Kids' Beauty Pageants: What You'll Need to be Competitive

Author:

glitz pageants

If you read my article about entering your first beauty pageants, you know that I strongly suggest making a "trial run" or two before making the financial commitment to being a serious competitor in pageants. If your litte girl isn't "into" pageants, or if she's really shy or afraid on stage, don't waste your money - pageant supplies aren't cheap. If that's the case, you might want to stick to natural pageants for your trial runs, where you don't have to purchase so many expensive items.

If you want to be serious about winning glitz pageants, you have to make an investment - not only of money, but also of time. Below are the things you'll need:

Coach: Get a pageant or modeling coach. Your little girl will need to learn how to model and walk on stage. Even the very young girls will need to learn "cutesy" things to do on stage. Your coach can also help with advice on hair styles and dress and be an all-around great source for advice. Lessons typically cost around $100 per hour from a top coach.

Pageant hair: You'll need to purchase a wig, a wiglet, a fall, or a mini-fall. Get one made of real human hair. Your coach can offer suggestions on how best to "do" your child's hair. Find a color chart so that you can find out which hair shade your child will need. There are several internet sources that sell these. Sometimes you can find a used one on Ebay. Don't worry - your hair and makeup person will wash and set the wig or fall before your daughter wears it.

Dress: You'll need a gorgeous dress in a color that will enhance your child's natural beauty and coloring. If your DD (pageant lingo for darling daughter) is under the age of ten, she'll need a short dress with a full cupcake skirt and a lot of Swarovski stones. If she's over ten, she'll need a ball gown with a full skirt and Swarovski stones. The teen division starts at thirteen, and these girls usually wear a mermaid-style dress or either a ball gown with a skirt that's not so full. Your pageant coach can help you with selecting a dress. A good place to find used pageant dresses for sale is Ebay or on one of the voy pageant boards. If you want a new dress made especially for your DD, your coach can point you to a winning dressmaker. These dresses aren't cheap. A used competitive dress for a child will cost from about $500 to over $1,000. A new custom-made dress, of course, is usually significantly more. If you're not ready to purchase a dress, you can rent a good one for around $75 to $150 per pageant. Note: You might also purchase a cheaper dress online or from a shop and do the stoning yourself. Read my article about stoning.

Dress tips: Very few little girls can pull off wearing red, or any dark color, for that matter. Some pageants don't like to see 10-12 girls in strapless dresses. Even if you purchase a dress without straps, a pageant seamstress can add halter straps to match the dress. Your pageant coach can help you with color and style selection.

Flipper: Your DD will need a flipper - a mouthpiece that fits over her top teeth to give her the appeanance of perfectly straight, dazzling white teeth. You can find them online, or you can ask your pageant coach about where to find one from a reputable source. A flipper costs about $250-$300.

Shoes: Little girls in short dresses need plain white Mary Janes with a matte finish. These should be worn with white lacy ankle socks - but don't get the ones with too many rows of lace. Girls in the 10-12 division need a pair of clear, open-toed shoes to wear with their ball gown. Most girls like a shoe with a 3 or 4-inch chunky heel. The height raises the gown and the chunky heel gives the girl more stability when walking.

Hair and makeup: Have this done by a professional at the pageant. Price varies widely from pageant to pageant. At a small local pageant, you can get a good artist for around $65. At a big national pageant, this same person will charge more because of demand.

Tanning: If your DD is caucasian, she'll need to be tanned before going on stage. Many hair and makeup people also do tanning. Don't attempt to do this yourself to save a few bucks unless you have a lot of experience. Your DD could turn out streaked, spotted, or orange. The average price for tanning is around $25.

Jewelry: Little girls will need a pair of simple simulated-diamond studs. The older girls will need a pair of cluster earrings or a pair of dainty dangling earrings. These should be done in AB Swarovski stones or in colored stones that match the dress. Most of the little girls wear a choker that matches their dress. Girls in 10-12 with a halter neckline won't need a necklace, either. Otherwise, 10-12 girls can wear a necklace made of Swarovski beads in crystal, AB, stones to match the dress, or with a combination of stones. You can easily make your own necklace like this or buy one from a pageant person.

Number pin: When you enter the pageant, you'll receive your DD's number on a piece of paper that has to be pinned to her dress. The pageant staff will provide a straight pin for this purpose. This is okay, but a crown pin will look a lot better. You can find crown pins online and in pageant shops. Also, these are often sold at larger pageants by vendors set up in the lobby. The cost for such a pin is nominal, usually from $2 up to over $10.

