Liui Aquino

Liui Aquino

Liui Aquino (born 2001) is a retail businessman, model, and part-time cable TV and commercial actor in Manila, Philippines.

Early life

Liui Aquino is an international Filipino cosplay whose fans include Ibuki. He is tall with brown hair and blonde streaks. He claims to have full control over lightning and fire. Meaning, he can summon a bolt of lightning with just a snap of his fingers. He can raze down a city with his hands. He can also transform into a dragon or what appears to be a half-human half-dragon.

Career

He is an experienced cosplayer who has transformed his life-long love for anime and games with his experience as a model.

According to him in one of his interviews:

"My specialty is anime and CGI characters (Disney and Dreamworks).

In my cosplay, I make my costume from scratch, do my makeup and hairstyling.

Portray the characters.

And do my photoshoot and editing.

I never joined any cosplay competition, because way back then, for me this is just a hobby for fun. Also, when I was starting, I struggled a lot as a male cosplayer. Coz in the cosplay community, MOST female cosplayers get all the opportunities and spotlight. Plus, a lot of drams and issues arise even though this is just a simple art hobby”.

The invitation

Liui Aquino has been given international invitations and other opportunities.

According to him, “Most international cosplay events invite me to bring my costumes, meet the fans and... enjoy the free trip and food."

Most event companies pay for his guesting appearance, shoulder the round trip flight tickets, hotel accommodation, food, and other expenses.

Interview

In one of Liui Aquino interviews, he says

“This became my hobby since 2011, and just in 2019, I became viral on the Internet in the cosplay community because of my 'How to train your dragon' photos. I continued making more costumes and good photos with the help of my family and some friends... My dad and my niece are the only photographers I have as of now. I direct them how to take photos and I do the editing. And yeah, before this is just a hobby and my way of showing my artistic side, however, everything is becoming so great it became my career. I even quit my job because of cosplay" [1][2][3][4][5]
