  • OT; That gala thing again.

    It was that time of year again. This year the gala's theme was Middle Earth, so Lord of the Rings/ Hobbity. That's not quite my thing, but I thought I might be able to have some fun. Amongst other things I built that ten foot tall ent that many of you saw. Strangely, I don't seem to have taken many pictures of the interior. The event was a success and for the second year in a row raised roughly a quarter million dollars, which for a 300 seat event in a town this small is really good.

    Anyway, some pics.

    It's a shame the band ruined the floor/backdrop combination with their banner, but oh, well it was fun making the dance floor a molten sea of lava anyway.

    My costume.

        I know how much work you put into the gala so it's great to see the results.
        Congratulations on raising so much money for a good cause.

          I love how your shirt looks like chain mail, at a glance.
          Fab work, my friend!

            You've done a magnificent job as usual Henry and lots of money raised for a good cause as a result. Your outfit looks great too, sort of middle earth chic casual. What I really love though, is this vacant stare, I can see the fatigue from all the hard work and the relief of having got it done, all in that one look.

              Thanks guys! It is exhausting work but the payoff for the hospital and our city are pretty hard to ignore. I also thoroughly enjoy presenting myself a new challenge each year.

              I admit I could hardly keep the beard on long enough for the event. It was gone almost as fast as the wig was.

              So...this afternoon Mrs. K and I have to meet the committee for drinks. The recruiting drive for us begins anew.

                Wait...that's a wig???
                I thought the beard was fake!

                  Only the beard was real. I picked very carefully and got a synthetic wig that closely resembled what my hair looks like when long.
                  I think I could potentially use ot for at least two more costumes, should I choose. With that wig and beard I could pull off Dolph :Lundgren's Street Preacher from Johnny Mnemonic. When the food came I had to pull the hair back. With it like that and a fake belly I could really pull off Fat Thor from The Avengers.
