the Photo Shoot
(Note: Photo intensive page - Duh! - Loads slow)

We all have some costumes that have never been documented or we only have bad photos of them. So we decided to have a photo shoot where everyone could bring those costumes and have them photographed by some of the Guilds best amateurs.  

We did this once before in a professional's studio but the results were less than thrilling. This time it was held in the Mai's backyard on May 19th, 2001. The backyard was fairly lush (lot's of good green backdrops) but not yet overgrown. The day was a little warm, but it worked out okay with everyone changing in the air-conditioned indoors. And since there was some shade, no one suffered too much.

Except maybe Sue in that leather dress.
