The truth is, I have been into different kinds of relationships that is the same with having a boyfriend, however, with … Continue reading Why I Regret Pushing Away The One Who Loves Me
It’s been a long time since I opened this blog and posted an entry. I guess I’ve been busy the past months that I barely paid attention to this. But I don’t think that is the reason. If I really wanted to, I could have … Continue reading Why I’m (not) Deleting This Blog
I never thought that I would travel in Baler, Aurora. I am not even familiar with the place. My only knowledge about it is limited to the movie Baler starring Jericho Rosales and Anne Curtis which is, by the way, a really good movie. Anyway, … Continue reading How We Had Fun in Baler, Aurora
It’s the 14th Philippine ToyCon this year and I am just so happy to be a part of it, again. Hooray!
I was there the whole second day and I felt the intense euphoria oozing all over the place as excited hobbyist, enthusiasts and fans roam around SM Megatrade Hall 1, 2, 3 and 4 to search for cool toys, manga, and other rare items to add to their collections.
It was really amazing! Everyone got the chance to take cool photos of action figures and other rare toys and items. There were tiny toys, life size action figures and even insanely huge characters. Marvels, DCs, Animes, movie characters, local super heroes, name it and the ToyCon has it!
There were also cosplayer contestants that were roaming around who were really very kind to welcome ambush photo opts. My phone memory bled with all the photos I took. I shared some of them below.
The event really had everyone’s inner kid inside comes out! Up until now, I can still feel that amazing happiness of just being surrounded by toys and fellow fans.
I don’t know what happened on the other days of the event. But I did enjoy the programs on the second day. There was a Star Wars presentation. I am not really a fan of the franchise, and my knowledge about it, is that I know Darth Vader is the father of Luke and that R2D2 is a cute robot. But I enjoyed the Star Wars play and the cosplayers playing are really good and in character.
Aside featuring the upcoming release of Star Wars VII The Force Awakens, the event also highlighted other upcoming movies like Ant Man, Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice, Attack on Titan Live Action, Doraemon Stand By Me, and Minions the movie among others.
The Philippine Queen of Cosplay Alodia Gosiengfiao is also there as Go Go Tomago of Big Hero 6. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to take a close look because of too many fans gathering around her. Nonetheless, I think it is still cool to know that Alodia was there.
I am not a pure geek or nerd, I’m just a simple citizen who appreciates the beauty in every action figure but as a simple fan, but being in this kind of place is happiness, just ignore all the hassle you’ll experience in that crowded place.
The 14th Philippine Toycon happened last June 19-20-21, 2015 at the 5/F, Building B, SM Megamall.
Count down for the next Philippine Toycon starts now!
Sharing you some of the photos I took on the second day of the event:
I’ll be posting more photos on my instagram account!
To the cute boy beside me You probably know me as the grumpy girl with unruly hair sitting beside you. I know I’m a little scary and smiling is not really my thing.
