There's another pic that I took just after the T-Rex one that I forgot about last night and here it is.
There were many people wearing costumes for this and that fact made me feel a bit left out considering the fact I love dressing up for Halloween just to get a reaction out of people. ... I'm going to be dressing up for StarFest next year. Every year for Halloween for the past few years I've been dressing up as a griffin. So when that next StarFest rolls around I'm going to give my feather whig a new use & dress up as Koori. These are some people who dressed up. There were lots of amazing costumes, wish I could have taken pictures of all of them. ... I haven't seen the Dark Crystal since the 80's, but one person dressed as some creature, "rider" some thing. I think my mouth dropped open at seeing this costume. The man ... I think since I never saw the face. The man was on stilts and crutches, no way could this person have walked into the hotel wearing this. I asked a person who was with the one wearing the Dark Crystal costume, yes the person did fall in it a few times. I'm going to have to find a Dark Crystal website with a picture of this thing he dressed as for you guys to get this sight. Also another costume well worth bring up is one person dressed in an Alien one, and I mean from the Alien movie series when I say that. This costume was so impressive it should be used by Hollywood for film promotion. Odd fact: I hear it didn't win the costume contest being held by the con. .
There was a place for shopping with numerous vendors and also in the same area authors were doing book signings if you purchased their work. ... I found out I'm related to one of the authors that was at this. We got into a talk about both of us having Scottish blood and she said her Chan name before I opened my month about the ones in my family.
Julia Phillips, the author of: Miranda Queen of Argyll Past Sins. Is a member of Chan Gunn. Chan "Gunn" is a family name that comes out of my mom's side of the family.
Bought a few things in this main shopping area, one of which makes me feel I really did the right thing by setting up an area of this forum for old video format, ... among the things I got one of them was a LaserDisc. One of the vendors had two boxes filled with them. Another thing I'll bring up from this is a shirt which reads "Tardis Tours: We show you how your vacation will end before it even begins!"
Now the whole time this event was going on I was wearing a 26th Century shirt with ( told you guys I would
) the websites on the back, including SciFiUnited, plus a NASA ball cap that went about the Titan IV. I met two people at this that were involved with that. They worked on the Titan IV project! Had a good long talk with both but during mid-day of this event a fire alarm went off and it was every body out of the building. ... I think this was one of the few places you could ever joke "Red Alert, Red Alert!" and people would get a good laugh.
I need to take a break right now but I'll still be posting more on this event later.
