Thanks for a successful Viennese Masked Ball Costume Walkabout
- Please forgive any duplication . . . I am sending this notice to several
groups and organizations.
THE SALUTE TO VIENNA NEW YEAR'S DAY MASKED BALL COSTUME
WALKABOUT WAS SENSATIONAL!!! I am sure that everyone has seen the
marvelous photo ops that were taken at the event. What a great way to
start the 2013 Costume Walkabout Season!!!
Yes, 2012 was the year of the Costume Walkabout season! Please check
the Costume Walkabout <http://www.costumewalkabout.com/> website for
the upcoming events and RSVP deadlines. It is highly suggested that you
join the Costume Walkabout Yahoo Group to keep up with news, events,
updates and all around chit-chat between the walkers about what
they're wearing, who is wearing what and go ahead and wear it!
The Costume Walkabout is expanding! www.costumewalkabout.com
With email address: info@...
Always send your RSVPs for an event to: RSVP@...
<mailto:RSVP@...> and include the name of the event
you are RSVP'ing to attend. At all of my costume walkabouts, the
RSVPs require a contact individual's name and email and name of your
guest(s). (Sometime later this year, I will be using an online service
to collect RSVP information.)
And don't forget our yahoogroup:
Next There are wonderful photos that have been posted about this
walkabout!!!!!! I want to thank Jerry Abuan for being the "official
photographer" for all my Costume Walkabouts. His website is stuffed
with absolutely wonderful photos http://jerryabuan. zenfolio. com
<http://jerryabuan.zenfolio.com/> of previous walkabouts and other
events throughout San Diego and southern California. In addition, I
wish to thank Debbie Boyd and several other walkers that contributed
their photo memories of this event! (These photo links are on the
Costume Walkabout Yahoo group.)
The San Diego Symphony Marketing and Promotions Department was bubbling
over to bursting when they announced, that due to their social
promotions of the Symphony series which includes information and details
about the Costume Walkabout they have successfully sold out on
several of their concerts. They accredit this with the spectacular
costumes and wonderful atmosphere and ambiance that the walkers provide
and the interaction they genuinely enjoy with the Symphony concert
attendees! I want again to add my personal thanks, that without such
wonderfully artistic and fun-to-walk-with walkers . . . my Costume
Walkabout would not be the "Class Act" that it is now known for.
Don't put your costumes and dress-up attire away just yet, we still
have the remainder of the San Diego Symphony 2012-2013 Series to walk as
well as the upcoming Del Mar Costume Walkabout
<http://www.calendarshows.com/> (Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves) and, I am
told, we WILL have costume walkabouts at the Symphony's Summer Pops
events at the Embarcadero. But more wonderful venues to walk are
definitely in our future, so if you hear/know of any venues, events,
organizations that may be interested in having a Costumed Walkabout.
Please drop me an email (or a Yahoogroup message) with as much
show/event information/contact(s) as you have. I will make a call, pay
a visit and get it on!
In addition to "Getting all dressed up and having somewhere to
go". . . one of the objects of the walkabout is to expose local
Fandom groups, costume and play-related conventions/businesses and
upcoming events to potential new customers/members. So, I wish to thank
the following groups/members for their wonderful participation in the
2012 Costume Walkabouts (if I miss any group . . . email me and I will
