The First Visayas Cosplay Summit!

On March 5- Bacolod hosted the very first ever Visayas Cosplay Summit!  To legions of anime fans and cosplayers in the Visayas – this was the chance that they were waiting for – to show off their costumes and to cosplay as their favorite character!

The event was held in SM Bacolod’s atrium area on March 5 – a Saturday.  SM shoppers were in for a treat as they were able to enjoy a parade of costumed characters, popular anime music from the band Yuya and a pageant event where costumes were judged!

The area was packed full of excited people – Yes, all the balconies and the railings were full of happy shoppers!

The event was organized with the help of Yuya and Ambox events.  They invited guests and cosplayers from all over the Visayas to come and participate in the event.  Their efforts truly paid off!

Several events were organized to ensure everyone had a great time.

Amazing drawings by students who participated in the event!

As the event was underway, cosplayers paraded around the mall and participated in photo taking opportunities. Here’s a look at some of the awesome cosplayers and their costumes.
