The Time Has Come.....

for Miss Ginger to reveal her costume! And it's about time! It's all about time! Because Miss Ginger was:







A cuckoo bird in a cuckoo clock!!!
This is actually the back side of the costume, but Miss G made her entrance backwards so it is what the audience saw first. Initially the door was closed, and when Miss rocked from side to side the pendulum swung. Then, at the sound cue, the door opened for the cuckoo to pop out, and a confetti cannon fired feathers all over the ball floor. The timing of this photo is perfect because you can see the smoke and feathers from the cannon! Then on the next sound cue:

Miss G turned to reveal the bird itself! The backpiece and outfit went through many (many) rennovations in the last 24 hours, and not everything turned out exactly the way Miss G planned, but the crowd didn't seem to mind and roared with enthusiasm. Many people stopped Miss G after the ball and the pursuant after-parties to tell her that her costume was their favorite!




At the end of the ball, King 38 Robert and Queen 38 Kaylynn took their final walk, and King 39 Ray and Queen 39 Billy were crowned.
Now Ball 39 is just a memory, and we all rest for as long as we can stand it, until we just have to start planning Ball 40! It takes a full year to pull this off, so we'd better not rest too long!

WOW!!! You did not disappoint, Miss G! That is amazing! I was wrong about Foghorn Leghorn, but I was on the right track with a bird!

It sounds like a great time, and maybe we'll get to see some party pics...?

Hugs, Beth

Miss G! Wow ! What a idea. I had to read your post again, because I though you said you flashed the bird! I came close to the guess of a bird,but didn't expect a clock! It looks great girl! Take care!

PS Miss G- I didn't know if you saw it, but in the first picture I love the woman in the front row in blue who is covering her mouth in awe over the feather expolosion! Thats just funny. Great job!

KR: The face was kinda scary now that I've seen it in the pictures! DD: It weighed a ton! I'm "known" as the "size queen" in the Krewe for my big costumes, but I went too far this time! That was too big to carry- I should have had it roll! Miss A: They are actually pink crocs sprayed painted yellow because I couldn't find yellow ones! I needed a shoe I could step into!
