John “Sweet” Lapus shares how he came up with the idea of dressing up as Vice Ganda.
John “Sweet” Lapus transformed as Vice Ganda at Star Magic's Black Magic Halloween party on Sunday. According to the comedian, he was dressed by Vice Ganda himself.
“Siya mismo ang nagdamit sa akin. Sa kanya lahat to -- buhok niya to, tapos ito ang mga pinapauso niya ngayon sa 'Showtime' 'yung mga oversized clothes. Sabi ko, 'yung gusto ko 'yung Vice Ganda lang sa 'Showtime.' Everybody is familiar sa look niya sa 'Showtime' di ba?” Sweet shared.
When asked why he decided to don a Vice Ganda look for the party, he shared that the idea came to him when we was previewing the Metro Manila Film Festival movie The Mall, The Merrier. Sweet is one of the creative heads of Vice's MMFF entry, which will be shown this Christmas.
“The other day kasi, habang nag-preview ng MMFF movie, bigla ko siyang naisip. Sandali wala pa akong costume for Star Magic Halloween party, sabi ko, 'Vice, pwede makahiram ng oufit parang gusto ko maging Vice Ganda.' Ayan, head to foot care of Vice Ganda,” he stated.
