TagCom 2018 Aftermath

We were once again part of the official media partners of TagCom 2018 and we can safely say that this year’s event was a lot better compared to last year.  The focus of the theme of the event returned and there were more booths and considerably more attendees as well.  Congratulations to the organizers headed by Hobby at Worx (HobbyWorx) and their partners: Animax, GSM Blue, Kensja Store, Cospray, Cubizone and a lot more.

Cosplay Competition

Compared to previous years, TagCom 2018 had tripled the number of competitors.  There are more than 20 cosplay participants this year competing for Best Male, Best Female and Organizer’s Choice.  At some point, the participants can be remembered as some of those which competed in an international event last March.  it was a fun and enjoyable competition which lets everyone showcase their talent in cosplaying.

Winners for the TagCom 2018 Cosplay Competition are Izaiah Luke Buelos (Bumble Bee from Transformers) for Best Male; (Sabre from Fate Stay Night), Best Female; and David D’Angelo (Kratos from God of War), Organizer’s Choice.

Beside the main winners, there were also special awards from San Miguel GMS which was awarded to the cosplayer of the Warrior of Light from Final Fantasy I.  Another cosplayer, Knievel Rosaroso was approached by one of the judges and given a prize because of his superb rendition of Guy Sensei from Naruto.

Booths and Auction

The main highlight of every TagCom and HobbyWorx event is their booths and auction.  There were tons of items that went into an auction and some of them are indeed rare collectible.  Imagine a starting bid of just 1 peso for a premium collectible.  Veteran auctioneer, Joel delos Santos was the host of the segment.

There were many booths dedicated to toys and collectibles during the event.  Aside from that, the artist alley was also a place which enjoys the attention of event goers.  Great discounts were also given during the event by the various booth concessionaires. More photos are uploaded on our Facebook page.

We would like to congratulate TagCom organizers, sponsors, and partners for another year of success.  This is their 12th year by the way and we are looking forward to the next one come 2019.

What are the Furry Fandom and FurryPinas 2018?

Do you know Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Akamau, Pokemon, Barney and others?  If you do know them, then you have a basic idea of what the Furry Fandom is.  Here is a quick video to explain to you more about it.

FurryPinas 2018 is being organized by the Philippine Furry Con Leaders Roundtable and is done for the benefit of Hands of God Charity Works. This is not their first time to hold this event but will be the event that is first open to the public.

Among the missions of the event are:

  • To make the furry fandom a mainstream hobby for anybody
  • Showcase the local & international furry community
  • To assemble and bring out the community’s brightest talents

Why should we all attend FurryPinas 2018?

Why not?  Their ticket price is pegged at Php115 (early bird) and is probably the most affordable convention ticket being held at SMX.  Plus, with that ticket price, you already get freebies.  If that is now awesome then we wonder what is.

FurryPinas 2018

FurryPinas 2018 offers a lot of things happening during the 2-day event which includes talks and seminars, dealers den, competitions, charity, tabletop and video games, and a Fury Rave party among others.  It will be one exciting new fandom which I am sure all of you will come to love.
