And that's how this weekend went down at the Southern States Expo. Fun, enjoyment, anticipation, and new friends.
Friday night was RWB competition I made the dress. You can see about it here.
Here's our little contestant on stage.
Not very many smiles. But she enjoyed it.
She was tied for queen. So a double take on the runway was full of hugs from the two.
In the end she got 1st runner up Friday nite for the RWB. Which is fine. It was a tough competition.
Wikipedia says an "expo" is an exhibition of a like industry or company, so this Southern States Exp consisted of 5 pageants in 1 with 5 sets of judges and 5 times the titles for Saturday morning casual wear competition.
A bright, cute, and with a little bling tunic and capris was her outfit for the morning. And matching bow and sandals. .
Still no real pretty smile.
With ten other one year olds she did her best. No crown today but a lot of gifts from each of the 5 pageants. She placed as two 1st runner ups, two 2nd runner ups, and one third runner up.
