Because of it's convenience to the Convention Centre, Tanya and Steve booked a room at the Reef Casino
and the following photos show the "very flash" room!!!
- including a luxurious bathroom and spa, a huge bed and a terrific view from the balcony

The Casino Hotel the view from the balcony bed and TV bath and spa

Tanya used the afternoon to "get ready"!!! - and called on a couple of people to help!!!
Louise, a makeup artist, came to do the important "face preparation", and Sharon went in to help with nail polishing
Earlier in the day Tanya had been to the hairdresser and had her hair put in dreadlocks

Tanya, Louise and her "box of magical tricks"!!! and the work gets underway

Sharon watching - and getting a few hints from an expert the eyes are highlighted

and the lips are done Sharon looks after the finger and toe nails

Louise has finished, and Tanya makes a few final touches before getting dressed

All the preparations are finished and it's time to get dressed - Tanya looked great, so it was all worthwhile!!!

-two really nice photos

five photos of Tanya, and these have had an "oil painting" effect applied

Steve arrived at the Hotel - he was showered, dressed and ready in five minutes, but Tanya took hours and hours!!!
"Girls are strange creatures, eh!!!" - here they are together

Lisa, a friend of Tanya's, also turned up for a makeup session - here are some "before and after" shots!!!

"Can't get you out of my head" - dressed the part, an is showing quite a bit of "leg, breast and nipple"!!!
- but wore his Mascot Snake Head for anonymity!!!

(if anyone has any other - clearer - photos of this, would you please pass them on to Tanya - thanks)


- NOTE - No, Tanya's gown doesn't change colors from blue to teal!!!
The photos at the Hotel were taken with my digital camera,
and for some reason it changes the color of this particular outfit
The right color is as shown in the photos taken at the ball - teal!!!
