This reminds me of a story. Last year, my friends and I attended The Wizard of Oz showing, and seeing as though I had a Dorothy Halloween costume tucked in the back of my closet from college, I thought it would be fun to dress the part. I donned my little gingham dress and shiny red shoes, and off to the Orpheum we went. All of the little boys and girls were in awe of me, asking their parents if I was the real Dorothy. This was sweet and touching, sure, until the announcer called the costumed attendees to the stage for a costume contest. A WHAT?!?! I had not signed up for this. You see, I do not participate in costume contests on large stages in front of packed Orpheums. But my entire section was cheering me on, and the little ones thought I was Dorothy in the flesh, and my friends were practically pushing me out of my seat, so I had to. I was really given no choice. Jax walked me down to the stage and sat in the front row, my number one supporter, while I smiled and curtsied in front of a sea of faces. A large sea, mind you. The winner was determined based on crowd applause, and I somehow made it to the final three. I placed either second or third, I really can’t remember now, as the mind tends to block out traumatic experiences. As it turns out, I survived relatively unscathed and ended up having a great time, but beware, if you come dressed in character, there will be consequences!
