Cebu Business Park turns into a Cosplay District

Costume + Play = COSPLAY

There is no doubt that cosplay is now a hobby to Cebuanos, and an addiction to the Otakus. I have attended different cosplay competitions and even organized one cosplay competition and I can see the smile it gives from the cosplayers down to the spectators.

This year, the cosplay fever will convert one of the important business districts in Cebu into a Harajuku District, a place in Japan were young people dress up in variety of styles like gothic, decora, and even cosplay. It's like bringing Japan to the Philippines.

With the partnership of Ayala Center Cebu and Cebu Holdings, Inc., and in cooperation with, a cosplay event is lined up in celebration of the 10th year anniversary of Cebu Educational Development for Information Technology (CEDf-IT), dubbed as CEDf-IT Cosplay HD. It will be on October 29, 2011 from 5PM- 12 MN.

Anime otakus, hobbyists, and spectators can watch their favorite anime characters in action at the Linear Park of Cebu Business Park, just between Cebu Holdings Center across Marriot Hotel and City Sports Club near the Lexmark Building.

Not only that, ABS-CBN Star Magic's Enrique Gil himself will join the party to witness the cosplayers do their thing.

Start preparing your costumes or emptying the memory cards of your cameras now and see you this coming Saturday for a very big cosplay event!
