The place that did my tan was amazing! The owner is a friend of mine and she went absolutely above and beyond. That being said, when I do this again I will either stick to good old tanning booth tan (I was already really dark) or I will pay for the on site competitiion)
I chose bikini because it seemed honestly the “simplest” division. 1 walk, 1 bikini, 1 pair of shoes. Although I felt amazing I also felt after looking at pictures that I was a little too defined and perhaps “bulky” for the division. Next time I plan to compete in Fitness model and give that a go! Plus, now that I have a taste for the stage, going on twice isn’t quite so scary.
It was amazing having my boys at my first competition. They screamed and yelled and cheered me on when I went on stage. That being said having to worry about the munchkins at the same time as compete was allot to deal with and I think I’ll find something for them to do or somewhere for them to be next time.
I practiced and practiced and practiced before this show. That being said, I needed allot more practice. I have already signed up for a workshop in May and I may contact my posing coach again before the next competition
That’s a short list considering. I had such an amazing experience. Thanks again to everyone who supported me through all of this. I’m hooked!
