WHERE: 888 Chinatown Square
WHEN: Saturday, February 5 · 3:30pm - 6:30pm
As we welcome the Year 2011, 888 Chinatown Square presents one of the most popular gatherings for the youth today. We give you, KOSUPUREDETO – a fun-filled Cosplay Event to celebrate not just the Chinese New Year but also Valentine’s Day. If you are unfamiliar of the term COSPLAY, please be informed:
Cosplay is short for Costume Play. It is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represe...nt a specific character or idea. Cosplay was started by TINTA productions last 2007 with the cause to support BantayBata 163 in an Annual Masskara Walk wherein people donate any amount of money to take pictures with the cosplayers.
Starting with the success of ANBUFEST (the very first Cosplay Convention in Negros Occidental) last February 2010 and ANIMOTION 2010 (the official Masskara Cosplay Event) last October 2010, the cosplay community has proven its merit in gathering large crowds and honing young, talented craftsmen. Because of this, we have prepared another event that will not only interest the youth, but also encourage them artistically.
In this event, we will be showcasing the different animated characters from Marvel Heroes, Movie Characters, Cartoons, Gaming Characters and Japanese Anime. But there is a twist; each must have their partners with them. All the games in this event require a partner to celebrate the Month of Hearts. THIS EVENT ALSO ACCEPTS SINGLE COSPLAYERS BUT BE AWARE THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE GAMES ARE MADE IN GROUPS OF TWO'S (2). YOU CAN LOOK FOR YOUR PARTNER WITHIN THE CROWD OF COSPLAYERS IF YOU WANT. ^_^
The contestants will be given their 30-seconds Walk of Fame and will be properly judged by the jurors. There are several games including AI DURAMA, Best in Chinese Costume, Best Cosplayer, DETO (date) Games and many more that will surely interest kids and adults alike. This event will be on February 5, 2011 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the 888 Event Center, 888 Chinatown Square Bacolod.
Please be updated. THIS INFORMATION IS BOUND TO CHANGE WITHIN THE COMING WEEKS. Spread the word! DOMO, MINNA!!!!
