Here's some good news: For her national costume, Miss Universe Japan Yuumi Kato will dress up as one of our favorite childhood anime characters! Although the official costume competition won't be until next month, Yuumi has already posted photos of her wearing an adorable Sailor Moon outfit on Instagram:
Yuumi, an actress and model, was born in Nagoya, Japan and speaks four languages (Japanese, Chinese, English, and Malay). An Instagram page dedicated to beauty pageant competitions also posted a video of her in costume. In it, we see Yuumi wearing what looks like a ninja outfit that transforms into the iconic Sailor Moon uniform!
By the way, here's Yuumi when she's not in costume:
The Miss Universe National Costume competition will be held on December 10 in Bangkok, Thailand, while the coronation night will be on December 17.
