BUM Equipment Asks You to Reveal Your Dark Side

August 24, 2011

You have read the title right. Now the question is, who is into Cosplay?! Cosplay or Costume Play has been making a trend nowadays (or maybe, it has been a lifestyle to some and I only get to be close with the people who love Cosplay just recently). Although I am not a fan of Anime and Manga (or cartoons), if I would be compulsary asked to do it, I would do Wonderwoman. *wink* *wink

But here’s good news for those who are into Cosplay(ing) and into costume design, BUM Equipment would let you create your own costume and just reveal your dark side. The contest dubbed Reveal Your Dark Side was launched last Monday, August 22nd at the 55 Events Place in Tomas Morato (I love this events place!).

There was an overflow of food, beer (and red wine for the ladies!), and good vibes despite the theme “dark side” with the presence of Cosplayers.

What I admire about BUM Equipment is that the brand understands and acknowledges the youth’s ideas, feelings and frustrations. With that in mind, and with the success of the My Story contest, BUM Equipment is launching the new contest incorporating Cosplay.

It seems to me that there would be alot of bloggers who would be joining this contest.. Alot had asked questions that night (now, I want to  know what character they are going to play) 😉

Contestants must incorporate a BUM apparel and create a costume inspired by a character or a fantasy one wishes to personify. What is exciting is there is no age limit for joining the contest. You should be 18 years old and above to join (I wonder if we would have granny Cosplayers in the country?!).


If you are into Cosplay, or is a frustrated fashion designer or just simply want to express yourself, head now to the BUM Equipment store and buy a BUM apparel and design it with what you have in mind. Submit your photos to Bum Equipment and campaign for your entry and ask the whole nation to vote for your entry.

Who wouldn’t get excited with Nikon D3000 DSLR Camera? or Blackberry 3G phones? or Samsung ES80 cameras?! plus tokens form BUM Equipment!

The contest started on August 8, 2011 and would end on October 30, 2011. Announcement of winners will be on October 31, 2011.

A little note though, make sure that you only buy from BUM Equipment store and ensure that you would use an original BUM apparel in making your costume. Top 10 finalists’ costume would be sent to the BUM Equipment office for checking and for showcase in the fashion show as part of the culminating event. 

For more information about the contest, check out the BUM Equipment site at or like the BUM Facebook Fan Page.
