A new way of holding the Bb. Pilipinas National Costume
The Bb. Pilipinas National Costume, one of the exciting pre-pageant events, goes digital amid the new normal due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pageantry is also greatly affected by the health crisis. Several local and international pageants were postponed. Some already resumed but pageant organizers had to cope up with the new normal and so major changes were done for the coronation night.
Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated (BPCI) announced on Wednesday through its social media posts that the national pageant is using the technology to continue the pageant season.
“There’s more than meets the eye! (stars emoji) Here’s a sneak peek of the Binibinis in motion with their beautiful national costumesCheck out the Binibining Pilipinas natcos (national costumes) photos via our interactive augmented reality,” the post stated.
By scanning the QR code, the AR code will open and fans can focus the camera of their phone on the photo of the candidate that they like.
Based on the article in The Philippine Star, the photos will serve as a preview for the national costume competition.
“This serves as a preview of what the public would expect when the candidates showcase their unique outfits in the National Costume show happening before the grand coronation night,” the statement from BPCI announced.
The pageant organizer was apparently hinting that the competition will be conducted in a different way than what it used to be before.
“Get ready to relive the excitement as we get to know and crown our next set of beauty queens in a ‘new normal’ setting at the Binibining Pilipinas 2020/2021,” it said. The coronation night is set to be held on April 17.
