The Tiny Floats contest winners were decided by community vote, but we thought it would be fun to ask a few Experts In The Field to choose their favorites among this year's entries. Thank you to microscopic supervisionarianist Lalito (Lalo Hernandez de Montepoquito), floatology futurist “James Elaine” Rose, (decon)(post) structuralist Dr. Nathaniel Q. Hawthorne, streetwise but sensitive tiny float lover Jackson Smith-Jones, and world famous singer-model-dancer-actress Candice Michelle Shell. Mahalo!
