Thank you to Pas De Deux Hawaii  for breathetaking performances during the show.  Thank you to Trilogy Martial Arts for assisting us with the audience (damage control as I like to call it).  Thank you to the Emcee Amber Stone, Judges Helen Kuoha-Torco, Amanda Stevens, Racyne Sugai, Paul Klink and Shadow Koko, as well as our tabulator Natalie Luz for their time and continuous support of our pageants.

Pageant Director Ms. Marybeth Jenkins did an amazing job, as always, even though she’s got baby Zyana on the way, she still managed to run around and make sure everything is in place.

Thank you to our assistants and pageant queens for your help before, during and after the show.

Most of all, thank you to the wonderful parents of our beautiful contestants for your endless guidance and encouragement throughout their endeavors!!!

Miss Hawaii Princess Pageants 2012

And Miss Honey is a busy bee, again and again….

Susan Page Modeling will be producing the 4th Annual Miss Hawaii Princess on Saturday, May 26th at the Leeward Community College Theater. Just like the Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii Pageant this past March, the pageant will also be under the direction of one of my favorite people in the world, Ms. Marybeth Jenkins… as well as yours truly, which explains the buzzing honey bee.

There are three age divisions:
Miss Hawaii Preteen Princess 2012 (ages 9-11 years old, 12 delegates)
Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2012 (ages 12-14 years old, 7 delegates)
Miss Hawaii Teen Princess 2012 (ages 15-18 years old, 6 delegates)

A total of twenty five delegates will be judged in Fitnesswear/Swimwear, Talent/Spokesmodel, Evening Gown and Interview phases of competition. Three of these beautiful young women will be crowned the queen in their respected age groups. The very impressive panel of judges includes an international hula dancer, an actor and fashion magnate, a stylist, author, and model/actress.

Performances during the pageant include Pas Des Deux Hawaii (Owned and Directed by Disney Imagineer’s Wendy Gilbert), the current Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Beauty 2012 Sheera Tamura, the newly crowned Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii 2012 Jennifer Glass, and the reigning Miss Hawaii Princesses themselves- Miss Hawaii Preteen Princess 2011 Tamlyn Sasaki, Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2011 Atheena Arasoo, and Miss Hawaii Teen Princess 2011 Gwendolyn Kenwright.  The current Princesses will also be delivering their farewell speeches before they crown their successors.

Former titleholders will be making a special appearance at the pageant- the beautiful Jasmine Graffis, the first Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2009, and her successor, the alluring Elisabeth Levine, Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2010.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to take these two beautiful young women under my wings, and I am SO very proud of what they have accomplished.

In the middle of all the stress, and the hard work put into producing and directing a pageant, every speck of energy into making this event successful is worth it.  The second we see the girls onstage, and feel the excitement of the parents, friends, and family members supporting the contestants, we forget it all.  We forget the madness…the infuriating little details and silly hoops we had to jump through to put this thing together.  The contestants just shine onstage!

That is why I love pageants.  Pageants are positive, life changing experiences for young women.  It’s empowering to know that beauty is not skin deep, that you can wear a dress and a crown…and still make a difference…even if you’re wearing 5 inch heels.

Tickets are $25 Pre-Sale Price per person, children 4 years and under are free.

Hope to see you there!


Not Just A Pageant- A Celebration of Women In the Armed Forces

Susan Page Modeling is producing its first annual Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii 2012 Pageant on Saturday, March 24th at Mamiya Theater. There are 13 lovely ladies vying for the title, all of whom are 18 years old and older and are either active duty or spouses/dependents of military personnel in the different branches of service- Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Marine, and Air Force.

Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii

President and Owner of Susan Page Modeling, and Founder of the Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii Pageant, (and also one of the most inspirational people in my life) Mrs. Rebecca Schumacher designed the pageant to celebrate women of the Armed Forces. “It’s not just a pageant, it’s an experience,” Rebecca tells the candidates.  Of course it’s so much more than a competition- it’s an experience that will create new friendships and wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Some of the contestants have already been featured in our Fall Fashion Show in December entitled “Winter Wonderland”, showcasing wedding gowns from one of the pageant’s sponsors, B’Ellagance Bridal & Gowns.

Beginning this Saturday, January 28th, the ladies will be attending a six-week pageant training course instructed by Pageant Director Marybeth Jenkins. Additional events and activities lined up for the ladies include a makeup workshop with Keahi Kirley, hair clinic sponsored by L’Oreal, a photo shoot with Damien Bujeker, and a zumba and fitness session with Miss MMA Hawaii Leslie Kaleiwahea.

Like the previous pageants, I will be assisting in the Administrative side and also designing the pageant book, as well as donating some handmade jewelries on behalf of Fashion with A Mission.  As of today most of the paperwork have been completed, including the judging criteria and what it means to reign as the Ms. Armed Forces 2012.

The objective of this pageant is to showcase our beautiful, intelligent, and strong women of the Armed Forces as well as the women who support a loved one serving in the Armed Forces. The ultimate goal of the judges is to evaluate and select a winner who is a strong role model and demonstrates a positive attitude towards her family and her country. She must have strong physical, mental and emotional characteristics that set her apart from other delegates. She must be poised, graceful, and elegant and firmly stands for what she believes in while being supportive and understanding in others opinions. Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii is a woman who posses all attributes of a beauty queen- a woman who is sincere, and knows how to maintain her integrity and humility in everything she sets to accomplish. Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii is a woman who is beautiful inside and out— someone who is very proud of her country and in her position within the Armed Forces.

The contestants will be judged in four phases of competition: Swimwear (15%), Talent/Spokesmodel (20%), Evening Gown (30%), Interview (25%), and overall Personality (10%).

An impressive panel of judges within the modeling and entertainment industry in Hawaii has been selected, and three of the five judges have been confirmed including Hawaii’s Ari Gold, Premier Models & Talent Director/Owner Douglas Lange, the beautiful and exotic Miss Hawaii USA 2011 Angela Byrd, and the legendary Ms. Susan Page herself! Dignitaries from the Armed Forces and the community will also be in attendance.

Winners will receive cash prizes, modeling scholarship, photo shoot, a modeling contract, beauty baskets, gift certificates, jewelries and other great prizes from our pageant sponsors. The newly crowned Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii 2012 will also be donating 10% of the ticket proceeds to her choice of Special Services, which means the more tickets we sell, the more we can donate to a cause.

Tickets are at $25.00 per person Pre-sale price, and $30.00 at the door.

How exciting, another new venture in the world of pageantry. Who will wear the crown?
