Surviving the Runway 80’s Prom night

laura+judge Surviving the Runway 80s Prom nightThe best Surviving the Runway yet happened at Festival this weekend. Prom Night got under way at 5:30 Saturday night, what a blast we had.

Laura Wasilowski was the official judge who had the difficult job of choosing the winners of the tiara making contest.

Those who know Robbi probably understand why Pokey had to do it, lol. As chaperons our job was to advise participants for 5 minutes if they answered an 80’s trivia question correctly.

    1. Those were two Hannah Montana wigs. Get your teen singers right. I have say I am totally impressed by the mullet wig, excellent job.

    2. I was only supposed to advise for 5 minutes? I didn’t know that. Good thing, because I don’t think I was that helpful. I WAS loud though….

    3. I have some videos of you. One in your outfit. I’ll try to get a still out of it.

    4. That was fun.
