After five years of blood, sweat and tears, it has finally culminated to this: I’m launching my first cosplay photography book, Geekology 101.
Where: National Book Store Greenlanes @ Greenhills Shopping Center
When: October 20, 2012
It would be hosted by Jinri Park, and of course my covergirl Alodia Gosiengfiao would be there as well.
If you’re game enough to cosplay as any character, get a chance to win a camera courtesy of Canon Digital Cameras - Philippines, and bags, tripods courtesy of Rollei and Phottix
All my book royalties would be donated to charity. This time, it would benefit Canon’s Print for Smiles, which funds Operation Smile.
The book retails for P 345.00.
More than just a book, this is also our small way of giving back to the community and to everybody who have supported us in this pop culture craziness over the years.
I really hope to see you guys there! :D
This was a dream cosplay shoot for me. I mean, Phoenix was a character I’ve been itching to pull off a cosplay shoot on. I’ve attempted Phoenix several times with a lot of learnings in the process instead of a final shot. But we kept at it, believing that one of these days we would be able to do justice to the character. After more than a year of researching, and imagineering… I hope this new attempt of ours would also ignite your imagination.
This is the toughest cosplay shoot we have done to date in terms of effort and time.
Patience was the key to getting the right pieces together.

Here’s a clue…
Yes, I went to Filipino fast food chain Jollibee!
Jollibee is one of Marvel’s newest international licensees, with a very cool Avengers promotion hitting soon, so I dropped in to try their food for myself.
