  1. sorry for this out-of-the-blue-post, but i personally dont think “pinoy cosplay” is a good site.

    i believe that you do know that the admins of that forum are in bad terms with

    and i guess they didnt ask permission, as usual, to use my photos.

    Well, hope this didnt bother you that much. You should try to visit, that site should be more informative.

  2. Great insights on the power of cosplay and modern myth, Joey. 🙂
