Cosplay Event strikes GenSan this week!
Cosplay hobbyists and enthusiasts of GenSan and the rest of South Central Mindanao have something to look forward to this weekend as Gaisano Mall of GenSan has something cooked up for them!
It’s the four-day CHAIN or Cosplay Hobby and Interest Nexus!!!
Cosplay is short for COSTUME PLAY, a type of performance art which originated from Japan wherein people wear costumes to represent a certain character or idea. Characters are usually from popular Japanese cartoons or manga but could also include Western cartoons and science fiction.
This GenSan Cosplay event actually started yesterday, March 23 and will end on the 26th!
Events vary from Cosplay competitions (Walk-in Freestyle, Pair & Group Cosplay), Drawing Contests (One-shot Manga Drawing, Original Character & Original Mecha Drawings) to Anime Singing Contests, Yu-Gi-Oh Tournaments to Cosplay and Manga Workshops!
There’s also gonna be a Cosplay Cafe and Toy Exhibit!
We have never been to a cosplay event before and are excited to witness this. Hopefully this activity will draw more interest on this phenomenon gripping the younger generation of today because they need all the more productive diversions they can get to stay away from drugs, alcohol and other vices!
Thanks to CAGE GenSan (Cosplay, Ani-Manga Gaming Enthusiasts) for spearheading this!
