Day 4 was another exciting day at MTC! We spent the day rehearsing and getting hair and makeup done for the Preliminary competition.

A very special Thank You to Jenn and Carmina for the amazing hair and makeup! You ladies always work your magic to make us all look ready for the runway!

Preliminaries were a bit nerve racking at first but it was also very exciting. It was great to have the support of my family and MTOE pageant family in the audience. They were certainly boisterous in their supportive manner when I hit the stage!

My Preliminary Evening Gown from Bells and Bows Bridal in Lethbridge Alberta

I was so excited to wear the first of two gorgeous evening gowns from Bells and Bows Bridal in Lethbridge, Alberta. I will be wearing my second stunning gown on stage at the official pageant. I love both gowns and feel confident and special in both!

The swimsuit competition was next. That was certainly intimidating but we were all in it together and everyone did a great job modelling our adorable swimsuits from the Miss Teenage Canada Swimsuit sponsor; HOT WATER SWIMWEAR and we walked confidently in our sparkly shoes from VANGELO FOOTWEAR!

The Talent show followed the Preliminary competition and the talent displayed by my fellow delegates was AMAZING! Singing, dancing, auctioneering, piano playing and event a drum solo. For those of us not participating in the optional Talent competition, we were able to change into our cocktail dresses and enjoy the show! I have no idea how the judges will pick a talent winner. They were all fantastic!

After the Preliminaries and Talent competition came to a close we had a few minutes to visit with our family and friends who have come to cheer us on! It was GREAT to see everyone! I am so fortunate to have such a great support team here!

The evening was exciting! I can’t believe how quickly the week is flying by. Tomorrow is a major rehearsal day and then Sunday is Pageant Day!

Stay tuned to see an update on Day 5

Be Brave, Be Strong,

Emma, Miss Teenage Eastern Ontario
