Kids, teeners and young-at-hearts dressed up as their favorite animes to showcase their love for their portrayed characters. They wowed guests as they paraded in their intricately designed, hand-made costumes.
Hero TV Channel Head, Ruel Ferrer said, “The Ultimate Cosplay Battle celebrates anime creativity at its finest. While it championed the anime and cosplay community, the event provided an opportunity to achieve total anime experience among fans, and a different kind of satisfaction among the cosplay winners.”
