Want to perk up a party or any occasion? Invite Cosplay characters and you will surely add more energy to the celebration. The presence of Cosplay players give joy, excitement and add life when they make special appearances. They perform special perky dance numbers or simply for fun picture taking with everybody.

Three years ago I had close encounters with them at a Cosplay convention in Manila and learned what Cosplay (short name for "costume play”) is all about. A phenomenon worldwide, Cosplay is an art by itself I found out. The participants known as Cosplay players wear costumes and accessories to role play a specific character or idea. They appear as a character taken from comic books, video games, films, or as a popular Japanese anime.  Kids and adults are amazed and can be fanatic about them.

Nowadays Cosplayers are getting popular and are being requested beyond Metro Manila. They even compete for best Cosplay costume and best performance awards. And they appear not only to impress but to enjoy immensely the character they represent. They are today in our city!

Thanks to Party Factory and Craft Haus, Zamboanga’s pioneer party shop, Zamboangueños can now experience Cosplay. It can zest up local party scenes, celebrations or any events with their electrifying performances and vibrant costumes.

For a starter, Party Factory is introducing Cosplay Naruto characters who possess supernatural abilities. They are hyper ninja "Naruto Uzumaki", the young "Gaara", shinobi "Sai", copy ninja "Kakashi Hatake", energetic ninja "Rock Lee", and rival ninja "Sasuke Uchiha". They are popular and hit Japanese manga and anime characters being shown thru TV series in many countries.

Congratulations to Bazhema Jalaide who graduated from Western Mindanao State University Laboratory (Elementary) School.

Party Factory Cosplay Naruto characters made their first Zamboanga appearance in Bazhema graduation party. Her guests were awed with the dance performance and appearance of the Cosplay players.
