Subject: When is it appropriate to post a crown photo of yourself when you're a former titleholder? I see some ladies doing this and always felt it takes away from the reigning queen, but on the otherhand, it helps to promote the system.
Subject: If you could nominate someone for an award as one of the hardest working real queens out there, who would you choose? Please keep in mind, this is not to bash anyone, I just want to send out a few little fun gifts to those ladies who are truly representing through their hard work and efforts. Care to nominate someone?? It's all in good fun so you must play nice or do not post, please

Somebody tell me why exactly the last THREE pageants I wanted to see all cost $$45-$55 to attend? MAO is still reasonable at around $20 each and USA has always been high but Great production but what's u with other systems wanting $50-$75 for VIP seating which is just one row closer and what happened to visiting queens getting discounts?
Just a few years ago it was standard to pay $5 or $10 less (if at all) to go in your banner, now it's about $50 to see any pageant. That's ludicrous! I cancelled plans to go t two already because $100 can buy a decent cocktail dress on Pageant Resale, in some cases an interview dress or swimsuit!
What started this ridiculous trend? Would you pay $50-70 just to WATCH if it isn't your kid or friend competing? Seems they're only hurting their own sales

Subject: Sorry, but I just cannot get with ladies begging for money on facebook to do pageants. If you cannot afford to do the pageant this year, save up for next year. Why put the added stress on yourself. and it's plain ol tacky to beg for money for your hobby.

The Mrs. Georgia Pageant now how a new State Director!!!
Hello Pageant Enthusiasts – I am SO excited to share the new news with you! My name is Pam Bolter I have officially been awarded the state directorship for the Mrs. Georgia United States Pageant and I could not be happier! I have been the Director for Florida for the past fourteen years (and a former Mrs. Florida myself) – so I do know what it’s like on both sides of the stage.
Our business name will remain the Florida U.S. Pageant (as all the bank work and legal papers have been drawn up for the past 14 years).
My hope this year is to hold the Florida/Georgia Pageant TOGETHER! How much fun would that be? Then going to nationals you will already have a pageant sister queen to share this incredible experience with!!! The Florida Pageant is already scheduled for the weekend of April 24-26 in the Daytona Beach area (a fun, family-friendly area and on the Atlantic Ocean!) so you could make a mini-vacation out of it. However, if the response from my Georgia ladies isn’t positive to coming to Daytona for the pageant, I will consider moving it to Jacksonville, FL (just over the Georgia line).
Please contact me asap for your official state application; our e-mail address is MrsGeorgiaPageant@gmail.com

We'd love to have YOU represent your state at the international pageant!
Subject: Do you think its good for a pageant queen to post photos of herself smiling holding her gun over the deer she just killed? Is this seen as "ok" or do you find it offensive? Should these photos come out?
Subject: Okay... I'm posting this because I think this is a true "beauty queen". I met her at a pageant and what she's doing to save lives goes above and beyond... She's actually "fighting" to end cancer. I'm talking literally fighting. I've known her for a while and watched her compete and she's actually getting into a boxing ring to fight for other people to live. I came across this from a post from one of my friends. She's held a bunch of titles and I'm just so inspired.... how many other "queens" would put thier own health at risk to help others?
Author: Real queen.... hell yeah... can we support her? I hope so... [ Edit | View ]

Subject: I am competing in 1 of the big 3. My wardrobe is stellar for the week & competition, I am a visible queen with appearances & charity work, my ad page is paid for as is my hotel room but I cannot afford to pay $1000 or more for hair and makeup. I've chosen to invest my money in other aspects of the pageant and competition. I would love to have my hair and makeup done professionally but I can't justify the money on that. I'm pretty good at doing my hair and makeup for events and competitions. I feel good about doing it myself. My question is, Is it possible to make top, place or even win?

You are a contestant in a pageant that doesn't have a non-compete for state titles, which is fine, but another contestant who does appearances, takes pictures at each appearance with multiple sashes/crowns.
While it's not against the rule to hold multiple titles, it looks tacky to me and affects the integrity of each system she is representing.

I wish all pageant websites would contain the following information:
- date, time, location of the event on the front page
- cost to attend the event and whether any discounts will apply (visiting titleholders from same or different pageant systems)
- list and photos of contestants competing with short biographies
- list of awards to be given at the pageant as well as selection criteria for each award
- list of complete pageant rules including general requirements for queens such as appearance requirements and non-compete rules.
- list of competition categories with example pictures and descriptions. These descriptions should be given to judges, so both contestants and judges have the exact same information.
- photos from last year's event in each phase of competition with each contestant.
- complete cost information to compete; one page should contain all of the costs including entry fee(s), ad page fees (and whether they are required), ticket prices, special event ticket info, hotel information, etc.
- a bonus is an active and updated pageant blog or Facebook page wherein the queen as well as contestants are highlighted.
