At long last, the Winkie Convention Costume Pictures!

Well, it's taken longer than I anticipated, but here they are. First off, just to get it out of the way, here's me as Kermit the Frog as the Scarecrow in The Muppets' Wizard of Oz:

And here's the group shot of characters from The Tin Woodman of Oz

From left to right: Chopfyt, Mrs. Yoop, Polychrome as a canary, the blue rabbit, Woot as a green monkey

And now for the prize winners. First, here are the Knutson kids in their Hogwarts robes, playing the twister (he's very good at spinning around) and the Wizard. They tied for best kid's costume.

Susan Hall's always wonderful Glinda costume, which I gather she's now going to retire. She won for best adult costume.

The extremely wonderful cosstume my co-conspiritor, Karyl Carlson, came up with as Miss Piggy as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, which won Honorable Mention.

And finally, the first ever Winkie Costume Best of Show, the Hollister family as Princess Langwidere and four of her extra heads.

As has been the case in recent years, the number of participants has been small, but creative and enthusiastic. Maybe next year we'll see a lot more good stuff!
