In Australia we have a few national pastimes.
There’s cricket in the backyard. Sitting in a kiddies pool with a bevie on a hot day. Criticising the Miss Universe Australia national costume.
Now that most of us are back at work and unable to take pleasure in the first two, it’s time to check out the costume.
And here it is in all it’s glory…

Caris Tiivel’s Great Barrier Reef outfit was revealed on The Today Show and as was to be predicted – it’s already dividing people.
Our Miss Universe Australia costume is inspired by the Great Barrier Reef… and it just looks like a giant mound of leftover Xmas tinsel

Complete with tinsel fascinator and shoulder pad, there’s no doubting the lace creation is unique.
But does it scream Australia?
This Miss Universe Australia costume looks more post-xmas cat bum extrusion/toilet roll dolly and not at all like a coral reef.
