Alodia: The Social Network

Congratulations to cosplay goddess Alodia Gosiengfiao on becoming the first cosplayer in history to reach one million fans! To commemorate this historic milestone in geek culture, here’s an image of Alodia styled as the movie poster from The Social Network, the film that reveals the origins of Facebook.

You can easily imagine Alodia as the Mark Zuckerberg of cosplay. Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. Similarly, Alodia’s influence gives cosplayers the power to share their creativity with wider audiences. She makes the cosplay world more open and connected. You don’t get to one million fans without revolutionizing cosplay.

Alodia Endorses TinierMe

Filipina gamer and cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao.

Filipina gamer and cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao has been endorsing video games from various Philippine game publishers since 2004. In fact, her reputation as a popular gamer girl reaches across the globe: she’s in talks to appear in the upcoming movie based on the hit Warcraft game franchise.

Gamer Girl Since Before Birth

The Warcraft movie may be slated for 2013, but this game endorser is going global much earlier than that. She’s now an endorser for TinierMe, a casual browser-based virtual world and social network from Japan featuring cute anime-style avatars.

Part of the reason Alodia’s so popular as a game endorser is the fact that she’s actually a gamer -– and not of the FarmVille or Bejeweled dabbler variety, mind you. She’s played everything from fantasy titles like World of Warcraft and the Final Fantasy series, to shooters like Counter-Strike and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Heck, Alodia’s mom was playing Super Mario Bros. when she went into labor. Click here to continue reading “Alodia Endorses TinierMe”…
