Original Davao cosplay!

Cosplay this, Manila boys and gals! This is about as original as it gets.

Seriously, now: on a lark, I decided to head over to the People's Park at 7am this morning. Good thing, too, as I caught high school students from Assumption College of Davao preparing for a native Mindanaoan dance.

I asked if I could take photos and they gamely said yes. I even videotaped their performance.

I decided to wait for their actual performance, which was being videotaped by some professional director. This video shoot was for their GJC, or Golden Jubilee Celebration.

My own video:

The dance itself is very simple, even repetitive, but there's a meditative quality about it, what with the colors and the beat of the kulintang.

Made my day.
