. <center></center> <BLOCKQUOTE> After more than three hours of fighting the Cherry Blossom Fashion Contest took place. The fights will be covered tomorrow in another article. Many fashionistas showed up at the Zento bridge and not all entering the contest either. Oona, Melian and myself were this years judges. LeuSi did a great job introducing us to the contestants and onlookers. She also did a fantastic job instructing and helping the contestants. <center> </center> As the judges stood at one end of the bridge the models took to the bridges length as though it was a catwalk and did their best to impress, strutting to and fro infront of the judges and the cheering crowd. <center> This outfit made all the judges comment that he must be going through his " blue period " </center> It was not an easy job for the judges with so much style and attitude. A choice had to be made however. All the clothes horses lined up one more time for the judges to review their efforts. <center></center> I am proud to announce this years King is Momochi , winning with his perfect " dash of color " and Gold Digger was crowned Queen, even though she was bare footed! <center>Congratulations to you both!
