OTAKUS TRANSFORM!

Enchanted Kingdom to Hold OtakonEK 2008

OtakonEK 2008

Riding on this popularity, the country’s first and only world-class theme park is giving a new twist to the popular anime convention by holding it this time at Enchanted Kingdom. “OtakonEK 2008” promises a colorful pop festival of anime, toys, manga, movies, video games, and music amid the park’s exciting and spectacular rides and attractions.

Guaranteed to give spice to any anime convention are the cosplayers or costume players. Cosplaying originated in Japan in 1978 and is rapidly gaining popularity in the country. Aside from anime themes, fantasy and science-fiction movies have also become part of cosplaying, owing to the international success of films such as “The Matrix”, “Star Wars”, “Harry Potter” and “The Lord of the Rings”.

Many otakus like to dress up in their favorite characters and even act the part! They prefer to do their own costumes although here in the Philippines, some are commissioned. Costume competitions are regularly held during these conventions.

“OtakonEK 2008” provides a perfect venue for cosplayers as they can come to the park for FREE this September 28, 2008 provided they come in their full costume. Characters from an animation, comics, toys, gaming, TV or movies are accepted.

A cosplayer may pre-register at http://www.enchantedkingdom.com.ph/otakonek before September 28, 2008 or register at the park gate near the Group Sales Office on the event day itself from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. EK reserves the right to refuse free entrance to those who do not meet the criteria and to those who do not meet the park’s standards for wholesome and safe entertainment.

Who will you be on OtakonEK 2008? Unleash the “otaku” in you this September!

Be part of the excitement and come to Enchanted Kingdom where the magic stays with you!
