Cosplay Queen Alodia Gosiengfiao to star in international movie
(SPOT.ph) At last weekend's ToyCon 2011 held at SM Megamall, celebrity cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao revealed to ABS-CBN News her role in an upcoming cosplay-themed movie, Cosplay Nation.
"Isa po ako sa mga supporting actors. Ang main character namin galing sa China (I'm one of the supporting actors. The main character is from China)," she said. Cosplay Nation will feature cosplayers all over the world and Gosiengfiao will represent the Philippines.
According to the ToyCon website, Cosplay Nation follows the life of Sasa Li, a young woman who comes from a conservative well-to-do family and is overshadowed by her older sister. Sasa soon spends all her time and energy to become a famous cosplayer, and eventually earns the title "China’s Lady Gaga." She meets Alodia (Gosiengfiao plays herself) in her journey, and soon, Sasa begins to enter the worldwide cosplay scene. The movie is set in China.
In the interview, Gosiengfiao also mentioned how happy she is now that many people are taking an interest in cosplay. "Natutuwa ako sa mga cosplayers ngayon, ang creative nila. Paganda ng paganda ang mga ginagawa nila (I'm happy with today's cosplayers, they're so creative. Their work becomes more and more beautiful)," she said. Gosengfiao, however, advised younger cosplayers to focus on their studies and to consider cosplay only as a hobby.
