....where do you draw it? How many swords, helmets, boots, chain mail, hats, belts, etc etc etc were homemade? Agree that it makes a mockery of the comps when an army surplus costume wins the day over costumes that take months (if not years) to make!

Donít just blame it on one costume. I thought the judges decisions were really bad all evening. Who knows which society would have won if the ďbestĒ costumes had been picked.

Shop bought costumes winning over carefully researched, beautifully handmade costumes, many of which have taken hundreds of hours to make. The judges know nothing. Well done to everyone who worked so hard on their costumes.

Bob your right ted is a dick head. But expect nothing more from a cliffe orc points cup is probably in the fire of mount doom already. Also doesn't have to be worn on the 5th just able to be worn in a torchlight procession. Oh and ted cliffe might of won but there were more complaints made by some dirty old lush from the cliffe all night.

Hand made Costumes that take often years to finish & be happy with every time, That's bonfire, Borough Zulu's took first place in the pioneer class, But the CSBS Indigenous people's (Indians to you and me avoiding the mealy mouth DFL doublespeak) were also out looking as great as ever. The DFL's & DL crowd must be choking on their Chablis but then they set up a group because one lad from South Africa was apparently insulted a long while ago and lacking the ability to rise above it. Mummy started looking for an excuse to protest, returning the complement for our anti apartheid protests possibly, this is of course the same lad who was not actually as claimed insulted about colour and hit randomly in the face outside the brewers the other week, That lad ought to go join the Borough he would soon learn how to stand up to continually having ignorant comments thrown in his face And that's a Fact

BonfireGirl The judges asked me who made mine, & what part I played, I told them other than standing still when measured and doing a years worth of odd jobs around the house to keep her happy Nothing, but I need to have a word with her about the burn marks which were quite clear under the light of the Town Hall . The rules should state that any costume that has not yet been worn in bonfire is not eligible or bring back the "Hired in" Class

I'm a Waterloo member. And we was very happy with the night. No moaning from us. Only person I saw moaning was a woman from the cliffe. We had a great night. Came second only losing by one point. Ran the bar and food. Also did judges food. Not many other societies could do that.

Funny really why does that not surprise me. Everyone in cliffe thinks the same. If there not having an in fight they want to fight everyone else. Or cause some kind of argument. Unlike cliffe bonfire boys of the past who were true lewes bonfire boys and understood friendly rivalry.

its quite clear that certain costumes and parts of costumes are purchased ready made. the more you talk the more you realise that the rules of the bonco are flouted by societies and ignored by the judges. I could point out many things that I know to be true, but why bother. it will create an argument when the rules breakers try amusingly to justify or even just lie about their "homemade" costumes. until the bonco starts getting tough and routing out the lies and in some cases blatantly obvious non-homemade stuff then it will always be a farce. I don't know how this could ever happen though. One thing I firmly believe is that any winners must be seen wearing that costume on the 5th of that year, if not, then strip them of their prize and that includes pioneer groups

It is true, there are actually very few costumes that are home made, and even then, where do you draw the line? If it was home made by someone else and then bought by you, (eg WW1 uniform) how would you stand then? If itís bought as a kit (eg. Indian head dress) and then put together, does that count? And then what about someone that makes a jacket, but buys all the rest of the outfit - boots, trousers, hat, belts, weapons etc..
And who is the authority that is going to rule on what is home made, and how would they know. Itís not a easy as people might think. Wearing it on the fifth idea is good, as that is the whole point of a bonfire costume. If it hasnít been worn for Bonfire, then it shouldnít qualify. Maybe photographic evidence should be provided as part of the entry process.
