Renzo Alferez: On swooning many hearts as the ever-famous thief

In today’s article, let’s get to know another Kaitou Kid cosplayer, Renzo Alferez, as he shares the charm, passion and love for the series, Detective Conan.

He became a Detective Conan fan upon watching the very first episode. He was impressed by how our main guy Shinichi made his deduction in this particular episode (we all know that roller coaster, right?). According to Renzo, “He is extremely intelligent, he solves every case very [smoothly] and without flaw!” Renzo also liked how cool and confident Shinichi is whenever he has a case to solve.

Renzo was first captivated by the idea of cosplaying when he attended a local convention. He saw a booth that sells costumes and spotted a Kuroko No Basket Teiko Jersey that belongs to one of his favorite character: Midorima Shintarou. He hesitated at first but ended up giving in to the temptation (as most cosplayers do) and got the costume for himself. It was then followed by many costumes and, you guessed it! He loved cosplaying as much as we all do.

“I want be the character that I liked [and] loved. I want to wield weapons [and] have imaginary powers when I cosplay my favorite characters”, as Renzo told DCPH. Through cosplaying, he was able to meet a lot of people who share the same passion as him. As a genuine person he is, he values memories with friends, and he likes it better with fellow cosplayers. “It’s only a once-in-a-lifetime moment to portray characters you really loved since they’re fictitious alright so yeah!”

Sakura Gathering 2017: Every Fan’s Dream Get-Together

Detective Conan fans from all over the place gathered together to enjoy this whole day of fun and exciting activities. Of course, the games, the mysteries and the singing is back. What made this gathering so much better is that there are more fans who gathered this time, there are artists and shops who came and exhibited their work, and we got more time to be friends with each other.


What I love the most about this fandom is that everyone is just willing to be friends with everyone! I feel that we are more than just fans, we are a family. And thanks to everyone who has been doing their best, the event was indeed, successful.


Activities included the classic mystery-solving, where everyone battled their wits out to see who can outsmart the given case. There was also a flattering Karaoke contest where the participants get to sing their favorite Detective Conan song. Abigail was lucky and talented enough to win the title.


Soon, an intense battle of sack race determined which team is the most competitive. Despite the minor mishaps, it was all but a healthy competition and everyone managed to still walk away from the field with a smile on their face.


Who could forget how the cosplayers were able to strut their costumes during the cosplay competition? Nikita was undeniably the runaway winner (according to the audience) with her rendition of Vermouth from the Black Organization.


And of course, everyone experience the “hanami” feels with all the sakura petals and tea-drinking by the afternoon.


Prizes and freebies for this event is not your average joe. Sure, there were prizes such as posters, stickers and novelty items but some of the prizes given away this afternoon were movie tickets to the much anticipated Movie 21: The Crimson Love Letter. Another prize is a scholarship for Module 101 on Animation from SEACAT, our partner; and that’s not only for one fan, BUT TWO who are willing to take on animation to a whole new level. But one particular prize shocked everyone in a good way, and that is TWO tickets for Japan! It includes roundtrip airfare and lodging, and everyone was rooting for it.

People also enjoyed the displays of manga and toy collection of one of our members and biggest supporters, Laila.

In between the activities, everyone dropped by the artist’s booth to snag some cool souvenir from our exhibitor artists Flyhy Sky and China. I was also lucky enough to showcase some of my personal projects and DCPH Founder Ruffa also displayed original and official DCPH stickers.


Truly it was a day to be remembered. Although some slips happen like me losing my obi (I was so pissed that I cannot wear my yukata), everyone was still all smiles at the end of the event. We have been receiving good feedback and that’s how we are sure that we can continue to make events like these possible in the future.


And of course, after all the stressin’ and enjoyin’, everyone who stayed for the after-party was able to enjoy the pool!

Thanks to everyone who joined us in the fantastic event. Watch out for our mini-events like the Block Screening of Movie 21 at SM Megamall and more!

Tottori Sand Dunes Conan Airport

And so, today I’ll introduce you to the Tottori Sand Dunes Conan Airport! This is quite old news and I am sure this is not your first time hearing about this airport. But today I would like to bring you some pictures of the airport!

Tottori City, the capital of Tottori Prefecture, is located in western Japan, along the coast of the Sea of Japan. Tottori is famous for its sand dunes, which cover over THIRTY SQUARE KILOMETRES (wow!) of coast to the north of the city centre. And in this prefecture, there is an airport that is named after its sand dunes and well, Conan! Isn’t that amazing?

So on the way to the airport, you can see this sign:
