States, good ol' States.

Lauren and Chrissy at some sort of ... hmm ... mask workshop. Or ... trying on masks at the vendor room ... or something.

States is a time of workshops, competitions, great scenes ... and texting. Lots and lots of texting. And iPhone playing.

Three people, three motivations.

EVERY single day in the park was beautiful weather, nice food, and outstanding company. One day there was even live music!

Are my lips really that big? (covers lips self-consciously)

Co-Sponsor Miss Taylor is looking happy and jaunty as she walks to lunch through the streets of Tampa.

Rumor has it that at the abandoned overpass, if you say "Mark Vicciardo" three times with your eyes closed, his ghost will appear in pink ....


Rosie, in a look of irritated yoga meditation.

There's ole Dutch Sarah again.

Kasey, wearing the "Prudence" nametag that Karly made for her. She made ribbons for all of us. I was "Little Susie." Thanks.

The most threatening picture I think I've ever seen.

Karly, after having been threatened by Tori within an inch of her life.

The same guitar guy we saw last year. He's real nice about having his picture taken.

Lindsay, rehearsing for her Monologue event.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to lunch we go. Again. (whistle whistle whistle)

zomg! Lauren got a Superior on her Costume Construction!

We met the authors of "Dinner With the MacGuffins" AND "Hard Candy." Both of them!

Styling for the last night, which is always dress-up day.

Everybody looks elegant.

We also saw "The Wedding Singer." It was our first mainstage we've seen in a long time. Good fun!

Modern version of "The Monkees" opening song.

Chanel's like "Heyyyy!" and Lauren's all "whoaaaaa"

And then Mark's all "Hey let me get in the picture" and Lauren and Chanel are like "Well okay."

Tie-dye party in th' house.

Dance party!

A good time was had by all. END.
