Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Front Page -

FIC­TIONAL char­ac­ters were brought to life at Man­jimup Se­nior High School for Book Week.

Last Thurs­day, the school held its an­nual char­ac­ter dress-up com­pe­ti­tion, with stu­dents from Year 7-12 dress­ing up as their favourite book and TV char­ac­ters.

In the lower school cat­e­gory, first place went to Am­ber Castle­how and her cos­tume as Uni­corn Chron­i­cles pro­tag­o­nist Cara Di­ana Hunter.

“Es­sen­tially, I had the book, liked the char­ac­ter and de­cided to dress up as her,” she said.

Is­abella Slade was sec­ond for her Ar­wen cos­tume from The Lord of the Rings tril­ogy and third went to Re­becca Radomil­jac for her Cat Noir cos­tume from the tele­vi­sion show Mirac­u­lous Lady­bug.

In the up­per school com­pe­ti­tion, Giverny Sey­mour and Kel­lie White were first as Aragorn and Le­go­las from The Lord of the Rings tril­ogy.

“We’re both re­ally big fans of the se­ries and be­ing Year 12, we de­cided to go all out,” Giverny said.

Sec­ond place went to Bryce Bamess, who was dressed as King Jof­frey from Game of Thrones and was a “good ex­am­ple of how teenagers should not be­have”.

Third place went to Ge­navieve Gun­son for her Win­nie Fos­ter cos­tume from Tuck Everlasting.
