Cosplay At MBK Mall Bangkok

One of the highlights of our visit to Bangkok was being able to witness the weekend Cosplay and dance program at MBK mall.  We actually didn't have any idea that they have special shows on weekend.  We just happened to pass by at MBK as we initially planned to watch a movie before I send the kids to the airport at night time.  On our way to the mall, we chanced upon these cute Thai teenagers wearing cute costumes.  It's my first time to see this so I was not aware what's going on and the kids told me that, that was actually a "Cosplay" which stands for "costume play".   I haven't seen this kind of thing yet in the Philippines so I really don't have any idea about Cosplay.  We were entertained by their lovely costumes and they were really posing for pictures.  Here are some of the pictures that we had and my personal favorites:

I really like the face of this Thai teenage kid.  Isn't she so cute? :)





Both my son and daughter grabbed the chance to have a photo taken 
with some of the Cos players. :)

Another two cute Thai girls! :)

Another photo with a Cos player.


The fun and excitement did not end there as we were still able to watch a program participated by those talented Thai students.  The show is free and I guess that it's a part of the weekend activities of this Thai group of teenagers. 



Having able to witness a Cosplay at Bangkok was indeed a beautiful experience.  All of us really had a great time. :)

  1. Costume players are always in these days. There's always COsplay events at SM and seeing them live indeed brings a lot of excitement especially for teenagers. Obvious naman na natuwa ang 2 mong anak, Krizz. An experience worth remembering.

  4. Hi Krizza! Nice experience you have here! I have not been to a Cosplaying event as well but I've heard a lot about it. I'm always amazed at their costumes and make ups! It's like cartoons in real life! :)

  6. i agree with Lainy maraming teens ang nahahaling sa cosplay dito sa pinas, grabe ang appeal at popularity nito sa teens... infact dami nilang events and competition whole year round
    but, dressing up in costumes and engaging in roleplay of favorite characters, not my type hahaha

  7. Cosplay is also quite popular over here in Singapore. I do love the way some of the girls are doll up as anime characters

  9. I wish someone wore the costume in Maidsama. I'd love my kids to encounter a cosplay when they're older. They're still at the age where they enjoy mascots.

  13. There is an annual Cosplay event actually here in Metro Manila. It's an interesting gathering actually. Last year, the theme of our office Christmas party went on Cosplay. :)

  14. We have cosplay people here also, although I have not seen one in person yet. They make a big hype on cosplay but from an objective view, I think it is not much different from Disney parades or other parades where people wear costumes to look like someone or something. Anyway, I think it's an event that is a feast for the eyes, what with all the colors. You don't get to see pink haired girls everyday hehehe.

  18. I'd love to see a cosplay, it's so fascinating. My husband loves Anime, so I don't need to drag him to the event! He will also love it for sure.

  19. I'm not into cosplay pero nice to look at the creative costumes talaga. Our company party starting in an hour has an anime cosplay theme.

  20. There are plenty of cosplay events here and there a lot who are able to do justice to the character they are trying to portray. If cosplay were already around when I was a teen, I'd probably have joined events too. :)
