Just curious has anyone in this group been in beauty pageants? If so, which ones?
How do you feel about beauty pageants?
<----- No pageant experience.
I have mixed feelings about pageants.
*Visit my Beauty Blog*
I've never been in adult pageants. But when I was little I was in them a lot. It was fun but also not so fun too, I remember. The moms were mean..my mom was a little mean about it too. I really wish she would have put me in something else other than pageants because I think it was kinda pointless being that young lol,
As an adult, I adore watching pageants but I don't think I'd be in one. I'd love to judge though!
I've never been in any pageants and I also have mixed feelings about them.
I'd never been in a pageant but was in just local area fashion show and photo shoot modeling from 13-15 and went to modeling school at 13.
I have 5 kids now young adults 2 boys and 3 girls. I have very negative feelings about pageants at least for children whether the kids enjoy them or not I dont think they are healthy in my humble opinion or at least have more negative risks than benefits in my opinion so I never put the kids in any.
All 3 girls are seriously drop dead gorgeous and could be models.. the 2 older girls now 20 and 23 have been stopped more than once by agencies or photographers asking them to model but I didnt even have to say no (which I would have until the girls turn 18) the girls told me they were flattered but that they dont want to model and still dont ... they told me its nice to be complimented for how they look but that they dont have pride in it bc they didnt earn it and that there are tons of girls who are just as special who were born just average or less than average looking and they didnt do anything to deserve that either and that they want their accomplishments and what they are known for to be about the beautiful human beings they are on the inside and making a positive difference in the world....
I am so proud of them and even though I was 5 ft 9 inches and only 115 lbs when I was in modeling my teacher had me stand in front of the class and told the other girls that is how they should be (underweight) and I ended up with decades of serious eating disorders from having been in modeling and body dysmorphic disorder also affected me. I didnt heal from that until I was 40...
I feel sorry for models and pageant girls bc they are constantly under a physical attributes microscope that I personally humbly feel is unhealthy.
No i have not. I think beauty pageants can be good and bad for different reasons. It is just not for me!!
I was in some Hooters pageants when I was a little younger... I'm not really proud of it now, and I wouldn't want my daughter to do pageants because looking back I don't think it's good for a girl or woman's self esteem to be compared to others solely based on the way they look.
