Midwest Ouji-sama Pageant

The Midwest Ouji-Sama Pageant is a Day Two event that celebrates the classy J-Fashion style known as Ouji and the fabulous people who wear it.

The Contest

 Pageant Contestants, wearing their finest Ouji ensembles, will compete in three categories:

Q&A Session
Prospective princes will be judged on their wit, merit, and words as they are questioned on their worthiness.
Coordinate Competition

Our princes will parade their finest looks and dazzle the crowd with impeccable ouji style, but looks alone won't win the crown.

Woo a Princess

Can our princes woo the heart of a princess? They will be judged on their originality, class, and charm as they show off their penchant for romance.

To the Winner Go the Spoils

The winner will earn the title of Midwest Ouji-sama 2019, as well as a crown, sash, certificate, and a ticket to our 2020 event. One runner up will receive a certificate and gift.

Judges of Style, Charm and Character

Our special guest judges, along with votes from VIP ticket holders will determine the Crown Prince of the Midwest.
