DIY Lapu-Lapu (Filipino Hero) Costume
Last Wednesday, my son’s school celebrated their KAPITAS festival. They asked the grade school students to wear any Filipino Heroes that they want to portray.
At first, we thought of Andres Bonifacio because he has a katipunero costume already, but my husband wanted to create something new.
We decided to let my son cosplay as Lapu-Lapu.
He also created a shield and sword from a 1/4 illustration board P13.00 each from National Bookstore and oil paints. Then I used my old ethnic dress for his “bahag”. Then he wore a cycling shorts inside so that he’ll feel comfortable.
This is him with his classmates.
