Ateneo Blue Knights Come to Life!

Who needs weird Japanese anime / video game cosplay when you you've got some super-cool school symbols to choose from?

I was pleasantly surprised to see these two Blue Knights in battle armor taking part in the Ateneo de Davao contingent for the Kadayawan Floral Parade. The armor was pretty well-made -- molded plastic, I believe -- and the paint job wasn't bad either. To round out the costumes, they both had the Ateneo seal for shields as well as the sword and banner.

Gotta tip my hat to this pair. It was a sweltering 30 C, and they must have been sweating buckets in the armor. But they managed to finish the 3-kilometer walk from Roxas Boulevard to San Pedro Street. Now that's dedication!

Go, Blue Knights!
