Yesterday I went to the event (hosted by UPLB SOMASOSHIKI) named Insomania 3: The Southern Combo. I joined the cosplay competition again(I once joined the second Insomania) and the character I imitated was Kurosaki Ichigo of the anime Bleach. There were a lot of cosplayers at the event; one of them is my friend Andrew. He’s portraying Shuhei Hisagi, another character from Bleach. At first I thought I won’t be able to attend the event because I haven’t finished weaving the waraji(the footwear worn by the Shinigamis). Good thing I have a plan B and resorted to improvising my own waraji by using rubber slippers glued with natural fiber rope. I was way beyond the traveling time! And I’m still working on the improvised sandals! Thank goodness mom and my uncle were willing to accompany me there that is why they traveled from Pasig to our house. I’m sorry BOBOS if I wasn’t able to invite you. I was in panic mode at that time. I asked Andrew to register me for the cosplay competition because the registration is about to close and I’m not there yet. Thank you Andrew!
There weren’t much booths there unlike last time. I must admit their program was dull(ang dry dry). But of course it didn’t bother me because I wasn’t listening nor watching who’s on stage, I was there for the cosplay. Speaking of the cosplay, the waiting was longer than the catwalk.
But it was okay, I met a new friend when waiting in line. Her name is Tin.
I don’t know the character she’s playing though. She said it’s her first time having a go walking on a real catwalk and she’s quite nervous. I said just do what you character does, but she’s missing her butler! After her I was up on stage. I swung my Tensa a bit and performed the hollowification(where i put my mask). I turned my back and grabbed the mask under the robe and put it on and shouted like a hollow. Rawr! Unfortunately, my mother(who was also with me at the Inso), accidentally put the digicam on video mode. aw! so there was no photo of me on the catwalk this time.
Did I mention I saw the Lenne there?
Man! My hair became goldish orange! It’s supposed to be bright orange! Stupid color wax!
Of course after the catwalk comes the picture-picture mode! I got a chance to snap a pic with one of the judges.
I also learned that I wasn’t the only Ichigo there!
More pics with Tin.
And the winners are…..
And last but not the least……..
Although I’m disappointed because I did not win, I did have fun! All of these are impossible if it were not for my relatives. I thank Kuya Alvin for helping me with the sword, my lola for my wardrobe, my uncle and mom for the transpo. See ya next year!
