Alodia at ToyCon 2009

Filipina cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao was mobbed by fans at ToyCon 2008, an event that brought her international fame. Continuing her rise to power, Alodia got three booths all to herself at ToyCon 2009. Accompanying her, as usual, was her ever-supportive younger sister and fellow cosplayer Ashley.

Looking at her costumes during the event — a gothic lolita and an elven archer — you can see why she needed three whole booths to accommodate her fans.

Alodia as Haruhi

Anime heroine Haruhi Suzumiya is a girl who creates great chaos, refusing to do what everyone else does. The same can be said of Filipina cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao. How fitting, then, that she cosplayed Haruhi in an elegant gothic lolita outfit for Maxicollector last Sunday. Filipino otaku scene veteran Ronald Guanzon filmed Alodia as she posed for photos with her fans.
