How to make the most out of your WMSU Palaro experience? GO COSPLAY!
Remember my old college club Nihon Fure Ai Kai 日本触れ合い会? Well, last time they invited me to judge their cosplay competition during the Nursing Palaro. This time, they gladly welcomed us (Patsy and yours truly) to cosplay and help promote their Cosplay Cafe.
The Cosplay Cafe was an activity by the Nihon Fure Ai Kai club aimed to generate income to fund other club activities that promote camaraderie among members and promote the club itself to other Nursing students. It's actually quite popular not only in WMSU but in other universities as well. Students from other schools visited the university's sports festival to get a chance to experience eating in a cosplay cafe. :)
They served ramen, confection and drinks to paying customers. Aren't these servings adorable? The ramen surprisingly tasted good, too. I was able to sample them at the end of our promo walk.
Anyway, the promo-walk activity that I did together with fellow ZamboBlogger PatSy was planned in a short time. PatSy was in town and to let her enjoy the ongoing WMSU palaro, I invited her to cosplay with me during the last day of the Cosplay Cafe. Gail and Sheed tagged along too.

PatSy is a Zamboanga Blogger and cosplayer based in Metro Manila. It was her first time cosplaying in Zamboanga. :)

We really didn't talked much about what we were going to wear that day but we ended up wearing similar costumes:Both of us wore purple wigs, pink seifukus and had a bow on our head. How cute is that?
|Tsukasa and Kagami? LOL kidding!|
We walked around the campus holding our Cosplay Cafe sign, inviting potential patrons to visit and eat there. People asked for a photo op with us. Kids got excited just by seeing us in our costumes and one approached us, wondering if the wigs we wore that day were our real hair color and style. How adorable.
|It felt like we were those girls in costumes in the streets of Akihabara. :D|
It was nice to hear pleasant comments from people who saw us that day. One common description of our activity was "cute". Hihi :D

We celebrated the success of the cosplay cafe and end of the palaro by munching ramen with the club members.

Congratulations to the members of the Nihon Fure Ai Kai and to the staff of the cosplay cafe for the huge success~ It was the last day of the cafe yet customers were still visiting for a bite. Job well done!
|PatSy so shy :D|
Thank you so much to the club president and my dear Kouhai Ivy for inviting us to your club activity~! Hope to see you guys cosplay again next year.
