Cosplaying is certainly one of the world’s biggest trends. Through the years, it has expanded its network from Asia all the way to Western nations. A lot of people simply find pleasure in dressing up as their favorite characters and showing their well-crafted costumes in public.
As of today, cosplaying is not only exclusive to cosplayer conventions anymore. In these times, numerous miscellaneous gatherings welcome cosplayers as well. One of these people who exemplifies this statement is none other than Larry Ronquillo.
For those who have never heard of this name before, Larry Ronquillo is a duathlete who is a regular in fun runs. But, what makes him stand out is the fact that whenever he takes part in these events, he always puts on a unique costume.
He started trending because of his “beggar costume” which is one of his most commonly used suits during these events. According to him, people have already started calling him “The Beggar Runner.” Event marshalls often stopped him multiple times before running due to his appearance but would later on, let him in after explaining the context behind it. Larry has certainly gained popularity as a lot of his co-runners stop to snap some photos with him.
According to him, he loves cosplaying but he also loves running just as much. Because of this, he decided to do both. Aside from the famous beggar costume, Larry also has a “The Mask” costume, a “Peter Pan” costume and a “Chinese” costume which he wore during a Chinese New Year fun run. He admits that making his costumes was, pricey, difficult, and took up a lot of his time. Despite this, he continues making them because he simply loved making people happy.
Aside from being admired for his costumes, a lot of people also look up to Larry because of the good health that he had at his age. Running simply made him into a more fit person. Whenever he is off duty from cosplaying and sports, Larry serves his community as one of its barangay kagawads.
