After judging you’re allowed to get comfortable (which in our case meant taking a bunch of stuff off) while you waited your group’s turn to get on stage. Masquerade performances can range from simple walk-ons to music to choreographed dance numbers. Wanting to keep the audience entertained we opted for a humorous take on the world of Rapture.
What you couldn’t see was both Big Daddies precariously navigating up a set of stairs to get on stage that caused a delay getting the Little Sisters and Sophia Lamb out. Watching four grown men help our Bouncer up those steps was one of the most nerve-wracking things I’ve ever witnessed.

Above: It also meant a lot of waiting…
Above: Since some of us were so large we couldn’t fit on stage the two Big Daddies had to stand in front right next to some of the photographers
Above: We had to constantly tell people that there was a girl in there
Above: A very uncomfortable, very tired, but awesome girl!
Above: After the press area we were hustled backstage where we were told we were getting an award. Considering the amount of amazing entries we were terribly excited
