My CosplayMania 2016 Experience : Interesting Items And Booths

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
IMG_0003tNope, 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. IMG_0007tForce 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. IMG_0009tThe 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

The first item that grabbed my attention is their cute Pokemon badges!IMG_0020tNow 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!IMG_0026tThese 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.

As you manage the cafe, you meet all sorts of upperclassmen. From nerds, to jocks, to famous pop idols, this school has them all.IMG_0079tThe booth features bookmarks and pins featuring the 30 collectible Senpai based on their mobile game.
