  1. Natawa tuloy ako sa sarimanok vs ibong adarna!

    Paraing wais na pinay si Colis. Para hindi sya maiputan ng ibong adarna at maging taong Bato, nakapayong sya!

    Hahahaha.. Korni ko!

    This costume of Ann is just OKAY not extra ordinary. It is beautiful and the cut and fit is well made (very important ang fit kailangan maganda tignan at magmumukhang matangkad ang girl not the other way around).

    Honestly, I can see better costume made by other designers than this one but kudos still to the designer! Maayos ang pagkakagawa nya! Maganda ang Ibong Adarna umbrella pero nakukulangan ako sa design sa taas. or maybe iba sya tignan in person or in video?

  2. Suggestion lang since hindi ito ang original peg ng costume at just incase iremake again ang Zora Andam costume, wag na tunay na parasol gamitin para maiba naman.. IMO, mas artistic ang dating kung fake na Sarimanok lang on an intricately carved gold wooden cane from Pampanga (Ann’s province) ang hawak nya.. While the Sarimanok with a fish chained to its beak stretches its wings flat in front creating an iregullar shaped umbrella.. Somewhat how a bird of paradise would during their mating dance rituals which creates a recall of the headress worn during Singkil. And I preffered embroided depictions of Flora and Fauna all over the whole gown.

  3. Ok lng na wala yung parasol, overkilll na rin. Daming ibon, mukhang bird park na si Ann.

    Tapos parang dumapo lng yung isang adarna sa grade school umbrella.

  4. This one’s nice. Have you seen also the gown and natcos of angelia ong for miss earth? Those were bongga

  5. Start of beautiful things to come…at least for NatCos.

    And I hope the parasole gets in Canada or will be allowed to be brought in, in time for the presentation..

  6. Better than Bazurra’s. I like that it’s hand painted. Okay din ang fit kay Ann. Hindi mukhang maluwag, masikip or maiiksi. Mas gusto ko na ito kumpara sa mga costumes sa baul na 50 years old na pero ginagamit pa din, tapos meron na naman tayo makikita na kumakalat online “Who wore it better?”. Nakaka- pagod at sawa na tayo sa ganyang issue. At least alam natin na itong costume ginawa for Ann at sa wakas binigyan ng importansya ang Binibini natin.

    Kung yung umbrella ang problem para makita ang full effect, dami naman shops sa Toronto especially sa downtown na pwede makahanap ng something similar. Punta kayo sa Yorkville or Annex, Kensington, Queen, Chinatown or kahit sa Eaton Centre dami dun stores.

    Good luck Ann!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Yan ang costume! Hindi tulad ng punyetang costume ni Mary Jacko.

    Tutal, muka namang cake ang kay Jacko, pastillas naman ang ipasuot kay Piyaya Washback!

    • A friend sent this photo to me so di ko alam kung kanino ko i cre credit. Di daw sya sure if pang official photoshoot or eto na isusuot ni Ann. Puro pasabog tong si Ann lately. Na excite tuloy ako for Janicel kahit MIA sya palagi. Lalo na kay Pia kung ganito prep for Ann na madalian nga ano pa kay Pia na ang tagal.

      • I’m happy for this batch na maraming bagong designs at magaganda pa. I remember yung ginawa nila kay Yvethe na puro recycled ang pinagamit sa kanya sa Poland. hayss…

  8. Very flamboyant and I love it. Ann wears it beautifully ๐Ÿ™‚
    Kudos to the Pinoy designer ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Fake na bird naman yun, sana maibalik kay ann yung ibong adarna, yun ang swerte niya. anyway may nabasa ko baka asian daw manalo, check ko yung iba disyaske Ikaw na ann colis!

      • Mas maganda yung handpainted? Hindi nga? Yung totoo. Kung artistic value maganda execution ni bazura dito.

      • Bakit bitter yung Iba. Ipagsiksikan ba naman yung kanya eh mukha namang Maria clarang buntis.

    • Nagagandahan ako sa dalawa. Mas may wow factor lang sakin yung birdie kase bet na bet ko talaga ibong adarna. Ang unique lang.

      • Ako i love the idea na finally pinoy ang gumawa. Parang hindi ngalang akma ang pagkapares ng mga colors ng buong damit. Nagmumukhang minadali and for the lack of a better word cheap. Buti nalang talaga maganda si Ann.

      • @Laila we have same observation, both are great. I also preferred the legendary Ibong Adarna as to the Parasol mas malinaw ang malaking ibon na dumapo sa payong ni Ann kaysa kay 2002 na parang maliit na ibon lang (ibon din ba yung naka attach sa payong) not only that the colors of the feathers are really vibrant. Enhanced ang natcos ni Ann with a touch of mythical taste . I believe kanya-kanya talaga ang taste natin when it comes to this Natcos although they have almost the same concept. One good thing about this is Pinoy talaga ang gumawa.

