APCC gave us a wonderful opportunity to ask him a few questions before the event.
Do you think you’d find your next muse in The Cage?
I certainly hope so. A younger set of cosplayers are set to take the stage at The Cage, and I’m looking forward to see them strut their costumes.
What do you expect from the very first CAGE contestants of the PH?
This cosplay competition should bring out the A-game from all of them, given the scope and prizes at stake.
What could you say about the cosplay community in the PH?
The community has grown leaps and bounds, bursting at the seams. You see a lot more people getting into it, both young and old… or the young at heart. LOL.
See him in action at the AsiaPOP Comic Con Mania this September 17-20 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. Tickets are now available to buy online (must have Visa) but you can also buy onsite during the event.
We have more interviews to share so watch out for more updates from Otaku Asia.
