  1. Indeed all! Just checked the dates. Hubby and I will for sure be in Vegas the same weekend. We arrive on the 20th and head home on the 25th. So if anyone is game - would love to meet for some fun!
  2. Hey all! Looks like pure circumstance but hubby and I will be in Vegas the same weekend as the penthouse party. We will be staying at our time share at the Marriott Grand Chateau. Would love to get together with anyone go lunch /dinner /drinks whatever.
  3. Way to go Lizzy! Beautiful video as I have already told you. Nice work everyone! And thanks to the contest organizers for all your efforts. Cheers! Kitty
  4. All the entries are terrific! But, is there a video #6? There is no place to vote for this one. Also, there is a message that says the video is blocked. I've seen YouTube do this sort of thing before. It will show up as blocked for some, but not everyone. If there is indeed a 6th video, you might want to suggest to the owner that they upload it to Vimeo. They are much more forgiving, and have better viewing quality as well. I just want to make sure I've seen all the vids before voting. Thanks!
  5. Hooray, Lizzy! You did it! I sent both a download and a YouTube link. See Post #1 for info. I put my name on mine. Never thought to ask. DOH! Hope I didn't goof. And Mel - SO glad to hear you put something together, too. Can't wait to see what everyone has done!
  6. :tantrum: :funnyface: Hello! Anyone there??? Anyone else entering the contest? Sure hope so. One week to finish up!
  7. I SO wish I could attend this year! But alas, not in the cards... However, I can recommend another exceptional source for masks. I have actually purchased two masks from this guy myself at the Texas Renaissance Festival, and I can totally vouch for the workmanship and quality. These are pricey, but they are truly works of art. The artist manufactures them out of molded leather. They are individually hand painted and are extremely comfortable to wear. And he has some totally INCREDIBLE designs! Check out his website! Mask Parade Website These are the two masks I have purchased, and I plan to buy another when I visit the Renaissance Festival this fall. They are AWESOME!
  8. Sending my entry now. SQUEE!!
  9. Whew! I am ALMOST finished. I have a few bits to clean up, and then I'll be ready to enter. Anyone else? Not too late to get started! Looking forward to seeing everyone's work. Meow!
  10. I FINALLY got started today. It took me 8 FRAKKING HOURS just to do the darned title/intro sequence! Still learning as I go... I am excited to see the other entries! As I said before, this theme is really quite a challenge! I'm curious to see what angles others have found to do it justice. I am such a nerd! I LOVE vidding, even if I'm not very good at it! Still kicking myself that I can't make it to Vegas his year. Hubby and I have a trip planned to Lake Tahoe the week AFTER the convention. I just can't justify jetting off to Nevada two weeks in a row. If only I was independently wealthy... Alas!
  11. Yipes! The deadline is getting close! It took a while, but I FINALLY found a song I like. This is a tough theme! So, now I've got the music. Now I just need to figure out the video part of it. Easy, right?? NOT! I hope I can get something together for you ladies. I SO wish I could be in Vegas for the convention this year. Alas, not in the cards. **sniff**
  12. Thanks to Elissa for giving me the heads up! I'll see if I can come up with something. I haven't made a video in ages, so maybe it's time I got off my butt! Cheers! kitty
  13. I saw Machine Gun Preacher on Thursday at an advance screening in Houston. The theater was packed and they had to turn people away. We started lining up at about 4:30 pm for the show at 7:30. Anyone who arrived after 6:00 was pretty much out of luck for a seat. I thought the film was terrific! What a powerful and emotional story! Gerry really immersed himself in this role. He WAS Sam Childers! It's an incredible accomplishment to be able to capture the roller coaster of emotions that Sam must have gone through and to make that so believable. Gerry has done some work here that I think he can truly be proud of. If it doesn't win him an Oscar, he should at the very least be recognized for the talent he has. So many of us have known it all along, but I think that now so many more will see that Gerry is a truly gifted actor. The story is difficult. This is a hard film to watch, with some graphic scenes that may make you turn away. The plight of these children will rip your heart out. But sometimes reality isn't a pretty thing. The story had to be told with all it's grisly details. Despite what some critics are saying, I think the film is very good. I will be going back to see this again for sure. Can't wait to read others' reactions to the film.
  14. As I thought, this is a hoax. See this info from Winter Is Coming.net - http://winter-is-coming.net/ Too bad.
  15. I may check in from time to time. Wish I could be there, but alas - knee surgery only a month ago. Next year!!
  16. I never understood how to find my way around NOLA until I finally had to drive a car around there. Once you understand that the streets all pretty much follow the bends in the river, it's not that hard to navigate around there. Personally, I find San Antonio MUCH more confusing! I'm going to be in New Orleans in about two weeks for a long weekend. I will have my GB radar up, but I'm not holding my breath. I never have any luck in that regard. We shall see...
  17. Discretion is always a wise thing on the web. NEVER share any personal information on a forum! Not this one or any one! Do it privately. You may think only friends are looking in here, but some people are not so nice. On another board where I moderate, it astounds me how many times I have to remind members to not post email addresses, phone numbers and street addresses. Pretty sad how some people twist things around to get their jollies.
  18. is cheating on Gerry with Dave Gahan. Woot & drool...!!!

  19. I remember the original RUG auctions. Wish I had the money then, too! I do know for a fact, though, that some of the most prized of Gerry's costume pieces, including the Red Death mask and the gloves he wore in the rooftop scene, ended up in the very good hands of a devoted fan and friend of mine, to be treasured and not resold. I hope, as others have expressed, that the current costumes find worthy owners as well.
  20. It really is a shame that the collection is being sold off. But please remember that Susan Heath's original intent to buy such a large number of costumes from POTO was an attempt to keep them together and to try and mount a traveling display, or to find a museum partner to house them in some sort of permanent display. She went to considerable expense to not only make the original purchase, but also to store and maintain the collection in museum quality condition. I'm sure there are economic reasons that are forcing her to sell her collection, and I would bet it breaks her heart to have to do so. I do think there are enough dedicated fans and memorabilia collectors out there who will rescue these treasured items and will give them good homes. I, too, wish they would end up intact as a set and be available for the public to share. But sadly, as Susan found, this is an expensive dream. It is truly unfortunate, but try not to be so hard on her. Just my two cents...
  21. I saw Susan's collection in 2008 as well. I feel so fortunate! Dr. Em contacted me earlier today, asking about some videos of the costumes that I shot of the collection when I was at the GALS 2008 convention. I sent her the links, but thought I'd save her the trouble and post them myself. The lighting in Susan's house was very subdued, and I did not have a light attachment for my camera, so the quality is not that great. However, you can see the costumes and the lovely display that Susan had them arranged in. I tried to focus on some of the details in the fabrics and trims. The whole collection is incredible! I mixed my home video with scenes and music from the film, to showcase where the various articles are used. I had posted these videos a long time ago, and they're still out on YouTube if you'd like to take a look. Oh, and you'll see Texas Gramma, Lady Elissa, and Elissa's daughter, Erin, too! Enjoy!
  22. He told his Lolita story. And looks FABULOUS!
