In a press conference held today at SM Megatrade Hall Function Room B, Dennis Uy, one of the organizers of Ozine Fest 2015, announces that famous illustration Shirahane Nao (a.k.a. DMYO) and Hong Kong cosplayer Tsubasa won’t be coming to the three-day event.
DMYO will not attend due to the same issues as photographer Shiro Ang.
Tsubasa, in his latest Facebook, said that he was denied boarding from Malaysia. According to Uy, Tsubasa’s passport will expire less than six months from the time of exit. With Tsubasa not coming, so does his partner Luffy.
Despite her earlier visa problem, Taiwanese cosplayer Misa will be available for the meet and greet on the second day with another cosplayer Shiraga. Their flight will arrive early morning.
With that, five out of the nine guests are available for the meet and greet until Sunday. The organizers are already discussing the next steps regarding the meet and greet sessions for Day 2 and 3.
