  • Buwan ng Wika, being the first school activity of the year for most schools can send us parents panicking when looking for a costume. When your child's appointed ethnic costume can not be bought from department stores and having it customized isn't your option, check out these Filipino costume ideas put together from old clothes.
     
    If your choice at home is limited, I recommend the Segunda Mana Store by Caritas for second hand clothes. Having 5 stores around the Metro, you will surely find one you will like. Great finds can be had at local second hand clothing stalls in public markets for as little at P10 per piece, or P50 at second-hand clothing stores selling imported pieces. Remember to wash those thoroughly before putting your ensembles together. Featured here are additional costumes from last year's 9 DIY Costumes for Buwan ng Wika. View this gallery to know what to look for and how to put it together at a very minimal cost.
