Eton Cyberpod hosts ultimate Cosplay championship
The Ultimate Championship is the last leg of the four-week cosplay convention, Cosplay Genre Wars. Each weekend, cosplayers showed up in different costumes to match the given theme: Anime Mayhem, Comic Book Battle, Video Game Face-off, and Motion Picture Showdown. For the Ultimate Championship, the three winners of each event go head-to-head for the three top prizes of P5,000, P10,000, and P15,000.
Dan “Spider-Dan” Geronomo, a cosplayer aficionado, opened the show as Michael Jackson. He showed his moves on the stage as fans cheered and waited for the auction event where a lucky winner gets to go on a date with Spider-Dan. Girl group Cloud 9 also joined the entertainment and engaged the crowd in their trademark Korean pop song-and-dance number.
Cosplay fans were also treated to a cosplay parade where they got to see their favorite manga, anime, video game, and movie characters come to life on the catwalk. After the auction and the raffle, the afternoon closed with the announcement of the three ultimate winners: Marx Fulloda as Batman Killgear from The Batman in third place; Abraham Cruz as Master Gundam for Gundam G. in second place; and Guy Singzon Spawn Mandarin from Spawn Dark Ages the ultimate champion.
All of this was held at E-Life, which features a wide range of electronics and gadgets stores. Located across Robinsons Galleria along Ortigas Avenue, E-Life opened last March to become the latest electronics haven this side of Ortigas.
