Kurara Chibana

At the conference today, discussion about Miss Japan winning runner-up at the Miss Universe contest came up. The joke was to have her be “SOFA Spokeswoman” for Okinawa (the discussion was about Okinawa’s difficult relationship with the US military).

Someone’s had some … augmentation surgery….

Japan Probe – Miss Japan gets 2nd place at Miss Universe

  1. Gen: never mind the pneumatic aspect of Ms. Chibana (Ms. Kurara?). I’d like you to comment on the authenticity of her “traditional costume,” including perhaps a history of Samurai fishnet-stocking armor pieces in feudal Japan.
    At least it wasn’t a boring costume, I guess.

  2. Oh, one more thing: I promise not to say anything bad about any other country’s national costume attempts. I believe that link indicates just how Miss Canada lost this competition.
    But to Miss USA, I can only say try harder.

  3. Ahh! I made a mistake in my last post. Here’s Miss USA’s actual, incredibly horrifying national costume.
    Advantage, Canada (though not by much).

    Ms. Japan had by FAR the best so-called “ethnic costume”. Miss USA was horrendous (who knew that we were a nation that preferred our women to be dressed up like jockies), but note that Miss France is dressed up more or less like a Moulin Rouge tart and Miss Sweden apparently is an actual milkmaid – not a naughty milkmaid, but a real, functioning, udder-massaging milkmaid.
    I think she should have gone with the naughty valkyrie approach favored by the Rumpleminz girl (bonus points for riding the polar bear), but that’s just me. It would have at least put her on part with the Japanese naughty samurai.

    I thought her English interview was very coached. I’ve actually worked with a few previous “Miss Japan Inernational” and “Miss Universe Japan” gals before on their responses to these questions. They usually memorize what they want to say, get nervous and mess it up big time. Chibana had no sense of articles or prepositions, which a fluent speaker would have. Kind of understandable, but it leaves me doubtful about Ms Chibana’s ‘Spanish’ and ‘Italian’ abilities.

  6. Mari says:

    Ken, do you consider yourself fluent in English? Whether Ms. Chibana’s speech was coached or not, she did not mess up… and you should give her credit for that. Besides, no native speaker will be talking about articles or prepositions… that’s too technical, and only none native speakers will be thinking about grammer skills. Also as a french speaker, her French was just fine… not perfect but anyone who understands French would understand what she was saying.

  7. Ya. I like the Miss Japan costume very much.
