(I joined the photoshoot held by DOTA Cosplayers at Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife last June 8, 2014, but due to the limited time I had that morning for the shoot, I was only able to feature a few cosplayer friends at the event. Hope to shoot more pics on the next photoshoot.)
Hailing from Quezon City, Francis has been at it at cosplay since 2010. As an active member of LARP.ph, he applies his skills and knowledge of military tactics and operations to both his cosplay and larping.
Cosplay had made Francis more confident in dealing with other people (...without pointing a gun, I hope), and gained many friends in the same addiction for anything military. Cosplay also gives him a chance to bring out and develop his skills in acting and potraying characters.
He comes sometimes as a mercenary, or black-ops freelancer, but he is also well known for his Lt. Simon "Ghost" Riley persona. He hopes that someday, he would able to cosplay Commander Shepherd from Mass Effect, or Zero from Borderlands 2. What ever he comes out as, you can bet your M4A1 he'd be kicking down doors and taking names.
