MIB Spooktacular fun division

The Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show had four divisions, two of which (Halter and Performance - Specialist) were judged on Saturday. Results for the Performance - Consistency and Fun divisions were posted Sunday. Today, I'm once again following Anne Field's lead and focusing on the Fun division.

The first class was "Look Ma, Photoshop!" Since my photoshopping skills are rudimentary at best, I didn't enter this one. The next class was "House Pets." I do have those, so I entered several pictures. This almost five year old shot of my bad cat, Gary, was the winner.
My "Dog Days" photo from the Shelter & Share Photo Challenge placed second.
"Wildin' Out" was the third class in the Fun division. I assumed this was a class for wild animals, so I entered a picture of Jose and Precious. Other people interpreted it differently and entered horses returning to their wild roots. In retrospect, I think that was a better option. Still, this was good enough for sixth.
On to "Barn Love!" I entered four pictures in this class, two old and two new.
The old ones did better, placing third (Tucker) and sixth (Gizette).
"LOL" was another multi-entry class, all of which came from the Shelter & Share Photo Challenge. "Spring Scene" placed fourth... 
and "Hoarders, Buried Alive" was fifth.
The next class was "Colorific." Again, I entered a mix of old and new entries, and again, the old ones did better. "On Wednesday We Wear Pink" was third...
and Jose's Pride month set-up placed fifth.
I almost skipped "Conga Bo Bongo," but Bobbie talked me into entering Dagobert's pandemic conga photo. That was a good call. It placed second.
The Mares in Black class was next. I was so sure I was going to win this one, I wrote an entire post about my entry. Instead, I had to settle for second. Pride goes before a fall and all that. The winning entry was really excellent.
The ninth class, "Spooky Kooky," was - to my surprise - my single best class in the entire show. Bubbles won first place with my brand new Infinity Breyers Co spider costume and Laura Skillern tarantulas.
and Snickers' Halloween candy corn photo was third.
The next class - "Scary Larry" - was also the last. I own a... horse... with that name and he would have been perfect for this event. Unfortunately, I just ran out of time. Maybe next year!
Even though my old photos did better than my new photos, I was quite pleased with my placings in this division. The fun classes really were fun! Thank you, Cynthia Wyatt Briley for judging and congratulations to all the winners.