Hair adorments: Most little girls wear a hair bow that matches their dress.The bow should have a few Swarovski stones on it to make it sparkle. Girls in the 10-12 division need a barrette that's adorned with Swarovski stones in AB, in the dress color, or in a mixture of both. Some girls wear silk flowers the color of the dress that have been embellished with stones and glued to a hair clip.

Pageant photos: The judges see and judge the photos before they ever see the girls. This is the judge's first impression of your DD, so make it a good one. It's a good idea to enter more than one photo. Include glitz and natural photos, and place each in a photo-protector sleeve. On the back of the photo, place a sheet that has the girl's name and age division.

Final note

Beauty pageants aren't for everyone. If your child doesn't want to compete in pageants, please don't force her to do so. This activity should be for the child - not for the mom. One of my granddaughters and my niece absolutely adore being in pageants! Another granddaughter, however, doesn't care for them at all, so we don't force her into them. Also, it's important for pageant moms to have the right attitude about competing. It shouldn't be all about winning. Think of it as a way to spend a fun day with your daughter, when she can be "princess for a day."

Disgusting. Why the h*ll would a grown person judge a child on their phiycsal apperance? It's sick. And the amount of makeup they put on those girls is ridiculous. I don't even know grown women who wear that much makeup in a week instead of looking like toddlers and young girls they end up looking like short 30 year old women.It teaches them the I'm pretty so I get money and fame and whatever I want! attitude, and teaches them that if they aren't as pretty as other girls, then they are not good enough. I know they have talent' sections in those pageants, but when it all comes down to it, it's about what they LOOK like. Again, what sick person would think it's okay to judge a CHILD on their physcial apperance?

halfpint97 on January 03, 2013:

Ashley, how old are you? And where in Michigan do you live? I might know some people

halfpint97 on January 03, 2013:

hannah, get a dress that is a prom dress but don't get it too puffy. Get one that has only a couple layers.

halfpint97 on January 03, 2013:

Oh and I have braces. Will that affect me at all? I'm above

megan on January 03, 2013:

Hi my name is Megan and I'm 15 and I love the show Toddlers and Tiaras and I really want to be in a pageant but I don't want to tell my mom because she thinks I don't want to be in them. Am I too old to start being in pageants? And how can I tell her? Even if I'm just in natural first. And I found a natural pageant by me but I can't find glitz. Can you help? Thanks

Brianna on August 12, 2012:

If u have braces u shouldn't get flippers because the flipper would be really big. don't worry, they wont take off points or anything like that if u have braces. i had braces 2 and iv also seen a number of people who won ultimate grand supreme who have braces

Shaniqua on June 28, 2012:

Hey girl! I'm 14 and my 12 yr old sis and I really want to try pageants. We have both had braces but should we buy flippers to enhance our smiles even ore by making them whiter?

Madison on April 28, 2012:

Hi, I've been watching toddlers and tiaras for a while and I've always wanted to do glitz pageants. I've seen older girls do it like 18+ and I'm 17. is that to old to start? I feel like it is. But I've been thinking about it a lot because I know when I have a kid I want her to do pageants. Can you help me find pageants close to my area for my age? And where i can get all the necessary items for it? thanks :)

Godgirl7 on April 14, 2012:

Hi Habee!

My little sister is interested in competing in glitz pageants, but this is her first one, and I was wondering if you knew any ideas for a denim wear competition that would wow the judges.

Thanks!

lakelynns mom on April 13, 2012:

Tiana... u r so off its unreal! everyone is entitled to their own opinions but atleast get the facts right! A spray tan doesn't. Stain skin it sits on top of it like ur makeup and can be removed with hand sanatizer at any time. Have u ever been in a sport at all? Just like a sport u dress for the occasion and try to be ur best it requires skill just like a sport and in a way a judge is like a ref. They point out when ur not doing things correctly so if pageants are bad so is football baseball lacrosse soccer tennis and everything else! Not everyone uses a hairpeice but if ya ask me its a safety maneuver. U curl ur wiglet to give u the big hair look without burning ur natural hair... and finally what do u mean making them be something they are not? What beauty queens? Our daughters are beautiful that's why they are in pageants! didn't u ever wanna be a princess for a day when u were younger?

tiana on April 11, 2012:

Im a senior high school student and im doing an research on child pageants and find it so sad how mothers are obsessed with getting their daughters, "glitz". Really people? Temporarily staining your childrens skin, and giving them false teeth, but giving it a better looking name called "flippers". Pageants should be more natural and less fake.. don't get me wrong i love getting make up on and putting cute otufits on and going out with all my girlfriends, put to compete for beauty, and pay people to make your daughter a better competitor is just sad. And fake hair? Amazes me. Common people, be more natural and stop teaching your daughters to be fake, and something they're really not.

