I had a very busy schedule last two weeks ago, aside from the blogger events I attended to, my kids also had their respective school activities that were not to be missed. This made me activate my mommy multi-tasking mode again and so I was on the go and had to be there for my son Gabby for his first ever Cosplay event.
Cosplay which is coined from the words, ‘costume play’, is a kind of performance arts on stage where participants accessorize and wear costumes, and represent a certain character (mostly Anime or Japanese cartoon characters).
Take note, I didn’t urge him to join, I was just surprised when weeks before the show, he handed me a letter of consent form for me to sign. It was a pleasant surprise since he never showed any interest before in going on stage, and in the mall at that, and wearing a costume, too. My motherly instinct just took the best of me and supported him all the way. So here it is.
The show was entitled PAGSIBOL: A showcase of songs, dances and cosplay presentation by the students under the Special Program of the Arts (SPA) of Davao City National High School (DCNHS), presented at the Activity Center of NCCC Mall of Davao Activity Center last October 12. They were supervised by Ms. Jam Natividad, the DCNHS SPA Coordinator.
Here are some of the pics I took:
