LOOK: Miss Philippines Earth Roxanne Baeyens dons ‘Mobile Legends’ costume
Miss Philippines Earth 2020 Roxanne Allison Baeyens wowed fans as she donned a costume – or armor – inspired by one of the champions of the hit MOBA game “Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.”
The beauty queen showed off her angelic looks as Rafaela and also expressed admiration for the character via Instagram on Nov. 3.
“My designer’s inspiration is Rafaela (healing for everyone). Although I have never played Mobile Legends before, reading a lot about her made me see why people [have] grown so fond of her,” she said.
Baeyens went on to quote the description for Rafaela in the game, which read, “She is sent by heaven to alleviate the suffering in the world, Rafaela descends on the Land of Dawn to heal all pain and punish all evil with the holy light.”
“Amidst this pandemic, we all need someone like her. To heal us not only from [COVID-19] but also from detrimental effects to our environment,” the beauty queen noted.
Baeyens can be seen wearing the golden brown and white armor while wielding a staff as she struck several poses against nature-inspired backgrounds.
