As iWant ASAP celebrated Halloween, the hosts of the show couldn’t help but talk about the first ever #StarMagicHalloween party that happened last October 20 at the Marriott Hotel Grand Ballroom, Resorts World Manila. Robi Domingo, Donny Pangilinan and Edward Barber looked back on the freaky-fun event, where all of them partied all night with each other.
Raising the Star Magic: Black Magic 2019 topic, Robi congratulated the MayWard tandem on stage. Channeling the inner Saitama and Genos in them, Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber gained recognition of having the Most Creative Costume during Star Magic’s #BlackMagic2019 Halloween ball. With that, Edward shared the story behind his and Maymay’s preparations for their fantastic look, revealing that it took hours for the two of them to achieve that get-up.

“Para sa’kin, siguro two hours, just over two hours. Si Maymay, siguro mga three dahil may bald cap siya do’n,” says Edward. He also shared that his first choice was to appear as Batman, while Maymay first thought of coming as Catwoman. However, “four days before the event”, the pair decided to dress up as their anime favorites in the Manga titled One-Punch Man.
After Edward, Donny also shared one hilarious fact behind his Doctor Strange look at the Star Magic: Black Magic 2019. While containing his laughs at his cute silly story, he shared: “I went to a last minute costume place. Tapos sabi ko: “Ano po ‘yong meron?” Sabi nila, “Doctor Strange”. [Sabi ko,] “’O sige, Doctor Strange na lang,’ gano’n ginawa ko.”
Aside from that, Donny also shared about how he and Jameson Blake were all surprised by having an unplanned “twinning” get-ups for the second time this year. According to him, he and Jameson already had the same suit in the #ABSCBNBall2019 and now, they both came as the Marvel superhero Doctor Strange in the #Star Magic Halloween party.
When it was Robi’s time to share some interesting facts about his costume at the #BlackMagic2019 Halloween party, he revealed that he also prepared for hours like the MayWard tandem, saying: “Sa totoo lang po, nagbihis po ako ng mga three hours din.” In the Star Magic Black Magic Halloween Party, he and his girlfriend Maiqui Pineda were dressed up as Rio and Tokyo respectively, who are characters from the Spanish crime series titled “Money Heist.”
