Keepers dress-up competition – the first entry
December 11th, 2012
Hooray! I am happy, Miss Mouse is happy, even the dead fish behind the sofa has a smile on its face. We have received the very first entry for the dress-up competition! And it comes from … LOUD DRUM ROLL … Lily, in northern Tasmania!
Thank you, Lily. And I can’t wait to thank everyone else who is on the brink of sending in their own entries. (Is that a broad enough hint? Hm?)
But for now, you’ll be wanting to see what Lily has sent. And it’s extremely interesting. Firstly, it’s a series of photos that tell a story. (If you’ve read the rules here, you’ll already know that a series like this only counts as one entry.) Lily pointed out in her email that these scenes aren’t really from any of the books – it’s more of a random idea she had. (Which is fine by me – it’s the characters that are important in this competition.) And she hasn’t dressed up a lot – the story is more in the acting than the costume. But it’s very effective.
So here we are – entry number one. And I think you’ll all agree that Lily has set a very high standard.
