Even this is against my will, it's too early for Alodia to have her own Wikipedia article. Let's seperate the fact and a fanboy's pont of view. I'm not sure if Charis Pempengco has an article here, her notability is established. I've known Alodia for the past 6 years, she is my online friend most of the time. She's popular to all video game, anime and cosplay (WHO ARE ONLINE) fans here in Manila, but if you ask a jeepney driver, a sweet potato farmer boy in the provinces, traffic enforcer, a gamer in a small internet cafe of course THEY DON'T KNOW HER in short most of the POOR masses (especially in the provinces) don't know anything about her. If you visit Germany, Australia and some parts of USA maybe people from DeviantArt and Multiply would respond. She doesn't even have her own TV commercial (I'm waiting for something like that). You can mention her in Madmad fun or Net Idol(which I did) but her very own article is a no no. What I wrote about her here few moons ago was just for fun get used to it and maybe this one too ;)

Please read WP:BIO to know the basic guidelines.

Although she is somehow popular that doesn't mean she's qualified for a Wikipedia article. Here are some possible scenarios that could be considered notable.

  • WP:BIO states that the person should be notable more than once or at least achieve critical praise.
  • Her appearance in Pedicab MTV is just the beginning, if someone from TV/Media company/Hollywood notices her then make her a TV/Movie personality like a host of a regular show like what happened to Nikki Gil, Nikki started in a Coca Commercial then ABS-CBN discovered her and made her a part of Star Magic. If she accepts Maxim offer to pose only once it doens't even count. If Wikipedia works that way why not we list all the models of Levi's, Maxim or any music videos.
  • Here in the Philippines, You can only watch Animax and Hero TV if you are subscribed to Sky Cable, and it's not cheap only a few people can afford it. In the provinces they don't care if there is no Animax as long as they have cable and there are so many alternatives besides Sky Cable. By means of demographics her popularity is unknown.
  • In relation with the above statement, Kawaii Girls is like any other contest. Example RR Enriquez of Wowowee is a 2nd-runner up of a prestigious nationwide local beauty contest, her repeated exposure on TV made her notable more than once but she doesn't have any article yet.
  • Some Japanese media acknowledges her. The Japanese model (I forgot her name) of Yuna of Final Fantasy X and X-2 doesn't have an article because afaik she's not notable enough. Alodia didn't attend any international cosplay or event like her counterpart Francesca_Dani. Alodia should endorse a product in Japan and then those japanese teens should go crazy on her.
  • Alodia's popularity is not a nationwide phenomenon like Kim Chiu or Sandara Park, she doesn't reach the mainstream level or compared to Charis Pempengco and Happy Slip who became famous because of Youtube. Kamuixtv (talk) 17:26, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Notable, but barely. Hm, IMHO, she's notable within her own field (which is to say, recognition as a leading figure within the Philippine Cosplay community rather than national recognition per se) but keep this a stub for now. Ms. Gosengfiao is familiar to me even though I'm not a cosplayer and I don't live in Manila. Somehow that smells of "notable" to me. -- Alternativity (talk) 12:48, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

This article didn't pass the Wikipedia Biography guidelines if only she achieve critical praise like Francesca Dani, even though she won in the Animax Kawaii Girls event. Kamuixtv (talk) 10:01, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm willing to give my fellow editors a shot at making it semi-passable, but the first attempt to even get it to Wikipedia standards already had numerous violations of Wikipedia:Citing Sources. People know her, it's just that like FranDan, her infamy is limited in scope to a certain area of the world. By that logic, any foreign TV/Movie/Singers/Bands/other Media Personalities would be under the gun. Just because they aren't know in the USA doesn't mean they aren't notable. I'm gonna give it a couple more weeks before drastic action need to be taken. (talk) 18:54, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Right two months of inactivity, and I've gutted the article and utilized the references provided in one of the AfD's. It's not much, but at least it's passable. But it still has problems. (talk) 01:10, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

