Alodia usually celebrates with her family. Her 24th birthday bash, however, was a celebration unlike any other.

MANILA, Philippines – Alodia Almira Gosiengfiao usually celebrates her birthday with a quiet dinner.

The family affair fit the shy girl she was before donning her first costume and rising to the ranks of royalty in Philippine “cosplay,” a hybrid of the words costume and play. 

On March 31, cosplay fandom came out in the thousands to mark her 24th year. 

Alodia’s mother had picked her name out of a baby book which said it meant love. Her middle name Almira signified a princess. 

Since then Alodia has come of age.

Now she is recognized as the reigning queen of Philippine cosplay. Video and editing by Katherine Visconti. Scoring (Hey hey Alodia!) by Segatron. –
