Henshincon is the brainchild of Henshin Hero Philippines members Lorenzo Asentista Jr., Naz Escauriaga & Alexander Mondia and is the ultimate dream of JEFusion head honcho Daniel “GekiDan” Villodres.
It was their goal to unite all Filipino Tokusatsu fans and change the Japanese Pop Culture Convention scene here in the Philippines. Besides cosplay, the event was to focus on transforming heroes from the live-action and anime genre.
Henshincon is co-presented by MyPhone and Eri Curry. This event is powered by Artmedia Trading, Cosplay.ph, Great Toys Online, Henshin Hero Philippines, Nimoy: Cosplay and Props Shop. And its official media partners; Hero TV, WheninManila.com, Deremoe, Akadymac and Anime Pilipinas
Henshincon also supports People Empowerment for ARthritis and Lupus (PEARL) an organization that supports patients with chronic debilitating ARTHRITIS (rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis) and LUPUS or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) deserve to lead meaningful and productive lives despite their illness. The PEARL movement set up by Rheumatology Educational Trust Foundation (RETFI) aims to empower these patients and the people who care for them through various programs and activities. Part of the proceeds of the event will benefit the said organization.
