Day Two- Optional Competition
The second day of the 2013 Miss Plus America Pageant week kicked off with orientation and rehearsals for the opening dance number. I must admit, I was really looking forward to the opening dance routine. I absolutely love to dance! I’m not saying I’m the best dancer out there; I just simply love moving my body to the beat of the music. Click the link below to see a snippet of our opening dance routine.
After opening dance number rehearsal, it was time to prepare for the optional competitions! These competitions have no bearing on the overall winners of the pageant. However they are a great way for delegates to showcase their talent and get comfortable performing on stage! There are several categories of optional competitions; spoken word, talent, model portfolio, fashion runway and dramatic interpretation.
I’ll let you guess which two optional competitions I chose to compete in. Go ahead…take a guess! That’s right, Fashion Runway and Model Portfolio. Those of you that have been following me for awhile already know that I love to rock a runway! I won the Fashion Runway category in the Georgia Plus America Pageant back in April. Check out my winning look...Hounds-tooth Obi Belt and Black Cocktail Tutu Skirt by none other than Spoiled Diva by CL Felder!
behind the camera taking photos of my designs for the Spoiled Diva line, I discovered how much more fun being in front of camera can be! Following are a few of the shots I submitted for the national Model Portfolio competition.
Unfortunately for me, I didn’t win either of my optional categories but hey… it was loads of fun and I received an overwhelming amount of compliments.
