Sometimes our most memorable moments aren’t exactly as pictured as how we expected it to look like. Like, literally.
Fresh graduate Ikay Portillo took it to her Facebook account how her leg appeared missing in the official class photo during their commencement exercises.
Hello Good Afternoon po! Magtatanong lang ako sa mga talented dito baka pwede niyo po edit yung isa kong paa? Kase…
The post’s rough translation:
Hello, good afternoon! I just wanted to reach out to the talented people here, maybe you can try editing my other foot? Because it disappeared during [class] picture taking. I called my school about this and they said they couldn’t do anything about it. Maybe someone can edit one more leg? The one that looks sexy and flawless!
WHEN IN MANILA has reached out to Portillo for further details.
“Uhm, nako. Umupo lang talaga ako tas I know na proper upo ko hindi nakalikod kase pinaayos pa nga nung photographer legs ko (tas mawawala lang pala), haha! I called the school, hindi na ako nag bother kase printed and distributed na yung photos, so the damage has been done (wow, HAHA!) Pero sabi sa comment baka daw di pumasa left leg ko kaya di nasama. May back subject pa ata. Haha!”
Rough translation: Umm, nako. I just sat there and I knew I was sitting properly. The photographer requested to “fix” my legs only to find out it would disappear, haha! I called the school, somehow. However I didn’t bother in the end because the photos have been printed and distributed, and the damage has been done (wow, HAHA!) But the comments on my thread said maybe my left leg didn’t qualify for the photo, that’s the reason why it wasn’t included. Maybe there was even a back subject. Haha!
Portillo then sent to us the best edits from users on Facebook that attempted to edit her leg.
Anyone craving for chicken or Octopus here?
Well, looks like she’s going to be the next Top Model!
Someone stepped on hot lava before class pictorial!
.. or wanted some double trouble.
Hmm, looks like she wants to get some boot-y!
LEGS, LEGS, LEGS!
We now know where her leg had gone.
Bottom line here, she still slays even with a disappeared leg!
