Plans of Pageants

While drawing this page, I couldn't help but finally draw Banhi as a wee Sailor Scout. I've done Shanku a couple of times. It was Banhi's turn. I think she's less likely to skin me alive for it than her sister is too! Emotie: :)

One of the stranger things I learned this past year is that apparently beauty pageants are rampant in the South and a bit more scaled back elsewhere. I was only vaguely aware they existed outside of Miss America. I was at least aware of the craziness that is cheerleaders and football. But, I'm a tomboy from the sticks. Frills and lace are about as appealing to me as mud to a cat, and I suspect pageants are more for suburbanites anyway (but I say some of that sh%t too [if you clicked the link], and I recommend the fried chicken shape-up video Emotie: ;D).

Naturally, I never spent much time looking into pageants. Or mirrors, for that matter. Shoot, I skipped my one chance of a prom during highschool so I could go to my first karate tournament and watch how they competed in the hopes I could do it some day. Had to drop out of class and thus didn't get a chance to compete in a tournament during those days, but I'll be back in it eventually and hopefully in the top five or top three if I keep competing enough. Heh, could you imagine me at a pageant back then? "And here is Miss Ashe, demonstrating the Seisan kata!" Anything to get out of shoes and especially heels, eh?

...It's been raining for about a week straight and I'm lovin' it. It's hovering around the 30's and 40's too, so it's good coffee and hot chocolate weather. A bit rough on Mischief and the pups since it limits their time outside, but warm weather will be here again before they know it.

Like the story and want to help support it?
Commission me or buy me a coffee!
