Next up was a journey to Irvine to judge the Orange County Cinderella Preliminary Pageant. This pageant has age divisions for babies on up to 26 years old and even boys up to age 6. They compete in interview or playtime, talent/personality, sportswear and party wear. Cinderella is another pageant system that is close to my heart and as a former preliminary, state, and International Queen I look forward to any opportunity I have to spend with my Cindy Sisters. Pictured here with me is the reigning California Overall Teen Lauren Creger, California Overall Miss Madeline Karnes, and California Cindy Girl Savannah Preuss, and below is the Orange County Overall Woman Tiffany Kaufmann.
I started out my Sunday morning at the American Coed Pageants Boot Camp for the California Queens. I started competing with Coed Pageants back in the early 90's and this is where my love for pageants really started to grow. As a former state Coed queen and National Woman queen I know first hand what goes into preparing for the fun filled competition week at Disney World in Florida. The Queens spent this weekend together not only preparing for the National Pageant this November but also participating in a weekend filled with photo shoots, make-up lessons, gifts from pageant sponsors including a sponsored dinner at TGI Fridays and clothing from Celebrity Pink Jeans and just a great overall bonding experience for the girls and mom's alike. Way to go state director Camille Winters for a job well done putting this all together. Pictured here are queens: Amy Rice, Sidnie Walls, Haley-Shea Nichols, Denise Jenkins Alexis and Randilyn Seebalac, Isabella Satgliano, Brittany Carr, and Emily Honng.
