Mrs World Malaysia 2023 to showcase largest wau costume at Las Vegas

KLANG: Mrs Malaysia World 2023, P. Vanishaantini, will be wearing the largest wau (kite) costume to compete for the Best National Costume title at the Mrs World 2023 pageant at Las Vegas in the United States.

Measuring at 3.8m high and 4.8m wide, the costume - designed by Saran Anak Lagong - has made it into the Malaysia Book of Records as the "largest wau costume" today (Dec 30).

Vanishaantini, 27, said she hoped to raise the country’s name through her participation in the international competition next month by showcasing the uniqueness and finesse of local craftsmanship.

"I am proud to represent Malaysia at the international level with this costume as I want to showcase something unique and unprecedented," she told reporters, Bernama reported.

She said she took on the challenge of wearing the costume, which weighs about 10kg, by preparing herself mentally and physically.

"I have been consistently practising for the catwalk since March, taking care of my health while also looking after my business and engaging in social work. I hope I can give my best at the competition," she said.