      • @scorchingangel super true. Gets ko rin naman na dahil sa grainy yung photos medyo arts and crafts yung dating PERO I would rather na palpak na gawang Pinoy kesa sa PALPAK na gawang banyaga na malagyan lang ng feathers, voluminous skirt at butterfly sleeves Filipino na. Having said this…the natcos is good enough for a minor pageant. Important ang gown at kung lagapak man yun pinaka important si Ann na in agreement naman tayo lahat na kakayanin ilaban Pilipinas.

      • @Laila, I betr you have seen the photos of other candidates in this particular pageant, all I can say is that Ann is slaying this competition. Bakit di masyado magaganda mga contestants nila. Naku kung matalo si Ann ay alam na talaga. Ang ganda nya talaga for this pageant. But in fairness talaga sa crown, nakapaka elegant at classy ang dating. mas maganda pa sa crown ng BBP at Miss Intercontinental.

  10. I love that the designer had an inspiration based on our history and culture..

    So the print on the skirt is an Ibong Adarna while the parasol has a Sarimanok on it?

    I think the body of the Sarimanok could have been more artisticaly shaped or gracefully formed. I’m also a bothered by the huge randomly located empty white gaps on the skirt but overall it looked well executed. I love the colors and the tiny details.

    Definitely a headturner on the presentation. I can’t wait! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Just realized that I should’nt be complaining… This is way better than any of the fugly Barraza costumes… I’m just nitpicking because our win in best national costume is long overdue. ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats Ann! Wear it proudly! ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Perhaps customs thinks the parasol is a real bird. Hindi bi yung headpiece ni Carrie Bradshaw for her Vivienne Westwood wedding dress real bird pala?

    It’s the price for high fashion. Ann will work it out no matter what.

    Glad her beauty wasn’t wasted at Dairy Queen appearances alone. Go Ann!

  12. Ang ganda ganda grabe, I’m really overwhelmed, ang sarap sa pakiramdam na makikita yan ng mga manunuod don and mapapa-wow sila sa national costume I just know mapapa-wow sila, I mean who wouldn’t?

    • Canadian customs need to verify that the “bird” on top of the parasol isn’t REAL. Yes, I know it sounds ridiculous, but Canada has very strict regulations about bringing livestock into their country dead or alive. I’m hoping Anne gets her parasol back!

      • I super understand where they are coming from but I can’t help but get a bit pissed after the stunt they pulled with their toxic waste in our country. On the bright side…baka naka quarantina lang hehe

    • @AlexKe si MJ nag comment sa IG ewan kung kanino kay Ann ata saying na maganda. Nag reply si Cheetah Rivera kay MJ saying something like, it was her who paved the way bakit naging posible yang costume ni Ann. Totoo talaga. Sakripisyo lahat to ni MJ. She’s so classy na until now kahit grabe yung ridicule sa kanya, nanahimik lang sya.

      • @Laila…yung costume talaga ni MJ ang unang pumasok sa isip ko nung nakita ko costume ni Ann. Sigh sigh sigh

        Anyway buti na lang nag improved na. Kahit pa sabihing walang points ang national costume, personally nakakaproud sa pakiramdam pag maganda ang costume ng Binibing Pilipinas.

        By the way…sana ibalik yung title na Binibining Pilipinas – Universe….or kahit Binibining Pilipinas na lang sa top winner. Ang dami na kasi titles sa BBP. Sana ganito na lang.

        Binibining Pilipinas
        Bb. Pilipinas – International
        Bb. Pilipinas – Intercontinental
        Bb. Pilipinas – Suprantional
        Bb. Pilipinas – Tourism
        Bb. Pilipinas – Grand International
        Bb. Pilipinas – Globe

      • Mas gusto ko rin yung

        Bb. Universe Pilipinas
        Bb. International Pilipinas
        Bb. Intercontinental Pilipinas
        Bb. Supranational Pilipinas
        Bb. Grand International Pilipinas
        Bb. Tourism Pilipinas
        Bb. Globe Pilipinas

      • Curious lang po ako, mas malki ba na pageant ang Miss Grand International keysa Miss Globe?

  13. Bet ko talaga ang payong, iba kasi ang epek nito sayang at di na nya magamit takot ata sa bird flu taga dun(chos) but the skirt is so nice, love it. I saw the alternate of the mahiwagang payong, pamaypay na white nalang, ok din naman nagcompliment din sa terno nya. Good luck Ann! Ganda mo talaga!

  14. Although the parasol could have completed the look, policy ng Canada yun wala tayong magagawa. Pero Ok na rin for me kase ang striking na rin naman ng skirt part. I am just happy that this is Philippine made at milya milya ang improvement sa ginawa ni Barraza kay MJ. Have you guys seen yung mga kasabayan ni Ann nung arrival nya? Ang shushuba parang bagong panganak lang. Try ko maghanap ng photo ha.
