    congratulations to all of them. really, really fantastic cosplayers.

    btw, i dont think yaya han is of chinese ancestry. probably vietnamese. but i suppose we have to verify further before any conclusions.

  4. Yaya Han says:

    Mike, I have no idea what you are talking about.

    No one is competing for the cover. We are just submitting because we love cosplay and this seems like a great book to be a part of because it allows cosplayers from all over the world to submit.

    I am really disappointed at how you’re turning this into some sort of competition news when none of us, Alodia, Francesca, or I, submitted for that reason.

    I’m having issues getting my photos saved so I don’t even know if my submission will go through.

    Please remove me from this article, or edit the content so it will be truthful.

    Thank you,
    Yaya Han

      Thanks for dropping by, Yaya! I appreciate that you submitted your pictures out of love for your art, and not out of competitive spirit.

      As pure and noble as your intentions are in submitting your photos, the fact remains that only twenty-four cosplayers will be chosen for the cover. Many have submitted, but only a handful will make it. From a purely objective standpoint, limited eligibility (twenty-four slots) for a scarce resource (the cover) is the very definition of competition.

      To make sure my readers know that you didn’t submit your pictures out of competitive spirit, I’m updating the post to include the salient part of your comment at the very top of the article. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you and twenty-three other wonderful cosplayers grace the cover of Otacool 2. 🙂

    In a recent interview, Alodia emphatically stated that Filipino cosplayers can go toe-to-toe with international cosplayers. Otacool 2 is proving her right. 8)

      Hello Mike!

      I just would like to say that I agree with Yaya Han. 🙂 We’ve submitted entries only for fun and the love of cosplaying. We don’t really mean to compete or go head-to-head with other cosplayers all over the world.

      About the interview, yes, we mentioned that fellow Filipino cosplayers are also great but it wasn’t used in the context of just merely competing over others. We just meant that we have really great and talented people in our country. This shouldn’t create tension within the community because I don’t mean it to be harmful in any way. Just words of encouragement to fellow kababayans. 🙂

      The are a lot of great cosplayers coming from all corners of the world and I only hope that we would all have a harmonious relationship with each other. 🙂

      Thanks,
      Alodia
