Pageant Talk

As a guest, spectator, and wardrobe manager, I attended Sunburst Tri-State Pageant in Gulfport.  Of course my main job was wardrobe manager, coordinator, fitting, and last minute outfit fixing. 

It was a full weekend of non-stop competing fun with 2 little ones in tow with 5 stage appearances with 5 outfit changes. 

Of course we, as the mom and mawmaw, were the most interested in it all, but the 2 little ones did extremely well being in the hustle and bustle of 121 other contestants. 

No personal cell or camera pictures were allowed in the ball room. So I only have quick snapshots of the fun. 

First, hotel room snack time with fruit loops in bed. 

There was time for an evening pool swim. 

There's always time for a selfie. 

The 5 areas of competion were swimsuit, casual wear/school/daycare wear, event t-shirt and blue jean shorts, lunch break, t-shirt and blue jean shorts again, and formal/beauty dress, all on Saturday, then awards day Sunday.

Brynlee's casual wear. (Made by me.)

Brooklyn's casual wear. (This was a purchased outfit, but I added the lace sleeve undershirt and changed out the color of the lace on the skirt. So half made/altered by me.)

Both in their event t-shirt and shorts. 

All t-shirts were too big for the little contestants. But they were meant for everyone to be dressed alike for meeting judges and interviews, with no scoring on attire. 

And then Brynlee in her formal dress at awards. And it's naptime, obviously.

And Brooklyn in her formal dress at awards time. 

The hit it good with a lot of awards.
