I apologize for the downtime as my hosting provider couldn’t keep up with the server load. T__T
The site might experience some technical difficulties as we’re upgrading to another server to keep up with the demand.
Anyway, back to regular programming. ^^;
I think this is the first time I’ve seen a booth hire a professional model to promote their products for this type of convention.
You usually see pro models like her during car shows but very rarely for anime/ comics/ toy conventions.
So “YAY!” for progress and doing something unique! 😉
For some unknown reason (to me, that is), Manila Comic-Con now became Metro Comic Con. @_@
Like most conventions of this nature, Metro Comic Con had the usual assortment of booths selling toys, figures, cosplay paraphernalia, anime stuff, etc. They also had sponsors setting up their own booths, like the one for the G.I. Joe movie.
And of course, no convention is complete without cosplayers. ^^
Interesting to see that the AFP (Associated Foreign Press and NOT Armed Forces of the Philippines!) is now taking notice of cosplay by posting a vid of the recently concluded ChinaJoy Cosplay Championship in China.
You can view the vid here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJmT6timAGc
Too bad that embedding of the vid is disabled, though. 🙁
Teams of teenagers and men and women in their early 20s dress up as Asian popular culture manga characters and act out fantasy role playing games at China’s annual Cosplay championship
You can see pics of the babes at ChinaJoy on this Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/shaoj/
Just a short warning before clicking that link: the babes are drool-worthy! LOLz 🙂
