VIRAL Netizens Want This Amazing Sinulog Costume for PH’s Miss Universe Bet

This is how costumes should be! Netizens are in agreement that the Sinulog costume of Isabel Luche, who is vying for the Sinulog Festival Queen 2018, is fantastic. Now, some have suggested that it is what our next Miss Universe bet should wear, or something similar to it.

Posted on social media, the costume of Isabel Luche, representing the municipality of Daanbantayan in Cebu, has been receiving a lot of raves. With rice fields, native huts, and coconut trees part of the gown, it reflects the culture and life of the people of Daanbantayan – exactly how a costume should be done.

With regards to Miss Universe and other international pageants for that matter, I understand some netizens’ frustration with the Philippine costume. Year after year, what we see are ternos and Maria Claras. We should start being more creative like other countries and use costumes like this one from Daanbantayan.
