Metro comic con 2009 report

tags: cosplay, comic con, 2009, philippines, manila, final fantasy, bleach, action figures, pictures, photos

It’s been a while since I last updated and I know that my 100 bajillion readers are interested to know what I’ve been up to the past few months. I know this may come as a disappointment to some of you but I am not dead yet. I’m sorry. I merely contracted a debilitating case of internet addiction which rendered me incapable of doing anything that requires more than a minute of attention span.

On more interesting news, The first metro comic con was held at sm megatradehall on aug 8 and 9. I went there with the intention of geeking out and finding models/cosplayers to test my new lens on.

It’s my first time to attend a Philippine cosplay convention and I was expecting to see boatloads of fail but I must say that I was fairly impressed. The costumes were really well made and the cosplayers were fairly attractive in general.

I’ll try to write a more detailed report on the next entry but for now here are the pics: Click on the images to see them in high resolution (the entry is truncated. Click on readmore to see the rest of the photos) I'll post more pics on my multiply tomorrow click here for link

Oh, If you see yourself in any of these photos, do contact me so I can send you higher resolution pics.

Let me guess... you went on Sunday? I went on Saturday and didn't see any cute cosplayers. However, I did see a midget Darth Vader.

I was there on sunday at around 5pm and everywhere i looked, there was moe
