    Holy shit, read this:

    I am considering pulling dd out of pageants. I just read someone paid $30 a picture and entered 75 extra picture. I can't do that. I spent $60,000 on pageants last year and dd won some good titles but nothing like what I spent. I dont think I can do this anymore and I can't keep up with the people who are still spending $100,000 a year and more now.

    Pageants are weeding out everyone that cant spend over $100K a year. That is the only way you win the big titles. I'm sort of sad because I thought we did ok keeping up with what we had to have, but it gets worse every weekend. More to buy and I've had enough.

    Okay, now that shit is just wrong. WRONG. 60 grand??? And other pageantards spend 100 grand and MORE???

    What in the world is WRONG with these fucking people??? They have to be FITH, all of them. 60-100 grand a year or more to turn your kid into pedo bait. Can you imagine?

    I knew this shit was expensive, but damnnnnnn.

    Dress $2000-$3500, cw $250-$600, swimwear $350-$450, ww $700-$2200, sw $800-$1500, pics $500-$4000...this is pre-pageant expenses.

    Entry fees (Nationals) $800-$1600, gas/airline/rental car/hotel costs vary depending on travel distance but hotel rooms are about $150 or more per night with "discount", hair and makeup for the weekend $250-$350 and you best bring eyelashes yourself, nails will run you about $25, tan will cost you $30-$45, shoes/socks for beauty alone are going to be hit $40 or more and this doesn't include coaching that is weekly at $125-$200 for the best.

    You do the math and remember this includes no food or all those toys that are bought from the time you leave your house until you get back.

    Oh, I'm sure most of them are probably drowning in debt. All that for a pink sash, a four-foot tall cheesy-ass crown and a $100 scholarship to Lurleen's Beauty Academy!

    I'm not the only one with eyes opening...from one of the pink boards...is a click in so no one will really read it...

    "As obnoxious and rude as they may seem (grimlock and etc) why are we, as pageant moms, not looking at this as an eyeopener. We love our dd, we love pageants and we love to practice pageants at home for the next big national BUT come on, some of the stuff is true. Why do we have to put so much makeup on our dd's, or the falls, or the flippers or the tans? So we can make them up to look better than they are already?

    Like I said, we do all the national pageants out there but deep inside, I just wish some directors would jump on the wagon and make stuff more natural. It really has got out out of control. This doesn't even take into consideration the money we spend on clothes. $1000-$2500 on a dress, $200-$450 on a swimwear, $200-$450 on a casual wear and so on.

    Plus, 90% of mothers out there are not even honest about what they spend with their husbands. Nobody wants to be honest to your spouse because he to would think that you are outright crazy for spending all that money on clothes that we will wear maybe, and I say this lightly, a year.

    I wish we could go back to pageants where we could spend $50 on a off the rack casual wear, $25 on a swimwear and $100 on a really nice department store dress. Why not? Then we could use the photographers in our neighborhood for nice pictures and we can do a simple, but free, hairstyle.

    Doesn't that seem more logical if we truely want to say our kid won a beauty pageant? Off of her actual natural beauty?

    That's just my opinion and how things have changed so much!"
