Well it was kind of a party but not the usual dress-up for a birthday, wedding - type of party so I'll give you a tentative yes for that one.

Well, I wanted to know if it was for say, a show of some kind. So I'll take that as a no to the show. This is an observation not a question.

Question: Is she doing a singing/dancing greeting of some sort?

(This is a very odd picture for a "Where In The World, y'know, Jube" !!

Yes it is an odd picture for a Where in the World, Lily but NO to the singing/dancing bit.

No to on the stage of "Cats" but she is representing the show in part.

Yes to being in Australia.

That's okay, Lily as it reminded me that I had to get tickets for it, except that it's my nan's birthday that weekend too. Now I'm rabbiting on. More on that bit later. I'll stick to answering Q&A's for now.

I was wondering who would make the connection to where I took this photo and yes I did take the photo. Well done Hans Yes it was taken at Supanova and it is a type of masquerade party throughout the weekend of many different characters from films/tv, literature including comics, musicals and video games - basically your entertainment industry is there.

Tresa - there have been times when you've stumped me well and truly so please don't stress too much.
