Two Niobes and two lay helpers pose with Paris and Helen., originally uploaded by Chez VH.
Here is a picture of most of our costume competitors. Two girls are dressed as Niobe (they came in 1st and 3rd in the girls' competition!) and the two with painted faces are Paris and Helen imitating the style of Greek pottery. They placed 2nd in the couples' competition! We also had a very creative Pan costume in the boys' category (he entered on the 2nd day and so is not pictured here) who won 2nd place.
Ria also painted a lovely picture of a scene from Hadrian's Villa which tied for 1st place in the painting category with a perfect score!
