On May 16 th, Andrea Meza from Chihuahua, was crowned Miss universe 2021. During the beauty pageant Andrea Meza dressed very proudly a beautiful Alebrije costume created by the designer of Oaxaca Avelino Roque Osorio.
Andrea Meza, representing Mexico in Miss Universe, showed to the world the Alebrije costume at the final of national costumes, designed by Avelino Roque from Tuxtepec. At this moment everyone was amazed because of the spectacular costume of Avelino.
However the model shared with us that the costume weighed 88 pounds and when she wore it she started to feel bad because she didn’t expect that the costume was so big but especially that it weighed so much. The costume has a headdress full of elements such as feathers, jewels and a lot of ornaments.
With all Andrea recovered from the situation and with all the rehearsals she gets to wear with elegance the beautiful Alebrije costume during the beauty pageant, it seems like that the costume didn’t weigh more than 10 pounds when she walks in the scenery.
The responsible of the masterpiece and who is among top 5 in worldwide is the mexican Avelina Roque Osorio, who is originary from the beautiful city of Tuxtepec, Oaxaca, the young designer with a wonderful talent. Osorio spent months handcrafting every detail of the Alebrije, a mystic character from dreams that turns real in Oaxaca thanks to Osorio.
This way the young Avelino Roque Osorio achieved to make real the dream of dressing our Miss Universe, Andrea Meza, with his artisanal work, the Alebrije costume. The Alebrije that he dreamed the same way as the Linares of Arrazola dreamed about, dreams that lead them to realize colorful, full of magic and metamorphosis, which gave Mexico a huge amount of fame. Today that fantasy is a reality.
Undoubtedly Avelino Roque Osorio is an example for mexican youth that is searching for true promises that will put Mexico at the gaze of the world.
