We Need Your Help!

As an added feature of the Art Show this year, we are trying to put together a retrospective of all the Best of Show costumes from all 16 Keycons. What we're lacking are the Best of Show winners for the years 1986, 1989, 1997, and 1999. We also need confirmation of who won in 1987: Barb Schofield and Martin Miller for Ghosts of the French Revolution, or Pedro Bedard for Samurai Armour.

We are looking only for Best of Show costumes. If you have any information or still photos, please contact Michelle Cook at 772-5170 ASAP - especially if you are a Best in Show winner who has not yet been contacted.

Status Report
