So as most of you all know September marks our 10th birthday!
With six members entering there was a wide range of ideas, colours and textures including feathers and tie die.
Like all semi organised competitions there was judging criteria
- Costume must be appropriate for a range of gigs
- Is the costume uniqueness
- Does it have the Pop/wow factor
- How practicality is the costume, and can it be used with a range of toys.
- Finishing, will it last more then one performance and does it look complete?
Although it was not required some members also had a background story to their costume.
Check out some of the photos and hopefully we can pull of another competition like this in the future.
Do you have a costume idea?? Give it a go!
|Ben with his fantastic stilt pants! Stenciled shirt and finer detail done to the jacket. |
A practical costume that can be used for all manner of roaming gigs for almost all crowds.
Plus he can still whip it, whip it real good.
|It started off as an explosion of colour...|
|And resulted in Carolyn's rainbow experience. Works incredibly well with that stunning contact ball |
If you look super close check out that colourful mask.
|Both contact juggling and poi friendly! Versatile.... tick!|
|No matter what angle you look at this, the general agreement is this is a heck of a mess!|
|But resulted in something like a candy cane.|
|A multipurpose candy cane at that!|
All the feathers and pompoms!
|Add his massive fire axe and this guy is |
a force to be reckoned with!
|Our own Harlequin! Impressive amount of fabric paint used on this one and|
our over all winner receiving a Home of Poi Voucher!
Detail right down to the shoes.
|Some say crazy cat lady... I say cat enthusiast.|
Cleopatra themed, this costume had detail from the necklace to the cat ears!
