Alodia Mobbed at ToyCon

Alodia at ToyCon

Just like at M3Con 2008 two weeks before, Filipina cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao was mobbed at ToyCon 2008.

Alodia Signs Autographs at ToyCon

Between photo sessions as a sword-wielding schoolgirl, Alodia signed autographs for fans. The pen is mightier than the sword; Alodia wields both.

Aside from her usual prints, she’s added something new to her merchandising: bookmarks. Wonder when the photobooks and DVDs come out.

Alodia Bookmark

Alodia now bookmarks my copy of Clay Shirky’s Here Comes Everybody. Awesome read, by the way; I recommend it to all bloggers. How fitting that Alodia herself is turning problogger soon.

Someone at ToyCon actually asked me why this was all happening. I guess becoming a media entity unto yourself, becoming a star outside the showbiz machine, is still a strange concept to most Filipinos.
