Well, not my best pics from ORC, but some interesting things I haven't heard talked about much - *L*! In fact, I'm going to need some help here in remember what the heck was happening during some of these pics - so please comment.
First, some pics of Emerald Rose, who did some wonderful songs by Silly Wizard, Dougie McLean, and others; unfortunately, most of my pics of them were too fuzzy to share.
Then - the Awards! In each case, there was a different presenter (usually an actor), and a different costumed volunteer to bring up the award. Cliff Broadway (Quickbeam) wore a leather outfit supplied by one of the vendors - *G* - and emcee'd. Billy Boyd read out the Best LOTR Actor in a TV Series, and accepted for Dom. There was a presentation for the best scholarly article on Tolkien (sorry, I don't recall the winner), a great ballad by Peter Tait, a very silly couple of pratfalls by Bruce Hopkins on stage (checkout the shirt - *L*!), who demonstrated elf sex on the poor elf who walked Bunni (right?) up on stage to accept for the best fan art...
And then... the two elves and the man came on stage. *groan* Can somebody please remind me what the heck those guys were doing??? They actually embarassed poor Jorn, who hid his eyes more than once - *L*! Eventually they presented the best fanfic award (again, winner? sorry, didn't know the names), and Leah, as Sam, brought up the award. Finally, the new LOTR sex symbol, ROYD TOLKIEN came on stage to present best costume to a truly deserving winner - amazing outfit!
I've put a few sample photos below - but would appreciate help filling in the holes of what happened! *G*
