Excellent photos, all.

Is there one of Karen in there anywhere?

An awful lot of time and effort went into some of those costumes.

An awful lot of corsets.

Rob's shirt needs a volume button.

I really had a good time looking through all your photos Mad! :D Yours too Penners! Love that last one of Terry. And, yes, that was quite a shirt Rob was wearing!

Brill pics Penners! I'd like to point out though, that I wasn't flipping Penners the finger in the second photo of me, it just looked that way :oops:

His legs weren't in the picture - when I clicked the link I had to scroll to get the pertinent desk nameplate to show on screen, hence the note ;)

I missed HIM posing for that one although I had been told about it. :lol:

I'm still working on day 2, having misplaced about thirty or so shots dealing with SF, and a few others. I only realized when I couldn't find the portrait photo of Louise (Kin Arad) that I had put the SF ones in a separate Jpg. file that I accidentally deleted. Fortunately, they were still on my camera so I was able to download them again. Unfortunately, I am just about to go to work but, depending on what shift I have tomorrow, I hope to post these then. :D

Bouncy; I have got a couple of Karen but these are on Day 3 or 4 (not sure which). :D

Btw, I can honestly confirm that Dotsie was not flipping me the finger since she did not know that I was photographing her at the time. ;)

The only one I remember was in the background of the twoflower/rincewind costume... (this is the first time that I think there's been a photo of myself on this forum... there's always a first time for everything) Can't give the exact photo as flash has blocked itself on the computer, but it's from before the drinks reception (that was before the gala dinner)
