We were pleased to find ourselves in a posh magazine's ("Weddings Unveiled")  blog called "Completely Unveiled,."  The globe trotting couple's theme was "Travel" and our lovely flight attendants handed out place cards to guest tables that represented various countries.

Thanks to  Holly Chapple Flowers and Laura Ashbrook Photography,
 who submitted Amy and Chris' wedding to be featured on the Weddings Unveiled

"Washington's Most Buzzed About Gala!"

Our Moon Maiden welcomes guests to the National Building Museum.

The Shakespeare Theatre Company and a cast of distinguished performers from the worlds of dance, opera and classical music paid  tribute to William Shakespeare's Italy. Under the gracious patronage of His Excellency the British Ambassador and Lady Sheinwald, the 2010 Gala  also featured the presentation of the William Shakespeare Award for Classical Theatre and the Sidney Harman Award for Philanthropy in the Arts. 

Recognized as "Washington's Most Buzzed About Gala" (Washington Life), the evening ends with a walk down the red carpet to dinner and dancing in the National Building Museum, where our Moon Maiden was on hand to welcome the 
arriving guests.

"Ladies Night at National Stadium!"

Our two gorgeous guys, plus a comical Elvis impersonator added some masculine spice to "Ladies Night" at Nationals Stadium on August 26, 2010.  They posed for many, many, many photos and we are guessing they batted 1000!

Washington's Best Party at the National Building Museum -- Too Much Fun!

All photos courtesy of Imigination Photography

Ladies and Gentlemen and children of all ages!  The Washingtonian Magazine really knows how to throw a party!  On July 21 their annual "Best of Washington" party filled the National Building Museum with a circus theme, to benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.  Great restaurants showed off their signature dishes, lots of games to play, and lucky us --we got to be a part of it all!

We really brought the theme to life with our best circus performers.  We had a fire eater and a carnival barker greeting guests as they arrived.  Inside, we had three clowns, a juggler and two stilt walkers Special thanks to Tony Brown who generously shared his great photos of our performers.  

And here's a video, courtesy of the Washingtonian Magazine!

Our "Hangover" impersonators have fun at a Giants game. This is work?

Phil, Vegas Show Girls and Mr. Chow (nobody was really drinking by the way!)

"Wolfman" faces the media!  He got to be on the Jumbotron.  How cool is that?

Practicing the "Wolf Pack" speech!

Appearing at Mo Mo's for pre-game fun.

At the Miller/Coors Party Deck watching the game, and being on the "Kiss Cam" too!

We're married!  And where's my tooth?????
Like they say, a tough job but somebody has to do it.  We were hired to portray the spaced out characters from the movie "The Hangover" who were supposedly  in San Francisco to see the Giants vs. the Dodgers.  First a pub crawl to various beer joints near AT&T Park, then various stunts at the game itself.   Many many people got the joke right away, and burst out laughing before any of the characters even said the first word.  The big hit was the baby "Carlos!"  So the actors got to perform on the Jumbotron for an audience of thousands, and poor things, had to kiss for the "Kiss Cam" also on the Jumbotron.  And they still want to be paid?????

Living Statues add classic fun to Columbia Maryland's "Wine in the Woods!"

Bacchus God of Wine
Classical Greek Statue
Is it real? Is it human?

When he suddenly moves, wine tasters wonder if maybe they've been tasting a bit too much!

Then they realize it's a "Living Statue," and that's all the fun.  This annual event, "Wine in the Woods," held in Columbia Maryland's Symphony Woods is a great way to celebrate spring and enjoy the wonderful entertainment, including our great statues!

One of our favorites: An International theme!

This event, with its international theme, gave us an opportunity to fill the ballroom with lots of wonderful performers.  The Asian section featured our fantastic paper cutter, as well as Chinese Ribbon and Fan dancers. Martha Washington and a singing harpist enlivened the America section. 

The strange guy with the broom is the "Fool" character from Commedia dell'Arte.  He added some silly fun to the Italian section. And our low key mime charmed even the most mime-phobic guests with his bubbles and whimsy. A stilt walker, with his very long strides, was able to cross borders and greet guests in all the various regions.
