Mars Society Costume Contest
- Hello All:
Well, for a first time event, it was admittedly small. Then again, with
all the other stuff happening, I guess that wasn't too much of a
I would say we had about a dozen people in total, and four contestants.
I was the MC for the event, and Bill tells me that someone in the
audience thought I was a "natural" MC.
The four contestants were a guy in a full helmet space suit in yellow
rather than white with a plastic box with small fans as the backpack, a
jumpsuited pilot, sexy robot, and a woman who put some clothes
together. The blouse was something that she found with a nice artistic
design on it.
The jumpsuited pilot is a buddy/former sweetheart of mine. He made the
jumpsuit some years ago when he wanted to do a project with pockets. He
doesn't consider himself a costumer, but when he decides that he wants
to make something, he does a quality job of it. He also did puffy
sleeves on dresses for a college theater production, and a plaid vest
where he matched up all the plaids correctly.
