Great to see you back Mariet. Yes I did enter the costume in the contest. On note to the car
Mike and I talked & did a lot of walking around. Come the evening he had to leave for the night to visit a friend in the hospital. I went to the costume contest ...I wish I could have taped it, plus had sound during taping.
It took a while to find out where I should be in line due to it was much easier to see people in line competing in group rather than solo entries. A staff member had me line up behind ...I forget what his costume was supposed to be, all I know is it looked cool and more than once I feared his helmet poking one of my eyes out. The costume is shown in Starfest video 2. The solo entries showed off on stage before the groups and almost every body did some kind of performance. All of these were entertaining ..not sure how it's spelled but one person in the span of a minute said the whole of an Anime TV series. One guy dressed as Wolverine preformed like he was fighting. I felt I had to invent a performance for this, since it wasn't listed on my information card what I costume came from, while spinning my dress lightly around & walking on stage I shouted to the crowd," I died in the 25th century and now I'm in the 21st."
Once going back behind the stage it was time to sit, remember the heels? People could watch the performances viva a giant screen. When the groups came on ..well the next time I watch an episode of Stargate it might be hard to keep a straight face. A group of people dressed in SG-1 costumes performed on stage to Electric Ave. . If you didn't know what this was you'd swear it was the most messed up looking Chinese dragon you've ever seen. Another group dancing about on stage moving around in a Graboid costume. The winner of the group costume contest was a group who in theme did Night at the Museum. For the solo contest I believe the name of the entry was Blood Elf for that winner.
After the contest, yes true I was sitting for a while but my feet were still killing me. I went back to my hotel room for the night.
Photobucket doesn't seem to want to upload without freezing up today. Hopefully in the next post I can show you guys more costumes.
