Miss Universe Contestants in 'national costumes' @ 07:36 pm

Slideshow!

Some are pretty elaborate and amazing. I did not realize (but should have suspected) that the national costume of Romania was the Dracula Cape.

I know pretty much nothing about Tanzania, but if their national costume is anything to go by, I think if I ever visit there I'll take a good camera, some body armor, and a high powered rifle.

Miss Chile with the miner's hat as part of her costume? That was interesting too.

How is there not a video game based on this in existence?

very interesting!
Props to Japan for keeping it real and not whoring it up.
I *loved* the Venezuelan dragon-lady, and the colors in Miss Jamaica's costume.

Some of them have absolutely NO flair. coughfinlandcough.

Miss Turks & Caicos' costume looks like it was hot-glued together by a 10-year-old.

Yeah, Turks and Caicos is a bit disappointing, but their whole population is 45,000 people. They probably had to import the glue gun, and there's not a Bedazzler in the whole country.
