Please forgive any duplication . . . I am sending this Costume Walkabout
notice to several groups (Lady M).
IT'S APRIL!!!! The Steampunk Costume Walkabout and Steampunk
Costume Competition IS SO ON!!!!!
Because of time restraints (after all, this IS a one-woman operation) .
. . the costume competition categories have been combined so that ANYONE
and EVERYONE who wishes to participate can become a contestant! (There
were many of you that were not sure which category you would fit into.)
To enter the Steampunk Costume Competition you still have to provide
information about your attire/costume. When you check in on Saturday,
April 16th, you will receive a "competition goodie bag". All
attendees/visitors to the Walkabout/Antique Show will be given tickets
to place in the competitor's bag whom they choose as a "best
costume" then at the competition time our announcer (The
Voice of the North County Fair) will call each contestant and read their
descriptions (the contestant will model their creation), then the
contestants with the most tickets (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) will be
announced! Should there be a "tie" (or a Steammie hissy fit),
well, that's what Frank! of Collector Magazine and my Steampunk
judges are for! But really, my fellow steammies, I need a headcount of
contestants so I can have plenty of competition bags, tickets and
I wish to thank those who have submitted to enter the competition (a
good selection!). I have a few STEAMTOTS on my roster . . . these little
folks are CUTE!!! For those reluctant or procrastinating to enter the
competition . . . First Prize is $100 (cash) + prizes! (This may not
seem like a lot, but I would be happy with it); Second Prize is $50.00
(cash) + prizes and Third Prize is PRIZES!!!! STEAMTOTS - PRIZES!!!!
(Sorry, what would a 10-year old or younger do with a handful of
money?????) Ready to sign-up and get yours? For details visit:
> or send an
email with your information to RSVP@...
> and put "Steampunk
Competition" in the subject line.
With that mouthful out of the way . . . I am asking for "ticket
walkers" to help give out tickets at the front gate to attendees of
the Antiques Show. If anyone is interested (my stars I hope so!),
please contact me at: Ladymari@...
> and put "Ticket Walker"
in the subject line.
Don't worry my wonderful Costume Walkers! The Costume Walkabout
Raffle is alive and well! Like always, there will be shopping
certificates, movie passes, gidgets, gadgets, hatwear and knick-knacky
wonders to behold!!
Remember: Attending the Costume Walkabout means many, many KODAK
MOMENTS! So don't forget to shine up, wind up, gear up, and be
prepared to STRUT YOUR STUFF!
The time to RSVP is still open! Show your support to Gaslight
Gathering! Send up some smoke signals, put on your Saturday best and
COME WALK WITH US!
Creator and Coordinator of Lady Mari's Costume Walkabout
P.S. I will be at the Escondido Renfare
> this Saturday (4/2)
with the San Diego Costume Guild (at their absolutely fantabulous
encampment!). Please come on down and visit! See you there!
