Today I present to you … a Doll Beauty Pageant! Yesterday was a snow day (7″ here) and school was closed, which the girls love. Thankfully my girls play together really well, and I love seeing the creative things they come up with.
They decided to put on a doll beauty pageant. I heard them doing evening wear and “beauty”, where the judges are looking for confidence, smile, and beauty. The girls made up score cards and graded each others’ dolls. Here they are just before the final results:
Edit to answer the question you’re all dying to know – SAMANTHA was the winner (near the center, dark hair, navy colonial dress).
I am thinking they were inspired by Toddlers and Tiaras, a show on TLC which we watched last night. I was disturbed and yet strangely fascinated by it, as were the kids. Maybe I’ll do a post on it later, because it’s going to be a series.
Also, I think they were inspired by the recent Miss America pageant, which was won by Katie Stam, who happens to live in the town where I grew up (no, I don’t know her, but I know of her family and my mom knows them somewhat).
