At Penny Arcade Expo 2011, I represented War Inc. Battle Zone. It was awesome since I got to have an exhibitor badge and see everything before everyone else saw it. Click here to continue reading “Penny Arcade Expo 2011″…June 2nd, 2012
I finally got a chance to do a winter photo shoot last January. We finally got a good downpour of snow, and to tell you the truth, it was so much snow that the government declared state of emergency for days. Regardless of what happened, it was really beautiful, and we really enjoyed doing this set. I was wearing a total of four layers of kimono, and water boots, but it was still cold. Thank you to my dear friend Archimedes Belardo for providing me this set and the parasol. Click here to continue reading “Winter Kimono Photo Shoot”…May 5th, 2012
It was fall, and I hope we were able to catch the beauty of this season in the stills. We went to Cochrane Memorial Park in the city of Yelm, with the ducks still in the midst of migrating. We were hoping to catch some of them on camera. I found it very surreal to see the very colorful assortment of leaves as they fell on the ground while we went about our work. You could see pathways lined with the leaves, like delightful Persian carpets.
For this kimono photo shoot, it took me a lot more time to do my hair and put on my kimono than it did to actually take the photos. LOL. The kimono set and the fan were provided by Mr. Archimedes Gavina Belardo, shipped from the Philippines to my house here in the United States. Considering the long journey this set made — it actually started its journey all the way from Japan — I thought it would only be fitting if I tried my best to give it a good photo shoot. With the colors of this one, I thought it would be nice to use for the season of fall. It was my very first fall in my two years of residence in this country, because I usually spend this time of year in the Philippines. Without further ado, here is my fall kimono photoset. Hope you guys like it.^_^ Click here to continue reading “Fall Kimono Photo Shoot”…January 31st, 2012
The Sakura-Con 2011 experience actually started the day before the event. I was invited to model for talented Japanese designer Sebastian Masuda‘s 6%DOKIDOKI Harajuku fashion line, together with their spokeswomen Vani and Yuka, for a television appearance on New Day Northwest. Harajuku fashion is a very popular style in Japan, and is basically integrated in everyday clothing. Mr. Masuda’s line is designed to rebel against a dull and colorless world through his very colorful designs. It was really nice to model such kawaii clothes and accessories, that are literally a color explosion!XD
Everything on myself was from their shop, with the exception of the makeup, wig and shoes.^_~ I woke up early that day, drove to Seattle, and meet them at the KING 5 studio for the early morning taping. There I dressed up and went through backstage briefing/rehearsal. For a brief moment I met Jodie Foster, who was at that time promoting her movie The Beaver on the show. Regrettably, I wasn’t able to take a picture with her, since we were next on queue to get on stage. T-T Backstage, everyone on the 6%DOKIDOKI team was as colorful and friendly as can be. They were saying kawaii all the time, especially while they were styling me from head to toe. *^_^* I felt like a super pampered princess! Needless to say, I was very delighted to have met and worked with them. Click here to continue reading “Sakura-Con 2011″…November 23rd, 2011
This year I went back to the Philippines, coincidentally I was also chosen to be the Philippine cosplay representative for the HKTB-Animax Hong Kong Halloween Treats Party as per my previous posts.^_^ Before I left for Hong Kong I had a good time with Hannah Villasis and Vince Golanco for a Halloween cosplay special on Tek Tok TV.
Tek Tok tech engineer Peter Baltazar, Filipino otaku/tech celebrity Mike Abundo, Tek Tok hosts Hannah Villasis and Vince Golangco, and magician/mentalist Marcelle Fabie. Click here to continue reading “Philippines Visit 2010″…October 5th, 2011
