Jed Madela also joined the fray dressed as Korean idol V or Kim Tae-hyung of BTS.

Madela hosted The World Championships of the Performing Arts (WCOPA ) Team Philippines Kumu stream where one of the major requirements was to be in costume. 
 
Character actor and director David Chua further flexed the trick-or-treat spirit by cosplaying his favorite character, Joker, with the Escolta district as backdrop.
 
Chua completed the menacing and colorful look of Batman’s nemesis with Escolta looking like a haunting Gotham City of sorts. His team also shot at Jones Bridge.
