Ladies or Gentlemen also may also participate in this year's contest in the, "Other Beautiful Bustle Dresses" category (this is a broad spanding category to also include couples (with the entrant wearing a bustle gown), groups of 3 or more (with the entrant or more wearing a bustle gown), artistic/ alternate bustle dress, humorous, or unusual bustle gowns, or bustle dresses just not fitting into the other categories, such as a paper bustle gown, etc. Go wild, but respectable...please just keep in mind-- we are a family friendly site, so please enter only presentable outfits to be accepted into the contest.). However, the person entering the contest must follow the rules and guidelines for the ladies... so, if they choose themselves as the model for a bustle gown entry- (and not using a dress mannequin, or female model-) the entrant (or, himself if the case applies) must be wearing the bustle dress to enter that specific bustle gown into the contest.
