A Good Excuse to Strap on the Ol' Breast Cones

March 04, 2001

We all have our passions; some are just more fun than others. And for those who live for all things Madonna, the Palace in Hollywood was a fun house of fandom last week.

About 850 people turned up to see and be seen at the First-Ever Los Angeles Madonna Convention. Gender was no barrier when it came to dressing up as the Material Mom, from her bustier-flaunting beginnings to her current cowgirl chic.

While the lip-syncing and look-alike contests were the obvious crowd favorites, the sale of memorabilia and nonstop Madonna tunes kept the action going.

Not in the crowd at the First Ever: the pop diva.

Should we stay tuned for a Second-Ever Madonna Convention?

"Turnout was good," said Elliot Marks, partner in London Calling, the promotion company that staged the convention. "And as long as people were having a good time, and they seemed to be, we'll do it again."
