Origin Story: Melody Martian and Marvin lived together on Mars and were deeply in love, but their love, alas, was forbidden. You see, Marvin was a Moon-tague and Melody was a Space-Capsulet and the two families were sworn enemies.
Melody's family emigrated from Mars to Venus to avoid persecution. And now Marvin's sole purpose in life is to destroy earth with his Illudium PU-36 Space Modulator because it blocks his view of Venus - and of his one true love, Melody Martian. Melody entered the Miss Space Debris competition hoping that her winning might dissuade Marvin from destroying this planet, which Melody has taken a liking to - because she enjoys Sputnikfest so much.
Melody says she decided to enter the Miss Space Debris competition because she loves to do "spunky, weird things." She said she watched the competition last year and decided it would be the perfect thing to get involved in!
Melody's favorite thing about Sputnikfest is seeing all the different amazing costumes and seeing what people can come up with. Melody particularly likes seeing the Star Wars characters each year and says that of all the characters from the movies, her favorite "would have to be Jabba The Hut because every time I see him I can't help but laugh."
When Melody is not at Sputnikfest, she loves to sing and play bass - and she also likes to read, hang out with her friends, and play volleyball. But her favorite thing on Earth is Sputnikfest. She says it is "a very fun, and interesting festival. I think it's a wonderful event for people of all ages!"

Melody will be representing the Spirit of Sputnikfest at various parades and events over the next year.
Thanks to all who participated in this contest - and who attended Sputnikfest this year - the event would not be possible without your support. Planet Terry
