PhotoBlog on Mega Masquerade, a Philippine Halloween Convention.
edit: I posted this in egl but I believe it would be alright to share this here too.
I don't remember seeing any entries about conventions here in the Philippines so I thought maybe I should start. However, as I have gotten used to attending conventions without
a camera, the photos you would be seeing here are our photos taken by others. I guess this would serve as a sort of yes-we-do-have-cons-here-in-the-Philippi
nes entry. XD This particular con we attended was called Mega Masquerade. It was a Halloween convention but there were anime cosplayers too. Still, most attendees wore their lovely dresses and charming coats. I saw this as the perfect chance to wear an EGA/EGA-inspired outfit, since I was pretty sure there would be a lot of girls who would be wearing their Lolita dresses. I attended with my Sweetheart, the dashing dandy Louise
and my lovely friend Meg
. As expected, everybody thought we were cosplaying. But this is perfectly understandable since Lolita has just been recently popular amongst the con-goers and Aristocrat is still quite a new trend. I do hope though that both EGL and EGA be seen as fashion instead of cosplay here in the Philippines. Louise's GalleryMy Gallery
