Frequently Asked Questions
Is the pageant glitz or natural?
Our Little Miss is a natural pageant! Participants should wear off the rack clothing that lets their facial beauty and personality shine. We want to see the child, not the outfit. No fake anything is allowed in our Infant through Ideal Miss age divisions. Teens and Women may wear nails, eyelashes, tans, etc. but please remember to keep everything light and natural looking.
Do I need expensive or custom clothing to compete?
You should be able to dress your child for a prelim using clothing from their own closet. If you need to pick up any items, hit the resale shops and sales racks to find great deals on adorable clothing perfect!
Does my child need a "pageant coach"?
No! While there are pageant instructors that advertise aid in learning modeling, interview etc. we do not officially endorse or sponsor any individuals or companies. Your preliminary directors provide all necessary help you will need in preparing for the State and International competitions. You are welcome to hire these services on your own but please keep in mind Our Little Miss does not sponsor or endorse coaches, you pay for these services at your own risk.
What are the makeup rules?
Teen and Women participants may wear light, daytime makeup for all areas of competition. All makeup should be age appropriate.
Are there any rules for costume, hair, and makeup for talent?
No! Talent is the one area of competition where you may wear full stage hair and makeup and costumes may have bling. Please remember to keep costumes age appropriate and modest.
