So over the past few weeks I have been researching information on show costs for participating in a competition. Holy cow! It is expensive, but I already knew that going into the research. I am determined to save, save, save and save up to be able to afford the costs for my show. There is a lot you have to take into consideration. I will post the prices when I begin prepping to show you how it all adds up. $$$
– federation membership fee
– federation card
– tan, makeup, hair, and nails
– food and supplement costs
– Posing classes
Are you starting to get the picture? I have been asking myself, “How on earth is a 24 year old server going to be able to come up with the money that is required to participate in a show?” The answer to that is … I honestly don’t know. I am going to take it one day at a time and will do what I must to make it happen. I have a plan but it wont be easy and I will have to work very hard to achieve this goal. Nothing worth having comes easy and I am prepared to put in the hours of blood, sweat, and tears that it takes to be successful.
I would love some feedback from those of you who have participated in a show and have personally experienced the prep process physically and financially. I always welcome and appreciate advice!
