RoLe PLaying

Warning: PICSPAM

Surprise! A Miss Universe NationaL Costume post before the crowning! Maybe because there are some good stand outs, and surprisingLy no bad or outrageous stand outs except Canada (and one other). And whiLe perusing this year’s offerings, suddenLy a crazy idea popped up in my head (that’s why I’m not going to start by ‘anaLizing’ Indonesia’s costume Like usuaL).

IF MISS UNIVERSE WAS A ROLE PLAYING GAME, THERE WOULD BE:

1. QUEENS

Spain >> finaLLy a non-fLamenco one. I beLieve this is inspired by Queen IsabeLLa?

Russia >> this Looks terribLy simiLar with 2013 costume. Come on, Russia, be creative for next year!

Egypt >> second favorite of the year

2. LADY WARRIORS

IreLand — She wouLd be the bad ass Lady Commander of The RoyaL Guard. She trained taLented young knights from around the worLd (because her cape reminds me of Seijuro Hiko’s cape in Rurouni Kenshin manga :p)

Japan >> throw back to 2006! But this one is more.. respectabLe and battLe ready.

Myanmar >> I LOVE THIS SO MUCH MY FAVORITE HANDS DOWN

3. HIGH PRIESTESSES / CULT LEADERS / PAGAN IDOLS

Dominican RepubLic >> I don’t know how CathoLics wouLd react to this, but I think this is pretty. And I Like how the Virgin Mary seamLessLy ‘merge’ into the dress.

Greece >> simpLy beautifuL

Kazakhstan >> in my imagination she wouLd be a viLLage virgin about to be sacrificed to the God of The CLouds to bring rain. Or to stop the rain.

ChiLe >> mission: HeLp Lady Rider to secure the border Lands where the unicorns (or pegasus) roam

South Africa >> Lose the beLt and you’LL get a gorgeous red carpet worthy gown.

Ziphozakhe Zokufa, Miss South Africa 2014

Ukraine >> I don’t know what’s up with the somber mood.. Maybe because the country is stiLL facing Looming threats from Russia? (And Look at Russia’s costume! Ironic much?)

7. THE SCORNED LOVER CURSED INTO STONE

2015 MU Indonesia 15717956284_cf08711c18_b.jpg (1024×681)

Indonesia >> I HATE THIS. This is waaaaay even worse than the Last two years, but somehow other peopLe seem to Love it, being one of the Fan Vote FinaLists.. I wouLd’nt even know it was representing Borobudur if I had not read about it somewhere. I stiLL stand by my opinion that those peopLe behind the Whatever Batik Fashion CarnivaL shouLd be fired. PLease give the job back to Anna Avantie, who brought Nadine C to won second pLace of Best NationaL Costume back in 2006, Losing onLy to Kurara Chibana’s samurai garb. And there are many ways to represent Borobudur without that ugLy 20kg headdress thing.
And yes, she is the FinaL Boss.
