Yes. This includes all branded items, beachwear, apparel, ect.
No, you may only purchase 1 suit per scene. If you are dying to walk twice in 1 scene, email Karah@acbikinis.com for approval and she will do her best attempt to make it possible.
Make sure you both order the same listings. Every listing has a 4 or 5 character label associated with it. The group walks typically have 4 available. For example, if you both order SHG1, you will walk together. If one of you orders SHG1 and the other orders SHG2 you will not walk together.
Angel Competition Bikinis average suit price is $350 and ranges from $250-$675. Angel Fashion Show models get 20% off.
NO. Do NOT order your Angel Fashion Show suit yet. You will be required to purchase a new suit for the 2020 Angel Fashion Show. Each scene and model walk is choreographed with specific lights, music, and accessories (accessories will be rented by ACBikinis for free with your suit purchase). It is required to purchase a new suit to ensure the highest quality of the brand and creative element of the scene.
If you are ordering a suit that comes with accessory rental from Angel Competition Bikinis, you may not customize your crystal design, fabric color or crystal color. If you insist, we can most likely honor your small request like swapping out a crystal color for another crystal color as long as it matches the scene. If you have a request, write it in your notes and we will only contact you if it is not possible.
If you are ordering a Design You Own Accessory suit you may customize every part of your suit to match the accessory you are creating. We will have some loose guidelines per scene as to what colors will match.
Possibly. Write your change request in the order notes area. If it is a big change like changing the crystal design to a design with more crystals (ex. Angel Pro to Crystal Radiance) we will invoice you the extra. We will honor most changes if they are not drastic and will not affect the quality of the scene.
Yes, you can choose to pay for your suit through Sezzle which allows you to make payments. Read more about Sezzle on the bottom of our main FAQ page here.
Yes, you may only purchase 6 different suits for the Angel Fashion Show. Every suit you purchase will specify the scene, approximate time, and other specific details about the walk. We will open up the lineup mid February and ensure every model has placed their first order before we allow models to purchase a 2nd suit.
Most models choose to walk 1-2 times in a solo walk and 1-2 times in a group walk. Some first time models only choose to walk 1 time in a group walk and sometimes they wish to walk as much as possible.
Every suit is paired with a time slot and scene. This information will be on our website that you will be able to access prior to your purchase. Accessories will be provided with a free rental from Angel Competition Bikinis.
Yes.A spray tan is required for the Angel Fashion Show. The stage lights will really wash you out and you will need a dark spray tan similar to what you have on the competition stage.

(Typical show services can be $150 for makeup alone. This service includes both hair and makeup.

The Angel Fashion Show it to showcase suits worn by athletic females. Your body should reflect that of a confident, fit, and athletic female. You DO NOT need to be stage lean for the fashion show. The most important look your body should is CONFIDENT on stage! There will be a mix of stage lean, almost stage lean, and off season physiques.
Posing for the Angel Fashion Show will be different than NPC posing - think glamorous, fun, confident, and showing your personality.

If tumbling, please do so at your own risk. You will each have around 20-30 seconds on stage per outfit, 30 seconds sounds short, but feels pretty long once you time it.
