Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2005

Ana María Pérez Meneses Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2005

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2005 was Ana María Pérez Meneses in a costume entitled "Rozando la piel del cielo" (Touching the skin of the sky), designed by Juan Carlos Armas and representing Centro Comercial Alcampo. Her costume, made of feathers, rhinestones and crystals, weighed more than one hundred kilos. 

In 2005, the court was made up as follows:

  1. 1st Maid of Honour: Lilián Kimberly Jerónimo Morales, with a costume entitled "Una estrella llamada Josephine" (A star named Josephine), representing Centro Comercial Meridiano and designed by Saliarca Creativos.
  2. 2nd Maid of Honour: Edesa Beatriz Medina García, with a costume entitled "Nusha", representing Barbacoa Tacoronte and designed by Expedita Hernández.
  3. 3rd Maid of Honour: Míriam Gutiérrez Gómez, with a costume entitled "Madame Butterfly", representing Grupo AC Bingo Colombófilo and designed by Juan Carlos Armas.
  4. 4th Maid of Honour
  5. Rosa Esther Arqués Ledesma, with a costume entitled "En el jardín del bonsai" (In the bonsai garden), representing newspaper "El Día" and designed by Leo Martínez.
The theme of carnival in 2005 was Hollywood musicals: The scenery, for the last time in the Plaza de España, was inspired by Hollywood musicals, in shades of white, black and gray. The gala, directed by Jaime Azpilicueta, had the participation of more than 1,000 members of carnival groups and troupes, who staged numbers from the most popular musicals on Broadway and the West End, such as "Wizard of Oz", "Dancing in the rain", "Grease", "Seven brides for seven brothers", "My Fair Lady", "Saturday Night Fever" and "West Side Story" among others. The jury, which included actresses Lina Morgan and Carmen Sevilla, had a difficult time choosing from among the twelve candidates.
