Interesting facts for OCTOBER 2010 – only happens once every 555 years We are making trivial history: We will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays which means 5 weekends!! And this Sunday’s calendar date will be 10-10-10, Lucky Day! Especially lucky in Chinese Feng Shui. Or so they say.
But I am not here to bring luck but some cheer to the upcoming weekend. So here ya go. And front lining it, we got a rather delicious sampling of shiny, fleshy thighs for this week’s selection thigh highs. Yes, THT Idol Edition is back for this month, and we’ve got the perfect 10, Mai Nishida front lining it.
If a frilly headband is what clearly identifies that of a maid, thigh highs make the statement. Long before thigh high stockings came on to the mainstream of making moe statements, western culture had long been using its powers of manipulation. Perhaps when asked which work uniform would most likely be wearing thigh high stockings as a standard, only three occupations spring to mind; nurses, flight attendants and most prominently, at least in my book, maids. Yes, maids. Be it French or English inspired, they wear nearly identical uniforms. Frilly head band, buttoned up dress, bib apron, maybe a bow tie, and a mini skirt for the French while at least calf length for the English inspired maids. Continue reading
This weekend saw the largest annual gathering of Japanese pop culture in the Philippines. Or at least what we can scrap off from the Neon lit streets of Akihabara. Ozine fest plays host to retailers, cosplayers and anime fans here in the Philippines. While it’s not exactly up to par to much more renowned events around the otaku scene such as Wonfes or AFA, we make do with what mainstream media had to offer. It had the makings of a full weekend for me. Continue reading
Ozine recently held the years first Anime/gaming convention for the year, Otaku Expo, at the SM Megamall, Megatrade Hall B. One of the event’s highlights was a Maid Cafe.
Lord Vader is proud to say that he enjoyed his stay and that his server, Zelly, did an excellent job for someone who was in her first foray in being a maid in a maid cafe. Very accommodating young lass and seemed like she was really enjoying what she was doing. Kudos to her. I’d also like to extend my apologies to her as well, as it seems that she got startled when I walked in. Did I mention she could wiggle her elf ears?
Last Sunday, September 13, SM Megamall’s Megatrade hall B was undersiege by a mob. A mob of Cosplayers, local otaku and pop culture fans and those of just the curious mind. Cosplay Mania was afoot and Cosplayers of different shapes, shades sizes and eccentricities were there to regale and put up a show to the media, bloggers and fans alike.
If I may recount my first impressions as I arrived “Ooh lookit teh purty cosplays!!” Walking further along; ooh, more cosplays, cool~! For a moment I actually thought I was at the wrong area and assumed that a Cosplay convention was going on at the same time and that the Comic-con was in the next Hall. As I got in to the event hall, T’was the retailers that occupied the center portion of the hall and I just had to go and ask myself, “Where are the artists?”.
