    Good Morning… Irma has left us here. We had a lot of rain last night, but it is sunny and nice this morning. We may get more rain later, but for now it is okay.

    Hubby is at work today and his apartment has power again.
    He really did just hunker down and ride it out like lots of other
    people in Florida.

    Hi Shirls… Gene loves Stinky too. He posed with the girls on his last visit.

    I went to 12 of the 15 Gene conventions. It took me the first three to make the decision to go. After that I was hooked. My sisters and I had wonderful times at them.

    Because Gene is larger, the costumes were easier to make. We had competitions and the winners got to design things for the following convention.

    the fabrics and details were wonderful

    Mel loved Hollywood and designed lots of costumes from the old movies that he loved.

    We watched as he added bendable knees. The process of getting the
    patents was long and expensive.

    This ballroom backdrop was such a favorite. The convention was at the Biltmore where Oscar was “born” on a napkin.

    There were lots of different girls, but only Trent. He got a few outfits and was pretty stiff and had that look on his face. We had lots of fun making dioramas with him. Here the gun and holster are so realistic.

    Everything was perfect scale and the Gene shoes were wonderful.Several designers still make special shoes for her size. They are expensive, but so beautiful.. Little pieces of art.

    This backdrop was great too.

    Each outfit was named and had a story line with it.

    This is the beaded dress designed by Jason Wu that became the model for the Obama inaugural ball gown. He won the contest not knowing for whom or what the dress was being designed. It was so cool having him present the dresses to us.

    Have a great day.
