In a flurry of lace, leather, and long legs, the Dawn Contest surpassed everyone’s imagination in sight and context. All contestants showed their most favorable assets through dance, stances, or by having Anthony Daniels usher them around the stage. Judged upon their attitude, appearance, and imagination, the judges had a very difficult job of picking out the best of the Dawns. In it’s virginal year, this event will hopefully continue for years to come.
