The 3rd Cebu Comic Con was held last August 17, 2013 at the gymnasium of Sacred Heart School, Canduman, Mandaue. Several of my workmates and I attended the event and of course we had lots of fun (despite the rain) because so many awesome cosplayers came and we were free to fangirl to our hearts’ content!
As mentioned, it was a rainy day but that didn’t matter because so many heroes descended at the venue and graced our presence. Here were the highlights for me:
1. Iron Man (Damaged State)
This cosplayer definitely earned my respect because his suit looks so realistic and became even more awesome with its damaged state. It wasn’t hard to imagine at all that Tony Stark has just arrived from a fierce battle to party with us normal mortals.
We have here another very realistic looking suit and props to the cosplayer who endured wearing this heavy looking costume for the whole day.
This Hawkgirl had some trouble with her wings at first because it was too heavy for her light form, but she got the hang of it and proceeded to stroll around like the badass that she is.
4. Black Iron Man
Really loved the added touch of LED lights to this suit. Kudos to whoever put some serious love into making this costume.
5. Kick Ass & Hit Girl
Wow, they really came in a pair. This awesome duo even performed some “action moves” to satisfy the request of several photographers. I think they nailed their costumes.
Of course, there were plenty of cosplayers too who came in as their favorite villains in the comics world. Here are the highlights for me:
Tom Hiddleston cannot be beat as Loki because he is one fine man! (Or so one of my friends would say.) This cosplayer does a great job with his costume and overall look though and many girls and even guys in the venue still went gaga over him.
2. The Sith Lords
These guys were tall! And because of that, their Sith Lords were so imposing as they strolled around the venue. These cosplayers towered over everyone else there and the flow and flapping of their cloaks commandeered respect!
I find this guy’s makeup spot on and he really had his character down since he behaved furtively, maniacally and evilly all throughout the event…
Of course there were many more great cosplayers who attended the Cebu comic convention.
I believe the 2013 Cebu Comicon was a success and I’m certainly looking forward to how it would be this 2014.
