Some of the girl housemates commented nakakatakot, ang galing!; hirap mag-cosplay, gusto kong mag-cosplay” and dapat sexy ka! (if you want to cosplay) After performing a “catwalk” inside the house, the housemates were able to ask them questions on being a cosplayer.
Here are what they asked:
Jai: Kayo gumawa niyan?
Karen: Paano gumawa ng mga costumes? Kayo ba gumagawa?
Karen: Dapat detailed po talaga noh?
Leah: Ita-try niyo kasing sundan yung character, yung details, mas madetalye, mas maganda so as much as possible maraming detalye, maraming butingting, mga gems, mga ilaw-ilaw
Joj: Okay lang po kahit anong taong gulang . . . ?
Jia: Meron pa ngang batang maliliit na ganon tapos yung iba kahit matanda na, okay pa rin sila. Nakakapag-project pa rin sila sa cosplay
Leah: . . . Walang age ang tinitignan. Open ang cosplay for everyone.
Jia: As long as ieexpress mo talaga ang hilig mo sa anime, sa mga games, okay na okay yun.
Jaj: So adik na adik kayo sa anime (everyone laughs)
Leah: Hindi naman . . . kasi yung cosplay hindi naman siya limited sa anime lang eh, meron din . . pwede rin mga movies, or kahit mga tv series
Karen: Mga magkano nagagastos niyo sa paggagawa ng mga costumes
Leah: Depende pa rin
(Depende sa gagamitin mong materials)
Leah: Kasi kung magaling kang mag-recycle, tsaka kung gagamitin mo yung creativity mo, makakahanap ka ng paraan para yung mga gamit mo sa bahay or mga scraps na magagamit mo siyang part ng costume mo.
After the question and answer portion, they were called to the confession room and bid goodbye to the housemates. Kuya asked them what were first reaction with the housemates with one commented, “Hindi sila handa” pertaining to a male housemate who still wears boxer short. One also commented, “Akala nila statue o kartoon o picture ni Myrtle” while the one cosplayer said, “Nakakatuwa pero may halong kaba.”
In the end, Kuya thanked the cosplayers for visiting his house.
PBB Uber host Robi Domingo said:
Ngayon ko lang naappreciate yung pagko-cosplay kasi there is art and passion din naman sa pagko-cosplay. Hindi lang siya parang na gawain na . . .
Ms Bianca Gonzales also commented:
. . . kung yung ang ibang kabataan ay iniidolo kunwari ay sina Kim Chu, Tony Gonzaga, Anne Curtis (Bianca Gonzales) . . . eto naman iba yung pagexpress nila ng paghanga sa nagugustuhan nilang anime at characters.
