Aug 20, 2009: Costumes
The Miss Universe Pageant has the usual evening gown parade and a swimsuit parade, but it also has the contestants parade in their "National Costume". How they came up with some of them, beats the hell out of me.

Racing costume for US?
So we have NASCAR, but the rest of the world pretty much laughs at the US because of our absence from F1. Interesting that they would pick racing at all...sure bet she loved wearing that helmet with those dom-heels. OK, so call me a critical bastage...

The Great Britain costume does look somewhat like the traditional "Brittania" character much used by political cartoonists from the late Victorian era.

I would much rather they paraded out of their costumes

The Aussie lass looks like she modelled herself on a Peach Melba.

What's Canada supposed to be?
DanaC Thursday Aug 20 08:53 AM
I'm quite surprised she didn't turn up in a Stars and Stripes bikini with a Big Gun :P

I thought the race motif would be from Monaco.

Ireland must be on a pretty tight budget. Hmm lets see...I have a hat left over from St. Pats, a bikini, and, well, I'll just use the flag. Tah Dah. Costume!

I can't wait to see what the Romulan contestant wore to the Miss Universe competition.

Looks like the other girls played a trick on Norway and Slovak Rep and didn't tell them what National Dress really means....

Bizarre, but I'm sure it's hard to come up with different "national dress" every year. If memory serves me right, we've had girls dress up as the statue of Liberty before.

This is what Miss Australia should be wearing
Shawnee123 Thursday Aug 20 11:45 AM

Miss Ireland's penis is showing
Shawnee123 Thursday Aug 20 04:38 PM
So is Miss USAs. You know, if you read Middlesex there's a theory about really tall thin women with no hips having been born hermaphrodites...
DanaC Thursday Aug 20 04:38 PM
Probably quite similar to the Japanese entry...

I'm sure there were many worthy comments in this thread, but I didn't have time to read them as I was busy worshipping Miss Ireland's public mound.

However Miss Australia might get my attention.
