The "Mataoscars"*(TM): Red Carpet Strut

Haanta pilfered this red carpet from Karazhan, thinking it would be just the thing for the grand red carpet walk! Prince Medivh would never miss it, right? Just take any rug in the house...even though it really tied the castle together.

Disclaimer: Originally I had written that I would post all the choices on Survey Monkey and let you all decide; since I started getting so many exquisitely crafted entries, that idea was scrapped. Everyone is truly a 'winner.' Yeah, yeah, you say, sure. But I humbly ask you all lay your competitive mogging natures aside, and just enjoy the show!

Your host this evening is Random Murloc, Entertainment Reporter for the Azerothian Sun Times: Mr. Murloc, take it away!

Now, for each of our award recipients, we have only provided one photograph from the cast of characters - for more amazement, please click on their links and look over the ensembles. Vera Wang, eat your heart out!

Please - if I forgot someone, please be kind and tell me right away so I can amend the situation! Apparently I can't count either because I counted some twice, but here is what we have. I cannot urge you all strongly enough to click on every one of these links and congratulate these players for their originality, creativity and keen eye for style! And credit must go to Cymre for coming up with the Mataoscars! Brava!

I could not have asked for anything better, and thank you all again for these wonderful creations!

    Great job to everyone and Happy Birthday again Matty!

    Thank you for organising such a fun contest. I'm so glad for this list so I can catch up on the few I missed.

  2. Ooh I see some I missed! Must go check.

    1. Do you know what I think is cool? Everyone who participated is someone I know! I think we have the same friends Matty - does this make us peas in a pod? :)

    2. You know - you're right! This makes me smile... a lot!

  3. I'm so glad there's no voting because I couldn't, there are so many wonderful outfits I couldn't pick. And I thought I'd seen them all but I missed some. It was a really fun idea, thank you!

    And happy early birthday!

  4. Awesome stuff! Was a brilliant idea, and had loads of fun doing it, thankyouuuuu and happy birthday :D

  5. Definitely a great "event"! Thanks Matty! And again, happy birthday!

    Besides, who votes on the fancies that run the real red carpets, anyway? ;)

  6. I love the variety of movies represented and the amazing creativity in making outfits that match their inspirations so very well. Bravo again to everyone, and a very happy happy birthday to you, Matty!

  7. These are all awesome :) Happy birthday Matty!

    Happy birthday Matty!

    1. Thank you so much Pando - I felt like Hollywood royalty!

  10. A belated "HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATTY" to you!!!! And thank you for the fun contest!

    I kind of don't blame you on scrapping the voting idea...this contest had some fierce competition and trying to vote on just one would have taken way too long to figure out.

    My congratz go out to everyone who played a part in 'Mataoscars' all did WONDERFUL! There are soooo many outfits you all created that I just love.

    1. Thanks Sheet - much, much appreciated - this was a lot of fun!

    All these outfits are awesome! So I'm happy you scrapped the idea of voting, would have been really ticky to pick what outfit to vote for.

    And thanks for a great event Matty, it was a lot of fun. :)

  12. Gratz to everyone. I had fun participating and thank you for hosting Matty. Hope your special day was fantastic!
