Not sure where to post this but decided here....Sooooo....I just got home from my first feis in a new organization and didn't do too bad (3 firsts and 3 seconds). For the new organization I couldn't wear my solo dress in the level I was competing so I had on a plain black skirt and plain polo shirt and wore my regular bun wig...Apparently accourding to some of the parents at this feis I was dressed "showy and glamorous". One of the other girls I dance with was standing at the concession stand to get food after we were all done and overheard 2 moms standing behind her talking badly about me. They talked about the fact that I was the "new girl" and was really old and shouldnt have been allowed to compete because of my age...I competed in over 12s and over 13s and I'm 25...Then they started in on my attire and said that the only reason I won was because of my "showy" costume and not because I was good at dancing. As I said before I had on a plain old skirt and polo...how in the world that is showy I don't know, I didn't even have on a school costume!! Hahaha! And it's not like I choose the age groups, I went in the one for my age! I find it quite hilarious that these women were so jealous of me beating the kids in their school that the only things they could come up with for why I shouldn't have won was becasue of my age and my clearly not fancy costume being too glamorous! Way to go moms! I just had to get that off my chest, sorry for ranting on so much...but needed to share. Any one else had anything like this happen? Oh and you should know I danced in the same level equivalent I was in in my old organization in the new one, so it wasn't like I started at the bottom after my years of dancing. I guess people are the same no matter where you go!
