Molito launches cosplay event and plays host to Otaku Encore Cosplay Idol S2

Molito in Alabang will be staging its first ever Otaku and cosplay related event on September 7-8, 2013.  The 2-day event will feature an outreach by the owners and managers of Molito, group cosplay competition and the cosplay pet show.  Meanwhile, the second day will serve as the launching of Naruto Cosplayer PH (NCPH)’s Cosplay Idol S2 (Season 2) plus a mini Battle of the Bands.

Cosplay Idol S2 will not only give the Cosplay Idol title to individual cosplayers but will also allow duo, trio and group entries to compete.  Since Cosplay Idol is not only based on cosplay performance but pure talent, the competition will be pretty interesting.

Molito Cosplay Idol is organized by Molito and Naruto Cosplayers PH (NCPH) in cooperation with the whole Molito community.  Among the media partners for this event would be Global Filipino Classifieds Magazine (GFC) and Infektius: Viral Inside Out.  The venue proper will be at the Open Ground, Molito, Alabang, Muntinlupa City (near Alabang Town Center back of Puregold Molito).
