Dawn look a like contest 2005

Im sure there are tons of repeat dawn contestants on here, but curious about first timers to the contest too. Each year Ive been in it the number grows and grows and grows! Its so much fun to get to be a goddess for a night and walk that fabulous catwalk with so many beautiful girls.

So whose all gonna be there?

I've promised people for about five years that I would enter, and this will be the first time I actually make good on the promise.

Reminds me, I have to look at the contest process stuff so I'm not scrambling at the last stinky minute.

Mmm. Tips are good. And these were some nifty ones to boot. Timewise, it's reminenscent of Masquerade stuff...

...I REALLY have to think about the shoes (or lack thereof) I am going to be considering for my idea..

Oops! The link Demmie has on her tips page that's supposed to go to my page is for the old location. Here's the new one.

At any rate, we always welcome new blood to the contest. It's a lot of fun, which is why we do it year after year. Looking forward to seeing your interpretation of Dawn!

Thank you dear *chuckle* I think of new blood and I think of when I was Dawned-up for the blood drive at SDCC. Hehe.

We'll see how it all goes. The idea is in my head now....next stop is the execution.

This will be the first time I will enter the Dawn Contest. I have my outfit planned out, in fact I am making it for one of my projects in Advance clothing. I would love to meet everyone who will be in the contest.

Dragoncon is the only con (that I know of) that has the annual Dawn-contest, and I enjoyed it last year, since it was my first-time watching this kind of event at (my first) D-con. The costumes looked great, and there were a lot of original (and interesting) costumes, and I managed to get some pictures of the ladies onstage, and then most of them when they did the cat-walk posing in front of all these photographers afterwards, and then I got a few pictures of some after that outside the auditorium or upstairs in the hotel lobby.

That said, when I return to Dragoncon 2005, I probably won't WATCH the Dawn contest, but wait until it's over and then take pictures when they parade across the catwalk, and then try to get pictures afterwards. Reason being is that there are a lot of cosplayers who hang out in the lobby upstairs while the contest is going on, and I missed that. There are even DAWN cosplayers who couldn't/chose not to enter the contest who wear their costumes in the lobby, and I managed to get some of those while waiting for the results of the contest. So I'll probably be wandering in & out of the contest looking for cosplayers, but also try to get pics of the Dawn cosplayers.

Dany: Awww.. thanks! But that might be within a couple of months, since I'm already at 70,000+ pictures and I've got a LOT of cons before D-con 2005 comes.. And you know I want to break my record of 5100 pictures from AX2004!

I can't wait to see all the Dawn cosplayers at D-con, and hopefully a lot of members here will be entering, and look for me before/afterwards so I may take your pictures!!

So it might be a bit delayed. But it's definitely a thought

You know I usually stumble across you eventually. Without giving too much away on what I'm doing, I'll be pretty bright-colored, so I shouldn't be hard to miss

2004 was my first year as a contestant, and it was a last min decision to enter since I hadn't finished the costume I had intended to enter. However this year (I hope) it should be finished in time to enter. Either way I'll be there one way or another, contestant or not, to appriciate my fellow goddesses, because as others have said here... it's nice to be a goddess for a day, very VERY nice. I'm definatly looking forward to it.
