Happy Holloween

Happy Holloween! Okay, to clarify things. Hyde, who cosplayed as Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn, isn’t the scary thing here. What’s so scary is the fact he darn pulled it off!

It was held last April 5 and 6 at Megatrade Hall 2, SM Megamall, presented by Otakuzine Anime Magazine and Lineage II.
