As part of their Simply Irresistible Sale, SM City Cebu held a Cosplay event last July 29. Cosplay is short for costume play where participants dress up like their favorite manga, anime, or movie character. The participants of the SM event were mostly teenagers and they sure love to dress up in their favorite characters. You an see people dressing up as Pikachu, Lolita, and their favorite Naruto and Star Wars characters.
The special guest for the event was Alodia Gosiengfiao who is dubbed as the "Cosplay Queen" of the Philippines. Alodia is a fan favorite and she got a lot of love from the Cebuanos. She was energetic even if she just arrived from a Cosplay event in Indonesia. She was also game taking questions from the participants and crowd. The spectators had a wonderful time and it would have been a bigger event if it were held on a Saturday because many would-be Cosplayers were still in school.
All in all, it was a successful event and I know many people are hoping that SM will do more events like this. Maybe in the next event you can see me dress up. Who knows? ;)
Here some of the pics that I took from the event:
