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.

Inquirer Provides Video Embeds

The Philippine Daily Inquirer now provides video embeds. Awesome. I can’t seem to figure out how to scale them up, though.

According to their AdBrite sales page, my recent interview is the fourth most watched video on their site right now. Glad you’re all enjoying it.
