TOYCON 2013 Cosplayers

I’m very sorry it took a while before I could post these other pictures of the TOYCON 2013 Cosplayers. Well, better late than never.

I love attending cosplay competitions because there are a lot of cute guys who are into cosplay.

440th Araw ng Pasig Celebration

July 2 is Araw ng Pasig and this year is the 440th celebration of this historic event. I went to the website of the Pasig City Government and I was very disappointed that there is no information about this upcoming event on their website.

Pasig City Seal

In fact, the website of the Pasig City Government http://pasigcity.gov.ph/, particularly the Upcoming Events section, is not update. The last celebration that is listed there is the Bambino Festival which happened in January 2013. So I checked the other Social Media channels of the Pasig City Government.

no other events listed

The Facebook link on the website redirects to the Facebook page of Ex-Mayor Bobby Eusebio. It doesn’t give any information about the upcoming 440th Araw ng Pasig Celebration. It only highlights the accomplishments of the Pasig City Government.

The Twitter page of the Pasig City Government is a lot worse. It redirects to the Twitter account of Ex-Mayor Bobby Eusebio and it was last updated in 2010. It’s obvious that they set-up the Twitter account so that it would appear great on the Pasig City website, although it’s not updated.

pasig city twitter-horz

If I were the current Mayor of Pasig City, I would allot enough budgets to Public Information, particularly through websites, blogs, Facebook and Twitter page. It’s already the digital age and a lot of people are online. Citizens of Pasig like me, would love to know information about upcoming events in Pasig City, on the Internet, online.

Surprisingly, the Pasig City Government has an agency called the Public Information Office (PIO). It has a Facebook page but it’s like the local version of PAG-ASA (the weather bureau). I just hope that public information would included other things aside from weather updates.

I’m just hoping that the Pasig City Government would celebrate the 440th Araw ng Pasig this year better than last year.

Highlights of TOYCON 2013

So I was at TOYCON 2013 yesterday afternoon at the SM Megatrade Hall. It was full of people, cosplayers included. Two famous cosplayers were present in the event -- Alodia and Jinri Park. They spent most of their time signing posters and posing for the camera.

Cosplayers from the online game Dragon Nest.

I was a bit hesitant to go to TOYCON 2013 thinking that it would probably be the same as last year. I went to the event anyway. It was as I was expecting it to be -- almost the same as last year.

Most of the action figures that were displayed are almost the same exact toys that were displayed last year. A lot of the cosplayers are the same cosplayers that were there last year -- specially the Justice League and the Avengers.

The highlight of the day was the cosplay competition called Hero Face Off. I was expecting a performance by a band or something so I stayed until 7PM. No other performances were present. Not to mention that the entrance fee increased from P100 to P120.

There were few new exhibitors that I noticed and the booth that I really loved seeing is the One Sixth Republic. Their action figures are of high quality. I also loved the free soda provided by Coca Cola and the free ID lace and pin buttons given by Mozilla Philippines (Firefox).

Some of the most common merchandized during TOYCON 2013 are mugs, action figures (One Piece, Naruto, Marvel and DC), toy cars, robots, headgears, cards, dog tags, and t-shirts . There were also home embroidery machines from Brother Philippines and booths from Komikon and schools that offer courses for animation.

Some of the cosplayers that were new to me are: Red Mask (Maskman), the boy scout from the movie Up, and Mr. Pogi (from Dragon Ball Z). I also saw the new PSP games (the latest) Marvel vs Capcom as well as Injustice (DC characters). The online game Dragon Nest was also present during the event giving free installer CDs and posters. There's also a booth dedicated to the promotion of the latest Superman movie, "Man of Steel".

Overall, I still enjoyed attending TOYCON 2013 and here are some of the pictures I took.
