Two months ago, we were a handful of freelancers bound by friendship and a shared passion towards esports and gaming. Today, we are GameGeek.
United States of America. Philippines. Canada. United Arab Emirates. India. Russia. Macedonia. When we say distance is not a problem, we mean it.
We used to be a group of people volunteering for an esports project alongside our day jobs. At a later time, however, the team had to leave the esports project that sold our efforts. Unsurprisingly, the bond we had did not left us at all.
Fast forward to wherever we are now, new people were added into the team, but the spirit and bond is all the same – stronger, even.
Exciting events came and went. One day, we were chugging booze with Team Secret, the next day we’re all hyped up covering League of Legends’ Rampage 2017. On these events, hosts have been shuffled (including me, being the first one).
More events and projects came and with it arose a need for someone to represent the team. With much excitement, the Game Geek team has decided to put up a search for the first GameGeek ambassadress!
Held at the Vera Studios, an indoor and outdoor studio in the heart of Intramuros, Manila, we did a gaming-themed and costrip photoshoot with our cosplayer auditionees.
One of our staff, Kristine (also a cosplayer), joined the auditionees in their themed shoots. Oh, they were a sight for sore eyes!
Here are the amazing girls in their GameGeek shirts!

Characters cosplayed: I’ve been a cosplayer for 6 years so I cosplayed a LOT. XD ranging from anime characters to game characters. 🙂
What makes you GameGeek: saying that I’m a gamer is cliche, but there’s more to that in terms of being a “GameGeek”. Like the staff,I am GameGeek because I can connect with fellow gamers and be someone that can inspire, motivate, turn your gaming-related passion to actual “fuel” that can rev up your everyday life, and be someone to play online games with.~ Drop the formalities or thoughts that we’re people beyond your reach, we, GameGeek,are here to serve you with all the gaming-related things we can find! ♥

What makes you GameGeek:
Gaming is not just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. I’m a GameGeek because I love playing games and having fun with friends. I’m also a GameGeek because I express myself through games – they allow me to think and strategize while falling in love with the characters (and going as far as to cosplay some of them). I’ve been gaming as early as highschool and it has become a part of me ever since.

Name: Kristel Van Cuarentas (aka Kitz Cua)
Games you play: I’ve played a variety of games, from consoles to handhelds to PC. Now, I mostly play MOBA games, League of Legends to be specific. I also play HotS and a bit of Dota 2.
Characters cosplayed: Since I am a big fan of League, most of my cosplays are LoL champions. I’ve cosplayed as Classic and Headhunter Caitlyn, Genderbend Tryndamere, Star Guardian and Elementalist Lux, Classic Annie, Generation Ahri (not an official skin), Red Card Katarina, and Leopard Nidalee. I’ve also done Dota 2 heores such as Lina and Dragon Knight.
What makes you GameGeek: I started playing video games when I was a kid. What used to be my hobby grew into something more as the years passed. When I first played League back in 2010, I instantly fell in love. I started cosplaying League champions and, from casual gaming, I also entered the competitive scene where I won tournaments with my team. Since then, I’ve made a name for myself in the gaming community. After two years of competing in tournaments, I went back to casual gaming and decided to collaborate with some friends to organize events and create content for the gaming community. Now, I stream my own games on Twitch and make content for my lovely supporters. Playing games is more than just a hobby for me now. It is inseparably woven into the fabric of my life story and that is what makes me a GameGeek.
