While we did debut our costumes in the contest, we did not win :(
See that little lion/tiger thing behind us? It won.
It seems that John was correct, I didn't quite gauge my target audience correctly. Or maybe I should say, the judges were not in my target audience range :) All the teenagers there loved them. But the judges were... confused.
I had taken a photo of Miley Cyrus & Robin Thicke at the VMA's, just in case. Yep, still confused :)
Oh well. Even if the weird little tie-dyed lion / tiger hybrid won, my friends came in 2nd & 3rd:
The Duck (Tolling) Dynasty member & a (Swedish) Minion!
Poor Mesa... :)
And our friend Jodi with Maya & Dezi also won in another costume division:
The 3 amigos
