Our first day at Dragon*Con had me and John hopping to three panels in a row, so I didn't have as much time for costume hunting as I would have liked. I still got plenty of doozies, though, so I can't *wait* to see what Saturday and Sunday bring.
And speaking of those panels, I'll start you off with a few pics of Eddie & Saul from Warehouse 13:
They're pretty much exactly like their characters, which is awesome. Probably the best line: Eddie recounted one time he asked his costar, Joanne, if it ever bothered her that he never takes anything seriously. Her response: "Sometimes I just want to stab you in the eye with a pencil." Ha! It's cute to know their relationship off screen is pretty much identical to that onscreen.
That's the only panel we sat close enough for pictures, though, so from here on out it's costumes, costumes, glorious costumes. (Wheeee!)
"Fabulous, Harry, I love the feathers."
Fuzzy Yip Yips (Sorry; they were a moving target.)
Not too many booth babes at D*C, so this lovely lady really stood out.
Well, at least two of them are looking the right way. :D
Ok, I hate asking because I know it makes me lose geek cred, but...anyone know what this is?
A little more eye candy for the fellas.
Here's both my favorite costume and photo of the day:
Inspired by the masquerade scene in The Labyrinth. The details were simply breath-taking in person. Love it!
And my second favorite shot:
I was taking as many pics in a row as I could to catch the helmet with all the lights on. I'm pretty sure this is this guy, too: check that link for *amazing* in-process photos of him making the helmet (it took him a year and a half!!).
How about a little steampunk?
This weekend D*C is trying to break the world's record for the most steampunk costumes in one photo, so I expect to have *lots* more goodies like this later on.
This lady's props were really cool:
All kinds of great detail.
Naturally, the shops offer plenty of steamy/Victorian goodness, too:
Here's a steampunk mechanic:
And finally, something I shot from two stories overhead, but that pretty well sums up the craziness of D*C:
A ten foot tall cardboard robot.
Hey, why not?
And for those of you attending vicariously through these posts: stay tuned for much, much more!
