Filipina Otaku Cosplay Sisters Alodia & Ashley Gosiengfiao | Photos

Filipinas Alodia and Ashley Gosiengfiao are the country's most famous cosplay (costume play) and otaku girls. They are both of Filipino, Chinese and Spanish descent. Her father, Ed, is a Filipino Chinese; while mom Mariglor is a Spanish Filipina.

The older Alodia Almira (right in above photo), whose name means "love" and "princess", is a VJ (video jock) for Animax TV Singapore. She is also one of the "Ani-mates" - the ambassadors of Animax Asia, and one of the co-host of the ABS-CBN prank show Laugh Out Loud. 

She made her mark at a tender young age of 15 (born March 9, 1988) by entering various cosplay competitions, particularly, by winning in the C3 Convention in 2003 as FFX-2's Gun Mage Rikku. 

Now she not only participates in local and international anime events, the elder Gosiengfiao sister is an image model for Globe Tattoo, Canon product, Swatch watches, Easy Phamax Wheatgrass health products and Fresh Gear jeans (with sister Ash), and Belo Skin Care.  

She continuously landed in the 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll by FHM Philippines, where she ranked #86 in 2012, #88 in 2011, #76 in 2010 and #87 in 2009. UPDATE! Make sure to grab a copy of  FHM Philippines July 2013 issue. She is their cover girl! Tweet-tweew!

Meanwhile, not far behind from her sibling's footsteps is the younger Ashley Arraiza Gosiengfiao (born December 13, 1989), who aside from being a well-known otaku and cosplayer like her older sister, is also a musician (in image below with guitar)

Ash rocks; having been in bands such as The Bestidas and Hymn of Siren. Yeah, she's really into those six-stringed wondrous instruments called guitars! BTW, she is also the product endorser of Silverworks jewelries.
