Final Fantasy: Black Mage and White Mage!

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Have you ever dreamed of turning somebody into a frog? Or do you think it would be amazing if you could shock baddies with electrifying bolts of thundaga and hurl sizzling balls of firaga at bird-brained bullies? If you think so, then you must be a Black Mage at heart! The “Black Mage” is one of the most famous and iconic character classes in the Final Fantasy franchise. Traditionally depicted as dark figures wearing blue or black robes and wide-brimmed hats that shadowed their faces save for their gleaming yellow eyes, Black Mages inspired awe and fear in the Final Fantasy games. They possess a wide selection of elemental spells that they can cast to wreak havoc in the battlefield and obliterate anyone who dares to cross their way.

Alodia Gosiengfiao, a Filipina Cosplayer, combined hotness and magic by cosplaying as a sexy black mage, deviating from the traditional black mages such as Final Fantasy IX’s Vivi Orunitia, yet retaining some costume elements that made her look like one undeniably. It would be amazing to see her bake people with magic!

That’s not all, though! Ashley Gosiengfiao, Alodia’s sister, also participated in the cosplay as a White Mage—a mage specializing on recuperative and support magicks!

White Mages in Final Fantasy are usually seen in immaculate white robes with hoods pulled over their heads, featuring red, triangular patterns on the cuffs of their sleeves and the hems of their robes. These sisters make an excellent magical tag-team, don’t you think so?

Dream of Teenager: Lahoo and Shall

Sunday, November 9th, 2008

dream of teenager cosplay - lahoo and shall - jin joson and alodia gosiengfiaoDream of Doll’s “Dream of Teenager” is a collection of ball jointed dolls. Featured in this photo are two of the most well-known cosplayers in the Philippines, Jin Joson as Lahoo and Alodia Gosiengfiao as Shall.

Ever since I posted Jin’s photo as Ishida Uryuu, there’s been a non-stop debate with regards to Jin’s gender. As for myself, I’ve given up trying to figure it out unless Jin would like to comment and let us all finally know what the truth is.

Either way, this is a really good cosplay of Lahoo and Shall. I never thought people would actually try and cosplay real dolls and succeed so well. Thanks to Tricia Gosingtian and Jin for the wonderful photography!

Death Note: Amane Misa 02

death note cosplay - amane misa

This is the second Amane Kisa Cosplay featured in this blog… But I have a hard time choosing from one or the other.

Philippine’s Cosplay Idol, Alodia “Edjie” Gosiengfiao, is so popular in the Philippines that she is usually asked to judge cosplay competitions instead of joining them. (Apparently, if she joins a said competition, she wins hands down. So she becomes a judge to “give chance to others”.)

This is originally found on Alodia’s Deviant Art. You may view the larger image here. Photography is done by Tricia Gosingtian.

Indeed… “What a wonderful way to kill.”
