BIKINI MODEL ATTIRE
Contestants can wear a standard two-piece bikini of any colour pattern as long it is in good taste. No micro-bikinis, G-strings, or thongs are permitted. Again, keep it classy! High heels are the footwear to be worn in this category. Wear heels that you’re able to comfortably walk in and are not distracting to the judges and audience. Jewelry should complement the physique and not distract from it. Please, no large necklaces or bracelets. Earrings, simple bracelets, and rings that complement the physique are permitted.
Even though body condition is softer than in the Men’s Muscle Model category, the emphasis here is based on a healthy, shapely, athletic physique with visible abs and overall attractiveness. Facial beauty, physical fitness, even skin tone, poise, posture, and confidence are key to photogenic quality and overall marketability and placing. Skin tone and complexion should be smooth, firm, and healthy in appearance and without cellulite. Hair and makeup should complement the total presentation.
MEN’S MUSCLE MODEL ATTIRE
Contestants’ attire is traditional knee-high board shorts that complement the contestant’s physique. Shorts need to be worn in good taste with no torn materials or holes. Keep it classy! We prefer the contestants be in bare feet. Jewelry should complement the physique and not distract from it. Please, no necklaces or bracelets. Small earrings, rings, and wedding bands are permitted.
Men are judged on lean, developed, and proportionate muscles with visible separation and overall physique condition. Muscular balance and clearly defined abs are key to overall assessment. A well-proportioned, photogenic, healthy-looking, tanned, muscular physique is the desired presentation. Remember, stage presence is also important as poise and self-confidence are easily detected by the judges and audience, which may affect your overall marketability and placing.
NOTE: Men’s Muscle Model competitors will be asked to choose a “favourite classic bodybuilding pose of your choice.” After quarter-turn presentations, they will come back around to front pose. At that point they will be asked to hit their favourite classic bodybuilding
+35 FITNESS MODEL ATTIRE
The attire we’re looking for in this category is women’s active sports apparel—in particular, active tank top/sports bra, shorts, and training shoes of your choice to complement the rest of your attire. Jewelry should complement the physique and not distract from it. Please, no necklaces or bracelets. Small earrings, rings, and wedding bands are permitted. Remember, you’re being judged on your physique. The tank top/sports bra and shorts need to complement your physique. Therefore, baggy tops and shorts are not recommended. Attire needs to be worn in good taste with no torn materials or holes. Keep it classy!
In this category, judges will be looking for an athletic, toned look, but still present a shapely feminine physique. This category is for fit, photogenic contestants who display even shape and symmetry combined with a toned look and overall condition. Proportionate muscles and an overall conditioned physique are ideal. Muscular balance and defined abs are key to overall assessment. A well-proportioned, tanned, healthy-looking physique is the desired presentation. Stage presence is important as attractiveness, poise, and self-confidence are easily detected by the judges and audience, which may affect your overall marketability and placing. Hair and makeup should complement the total presentation.
- Judges will consist of industry personalities and influencers, so bring your best to the stage … you just never know who could be evaluating you.
- Contestants will walk out and be introduced individually where they will be able to pose and turn however they choose.
- Once all contestants have been introduced they will be called forward to complete front and back poses for judging and comparisons.
- In general, judges will be looking for a healthy, fit, photogenic physique. The judging will involve critiquing toned bodies that display desired conditioning, symmetry, body shape, complexion, poise and overall presentation for the category being judged. A healthy tan is highly recommended to allow both the judges and audience to see the physique under bright lights, as is having an even skin tone for overall presentation.
- Attire must complement the contestants physique. It must be worn in good taste with no tears or holes.
- Keep posing and presentation in good taste. Posing in a provocative or overly sexual manner will be frowned upon and result in a lower placing.
