Here is our entry as Team Philippines 2021 for the World Cosplay Summit Video Championship!
It was our first time stepping into WCS so we weren’t expecting anything apart from doing our best to put on a good show for everyone, and representing our community. We were so surprised and grateful to win one of the major awards: the Brother Special Award for Best Costumes! It’s a title that holds a lot of weight, and considering that these were the first costumes we made completely on our own, it was so encouraging!
It was such an honor just to be the first to bring our beloved Naruto to the World Cosplay Summit stage. We had AMAZING comments from the judges and viewers. On top of that, we were able to make a historic first win for the Philippines and planted our flag on the list of awardees for the first time! 🇵🇭
I have so many emotions which I can’t fit into here right now. But we made this video as a tribute to Naruto and Jiraiya, how much we have learned and grown from looking up to them. We dedicate this to all the Naruto fans, and really, just for anyone out there who needs a little reminder when times are rough. ❤️
We love hearing from you guys, so please don’t be shy if you want to leave a comment and share how you felt! It really means a lot to us!
Congratulations to all our fellow representatives! It was truly an honor to compete alongside such a wonderful and talented group of people!
We wouldn’t have been able to do this without the incredible support of all our friends who offered us their time and hard work to pull this off! Another reason I am happy hearing when people enjoy our video is knowing that this is something we made together!
