Cosplay Runway

Cosplay Runway Returns

Cosplay Runway returns at Otaku Musika Festival at Tiendesitas, Pasig City.  This is a very unique cosplay competition which is first ever in the Philippines and is an original concept of Naruto Cosplayers PH (NCPH).  This will also be the first time that the original concept will finally be realized.

What is Cosplay Runway?

Cosplay Runway is inspired by one of the most renowned fashion shows in the world – Victoria Secret.  It is not all about whether you are in a mecha or awesome costume but about how you ramp your cosplay on stage, express characterization and wow the judges and the audience.  There will be a band playing carefully selected otaku and cosplay related songs while each cosplayer ramps on stage.

How will I Perform During Cosplay Runway?

It is just like any other cosplay competition the only difference is that there is no custom background music since a live band will be playing the background music.  You can do a mini skit and display your character in the allowable time of 1 minute.  The good thing about Cosplay Runway is this will level up the competition in terms of the costume because this is a cosplay fashion show in effect.

Can I modify my cosplay for Cosplay Runway?

Yes, you can modify your costume for the competition.  Remember, however, to maintain the general concept of the character.  It is important that the basic image of the character is maintained since this is still cosplay.  It is not about costume similarity anymore but how you add your own creativity in making the character closer to your heart.

Cosplay Runway Awards

Each category of Cosplay Runway will have an award of its own plus there will be an overall winner.

  1. Icon – Php2,000 in cash. The highest total score on all the criteria will be the winner.
  2. Costume – Php1,000 in cash for the cosplayer who has the most accurate costume and blends with him/her. The highest score on the Costume criteria will be the winner.
  3. Characterization – Php1,000 in cash for the cosplayer with the most resemblance to the character in his/her actions and performance.  The highest score on the Characterization criteria will be the winner.
  4. Creativity – Php1,000 in cash for to the most creative cosplayer in his/her costume, performance and catwalk. The highest score on the Creativity criteria will be the winner.
  5. Originality – Php1,000 in cash for the most original costume by a cosplayer integrating the character of the original. The highest score on the Originality criteria will be the winner.

Otaku Musika Festival at Tiendesitas

Otaku Musika Festival is finally happening on September 22-23, 2018 at Tiendesitas in Pasig City.  Thanks to Ortigas and Company for being our venue partner and allowing us to finally bring this event to life.  It will be our first ever 2-day event which focuses on music plus IT IS TOTALLY FREE TO ATTEND.  Our official hashtags are #OtakuMusika #OtakuMusika2018.

Events at Otaku Musika Festival

Otaku Musika Festival will be a showcase of talents not only from anime and JPop community but also from some related pop culture which we want to showcase.  We will have a total of 5 featured competitions for this event as follows.

  • Ultimate Singing Idol.  We started this event last Pinoy Otaku Festival 2018 and now we are bringing it back.  We decided to replace the Banzai! category with a solo category to give way to those who want to perform solo.
  • Groove It!  We are bringing back our dance competition but now you can perform as an individual, duo or as a group.  We miss seeing dances on events.
  • Battle of the Bands.  We really enjoy listening to bands and so do you.  Enjoy an expanded version of our POF BOTB.
  • Cosplay Runway.  We will finally do it for you,  This is a cosplay ramp where you ramp while a band is playing.  If you have watched a fashion show from abroad well this is somewhat like that – a cosplay fashion show with a twist.
  • Lip Sync Battle.  This will be the first time that we will try this out so I hope that you can support us.  Just bring a mic, memorize the song and moves, lip sync to it and perform to your hearts out.

Otaku Musika Festival Highlights

Besides the competition we will also be having exhibitors and booths as our partners.  Some of your favorite booths from Pinoy Otaku Festival will be returning for this event.  There will also be new partners coming in so that you can make the most our of going to the event.

Pinoy Idol Performance will also be one of the highlights.  We will be bringing back some of those that performed during the last Pinoy Otaku Festival 2018 plus more.  We will announce them once everyone confirms.

Naruto Cosplayers PH (NCPH) no longer affiliated with Cosplay Fashion Run 2014

Naruto Cosplayers PH (NCPH) after thorough consideration have decided to discontinue its affiliation as co-presentor of the upcoming event Cosplay Fashion Run 2014.  The event was originally dated August 23 at Amoranto Stadium but was moved to mid October and the venue will also be changed according to main organizer, Great Events Plus.

The decision came after key event changes were made which made the partnership impossible for the organization to continue.  The organization is also concerned about venue changes particularly moving the event to the UP Sunken Garden with event time going until 10:00pm.

Personally,  I also think that it is hard to have an event at the UP Campus that will last until late in the evening.  Although, I am sure that the event organizers will provide security within the venue, but the thing is what about the security when they go back home.

Although NCPH will no longer be part of the event we still bid the organizers the best of luck for this event and hopes that everything will go out smoothly.  We also thank them for their trust and confidence in having us on board during the first schedule of the event.
