It was a small but determined crowd who turned out for the Passport MINI Annual Costume Contest. DCMM President Ali Drew was the first to arrive and was busy turning Tigger into a “Bad S” when my friend Dave and I arrived.
We parked next to her and watched as she plastidipped her design and handily secured the SuckUp Award.
Laura arrived and set up an entire tableau around her MINI.
German pulled in and we all watched in wonder as he began attaching a series of black and yellow Solo cups to his car.
Finally Yana arrived with the cutest contestants of the day! They pulled in with MINI Mouse ears and skirt already attached, which was very impressive! Then they further dazzled the crowd when an entire troupe of Mouseketeers.
The judges wandered through and My Precious was immediately disqualified because of her costume.
The Mouseketeers won a participation prize (and as the cutest competitors, it was highly deserved!)
Dave won an honorable mention prize for his smashing Austin Powers costume.
Ali won the coveted SuckUp award everyone else is too intimidated to compete for!
Laura’s Barbie tribute also won an honorable mention. The grand prize however, was awarded to German for his amazing Lego MINI.
