I attended my first Cosplay last night with my Dubai choir, CVC.
When this was announced weeks before, everybody’s reaction was: Kailangan pa bang ganun? Wala kaming costume.
Last night’s usual reaction was: Ang saya! Dapat laging ganito.
I arrived as The Joker. Other characters that joined in were Catwoman, Darna, Neo (Mr. Anderson), the Scream killer, Freddie Krueger, April Boy Regino, Faye, Ina Magenta, Star Brite and Darna among others.
As we are being imaginative while already being in costume, people are thinking outside the box and asked, whether I was McDonald or Kuya Germs.
Kathy donned a Pocahontas costume (or was it Tiger Lily?) but everybody was screaming: ULA! ULA! ANG BATANG GUBAT!
Tina was Star Brite (an old cartoon from yesteryears) but some screamed: Jolina the Early Years.
Kuya Rolly was “Mr. Bean” but we assumed he was just Gus Abelgas. Liza said she’s Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s but we thought she could also be an Imelda Marcos. When a plate accidentally broke off and pierced thru her skin during dinner, we all said, “Assassination attempt kay Imelda!”
Atong donned the Scream Mask from the Scream Film series. He keeps forgetting that he is wearing a mask! Everytime there’s a photo op, I had to remind him, “Huwag kang mag-smile! Di kita yan sa picture.”
