The ToyCon 2012 at SM Megamall

Yesterday my family and I went to attend the "The 11th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2012" at Megatrade Halls 1-2-3, 5th level Bldg B of SM Megamall.

We arrived early, at around 11:30 AM, at the venue of ToyCon 2012 and the place is already packed with people. There are Toy Booths, Food Booths, the Stage, Fresh Gear Booth and Alodia and Ashley's Meet-and-Greet Booth.

We bought 3 tickets...

We stroll around the area first and looked at what's in store for us. First stop, we bought cute earrings from this lady. That's us choosing for cute earrings.

We bought 4 cute earrings, a Cookie Monster Hair Clip, Donut Ring and 3 Botton Pins.

We enjoyed ourselves, especially my daughter who loves Cosplays. She had her photo taken together with cosplayers.

The highlight of the event is the Alodia and Ashley's Meet-and-Greet. The day before, we ordered Alodia's poster to be signed that day. Good thing we are there first and we were also first in line. Alodia and Ashley are sisters who are popular in Cosplaying. We had our pictures taken together and sisters Alodia and Ashley signed the poster. We bought the poster for Php200.

Alodia Gosiengfiao is the one in red costume while Ashley Gosiengfaio is in dark blue costume.

Here are the Food Booths

The day is just beginning, there are so much toys to see.

Aside from lots of toys, there are other activities present like drawing comic and cartoons.

There are also life-size Comic Characters like Hulk, Superman, Batman, Thor, Captain American and Wolverine.

It's funny to see "Panday" among The Marvel's Super Heroes...

The Panday (blacksmith in the Filipino language), whose real name is Flavio, is a fictional Philippine comics character.

Shagne my lovely daughter is very happy to finally have a Tekken T-shirt from Toy Con 2012.

Every year, my family and I almost never fail to attend events like this. And every time it always pleases my daughter. It's very tiring for me and my hubby because of all the long hours of walking but we endure it just to see our Baby happy. We went home at 9:30 PM, tired but happy.

June 15 - retailers day only (toys, comics and collectibles sales)
