And the event post is here. It's a wee bit late but still, let me present to you..
Anime Fiesta ADZU 2014
Ateneo de Zamboanga is slowly recognizing our small cosplay community and their annual cosplay event proves this so. It started with a cosplay event for a casue and now this anime event which happened during their popular Alumni Homecoming week.
The event was specially documented by a local tv show named VezTV, powered by the ever active SkyCable channel
I have a few seconds of exposure on this video. I tried my best to act like Soah but I was having so much fun that time!
I met my old cosplay friends and got to know new ones too. These are some of my shots with cosplay enthusiasts and fans.

Anyway, Anime Fiest AdZU of AFA 2014 was a cosplay contest open to all cosplayers. I joined in because I wanted to cosplay Soah, one of my long time cosplay plan.
It was difficult to construct a cosplay skit for the character since it does not have an anime series (where I can get an idea on how to portray her), so I opted to find some ideas from other Soah cosplayers in YouTube.
I watched a few traditional Chinese and Japanese dances and incorporated a pleasant, somewhat traditional background music.
Too bad I was not able to ask a friend to take a video of my performance. Nevertheless, my friend took a couple of photos of my skit and bits of it was shown in the video above.
I walked around showing my outfit and doing a few poses. I was really nervous back then... my hands were shaking!
Well, I made it through the skit thanks to my friends who believed in me and cheered on! The audience were cheering for me too! I can't believe they liked my cosplay! ^_^
After my cosplay skit ramp, people asked for photos of me. I wasn't really expecting this since I dressed up as an unfamiliar character.
My guess that time was maybe they got attracted to my red brocade costume. It kind of different from the other cosplayers that day.

To all those who cheered on while I was doing my performance, thank you so much for the support! Your kind words and compliments will be my motivation to do even better next time.
I definitely need to improve my Soah makeup next time and maybe mind my flowing gown while I am walking around. I don't want it to be ruined because of my carelessness.
I wish I will have another chance to cosplay Soah again! Maybe I'll find time for a cosplay shoot, preferably on a river and I hope with a Mui cosplayer!
Thank you so so much for reading and watch out for my next post!
