The Dragon Con avalanche continues!

An excellent Rocketeer and Betty.

I seem to remember having a dream about this during the summer of 1977. Oh, the shame I felt...

Reading! It's fundamental!

It's about fucking time someone represented as Usagi Yojimbo!

The first post-reboot movie Uhura that I've seen, but I'm betting there will be a lot more at cons to come.

A mother-daughter TOS combo, with the daughter rocking a standard crew uniform while mom represents as Number One from the show's pilot, "The Cage."

A happy TOS family. This just warms my heart.

Subtle and rather funny.

The Mighty Thor and Loki head for the bar.

The Sorcerer Supreme weaves a spell (no, he's not flashing the "metal horns").

The Huntress and the Green Lantern.

The Golden Age Flash, a favorite of mine since childhood.

The Baroness strikes again!

Pamela Shaw's awesome tattoos.

Seriously, what's not to love about "Jedi Tigger?"

Two convention guests from the Village.

The T-1000 waits in line for a Dairy Queen foot-long chili dog.

And speaking of foot-longs...

There was a huge Steampunk presence this year, and I applaud its supporters for their rampaging DIY creativity.

An excellent Stargirl. Extra points for that fantastic Cosmic Rod!

It's the Scooby Gang!

A STAR WARS family heads for the courtyard.

10 out of 10 for this one: a superb Silver Age Star Sapphire.

Smoking will kill you, and Death ought to know...

"Sith Monkey! That funky monkey!"

A diminutive Gene Simmons.

Enter the Silver Samurai!

A HIGHLANDER fan serves as a walking shrine to Duncan MacLeod.

Shaggy indulges his munchies as Daphne and Scooby await theier share of Scooby Snacks.

Poison Ivy sexes-up a fortunate support pillar.

And just for the hell of it, here's the Rocketeer and Betty again, rendered in period-appropriate sepia.

TO BE CONTINUED (on Saturday; tomorrow's FIST OF THE NORTH STAR FRIDAY and we all know how important that is!)

re: Uhura.

Still saving myself for Nichelle Nichols. Sexy Soul Sister of the Stars, You!

The shrine isn't to Duncan MacLeod, it's Baltar from the new Battlestar Galactica. He sets himself up as a religious figure at one point in the show; that costume had me in stitches.
