Star Wars Cebu: Monopods Turned Into Lightsabers During Sinulog

4

In a city not far far away, a grand festivity is celebrated in the streets of Cebu – the Sinulog Festival. Millions of people from all walks of life gather to dance and sing to the beat of the drums shouting Pit Senyor! In order to capture the special moments and colorful action, people have created a special weapon in a battle for that perfect selfie. It is called the lightsabers, I mean monopods! 😀

I bet anywhere you look during the street parade, someone is carrying a monopod or a selfie stick. Some people see it as innovative but others  also find it annoying. Inspired by the Star Wars Cebu float and characters who joined the parade, let’s turn those monopods into lightsabers for fun. Let’s use our imagination with a little help of Photoshop.

Check out these trivia about lightsaber colors as well! 🙂

Sinulog Star Wars Cebu Lightsaber
Blue: Justice and protection – used by Jedi Guardians who fight for the light side and skilled lightsaber warriors.
Bag Sinulog Star Wars Cebu Lightsaber
Purple: Moral ambiguity – Jedi who use both light and dark side techniques with an aggressive style.
Yellow Sinulog Star Wars Cebu Lightsaber
Yellow: Intrigue and pursuit – Jedi Sentinels who seek and destroy the dark side thru espionage.
Green Sinulog Star Wars Cebu Lightsaber
Green: Peace thru force, when necessary – Jedi Consulars who prefer negotiation and meditation to combat, but have strong force abilities.

Woaah looks great isn’t it? However I couldn’t imagine how bloody it would be if those were lightsabers. You better be well-trained to possess this weapon. And don’t forget to read the manual for the dos and don’ts. 🙂

Are you having fun? If you are a Star Wars fanatic then you’ll surely love the characters who joined the Sinulog parade. Star Wars Cebu brought an X-Wing fighter, few Stormtroopers, Jedis and new characters like Kylo Ren and Rey.

Kudos to Star Wars Cebu for a great job in bringing life to these characters. I’m pretty sure a lot of childhood fantasies were fulfilled. You can check out their Facebook page for updates on their events.
