Haruhi


Alodia on Toys, Social Media, and Cosplay

The Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Erika Tapalla interviews Filipina otaku queen Alodia Gosiengfiao on some of her geeky passions: toys, social media, and cosplay. Alodia’s haters even get special mention.

It’s hard to believe a girl this pretty spends her Saturday nights bloghopping instead of clubhopping, surrounded by toys instead of boys. Welcome to the new world of geek chic. Watch Alodia cosplay anime heroine Haruhi Suzumiya at the end of the interview.

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.
