Bug off!

This will be my last post about Entablado's production of "Ang Unang Baboy sa Langit" (The First Pig in Heaven), I promise. The coolest costumes in the musical belonged to the villains, but of course. What creatures thrive in dirt and dust? According to the playwright, it's mosquitoes, cockroaches and spiders. I agree that mosquitoes and cockroaches are almost villainous, but I don't agree that spiders are in the same category. Some of my best friends are spiders because they feed on pesky bugs. I can live with the webs.

You're right, these costumes are the coolest! I love their makeup too. I don't mind spiders as long as they don't touch me, probably because a brown one bit me on my foot when I was little! Thank you for your kind comments on my blog Hilda!

It is true about the villains. In our movies and books and plays they are often the most interesting, get the best costumes, have the best lines...but then again, everything plays off of them...so...

This is a very dramatic photo - you captured the expressions perfectly.

I think most insects are useful in some way and they're OK as long as there are not too many of them, they don't carry germs and don't sting us...

I like your "series" about the pig play, very interesting. And I love spiders. My whole family adores spiders. My little daughter is totally fascinated by them and her favourite book/film is Charlotte's Web. Ciao. A.

I agree, these are the coolest costumes. Great series.

The costumes and their make-ups are works of true artists...It must have been a grand play. I also liked the nativity scene below. Salamat!

I just want to say that I have enjoyed all of your postings about The First Pig in Heaven. The costumes are delightful. Please share other plays with us.

It's not fair the bad guys should look the coolest! I agree with you about the spiders.
