Cosplay Mania 2012

I, Ryan, my sister, and Nix went to Cosplay Mania 2012 last Sunday, September 30, at the SMX Convention Center. This was the biggest cosplay event I've ever been to. It was crazy! Lots of people went to portray their favorite characters, take photos (like me!), and see cosplay royalty Reika and Kaname. There were fewer merchant booths than I expected, but that was okay because if there were more booths, the place would have been packed.

Blair and Alisa Bosconovitch from Tekken! :D

There were lots of things going on during the convention; simultaneous events happened in three huge function rooms! I didn't really bother with most of it though. I just wanted to take photos. XD

Speaking of photos, there's a lot more of those under the cut! Do check them out. :)
(Some photos were taken by Ryan!^^)

Super sexy Bayonetta

There was a chibi Gundam assembly contest. Ryan wanted to join but it was too late. :(

Speaking of Gundams...

Blair took a photo with a big one on display!

Kaname and Reika, judging the cosplay performances

Kaname was crazy popular among the crowd.

The screams for this guy were deafening!

It was only during this con that I learned to appreciate cosplay performances. They are no joke!

How awesome is that costume?

Hilde and Nightmare from Soul Calibur! SQUEEE!

I love Hilde's armor, but it's got nothing on Nightmare's!

Hilde <3

We met Rice and Pao, fellow ManikaManila members. They own this pretty Dollfie Dream. :3

This was taken while having lunch. Hurray for natural light! :))

Nix brought the ever-gorgeous Diva that day. I love this girl

Diva and Blair say, "until next time!" :)

    Wow! That looks packed! Kinda regret not going but I don't think I could have handled the crowd anyhow. XD


    Sometimes these shots make me want to cosplay myself, but I don't have that much of an ego hahahaha!

    By the way, the "priestess" cosplayer if am not mistaken was from Touhou. I don't think it's an anime though. It's a video game ^_^


    Glad you guys had fun!


    PS: DANG BRUCE LEE

    The DFA person definitely wins the trophy for best Cosplay XD


    Also, (geek goggles on, souchaku!) the Iron Man - Captain America hybrid is probably either the Iron Patriot or one of Iron Man's alternate outfits in UMvC3. The one standing beside him is the Shogun Megazord from power rangers! (geek goggles off, baaahhh).


    Whew, haha. Well, glad to know you and Blair had fun XD
