Costume College part 2 - Thursday Night Pool Party

I got to the hotel early and after a little socializing I went over to the exhibit room to set up my Cersei birds dress for display.  My roomie Alyxx got to display her amazing Beast costume from a few years ago.



Thursday night is the official start of costume college with a pool party.  This years theme was It's a Mod, Mod, Mod, Mod World so there was a lot of awesome 1960s wear, sadly I only took a few pictures.

Alyxx   and Kim



Twila nailed it as Grace Slick from her American Bandstand appearance in 1967


And Jen


I had plans for a totally different costume but in my haste to finish other things that fell through and I went to my fall back - 1960s Star Trek.  The dress is from Anovos and I can't say enough good things about it.  It's fun, comfy and sexy.  I tried to do a sort of 60s style make up, had a TOS tricorder prop and put a bump-it in my hair.
