A step up for Cosplay Mania.
MANILA -- In light of its successes in recent years, the Philippines' premiere cosplay (costume play) convention "Cosplay Mania" is taking another step forward to reach 'world class' status with "Cosplay Mania Evolution"!
Slated for October 4 and 5 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, "Cosplay Mania Evolution" promises to deliver even more thrills for fans of cosplay, anisong, anime, manga, and gaming in the Philippines and the rest of South East Asia.
"Cosplay Mania Evolution" has revitalized the Cosplay Tournament of Champions (TorCh), mixing in a new flavor that will certainly bring more depth and life to the competition! The TorCh Mentor system has been implemented, where each team will be assigned mentors to help them win the honor of representing the country in the "Anime Festival Asia Regional Cosplay Championships", to be held in Singapore in December 2014.
The event also features "meetandgreets" with worldclass cosplayers such as the alltime favorite KANAMEAC/Eoea[euro] and Reika, along with international cosplayers Orochi X, Pinky, Vic and Jesuke. "Cosplay Mania Evolution" has even increased its stellar roster to include Japanese authority on cosplay Tatsumi Inui, and American cosplay superstar Vampy Bit Me.
The convention will once again feature its signature events the Cosplay Solo Showdown where cosplayers get to strut their stuff on the catwalk; and the Cosplay Team Battle where friends can band together and show the world that they are the team to beat.
To end the event with a bang, "Cosplay Mania Evolution" will feature the first ever JAM: "Japanese Anime Music" Concert in the Philippines, headlined by Aya Ikeda the voice behind the theme songs of popular animes such as Heartcatch Precure!, Kindaichi Case Files and the online games "Finding Neverland Online" and "Harezora Monogatari", and Loverin Tamburin the band behind the opening theme for the anime Disgaea and the ending theme for Natsuhiro Drops.
