Just a quick rundown on the winners announced tonight:
- The Winkie Award went to Margaret Koonts. Too bad she's now moved to New York, so she wasn't here to get it. Maybe she can collect it at the Munchkin Convention next month. (No doubt she'll win the Munchkin Award before too long, as well.)
- Madeline Knutson and her brother (whose name I've forgotten, I'm that worn out already) won the children's costume award as, respectively, the Wizard and the cyclone. (Both were dressed in Hogwarts robes, for some reason. I wonder what they'll be doing next Friday at midnight...)
- The adult costume contest winner was Susan Hall as Glinda.
- In an unprecedented move, two extra winners were announced. As Miss Piggy's Wicked Witch of the West from The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, Karyl Carlson was given an Honorable Mention Award.
- And as the Grand Prize winner, Melissa Hollister and some of her family won for their group costume of Princess Langwidere and four of her extra heads.
- Melissa Hollister also won the children's quiz, for the second year in a row. (She was also the only entrant for the second year in a row. To make things even more embarrassing, she hasn't read much Oz.)
- Susan Hall won the adult quiz, on Queen Zixi of Ix.
With the exception of Margaret's plaque, the prizes are yet to be determined...
