Main Stage Events of AsiaPop Comicon 2016

Aaaand finally, here comes the entry to conclude my APCC experience. Sorry for the delay because I got too busy with other things but allow me to post this anyway haha. For my final entry, i would like to highlight the main stage events where the celebrity guests will grace the stage either for a brief conversation with the host or fans or to perform. Much like any conventions you may not have the opportunity to see all the guests in one day as they all have different schedules and days of appearances. If you are lucky enough, you might have a chance to spot them signing autographs on their respective booths.20160828_144921tYou are lucky if you spotted artists too. I was really grateful to see Glaiza De Castro at the event. She was on a hurry though yet I managed to take this shot after she got ambushed by reporters. Go Pirena!

Joe Dempsie
I spotted Joe Dempsie near the Center stage for photo opps and Autograph signing session with his fans. Joe Dempsie was best known for his role as Chris Miles for the tv series “Skins” along side with Nicholas Hault who is apparently one of the celebrity guests of the event. Joe Dempsie was recently scene in the hit series Game Of Thrones as Gendry and also with a one off drama “The Gamechangers” alongside with Daniel RadcliffeIMG_1012t

Cosplay Panel Session
IMG_1072tSince I failed to make it through the Hall M- Marvel Showcase, i had to spend two more hours exploring the booths on the ground floor while waiting for the main stage to open. Unfortunately, i enjoyed navigating the event and so I missed the comic panel session with Jason Palmer, Whilce Portacio, Ken Lashley, Billy Tan and Mike Zeck. Good thing I made it on time for theor Cosplay Panel session which features some of my favorite cosplayers.IMG_1075tThe Cosplay panel is composed of highly profiled Cosplayers including Riki Lecotey “Riddle”, Ani Mia, Myrtle Sarrosa and Yugana Senshi Uron. They entertained questions from their beloved fans. I personally enjoyed Yugana’s presence in the said session and how she add humor in all her answers.

Beauty Panel Session
IMG_1090tOkay, i wasn’t able to relate myself much with the beauty session panel but it’s very interesting to know more about these gorgeous ladies and their own beauty tips and secrets which are truly beneficial for ladies. The Beauty panel session includes beauty bloggers/ vloggers Say Tioco and the stylish sisters Vern and Verniece Enciso.

Nicholas Hoult
IMG_1119tFans were in rage after his name was announced and they went insane as soon as this guy graced the stage! Yes, it’s Nicholas Hoult who was recently scene portraying the role of the Beast in X-Men Apocalypse. Hoult was known for many film and tv roles including Tony Stonem in Skins, his highly acclaimed performance as “Nux” in Mad Max : Fury Road and “R” in Warm Bodies. IMG_1126tIMG_1159t

Fans went insane after this brief message from Hoult. Watch this video below

Cosplay Authority Global Challenge (The CAGE) Kid’s Category FinalsIMG_1182tSeeing Cosplayers wearing this colorful costumes adorned with amazing details is truly awesome but seeing kids doing it and giving justice to their character is even more amazing. IMG_1187t

Hiroshi KitadaniIMG_1198tThe guy who made my day!  I am a big fan of One Piece and Hiroshi is the voice behind one of the anime’s most iconic songs. His debut Single “We Are” was used as the first opening theme song for One Piece and it was a huge hit! Kitadani didn’t just offered one song but five of his big hits including songs from JAM project.

    It surely look like a fun event, but most people here are so foreign to me! I guess the only person I can claim to know is Nicholas Hoult, and it’s only because of X-Men. I didn’t watch his other projects, either. Heh! But the cosplayer panels sure look great! I love the outfit of Ani Mia!

  2. Ive never seen actual cosplayers. Lucky you! There seems to be a lot of celebrities foreign and Filipino who graced the event. The Star Wars performance looks very interesting and intertaining.. Surely my son would love watching it if he’s around 🙂

    I have never, in my life, experienced a comicon before! I’m sure fans went gaga over this. I have a friend who made sure to attend this event and she was so happy! 🙂 If I were here, I think I’d be clueless, lol. I don’t watch that much anime/tv shows, etc.

  4. Jessica says:

    I love the cosplay panel session. Looks like a fun and full of lively vibe on this event. Hoping to attend one next time and get the first hand feeling of seeing these artists. Bringing friends who are really on this field would be the perfect guide. hehe

  5. Ann Balisbis says:

    I’m not a fan of comicon, and it never comes to my mind to attend to this because all I know is that this is all about COSPLAY. I’m not against cosplay but it’s not my thing so I don’t think I would go to such event. But thank goodness I read this blog as I was enlightened of the other things that happen in the event that would interest me a lot like….. beauty. hihi I know Say Tioco and Enciso sisters because I follow them in their social media. 🙂

  6. Rej says:

    I really wanted to attend the APCC because of Nicholas Hoult and Millie Bobby Brown. But I figured out a lot of people of going to be there so I just gave up on the idea entirely! LOL. This seems like a fun event though. I’m not much into Cosplay though.

  7. The event looked really packed with fans and artists from all around the world. It’s already crazy hearing those fans screaming just seeing their idols. Aside from the interviews on stage and ambush interviews, are they selling stuff there as well? How long does the comicon last?

  8. Tamshuk says:

    Being someone who has never been to comicon before, I really enjoyed reading this post. Going through the entire sequence of events from the professional cosplayers to Nick Hoult, it was really interesting for me. Hopefully someday I will get to go to one myself

  9. Dunja says:

    Looks like a great event! Honestly, i haven’t heard of almost anyone, but nevertheless it looks super fun. I think i would love The Beauty panel! You can never learn too much about beauty haha

  10. Kimberly C. says:

    This sounds and looks like it was a lot of fun. I would’ve loved to be in the audience during the beauty panel. Your photos make me feel like I was there too 😉 Thank you.

  11. Sounds like you had a great time and got to see some amazing stars!

  12. Ana says:

    Glad to know that you got a chance to visit this fun event and meet few celebrities!

  13. Ack, I can’t relate! 🙁 I’ve never experienced comicon before and I am no fan of anime. Although, back in HS, we used to go crazy over sailormoon haha. We had trading cards and comics of it. Oh, those were the days.

    Looks fantastic! I’m not familiar with Asian pop at all but already those characters look so fascinating.
