Hi there!

My husband and I had our Cosplay-themed pre-nuptial shoot in Intramuros Manila Philippines and I consider it as the best Cosplay location I have seen so far here in our country.

Take a look at our photos...

Cosplay: Rinoa and Squall of FFVIII
Location: Baluarte de San Diego, Baluarte de Dilao and Puerta Real Gardes (Intramuros, Manila Philippines)
Photo and Video: by the Lightshapers Studios

I was at Intramuros, church several months ago. Indeed it has some nice aged architecture. I took some shot that resemble halls of perhaps a medieval castle. I did not have time to see the cool locations you made use of.

I don't think there can be a "best cosplay location" since different cosplays have different needs.

Thanks for sharing this, those are really wonderful photos! I've lived there for a long time and never appreciated the wonderful architectures in Manila. I guess people take for granted what they see all the time... at least I did.

Whenever I think of cosplay locations in the Philippines, UP Diliman's sunken garden automatically comes to mind. I'm thinking Vigan would be a nice place too, with the Spanish-influenced infrastructures.

Hope to see you both at future cons when I visit. Best wishes to both of you :)

I think depende talaga on what the theme of the shoot is. >.> But yeah, in general Intramuros and various universities - UP, Ateneo would work as well.

Grats heartrinoa on your engagement! :D
