Playground EX is the biggest and grandest hobby expo in Bacolod.
Playground EX is a 2 day event that was held at SMX Convention Center Bacolod on September 14-15. Through this event, it aspires to promote and stimulate the culture of “hobbyism” in the island.
Playground EX brings you activities that will cultivate strong bonds between families and friends, inspire artistry and enthuse individual passions. The event aims to create a brand for Negros as one of the most sought hobbyist destinations in the Philippines. This event features show worthy toy collections, local and national cosplayers, K-pop and visual arts activities that every child in us can relate to.

Surprise Event Guests
SURPRISE! I have arrived in the Philippines!
Last year, when i was a guest at another expo, i was informed during my Meet & Greet that half the people were not able to make it because they were stuck on the other island.
And as i heard more details, my heart sank. Not because they couldnt come see me, but because the other expo was the only cosplay event on the island that year. And they missed out just like that. Bad weather. Traveling further was not an option for most of them as well.
To me, it was a solemn reminder of how privileged most of the rest of the world were. We would complain about distance and having too many conventions and the mildest discomforts.
I decided to do what i could for the Iloilo/Bacolod community in the next year. So here we are! Cya at Playground EX!

The Con Artists – Phawip
I love photography. My shots are mostly candid because I prefer them over the choreographed ones. I’m into games, anime, movies, TV shows, and music. I also like minimalistic and eccentric art and topics that are thought-provoking, controversial, and borderline normal. A treehugger and a conspiracy theorist.
The Con Artists – Dawie
I do mostly fan art and original illustrations. I’m a DIYer and a horror fan.
My art is mostly 3D, but not really!
