Please see Riyo´s message on her blog.
I could get my personal laptop to her today and she could write for you all. Everybody expect Japan to win, it is very exiting to be here.
The show ill be incredible this year, with a runway like the Victoria Secret fashion show in New York. The lighning is speactacular. Riyo will shine on the stage, she is very ready for tomorrow. Many delegates themselves are telling her that she is going to be the winner tomorrow!!
After seeing the delegates personally and on stage, talking to them, I made my choice as follow:
JAPAN – USA - VENEZUELA
KOREA – BRAZIL – SLOVENIA – SERBIA – ITALY - SPAIN – ANGOLA
I need to go meet with Riyo now also I shall write laster on.
NATIONAL COSTUME PRESENTATION
I just spoke with Riyo she said that they had only 30 seconds each to make their presentation. It was rainy and windy. The costumes were spectacular.
She saw many flags and banners with JAPAN on it and she heard loud cheering “Japon!!!!! Japon!!!”. There were no judging, just a presentation for the Mexican people to enjoy seing all the delegates in their national costume, it was a free event for all.
When she removed the sticks in her hair after bowing to the croad, Riyo gracefuly released her hair from the sticks and at that time she said that the wind blew her hair strongly, and that she thought that she was so lucky to get that special effect from the sky!!
When Riyo came back to the hotel, people were waiting with the Japanese flag, taking pictures of her and asking an autograph. She feels so happy to receive support, love and trust of many people around in a country so far away from home.
They will be a filming on the 15 on stage at the auditorium to film the opening fo the show with ecah delegate selfintroduction. Also this time Riyo will have to execute the full choreography to bring her costume alive.
I will be leaving tomorrow Tuesday for Mexico. Twenty four members of Riyo’s family and friends are going to Mexico to cheer for her on the final day!
Thank you for reading!
Love always, ines
The rehearsals just started today, from 10 in the morning untill 5 in the evening. Our walking teacher is full of energy and very beautiful indeed. She used to be a professional model worldwide.
At first, we did our walking lesson wearing a bathing suit. It was a first time for me to see everyone walk, they all looked amazing! I still remember how nervous i was when Jade and Ines taught us finalists how to walk for the first time.
After the swimsuit-walk, we practiced the evening dress walk. When it was my turn to walk, the music ended and I waited for it to come back.. when surprisingly it was the same song which came on the stage at the
miss universe japan final! I got so excited, I told our teacher. What a coincidence!! Thank all of you for your comments. One of them was about make-up and I thought about trying a different colored lipstick, maybe I am getting influenced by all the girls wearing so much make-up over here and I became one of them too lol
Definitely, being in a different place inspires me so much I love it! Okay I am off to the party to be held at the Hard rock cafe tonight! Will write soon!
