Cosplay.ph, the organizers of Cosplay Mania 14: Evolution, has announced on their Facebook page last Wednesday that the Melbourne-based Indonesian-Australian cosplayer Orochi X will return for the second time.

Orochi X is a member of the noted cosplay team Endless Illution, which includes another Cosplay Mania 14 returning guest, Pinky Lu Xun.

He is well known for his portrayals of Nobuyuki Sanada Chikage (from Samurai Warriors 4) and Siegfried Schtauffen from Soul Calibur IV, to name a few. He, alongside his team, has been judging events in and around Indonesia and other Asian countries.

Orochi X said in his page after the announcement that he is excited to come back and is hopeful to see stunning cosplay for all Anime fans.


He was first invited for Cosplay Mania 13 and, alongside Kaname, Goldy and Cosplay Mania 14 returnees Reika and Jesuke, judged the Fourth Cosplay Tournament of Champions, in which Team Cuddle Club Buddies Again were crowned as Philippine representatives to the Asian Regional Cosplay Championships (ARCC) at Anime Festival Asia 2013 in Singapore.

Orochi X is the seventh guest being announced for Cosplay Mania. Previously announced guests were Reika, Pinky Lu Xun, Jesuke, Vic Kumiko, and first time Manila guests Tatsumi Inui and Cosplay Mania J.A.M. (Japanese Anime Music) performer Aya Ikeda


Details for his meet and greet may be announced in the coming days.

In a related story, the tickets for the meet and greet session of Ikeda were postponed last Wednesday, July 16, due to the onslaught of Typhoon Glenda (Ranmmasun) in the most of Luzon, including Metro Manila.

The ticket selling for Ikeda’s meet-and-greet instead pushed through the next day, July 17.

Her meet and greet tickets are sold at PhP700 (estimated USD16.11), which is on-top of the regular admission prices ranging from PhP150 (estimated USD3.45) to PhP400 (estimated USD9.21)

Only 100 tickets are available for the meet and greet. The artist’s meet-and-greet session will happen on Sunday, October 05, in the afternoon.


Cosplay Mania ’14: Evolution happens on October 04-05 at Function Rooms 3-5 of the SMX Convention Center-Manila in Pasay City.
