hi mommy leslie_santos!

my son wore that costume before also. mahirap nga maghanap ng ready made especially that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on it.

I just made a costume for him instead. I had him wore black pants, white long sleeve shirt and a black vest.  On the black vest, I sew in yellow gold rick-rack ribbon (the wavy ribbon that's widely available). Then I made a wide belt made of red satin fabric. You can also tie a black ribbon sa collar.

Here's a sample picture -

Mika was assigned to be Ms. Costa Rica in their UN Celebration. Would you girls know where I can get UN costumes? Meron bang Costa Rica in SM?

The costume is something like this:

i found one in SM, thank goodness. the mexico costume was exactly the skirt for costa rica din. yung top nalang ang problem ko kasi dapat white ruffled top na off-shoulder. eh the one they had with the mexico costume was colored and tiered like the skirt :p

problem ko din ito. Ms Egypt sana si Tifa but since I cannot find any costume, we decided na Ms Hawaii na lang.

try the malls or make your own nalang. if you can find a zorro outfit nga sa SM puwede na, then just modify it a bit. i was able to get a costa rica costume for my daughter in SM for 200 bucks! naka-sale kasi. actually, it's a mexico costume but it looks almost the same as costa rica, minus the top :) good luck hunting!

yung mga boys ko ayaw ng mga national costumes...i ask them kase if they like to wear the costumes in each pictures..ayaw nila halos lahat

ang nagustuhan lang nila yung pang shaolin and pang ninja - or any costume na may kasamang sword...so i end up in a knight and gladiator costume in toy kingdom megamall...french and roman nalang sila LOL

just bought my son costume for UN. He got BRUNEI as the country he would represent, I went all the way to ECHAGUE (now C. PLALANCA). It's really what they cater, that's why when I went there so many mommies hehe kakatuwa...

hello! united nations day rin sa school ng baby ko. and as always children are requested to come wearing ANY national costume and parents are required to bring a dish that is unique in a particular country.

i have a little boy and ang hirap maghanap ng costume for him. ayoko naman ng philippines as a costume eh.

help naman mga sis!
