Hello Miss Gaia Nations 2012 contestants! I’ve decided to start the pageant earlier so you can relax on the next days (Christmas days). The first round is the National Costume round! You should dress your avi with a costume from your country and with items that represent it in some way. Remember to be very creative and to combine all items. You will need a TITLE and a DESCRIPTION for this round in which you will explain your national costume. Remember it’s a beauty pageant and your avi needs to look pretty, items that don’t belong to the theme will take points. The deadline for this round is January 8 so you have plenty of time to submit your entry. Please post in my profile your description when you are ready. Only 28 contestants will move on to the next round. Any doubts please tell me! Good luck!
Here’s an example of this round.
Title: Rainbow intersection… Where traditions and modernity meet
Hi! This is Miss South Africa! My costume highlights my country’s most important aspects! My clothes represent the different tribes of South Africa; we have more than 8 official languages since we are a very diverse country! My skirt has my nation’s flag colors; we call it the rainbow flag! My earrings are made of gold which are mined in South Africa and provide wealth and money to the country. My background is also a mine, since many other minerals are mined throughout South Africa some of them are diamonds, uranium, and silver. I have a leopard also in my avi, since we have many wild animals in the savannah such as lions, monkeys and obviously leopards! I hold a famous vuvuzela, an instrument that was used in the 2010 FIFA World Cup which was the most important event held in my country and symbolizes the development my country has shown in the last decades. Welcome to South Africa, the rainbow intersection where traditions and modernity meet! Thanks!
