once upon a time this was what the warrior wear... the head gear is what makes you different from the other side... I am really happy that they are now garments for photo's now a days and a lot of locals are earning something from it.
this photos were taken from the park and the garments we rent it from someone at the park. the price is a bit pricey 10php/shot but the memory is long lasting it's not every time they are going to wear something like this anyway.
I actually went to the extent of thinking to make dk a costume out of this BUT when I went to the market to attempt to buy the cloth to use I was shocked by the price, I know that it might cost me more than the normal fabric but boy oh boy I did not expect it to be more than what I expect. One piece (one yard in length and 1/2 yard by with) will cost me 1800php (/40 in usd) I asked why its so pricey they told me that they are hand woven and they are the real deal. Well I really hope they are and if they are I understand the price. My grandmother use to wave this and it can take him 3 days to make one piece and that depends on the pattern.
bottom line is that dk have to be contented with something rented for now :) it will cost me around 100usd just to make him a complete set. I might as well better go home to ask some local who are still making this to earn a living, at least i know that it's real and I can get a discount.
