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 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.
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.
Even the judges were in costume!

Our personal favorites were these two cosplayers. Their costumes were PERFECT.
Thanks to Yuya, Ambox and all the amazing staff and volunteers who made the first Visayas Cosplay Summit a Huge success!
