I had the privilege of walking the runway as a 'celebrity' walker at the Ladies Council Tu Nudito Fashion Show at Casino Del Sol last night (with some other celebrities more celebrity than I am). I got to walk with one of the Tu Nudito kids, who was dressed in costume.
I've done this before, and it's a neat experience. The kids are really great. And, it's an event that raises a ton of cash for Tu Nudito and the services they provide kids in Tucson. It also kicks off the show that features real models in a real runway show.
I shot a combination of video and stills (with the help of Anthony). I was reminded again why I generally stick to still photos when I do photography, the video was disappointing to me. Mostly because I have a high expectation of myself for what I shoot and at this point I feel that I do better with still photos. However, I am determined and the video will get better with practice (I hope). In case you were wondering, I brought a point-and-shoot camera and my camcorder (mostly because I could stick both in my suit jacket pockets and didn't have to lug around a bag). The video will appear as b-roll on the TV show tomorrow.
Since I thought the photos turned out to be a bit more fun, here are a few of those:

Coincidence? Of course it is.

Intentional photo bombs are fun.
