Applicants will be required to complete the Pageant Application, provide two (2) photographs of themselves that they feel best displays themselves and their chosen look, and answer interview questions that will be considered by the judges in selecting Semi-Finalists.
Judges will select 12 Semi-Finalists from across the spectrum of applicants. The 12 selected Semi-Finalists will compete in the actual pageant competition PLUS pageant events prior to the actual pageant. These include Meet and Greet events prior to the pageant, Pageant “School” to provide hints and tips on pageant competition, and MANDATORY pageant rehearsals.
At the pageant itself, all Semi-Finalists will be judged in two categories. The first will be an Open Style Review. Each Semi-Finalist will pick her own signature look and will walk the runway for review by the Judges. They will then change into Swim Wear of their choice and again walk the runway for review.
The judges will pick five Finalists who will be judged in one final category, Evening Wear. Once that is complete, Judges will select the winners, Miss Busty SL 2015, First Runner-Up, Second Runner-Up.
