I worked on my costume for months, and I thought it would be fairly easy to run in. Perhaps I should have consulted with an engineer and/or a fashion designer - this glowing jellyfish costume was heavy, awkward, and HOT - but it was fabulous. The photos don't really do it justice, since it was most fabulous when I was running through the dark woods, with the glowing tenacles flowing around me - one of Scott's pictures came close to capturing it.
So - here we go - the Jellyfish that ran 8k (about 5 miles) in the dark...
here's the video - you can kind of see the flow of my costume around the end of "Cancion del Mariachi" at 2 minutes - just not in the dark
So, afterward, I was VERY SWEATY under all of that plastic and glowlights
And, in the end, I won the costume contest (female) - with Byron - a/k/a LT Dingle.
I also won a team entry for the Beach to Bay marathon relay (ca-ching). I guess I won't have a problem putting together a team this year!
Thanks to Ceci, IAAP, Dorine, Dulce, Fumi, and Scottydog for the pics!
