing wigs, donning their favorite character’s costume, or simply just having accessories and stuffs related to their favorite comic book hero and/or anime character. So we decided to check out a chikara hat stall and bought a hat that we can wear while in ToyCon. I bought a green hat with bear ears innit and Zaide bought an orange hat with an anime expression.

After buying our hats, we decided na umikot na at ang una naming nakita ay ang Dark lord of the Shit Sith.

At the artist’s booth, na malapit lang sa may Star Wars area, you can have your caricature drawn for P100. Ayoko magpacaricature kasi baka dalhin sa NBI, hehe.

After checking out the artist’s booth, we also checked out the entries for the toy photography contest and fan arts that were on the wall. And of course, after we refilled ourselves with Coke Zero (yes, may free unlimited supply of Coke Zero pa rin) we decided na to roam around and take pictures of things that we found interesting. Here are some of the shots that I took:

Since mga 4PM pa magsisimula ang cosplay at upon checking ay onti pa lang ang cosplayers (some are still getting ready to prepare), we decided to catch some lunch first. After we got back, well, get a tissue for your drool guys.

Mas madami sa album ko sa Facebook, haha. Anyway, when we got back, mineet na namin si Ron at Rodel na kanina pa rin pala kumukuha ng pictures ng mga cosplayers. After magpiktyur-piktyur, we decided to take a seat in front of the stage for a better view of the cosplayers that will perform that day. Akala ko mag ra-ramp model lang ung team cosplayers in their costumes, hindi pala. Meron din palang skit na ginagawa on stage. At dito na nagsimula ang highlight ng araw na ito.

Anim ung nagperform ng skit for team cosplays. Well, some stood out on their presentation (at buti na lang e sila din ang nanalo for that day), pero some stood out for other reasons. Merong naka-ilang ulit ng performance, merong mishaps, at merong celebrity cosplayer. Well, “mukhang celebrity” cosplayer.

I was switching from camera to video (using my celphone) at meron ata akong instinct sa pamimili kung video o picture ang kukunan ko. Kasi ung mga unforgettable highlights na nangyari were caught on tape! At syempre, isshare ko senyo ang mga nakita ko that day.

Narito ung dalawa sa memorable team cosplay performance that day, not because they won, but because of something else.

Team Cosplay 5

Ang Team Cosplay 5 portraying Inuyasha. Ang performance naman nila ay 2 beses umulit, ngunit hindi dahil humingi ng encore ang mga audience at hindi rin dahil sira ang mp3 nila.

Dito na pala ako nagsimulang kumuha ng video. At narito ang dahilan kung bakit sila umulit:

Ok naman ung performance nila, un nga lang, medyo dull. Hindi ko masyadong maalala ung performance nila. Basta ang natatandaan ko, namatay si Inuyasha  tapos nagakap sila nung leading lady.

Team Cosplay 6

At sila naman ang huling Team Cosplay. X-men naman ang pinortray nila.

Ang highlight naman ng performance nito ay meron silang “mukhang celebrity” cosplayer. Kita nyo ung si wolverine? Dalawa ata ung cinocosplay nya e… si Wolverine at si Michael V.

At narito ang video ng kanyang grand entrance:

Two-part ung performance nila. Ung girls nag ramp-model sumthin tapos ung guys may skit na kalaban nila si Juggernaut. Hindi sila masyadong nakaconnect sa audience e. Saka medyo mahina ung audio nila. May Michael V pa naman sila, sana inutilize nila ng maigi, nakuha sana nila loob ng audience.

After ng team cosplay ay ginanap naman ang GameGirl. Ang gamegirl e parang beauty contest ng mga girls na naka costume. Ung Grey Elf ung nanalo and she deserves it. Very intricate ung costume nya saka pinaghandaan talaga. 13 girls ang sumali sa contest na ito and below are their pictures. Inislide ko na lang para hindi mahirap mag scroll down, sisihin mo pa ako pag nagkacarpal tunnel syndrome ka, =p.

Pagkatapos ng Gamegirl Event, we roamed around again to take pictures of life-sized statues/statuettes/busts/toys of comic book heroes. Nafascinate ako kasi ang galing nung detail nung mga statues, parang they brought to life ung mga nababasa at napapanood ko.  Syempre, we also took some pictures of some cosplayers and booth babes. Here are some of my shots:
