Cosplay Mania 2011 is one of the most anticipated event of the year, especially to cosplayers and cosplay enthusiasts. The event is so big that it occupied 3 function rooms of SMX. Rm.3 was used for the entrance and waiting area. While rm.2 is where the booths are located and some of the activities as well. Lastly, rm.3 is the main area where the cosplayers gather and perform on stage.
Costume Building Contest
Famous International Cosplayers - Clive Lee, Jiaki Darkness, Yuki Godbless and Pinky Lu Xun
Gunpla Building Contest
Like in previous convetions, the Gunpla Building Contest is present in Cosplay Mania 2011. This time its the Gundam Red Frame Astray model.
Gundam and Toy Display
Of course the event wouldn't be completer without the main attraction, which is the cosplay. There were a lot of great cosplayers present on the event. That's why we had a lot of fun taking pictures of them. Too bad there were only few gundam cosplays.

Although it we were tired at the end of the day, we really enjoyed the event. We were able to see a lot of great cosplays and on top of that, we got the chance to see famous international cosplayers: Clive Lee, Jiaki Darkness, Yuki Godbless and Pinky Lu Xun. We also bought a lot of cool stuff like the vongola ring, customized anime tshirts, miku action figure, FF7 bag, etc.
The event itself is great since there were a lot of freebies and activities. We received free posters the moment we entered the function room and inside we got free snacks. Most of the activities were held on function room 1. There were a lot of performers on stage. But what we really liked the most is the costube presentation and the skit made by the international cosplayers.
Overall, Cosplay Mania 2011 was a success. The 150 pesos entrance fee was well worth it. We expect more activities and surprises on next year's event. If you like this post, then please check out also our past convention posts and look forward to our attendance on future otaku events.
