This was the long line to get in.

The Tux was by Men's Wearhouse the Dress by Cattiva of New York.
The necklace, earrings and bracelettes were 'thrown' together by me and my friend
on Thursday when I gave up trying to find something in the stores.
Kev sitting in the main room
watching the Oscars on the big screen.
Isn't he cute??
Joy from Elvish Costumes Gimli
and Legolas, me, and Tammy (Leiasky)
Besides Cat from Alleycatscratch, these were the only people we
found that I knew at the party.

Me with Frodo and Nazgul
Why does taking a picture with a standy always seem like such a great idea at the time?
Kev has a Boromir costume
and we met Thomas at the party.
Turns out we have seen each others work on line.
Me scolding Lurtz for killing Boromir
Little was it known that Kev
won an Oscar for 'Best Husband' that night.
For his self-less and generous donation of his International Most Valuable Employee Award
to the funding of our trip to the LOTR Oscar's Party. And for hanging in there at the party as late as he could
despite feeling miserable. As well as his constant good nature and consistant love and care
of his wife and his children. Kev is the best, and I predict he will win this every year.
Not to mention how he graciously puts up with me and all my costuming nonsense...
I'm not sure who this is,
but I loved her dress because it looks so much
like the Boromir shirt!!

I made the leaves out of wire mesh, wire and sculpty
Then painted them.
This is us just before we
left the party around 10:30....
A week later and we were still fighting the cold we caught that night.
As you can see, we are obviously spent here. *L*
The following are pictures
of me and my friends from LA.
They probably have no interest to most of you, but I wanted to put them up anyway!!
This is Jeff, my friend from
He's rather famous for his Cardio Striptease Aerobic Classes.
Unfortunately I didn't get to take one while we were there...
mostly because I'm a lazy bum.
The more things change, the
more they stay the same.
Prom night all those years ago and our reunion on Oscar's weekend.
I hope Jeff doesn't kill me for posting his high school pic! *heh*
I have no idea why he's holding up three fingers...
Kev, me and Drew Tretick
I met Drew while I was at
Anderson University and he was in the Orchestra playing the
He was always amazing on his electric violin, but just starting out back then.
Now he has numerous CD's and is breaking into the industry.
Drew playing his electric
Violin in Downtown Disney
Drew is still playing there through the end of March.
If you can go, check his schedule and see if you can hear him! He's wonderful.
Drew and some of his fans...
He's the nicest guy I know... honestly. Such a huge heart. Love you Drew!!!
I was delighted to see that
my hand fit Harpo Marx's Print!!!
(If you haven't already, I highly recommend his autobiography 'Harpo Speaks'. I fell in love... great book)
I was going to take my boots and socks off and see if we had the same size feet too,
but I was a bit afraid my feet would be bigger and how embarrassing would that be?
Pretty impressive shoes to fill...
This is looking up at the
Kodak Theatre, where the Oscar's were held the day before.
This is looking down and out
of the Kodak Theatre entrance... so basically the walkway up to
the Oscar's. It was nice... but the King of Prussia Mall is nicer. *heheh*
And here is the door to the actual theatre. I decided to get theatric...
We met someone from the 501st Star Wars Club on duty outside of the Kodak
Meet TK1000. Nice guy... but not too smart for handing me his weapon even
AFTER I told him I was a member of the Rebel Legion. *heheheh*
Wow. A wax museum. We didn't
go in. We did have some yummy treats at "Leather &
Gifts" though, on the far left.
We went into the Snow White Cafe, but they were all out of sweets because of the Oscar's Crowd. :o( So she sent us next door.
The Chinese Theatre. We had
some hours to kill before our flight and were still too sick
to enjoy much walking around so we went in and watched "The Hunted".
Very violent... which is the POINT of the premise. It was carried out successfully,
but it's not my type of movie...
