    i know its slightly off subject, and it would be wrong to spray tan a child anyway as far as i am concerned, but this mother clearly doesnt know what she is doing!
    As someone who has modelled (and chosen it for myelf when i was a grown adult!) i know most judges/photographers will tell you its better having no tan then a bad one, and that one is terrible! that poor girl has orange hands and palms - it looks terrible. not only would it look terrible in a competition (that she really shouldnt be in anyway) it would stop her looking normal even when she DOES get to play like a regular child!

    I know its kinda a moot point - she shouldnt be wearing a tanning agent of any description at that age - but honestly its a waste of time anyway if its so badly done.

    grrrr. who takes a child that age, dresses her up like a doll and covers her in orange spray? and then tries to justify it!

    btw did anyone else notice the before/after photos? shes wearing makeup in both, OR her face has been perminantly stained by adult makeups.

    Yes I agree with pp. Its a shockingly bad tan with the orange/brown palms. Her face looks awefully pale with the rest of her body and that platinum blond hair on a tanned body doesn't look right either. A person with that kind of a dark skin colour should at least be a brunette. But thats me.
    If it was once a month, ok. But once a week???? The only photos she'll ever have of being herself, would be her baby photos. From the age of 2, she is permanently tanned.
    I do not believe she is a pretty girl. I believe that my son has prettier lashes and if I grow his hair long, he'd be a lot cuter too
    No, seriously, I have seen much prettier toddlers with natural skin.

    There are a few high paid Dutch and German models that live in countries where the sun barely ever shines. They are dropdead gorgeous without the tan!
    The $4600,- spent on pageants, is money well spent IMO. That child will never see the inside of a school if her mum keeps this up. No need to save up for college money.

    The worst thing I have seen on one of these "Toddler and Tiaras" type shows was a mother putting her 5yo in to there home solarium

    Nothing short of abuse. Why does the law not protect these kids?

    no! thats horrific!

    how can we know what this is doing to the fragile body/eyes/skin/scalp/heart/everything else of a child? these things are tested on adults and we still havent seen what the effects are like 60yrs later.

    i just do not understand! a child does not need to look like a playboy bunny or drag queen - and yes, i said it, lol! big hair skimpy dress fake tan - what are people thinking??

    im now wondering if i should be glad that woman put such a bad tan on her daughter - someone that knew about tanning might exfoliate their kid for tanning etc, and after that solarium comment am thinking some mums might - it still stings my skin, a 2 yr old has much more delicate skin then me

    I've noticed this too. Mothers living thru their daughters The whole thing freaks me out. The stupid fake teeth, the big 80's hair, the vacant 'doll' smile they teach them, the gross sexual dances 2 and 3 yos do *shudders*

    this isn't for self esteem.... well actually I take that back, it's for the mothers self esteem.... and 5k a year? totally ridiculous.

    totally agree. it really is borderline child abuse imo.

    putting your kids in a tent, spraying them with chemicals (that we have no longstanding evidence they are safe....) let alone a solarium!
    and the poor kids ALWAYS throw tantrums, cry, beg to be left alone when they are getting their hair and make up done while the mother's cry 'oh, she LOVES it'.....
    as for the whole pedophile association with child beauty competitions...ick

    sorry, just vomited in my mouth

    That's why I find sad on that show, these women say how their girls loooove it soooo much, but the poor child balls thru all the makeup and hair and tries to pull off her 80's hair piece. Ah huh. She really loves it

    Yep. Makes perfect sense
    Yes that was my thought when I read it

    It's disgusting

    And I've seen much worse on toddlers and tiaras. Eye brow and under arm waxing, fake eye lashes, hair dying (her natural colour is dull ) hair extensions. Fake teeth caps