2011 UPDATE - It's been a while since the last update here huh.Well,I'm pretty sure you already know where's Alodia right now. Starting from the hundreds of thousands followers in Facebook that gave her a hundred million views,her appearance to the mainstream Philippine Television as a Host for a Prank show,left and right endorsements from big shot companies and her participation in international and local cosplay conventions as a judge.Well i guess you can now that say she really deserve a wikipedia article.Notable enough right? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shadowmoon9 (talkcontribs) 08:04, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Hahaha...that was 3 years, now why don't you start her article on Japanese Wikipedia. Kamuixtv (talk) 22:16, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from Shadowmoon9, 5 February 2011[edit]

I'm not sure if I'm in the right page(im still a noob here in wikipedia)

Well I'm about to contribute some info in Alodia Gosiengfiao's wiki page, but i learned that the Page is temporarily Protected so I cannot edit it.I hope you could change her info or add the info ill be posting below if possible.I just want to edit it because the current wiki article is somewhat old news already so I'm thinking if i could update it.

For the meantime i hope you can change it to this.

Okay,this is her Biography coming from her Official Facebook page

Born on March 9, 1988, Alodia Almira Arraiza Gosiengfiao, started cosplaying year 2003 at the age of 15 by joining various competitions in the Philippines specifically in Metro Manila. When she was 15, she wowed the crowds at the 2003 C3 Convention portraying as Magic Gunner Rikku from Final Fantasy along with her younger sister Ashley who cosplayed as Gunmage Yuna. The sisters' 3rd place & Crowd Favorite winnings led them to be featured on the cover of Issue 14 of Culture Crash, a manga magazine distributed locally and abroad.

While in college, she garnered the 1st Place award in Best Design during the Ateneo Siklab Fashion Design Week in September 2005. She also won 1st place in Digital Art Contest at the UGot Game X3M Xpo in 2007.

As a multi-awarded cosplayer, she is now being invited to grace conventions with her appearances or to judge competitions. She started judging at the age of 18.

As the official model/endorser of IPVG-EGames Zx Online game, Alodia, an avid gamer, was given the opportunity to hold her first Fans Day during the Domination 3 Event held on April 2009. Her stint with the company paved the way for her to be on the cover of the EGames 2009 Calendar. A Toy/Figurine distributor based in the Philippines, Maxicollector, has followed suit in hiring Alodia as a Model/Endorser for the said store. She also has been featured in several magazines such as Candy Mag, Meg Magazine and making it into the cover of two isues of GAME! Magazine; and newspapers like Phil.

Hello, Shadowmoon9. I'm afraid it's protected up to admin level at the moment so can't edit it for you either. Protection expires by February 28. In the meantime, I suggest finding more references to your additions above. Independent newspapers, magazines, news sites, etc. Some links that should help you:

--ObsidinSoul 13:31, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

But note that you can't simply copy material in from her Facebook page, even if you make slight modifications to the wording. Read Wikipedia:Copy-paste. JohnCD (talk) 17:58, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Not done:. I suggest you propose one section at a time, make sure it is written neutrally and not copied from anywhere. If there is agreement I can add it to the article. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:08, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Fanboy shrine already(?)[edit]

Good day to everyone. I can't help but agree - this article is losing its objectivity, thanks to the fanboys and their mobilizer / agitator Mike Abundo. It seems that even the fanboys know more about Alodia than Alodia herself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Diablocorvido (talkcontribs) 01:39, 17 March 2011 (UTC)


I find it ridiculous to even add and/or SPECIFY the names of the products Alodia endorsed. I sense a WP:NOT violation. Wikipedia is not a database of products to advertise. You can even check the Manny Pacquiao article for reference. Even there, Manny's endorsements are not specified to protect the article's neutral interest. Finally, I dont think the notability of the school/college ART contests that she won is necessary in this article. Those are not notable in the general public. Not very encyclopedic. WIKIPEDIA is not a resume †Bloodpack† 21:07, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
