Shinobu in ARCHCon 2014

I've been attending ARCHCon since 2007, when we were still trying to get an idea about how to organize a hobby event for Otaku Fest. Since then, I've been trying to attend every year. I had to skip a couple years I think because I had Saturday work from my previous company.

Anyway, this year, I was there and I'm really thankful that my sister never ceased to stop supporting me during ARCHCon and other hobby conventions. I've been planning to redo my Shinobu with proper helmet and wig styling. Finally, I was able improve my Shinobu cosplay during ARCHCon last October 25, 2014. Here are some few photos, taken by my very supportive sister;








Things I improved:
- Better wig styling
- Wore contacts
- Better make up
- Bought the right goggles

I didn't have time to buy Mister Donuts (I bought some on my first Shinobu cosplay) but I will surely buy and bring a sword next time. :)

My Bohol Trip

Because October 6 was declared a holiday, me and my officemates decided to visit Bohol for that weekend, a neighboring island which has a lot of tourist attractions. I've been in Bohol twice already, once when I was in high school with my family and once in college when we had our Literature field trip. However, this recent visit is kind of different because it's been a year since that tragic earthquake that struck Bohol.

So here are some of my photos during the trip:

Chocolate Hills

Shiphaus

Loboc River

Man-made Forest

Baclayon Church
(it is under restoration because it was badly damaged by the earthquake, same as the other old churches in Bohol)
Sandugo Monument
Panglao Island
Balicasag
Virgin Island

So much has changed after the earthquake last year but the place is still worth visiting. I really had a great time with my co-workers. Until my next trip adventure! ^_^
