| | WEBKINZ STADIUM - Pets missing part of their clothes on runway
My granddaughters and I entered 3 pets in the open Beauty Pageant on Thursday evening 10/1 at Webkinz Stadium held at 8:30 pm EST. Each pet was from a different account -- one US and two Euro. (The date/time of the contest was of course different in the Euro accts, but it was the same pageant.) This was the very first time I'd entered a pageant, and I took extra special care when dressing our pets and preparing them for the pageant.
Disaster struck when we went in to watch them compete. I was stunned and rather embarrased to see all three pets missing major parts of their outfits. My U.S. skunk Taylor paraded down the runway proudly wearing red ruby slippers, a Crown of Wonder, red sunglasses -- BUT NO GOLD KINZ STYLE GOWN. I can still hear my littlest girl screeching, "GRANDMA, SHE'S NAKED!!" Okay, I realize pets/animals have fur but geez----it was the equivalent of a model walking the runway wearing nothing but a hat, shoes and sunglasses.
Ignoring my gut instinct, I very sheepishly checked in to see how our Euro pets had faired. This time my littlest one broke down in tears when her Yorkie and our second skunk appeared on the runway both missing their skirts. Come bedtime I was still hearing, "COULDN"T YOU AT LEAST HAVE PUT UNDERWEAR ON THEM, GRANDMA?" My older girl didn't say much, but I could feel her eyes on me thinking Grandma's an *****.
So is this an actual glitch or did Grandma choose the wrong clothes? Just wondering if there is some kind of rule that clothes must come from the W Shop or Curio Shop. Everyone else's pets were fully and beautifully dressed. Our disappearing clothing articles were that gold shimmery gown from the Kinz Style Shop, and two purple Charm Fairy Skirts (thankfully the Charm Fairy Tops didn't disappear too).
I don't dare do this Beauty Pageant thing again with the girls until I'm sure this won't happen again.
