Ever wish you could quit your job and travel the world doing what you love? I fantasized about it for years. My name is Lemuel Sison, aka Shaman; and after a near-death-induced epiphany, I realized that life was too short not to. Around the same time, I found myself freezing in line for a Halloween warehouse rave, where I bought my first pair of glow gloves from a sketchy van in the parking lot to keep warm. Little did I know the impact it would have on my life, changing its course forever.
My initial plan was to go to the Philippines and wow the locals with my light magic. Turns out I was a more than a little late to the party! There was already an established gloving scene in Manila, and some glovers had as much as 3 years of face melting experience.
As a testament to gloving’s progress in the Philippines, URBN Nightclub and Rave N’ Flow in Manila hosted the first ever major gloving competition in the Philippines and possibly the first tournament outside of North America.
