Henshin means transformation of the body in Japanese. Most of the Tokusatsu (Japanese live-action films/TV shows that has special effects) have this. Henshincon has become an event for Tokusatsu fans to enjoy.
Henshincon (Henshin Convention) was held in the fifth function hall of SMX, SM Mall of Asia. I went there together with other local artists to participate on the event. And it was such an amazing event. The booths, toys, and figures surely brought out the child in me.
Kamen(means masked in Japanese) Riders and Sentai (means squadron in Japanese) characters.

The best part of the event was having the chance to meet and talk to the actors that played the characters of the shows I watched as a child.
Kei Shindachiya. He played as Ken Hoshikawa or Five Blue in Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman.
Ryousuke Kaizu. He played as Michael Joe or Red Mask in Laser Squadron Maskman.
They had great programs as well. The rock bands are great as they played songs of shows I grew up with.

It was an amazing event. Nostalgic. Brings out childhood memories. Every 90’s kid (like me) would love it. 🙂
