Alodia Performs at Cyberzone Cosplay Event

Geeks love tech. Geeks also love cosplay. That’s why SM Cyberzone, the technology and gadgets section of SM Supermalls in the Philippines, holds an annual nationwide cosplay competition.

Dancer and Judge

The finals for the 2010 Cyberzone cosplay competition featured a special treat: a dance performance from Filipina cosplay queen Alodia Gosiengfiao. Cosplaying the futuristic soldier Amanda Werner from the sci-fi anime series Blassreiter, Alodia danced for an enthusiastic crowd filling multiple floors of the SM Megamall event center.

Despite the very real risk of taking a tumble on a slippery floor while wearing spandex-covered heels, Alodia managed to look every bit the anime-costumed superstar while dancing. After her performance, Alodia served as a judge for the cosplay competition. Click here to continue reading “Alodia Performs at Cyberzone Cosplay Event”…

Alodia’s trip was documented by Oscar-nominated director Morgan Spurlock, famous for his groundbreaking documentary Super Size Me. Alodia is one of five Comic-Con attendees featured in Spurlock’s upcoming documentary Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan’s Hope, in theaters 2011.

Apparently, Spurlock was so impressed with Alodia’s cosplay that he recommended her to his colleagues for a much, much larger project — one that also involves fantasy costumes. Click here to continue reading “Alodia Gosiengfiao in Talks for Warcraft Movie”…
