Warning: another long and picture heavy post ahead 😄
I’ve finally finished sorting the photos from Toycon 2011. Ckloy and I took about 700 shots that day, and it took forever for me to go through all of them and pick out the ones I liked.
Anyway, about 2 weeks ago, I attended the 10th Philippine Toycon with Ezra, Ckloy and 4 cousins – 3 of which have never attended a cosplay event before, so they were pretty excited. It was held at Megamall, as usual, at the Megatrade Halls. My cousins arrived at our house early that morning so we could all go to Megamall together.
Quick shot of Ezra and me with our cousins (Deus, Gilbert and Viel) before leaving the house. Ezra wore my mom’s white wig which she used for her Lady Gaga performance during last year’s Faculty Follies.
Vanity shot in the car. I cosplayed as Ezra again, LOL. Everything I’m wearing (except for the boots and the bag) are hers.

The five of us arrived at Megamall around eleven. Normally there would be a long line for tickets around this time, but I guess most people have already gotten theirs because there was no queue when we got there. Even more surprising was the fact that it wasn’t that crowded inside the convention. We figured that it must be because most people attend the Toycon on the first day (we went on the 2nd day). Little did we know that it was going to get EXTREMELY crowded later that afternoon. We went around the booths once then decided to grab some lunch first since there really wasn’t that much going on yet.
Of course we had lunch at Bubble Tea. It’s become a Toycon tradition that we eat lunch at Bubble tea and dinner at Teriyaki Boy.
Raffy met up with us while we were having lunch. It turned out that he’s been inside the convention since that morning, exploring the booths with his friends. When we called to tell him that we were there as well, he decided to join us for lunch. Ckloy arrived a short while later.
Ezra patiently waiting for her order
Deus was hungry and couldn’t wait for our food to arrive. Just kidding. I wanted to get a picture of him smiling, but every time I’d point the camera at him, he would frown. It’s funny because in person he’s really all smiles.
Of course, he couldn’t hold the frown for long and I eventually managed to get this picture 😄
They talked about their favorite anime shows over lunch. I mostly listened since I don’t really watch that much anime these days so I didn’t have that much to say.

After lunch, we headed back up to the convention and went around the booths again. We mainly just looked at the different stuff they had for sale. I bought some earrings and a necklace at one of the booths.
