Instead of having a traditional, discipline-based performance class list, this show challenged entrants to come up with performance entries based on seven open-ended prompts.
Most people remember this as the show where Jackie Rossi debuted her giant, killer robot...
and I showed a sixteen model parade entry that took up an entire table.
However, those were just two of the day's many amazing and creative entries.
I really love this kind of performance class list, which is probably why I have enjoyed the Shelter & Share Challenge and April Photo Challenge so much. For all intents and purposes, this is themed, live show performance showing at home, a perfect distraction for this long month of forced isolation.
That said, neither of today's photos are particularly performance-y. The prompt for the April Photo Challenge was "Marguerite Henry Model." I'd already used a picture of my Stormy models with Stormy Misty's Foal for "Model From a Book," so I wanted to do something that looked substantially different. I tried photographing Misty standing on top of A Pictorial Life Story of Misty. That was acceptable. It met the requirements of the prompt, but there was no degree of difficulty and certainly no Wow Factor.
I am all about Wow Factor, so I went back and tried again. This is the same model with the same book, but I like this image a lot better.
It reminded me of the time I made a million little candy packets for a Candyland jump.
Or that other time when I made a thousand snails
to torment Erin for the Rocky Mountain Spring Fling Outhouse class.
