The 7000th Performance, January 2001
I wish I could describe this momentous celebration to you, but I wasn't there. This was the one and only time the Starlight Express fans have been officially recognised in UK by RUG. For the 7000th performance, we were invited to attend, in costume, and given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of a photoshoot, in costume, onstage, with members of the cast. However, Mazz and I were at the time dutifully visiting family in New Zealand. Amazing how the most spectacular place can be ruined by the knowledge of the single most exciting event happening THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD!!!
Thingywot, however, was part of the group that went, and these photos were taken for her, and she kindly let me put them up here to share. It was events after this occasion that decided that I would no longer simply lend out costumes. They either stay with me, or I get a deposit to get them back! The only other thing I lament is that this opportunity happened before I actually got any good at making costumes... The only sewing I contributed to this was Thingywot's Pearl and the Buffy costume.
