Naruto Cosplayers PH (NCPH) will again be part of MATA Expo for the second year in a row. This time NCPH will be hosting the official cosplay competition at MATA Expo 2015 through Cosplay Runway 2. COSPLAY RUNWAY is a branded event by the organization which caters more on the visual appeal of the cosplay as well as promote cosplay as both a fashion and a hobby. It aims to promote cosplaying and also the uniqueness and creativity added to it by the cosplayer itself.
COSPLAY RUNWAY 2 at MATA EXPO will slightly be different since it will focus on the visual appeal and characterization of the cosplayer considering the majority of the audience present. This is also part of our commitment to COSPLAY FOR A CAUSE. NCPH will be helping raise funds for Free Video Relay Service (VRS) to help deaf Filipinos.
