To conclude my CosplayMania 2016 Experience, allow me to share some of the interesting booths, activities and items that I spotted during the second day event. You know at, one thing I realized when attending conventions is that you must arm yourself with extra money because you can never tell what kind of interesting items or deals you can encounter during the event. Unfortunately, in my case, i failed to bring enough funds .. so i missed some of the great discounted items… but I took pictures of them anyway haha.
Force of the Will Booth
Nope, it’s note the Gaming Library this time. Asiapop and Toycon both featured Gaming Library and their board and table top games. This time, it is a booth specializing in one particular game, the Force of the Will. Force of the Will is a Trading Card game where each player is provided with their own deck and each is endowed with 4000 Life points. If you managed to inflict damage to your opponent and if they lost all their lives, then you win the game. The mechanics are very similar to those typical trading card games but it seems like it follows an interesting plot and it also features an app where you can enter the game’s ranking system and get invitations to their event. I just love how interactive this trading card game is.
Those Cute Items From LongLivePlayPH
One of the booths that really took my attention is the one from LongLive Play Ph as they showcase some interesting items that will truly bring out the inner geek from you. The first item that grabbed my attention is their cute Pokemon badges!Now that Pokemon Go is hitting the mainstream, these Badges are truly worth collecting especially to those who grew up loving the first generation of Pokemon!These 8BitDo Bluetooth game controllers are very eye catching as well! These game controllers that perfectly work with game emulators and are compatible with mobile too. They are very nostalgic right?Harry Potter wand-inspired pencils also from LLPPHow about Link’s shield?
Pre-loved Collectible Items
Gosh I wonder how much these items are? The rarest the item is, the higher the value it gets.Not sure about this one but it seems like a Power Ranger Morpher or something!Stuffed toys and plushies from Motsu booth
I guess the Cosplay Convention will not be completed without the Bandai booth right? One Piece Action figures
Notice Me Senpai Booth
I learned that Notice Me Senpai is a new mobile game app where you play as the first female student in an elite all-boys private school. You take on a job at the Third Year Building Cafe to help pay for your tuition. You attract new customers with new cafe decoration combinations. As you manage the cafe, you meet all sorts of upperclassmen. From nerds, to jocks, to famous pop idols, this school has them all.The booth features bookmarks and pins featuring the 30 collectible Senpai based on their mobile game.
Who would like to wear these colorful socks inspired from some of your favorite characters!How about this Saitama Bonnet?
Little Akiba Booth
One of the most interesting booths in Cosmania is the Little Akiba Booth. The booth features Mr Kenjiro Kakimoto or Realmaid Ninja manga series. Mr Kakimoto offers a 3minute long instant portrait sketch session. Each participant will only have to pay Php50 for the drawing session and it comes up with free photo opp as well. Tadah! Me and Mr Kakimoto! Here’s my portrait sketch drawn my Mr Kenjiro Kakimoto
I am going to have a separate post about this new game craze but one thing I can tell you, this one is way way better than Pokemon Go
NHK World Booth
In case you were looking for freebies, you can grab one through NHK World Booth. You just have to answer their surveys and holah! You are now entitled to claim a prize from them!I got a cute Domokun pin!
Now who would have thought that SilverWorks will come up something so classy yet so geeky? These are not official yet bet they are indeed planning to release these Pokemon-inspired jewelries soon!In case you are not a Pokemon fan, then you might enjoy their Justice League inspired watches!
That Booth With Origamis
Sorry, I failed to get the name of this booth because when I saw it, no one is there to be asked so I grabbed some photos instead.
