The Otakon dress was entered as a "day dress" rather than a costume (you're only allowed one entry per category). It received a fourth place ribbon.
The Smithson Gown was entered as a "formal ensemble" and got a third place ribbon.
Diana's "Ocean Goddess" Otakon costume got a third place ribbon.
The tie I made for Bob for his part of the Smithson gala outfit got a second place.
The vest I made for Bob got a first place ribbon!
And I am most proud of my entry in the Accessories department: the diaper bag I made for my neighbor. It took first place AND a Champion ribbon!
Next year I'm determined to enter more items. I had wanted to enter some of the things I made for Diana during the year but completely forgot to ask her to give them to me in time. Oh well! Just another excuse to make more stuff!
