That is what I'm thinking!!

That makes SO much sense. I always thought, "okay, if this is a hoax, then why would they bother spending so much time and money on those amazing costumes?"

But of course it could be looked at the other way too, they made the costumes, he died, so they found something to use the costumes for. But this IS a hoax, so I'll stick with option number 1  :D

What you have just witnessed could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare. It isn’t. It’s the beginning.

We'll need to continue watching to see where these costumes show up and on whom...

I think I read that they finished the costumes after Michael's "death". At the time I thought it was perhaps because of who Michael is even in "death"...like Elvis, but then I don't think they finished costumes after Elvis died. Hmmm...anyway, it still struck me as odd at the time but not being in a celebrities world, I shrugged it off.

Thinking about these costumes and Michael's past outfits, these seem a lot more flashy, right? Yes, he had some flashy outfits but most of the time they were pretty humble (the best ones, I think) except for the ones he wore as props (the space outfit). A Las Vegas show would use costumes like this so we'll need to see if this is where they show up next.

Blessings!

Not exactly - We are thinking too small. Think about the comment made by one of Michael's friends where he said he thinks countries and Michael thinks planets. Kenny Ortega has made similar statements where Michael likes bigger and better. Others have made the same statements - Michael goes for the biggest, grandest, over the top entrance. There is no argument there.

My thought is that "THIS IS IT" is an introduction of Michael back into the public spotlight.

To recap - what do we have since June 25, 2009:
We have new music, video games, a clothing line, a comic book "Fated"(the ending is still being written by the way - according to Chopra), movies, videos, books, ring tones and accessories, and this Cirque show that is not only going to have a permanent resident in Las Vegas (It's been said that Michael loves Las Vegas) but is also "touring" the world (Michael wouldn't want to leave anyone out). It's spawning a reality show where hopefuls will win the chance to produce some Cirque shows (mentoring the next generation - just like Michael, right?). Then you have the Gary, Indiana landmark and the new performing arts center (Michael giving back to where it started), and so much more that we probably haven't even heard about.  Who knows what is planned for Neverland? In addition the world has been formally introduced to Prince, Paris, and Blanket.

He's sharing with us the "real Michael" that nobody outside of his inner circle has had the privilege to see and the behind the scenes look into his life. This has all been told since June 25, 2009. Wow - so much has happened in such a short time...

On the side (think about Latoya's magic comment) we have the family miraculously reinventing their lost music careers. They have/had a reality series of their own. They have been on several shows, made guest appearances. Janet is back on top, the brothers are doing well, the sisters appear to be back in the action, Joe is Joe (LOL), and we have also been reintroduced to the younger Jacksons (the next generation) and I believe their careers have benefited in a positive way from this too. Don't forget that the family had a gathering for Joe and Katherine's anniversary (6 months early) weeks before "the day".

My thought with all of this too is that it's a perfect time to also clear Michael's name of all the lies and hateful rumors that came close to destroying him. Of course, it could be a byproduct of this all, but either way it needs to happen for the sake of justice being served. I don't think Michael has clung to the past - he seems to live in the moment but he understands that the past is part of who he is and will be cemented into his legacy for all time.

So, back to the perfect time to clear Michael's name. How? By bringing up each and every ugly rumor that was ever put out there, presenting fact, and letting people decide on their own. Michael believed in that. According to others he also didn't like to give himself credit - he liked the facts to speak for themselves. Okay...how do you let facts speak for themselves?

* The Pepsi Film that only Michael had a copy of was mysteriously leaked to the press. Before that nobody had seen the film.
* The FBI files (333 pages of them) were miraculously requested and published. That proved Michael was unfairly targeted for years with absolutely no basis for the accusations other than extortion.  
* The autopsy report (false or real) has shown us that Michael could produce children (LOL - no doubt in my book). It also showed us that Michael did have Vitaligo. We heard from Dr Klein about the Vitaligo and Lupus as well.
* We were presented with the nose falling off of his face from so much surgery (shown to be a lie) and other plastic surgery (or not)
* The gay lovers coming forward (LOL).
* And don't forget about the drugs.
* We've dealt with lawsuits
* Whether he was broke (or not)
* Paternity requests
* Marriage claims and relationship claims
* His physical health...could he dance, could he sing, could he perform (answer is yes to all)
* Hi mental/emotional health
* His diet
* and how he deals with other people outside of the public eye. What is he "really" like.
...did I forget anything?...

EDIT: oh yes....we must not forget his humanitarian efforts. So much we didn't know before 6/25/2009. People have come forward to share how Michael helped them personally...

We've heard comments from the family, associates, and entertainment people that Michael was still highly sought after. We heard that he liked Dancing With The Stars. He met with producers from American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. He met with Cirque Du Soleil people and Las Vegas execs. He met with Gary, Indiana people a few years ago about the performing arts center. He was working on the comic book. He was working on the new music with several producers and artists. He was working with clothing designers. Everything that we see happening we've also heard that Michael had been speaking with these people already before June 25th. It was always a wonder how he was going to pull off the London residency when it appeared he had so many other irons in the fire. And how could he possibly be in all of these places at the same time? Everyone wanted a piece of him. He's pulled all of his past, present, and future and rolled them into one giant encore.

THIS IS IT. Sit back and enjoy the show...I think we have the plot down but I don't think we've seen the BAM yet.

These are just my thoughts only. Blessings to each of you.
