ESGS 2019: Three days of fun and activities
Posted by Ram Ronquillo October 29, 2019

It’s always a treat to see these characters come to life as interpreted by the cosplayers themselves.

From 24,000 walk-ins last year to a record shattering 42,000 this year.What a massive success this year's ESGS was. It…
