GISHWHES 2015 Adventure

This year’s GISHWHES was as amazing as ever! I only wish we’d had more time to do more items. This year, Dorothy’s Wanderlust was combined with two other teams, Loves Angels of Thursday and Honey Badger, and we had a wonderful adventure with our new Australian friends!

As a recap, you can find last year’s list of craziness here. Below are just SOME of this year’s activities! Unfortunately I didn’t download them before the hunt ended and I don’t have access to all of them at the moment, but we can share and enjoy the images and videos below. (Click the links for videos!) We can’t wait to see what next year has in store!

VIDEO. Stop hiding your true talent. The world deserves to see it. Without using special effects or trick editing, make a person disappear.

VIDEO. Your friend loves cake, so being a good friend, you offer to take them out for cake at a nice restaurant. Alas, you discover when you arrive at the restaurant, that your friend has recently undergone medical treatments that prevents them from moving their arms, so you will have to feed them. Unfortunately, light is harmful to your eyes so you must be blindfolded. While blindfolded, stand behind your seated friend in a fancy restaurant and put your arms under their armpits and feed them cake with your hands. Trust us. This is going to work out beautifully. 50 points
