moriones festival - ethnic and recycled

it was a great surprise when we saw some Morions wearing ethnic and recycled materials. a special category which encouraged the locals to use what was abundant in the province.creativity was emphasized so much on these category as each Morion required the use of plastics as the main component for the costume.they wanted to encourage the people to be both resourceful and creative in the goal to gain awareness in the environment's call to reuse what seems to be useless materials.while some where made of recycled materials, another category was also considered. this was the one which requires the use of coconut palms, chicken feathers and other materials abundant in the province.some of the head covers even have small moving wheels on top with flower-like decorations. in this category, the participants were given every chance to show off what they can imagine.it was mixing the local culture with what has been traditionally designed after the Roman soldiers by retaining the fierce facial expressions.it was impressive to see how creative Marinduquenos are. how creative we Filipinos are.happy labor day everyone!

Reena said...

wala bang ovaltine costume? i like ovaltine...

do they belong to a different set of category in judging? they are very creative but the costumes from your previous post still looked better.

i hope they don't just throw the costumes away after the parade or it will just defeat the purpose.

Lalaine said...

Hey Happy Labour Day Dong and what a celebration. I'm intrigued and fascinated by the colours & costumes - absolutely stunning.

Will the kids get frighten by the look of it?

Pacey said...

Practically, I definitely love the recycled ones than being so expensive, great shots as always. I still saw some of the stands with the recycled ones, some were even using the tarps of the Reyeses. Hahahah...

Lawstude said...

this is cool. naki-join na rin ang moriones sa environmental concerns. dapat gayahin yan ng iba pang festival. makulay na makulay ang fesival dom.

luna miranda said...

Great and colorful photos, Dong. At nakaka-impress dahil recycled ang gamit ng iba. :)

Now these I approve of completely! It's amazing what people can do with natural and recycled materials when they set their creative minds to it. Fantastic!

Sonia said...

Your pictures of the Moriones festival were very cool..i especially liked the recycled materials section...very creative pieces there. wow. The Masskara is starting to seem pale in comparison to these full-body artwork. Although, to be fair, they're based on different themes.

Way cool.
