As the day started, people went around Hall 2 for the cutting of ribbon for the 75th anniversary of Batman. as you enter the said hall, you’ll see the booth of Batman, with the whole cast portrayed by cosplayers here in the Philippines. A lot of fans went and had a photo op with the said cosplayers at the booth.

HENTAI KAMEN

As last TOYCON 2013 held at SM Megatrade Hall event, the famous Hentai Kamen cosplayer, showed himself once again to the public and made a scene among other cosplayers. Hentai Kamen came out around 6 in the afternoon at the fashion hall, bystanders, cosplayers, photographers and congoers immediately saw him surrounded him. Of course, comrades of Hentai Kamen cosplayer were around to check if any guards are coming so that they can disband the scene.

It was a wonderful comeback for Hentai Kamen for his last appearance was Ozine Fest 2014 held at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia. It’s great to see him again, and hopefully he’ll come out on the upcoming events as well.

VENUE

Every year, Toycon hold their event at SM Megatrade halls 1-3. With the amount of people that came for day 2. They are thinking of transferring to another venue for Toycon 2015.

With the help of the fashion hall of SM Megamall, people get to go around easier. Have a spot to stay while waiting for their friends, and a good spot to take photographs for the photographers.

With all of this happening, people still came to the event and enjoy themselves. Day 2 ended with a success, and all are expecting an even greater day for it’s last day of the event.

IN THE END

The event was indeed a success for it’s 2nd day, people were still around even though the mall was about to close for they are having fun with their fellow cosplayer friends, photographers, looking at the exhibit, browsing rare toys and collectibles, and many more. Everyone can’t wait to come back for TOYCON 2014 day 3 which is the last day of Asia’s biggest and longest running convention for toys and hobbies.

A gentle reminder for all: do take care of your belongings and be courteous enough to the people around you during conventions, for they are, like yourself, attending to have a wonderful time.
