It’s been a long time since my last visit to the Philippine Cosplay Convention, and now that I’ve went there, here are some photos.

Actually, I don’t have a lot of great images from the PCC. The thing is, this is the first time they’ve moved from the Midtown Atrium to the Orosa Atrium, which means that they’ve expanded a year after Cosplay.ph has withdrawn their partnership with its organizer, Hobby at Worx (then called Hobbiworx).

What went at the Midtown Atrium then? The Manila Action-Figures, Toys Collectibles and Hobbies Festival (MATCH Fest), which is a complement event of the PCC. The MATCH Fest started last Friday, March 11.

I believe I saw I am Cardboard in previous events before, but this is the first time I’ve interacted with them. Calling all those who can’t afford the Galaxy VR, you got to see this for yourself.

I was supposed to make some Gunpla, but due to lack of time I wasn’t able to do so. I took a picture of a Beargguy to compensate.

It’s been a long time as well since I saw Ambush, and was told that they’re now with the Inquirer for two years. I first saw them in the Manila Bulletin way back.

Here’s some shots of the displays beside the stage.

…and here’s a display that I shouldn’t mistake for anything else — a LEGO display from the members of the Pinoy LEGO User Group (PinoyLUG — now I’m getting their name right this time). There’s more displays from the group, but this is only the best shot I got.

I’ll close this post with some shots from the second level taken around 1PM. Come to think of it, they’ve mentioned that the next TAGCOM is going to be held in April 16 to 17. That’s their 10th year, take note.
