There needs to be more cosplayers like this.
"That’s the worst Batman cosplay I’ve seen in my life!"
"BATman? Well that explains it"
"Why he looks like he dressed in the dark!"
His name is Liui Aquino, a filipino cosplayer. And I think, by far, he’s the greatest Hiccup cosplayer I’ve seen.
That little girl is all of us.
We are her
She is us.
We are one.
Thanks Liui Aquino! Rockin’ the Filipino cosplay scene!
That awkward moment when Diablo shows up to your religious protest
This reminds me of an old story I heard from a friend. One year, an anime con was being held the same weekend as a Bible Conference. This dude in an Ifrit costume, stilts and all, gets into the elevator, all hunched over, on his way down to the lobby. Before he could reach the lobby, the elevator stopped on another floor. Two old ladies clutching bibles were about to step on when they see this giant red demon-creature.
And in his deepest voice he says, “Going down?”
They shrieked and ran off to find another elevator.
oh boy I have a story to contribute. On Saturday I was on my way to London Film and Comic Con as Abaddon from SPN. I’d upgraded the prosthetics (a decapitation wound that was actually sewn up with a suturing needle) and covered myself in fake blood before realising I was going to have to travel through London like this. I didn’t want to freak any nice people out so wore a scarf hijab-style to cover it all up.
Cut to me being singled out by an evangelical Christian outside the tube station (I think because of my punk clothes?) who tried to give me a homophobic pamphlet and shouted “you’re going to hell the way you’re living.”
Without skipping a beat I lifted up the scarf and replied “Darling. Been there, done that. They made me Queen”
He jumped back in horror, I strolled on. The only thing that could have made it better would have been an M.I.A. soundtrack.
I honestly don’t know How I stayed on that wobbling pedestal
In the lobby of the CTcon hotel on Saturday, there was a family with two cute little twin girls walking around and talking to all of the cosplayers. I was talking to my friends (hiwamu and haihane) when they were approached by the parents and these timid kids.
The parents asked: “What are you two from?”
Virus: “Uh… We’re from a video game.”
Parents: “Is it G-Rated?”
Understatement of the century.
This kid knows what’s up.
Pretty much our actual reactions to the club recruitment scene

Me and my pops! One of the reasons why I love the Mankanshoku’s so much is because they’re like an over-the-top version of my own family, haha.
