You know what I like, my fellow humans? I like girls with fit bodies wearing insane national outfits. That's right ladies and gents, it's time for the Miss Universe National costumes show! Now that show actually doesn't happen until Dec 6 2019, but in the meantime, I found out there's a contest called Miss Supranational that ALSO has national costumes so enjoy that while we wait a week:

My favorite so far is Miss Cameroon and her kooky bird dance.

Edit: The announcer's mic is terrible and half the time I can't hear what country she's saying, but you can see a list of the contestants here and they come out alphabetically by country, so you can figured out which country is walking by that.

There is also a preview video for Miss Universe costumes and it has some great entries, but for those that want to be surprised the day-of, I'll put it in spoilers:

Edit: Miss Universe 2019 costume show is here:

    Miss Supranational seems to have a larger percentage of contestants doing pretty dresses or depressed flags than Miss Universe. It's a newer competition, though. And there are a few standouts, like Miss India.

    Miss Supranational: Some of these ladies are trying to do silly dances and skits to make up for the fact that their costumes are dull. It doesn't work, but it does make me smile.

    Miss Supranational: Ok, Miss Trinidad and Tobago got the closest to surprising me. Kudos, that was a dramatic costume.

    Miss United States, you're a gorgeous lady, but that's the saddest sex eagle we've ever put out there, and let me remind you I've seen a LOT of sex eagles.

    Miss Supranational: Miss Vietnam is not up to the Bond Villain levels we've seen of her Miss Universe showings, but she still has one of the more interesting and intricate costumes.

    Miss Supranational: This contest has a few countries that I've never seen compete in the Miss Universe competition. One of those is Miss Wales. The first words out of my mouth when I saw this costume was, "Oh Wales, what did they do to you?"

    I've finished watching Miss Supranational's costumes show and what can I say? It wasn't that great. They have a ways to go before they have even begun to complete with Miss Universe's costumes. I look forward to the true madness that is to be on Dec. 6th.

    Proooooobably not, so here's an example from Miss Universe:

    Just a good ol' wholesome, all-American sex eagle.

    I apologize if, by saying "Sex eagle", it seems like I'm in any way diminishing that Miss Universe costume. I think that Miss Universe costume is great, full stop.

    I'm trying not to spoil myself too much on Miss Universe, but my phone news feed sent me an article revealing Miss USA's costume this year. And yep, it's a flavor of sex eagle (with sex liberty and justice on the side)

    JFC. Watching this opening. Nothing he said landed. Nothing.

    I'm getting the impression that when this thing is hosted in the USA, the producers don't give a shit about this part of the competition. At least so far I haven't seen them hire anyone competent to host it.

    Edit: At least the lady seems to be professional. The guy host just "joked" that he's a little drunk and I'm thinking that's him probably being honest.

    Edit: HOLY SHIT THEY'RE DOING RHYMING AGAIN, WHAT THE FUCK YOU DUMB SHITS.

    Maybe the comment panned because like dude, no. Your pants aren't even tight, they're just like, regular pants.

    Umm, did the Canada team tell them that, or did the dude come up with it. It definitely seems like someone doesn't quite realize at all what's going on, because we've had medical marijuana for like eighteen years

    Ok I guess I'm going to comment today, because I am an addict and this is my drug.

    First costume that stands out to me is Miss Argentina. The idea itself is not particularly interesting, but the craftsmanship is top tier. This is what separates this contest from Miss Supranational.

    xPOR4L1.png

    Also I was surprised at first because I thought she was wearing a thong when she turned around, which would be very racy for this contest. Then I realized she's just wearing nude-colored nickers.

    Edit: I'll be trying to post high quality images so you can see details, but Vanilla right now is squishing everything annoyingly. Just click to see the actual image I posted. Yes, it's within size limits for this board.

    Whoever made El Salvador's outfit kinda shat the bed in structural stability. It took her almost two full minutes to stumble down the runway and back, and she was desperately holding it up the entire time.

    A somewhat dubious folk tale relates to a daughter of an Indian chief who fell in love and was imprisoned in the cave as her paramour was not acceptable to her father. Her beloved one was imprisoned nearby, in Huliba Cave (Tunnel of Love), but both lovers managed to meet underground. Both reportedly died in the cave and their spirit vanished into heaven through the holes in the roof of the cave.