Now that i'm in New York i would love to know more about the experience of american children, parents, casting directors (anyone involved in the beauty pageants/fashion business can have an interesting point of view for me!) who work in the world of beauty pageants and/or modelling, advertising.

Dolly on January 01, 2012:

Hi, I'm 13 and desperate to do a Glitz pageant after watching countless episodes of Toddlers and Tiaras on YouTube. As several other girls in similar situations have said, my parents (especially my Dad) do not approve whatsoever. I'm too scared to ask because I know what the reaction will be after hearing their opinions on the matter. I am based in the UK, which makes it even harder for me to compete as the only pageants over here are natural(ish), but I am thinking of offering to arrange everything I need for one, and the next time we are in New York, entering.. That is, if my parents actually agree. I'm not really interested in doing natural pageants, so doing them in the UK isn't a great option for me. Any ideas? Thanks.

Brianna on November 27, 2011:

oh, and another thing (sorry that I’m bothering you so much) so I live in New York (Harrison, New York to be specific) and I have been looking online for beauty pageants with 13 year old age groups and I haven’t found any pageants for that except for Miss America and Miss New York and Miss teen New York and all of that stuff but I need a beginners pageant. my mom said that she might let me enter in pageants if I found a pageant I could do in New York but all of the pageants for my age that I have her of like Universal Royalty has pageants in the south and my mom doesn’t " want to fly all the way south for one stupid pageant". Do you know of any pageants for me in New York and/or a website address to help me find them?

Brianna on November 27, 2011:

Hi Habee it's me again (and sorry that my last blog was so long) I just wanted to add that I have been also making my own routines for swim wear (I practiced it a lot and I really want to show it off at a pageant) and I need help on beauty and outfit of choice (I’m thinking that I want to do a western wear for it at my first pageant if I get to do pageants) do you know any good pageant coaches and also hair and makeup stylists. Thanks again.

Brianna on November 27, 2011:

Hi Habee, I am 13 and I need advice on convincing my parents to let me do beauty pageants, much like Maeggan and Skyla. I really really want to do pageants but my family thinks that it is crazy, although I’m dead serious about wanting to compete. I have it on my Christmas list but it’s not likely that I’m going to get it. I have been searching for pageant clothes and hair pieces and coaches online just in case and I am trying to save up as much money as I can to see if my mom will let me do it if I use my own money. Please help me with advice on convincing my parents. Thanks.

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Danielle, it depends on who you use and what you get. Expect to pay several hundred bucks for top quality glitz pageant photos.

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Shaiane, what is it exactly that you want to know?

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Sammi, I have never heard of talent for a six-month-old baby!! Have you asked the director?

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Chardelle, check out Ebay and some of the pageant boards.

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Chardelle, go to the link in the above article for tips about choosing a dress color. As for your routine, I suggest watching youtube videos. Good luck!

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Heather, a four-year-old girl should wear white mary janes, with dress socks.

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Abbie, rent a dress. Sometimes you can also rent a wig or fall.

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Selena, I'm not familiar with Canada. Sorry!

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Morgan, sorry, but I've never heard of that. Remember, though, that every judge is different.

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Madison, try to find a sponsor!

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Sorry, Julie. Did she say no to natural pageants?

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Denim, I'm glad you found it helpful!

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Lace wigs, thanks a bunch for reading my beauty pageants hub!

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on November 14, 2011:

Katie, Toddlers/Tiaras isn't real life. I've run into few pageant moms and kids who were like the ones on that show.

We are very new to the pageant world and have placed with a supreme title at the last 3 pageants my DD has done, but at the last pageant one of the judges told me that i needed to make sure that the eye makeup my daughter is wearing is the right look for a pageant bc what we are doing seems to be more dance makeup... are their specific guidelines for pageant eye makeup? my DD is 8... Thanks!

hi there! my mom's best friends daughter is going to compete in her first ever beauty pageant. She's four and is not shy and is a BIG diva, I would really want to be her coach but I don't know a lot about coaching do you have any advise? thanks :)

Holle Abee (author) from Georgia on July 08, 2011:

Hannah, that's a good question. The age division makes it tricky. I'd go with the ball gown - it's a safe choice.

Ani, most flippers cost about the same. Look online for Unity.

Ani on July 05, 2011:

Is there anywhere you can get a cheaper flipper? I wasn't expecting them to be that much.

Hannah on July 02, 2011:

Hi Habee!

I just turned 13 years old, and hopefully will be in my first pageant soon. One question about dresses, should I wear a full ballgown, or try a mermaid dress? In the pageant I'm planning on being in, the age group is 10-13. I didn't know if because I was with the younger girls, I stuck with the ballgown, or if because I am 13, go with the mermaid.

Thanks!
