SPECIAL EDITION - BODY PAINTING CONTEST - MARCH 08

Please keep in mind this is ART.

This weekend was the 26th Annual Fantasy Film Festival in Brussels and one of the exhabits was a body painting contest.

For a small fee, you were allowed to enter the artist workshop area and watch them paint.....and take photos.  We took over 450 photos between the two cameras.  When we were allowed in, they were already partially painted/covered.  The painting went on for approx. 2 hours.  It was facinating to watch.  After a short break, the contest began.  The contest/show was equally as interesting because each "paintee" did a little skit with music.  Some danced, some did comedy, one sang.  It was a difficult task to narrow our photos down to a select few......but here goes.  Oh yeah, we decided that, next year, we will enter the contest.  Donald will paint and I will, well uh, ummmmmmmm select a women for him to paint  :  ).  Enjoy!


This artist was last year's winner. 
He did not compete in 2008, but did a special exhibit and was in the lobby entrance.
