Last year, Miss Japan Momoko Abe won the Best in National Costume competition for her costume that converts from a samurai garb into a kimono in a blink of an eye.

Besides that of Miss Japan 2018, Pageant Critics also posted the alleged national costume of Miss Universe Vietnam, inspired by the Vietnamese delicacy, Banh Mi. 

The National Costume competition will be held on December 10 in Bangkok, Thailand, while the coronation night will be on December 17, 8 a.m. (Philippine time). — Deni Bernardo
