The convention was nice, with many interesting costumed folk. Possibly the best were these two, playing the parts of the tenth and fourth Doctor from Dr. Who (David Tennant and Tom Baker). The resemblance of the fellow on the left was simply uncanny.

And a couple of others:

Cosplayer in wolf-like costume with blue arms and legs. Cosplayer in a one-eyed yellow triangular costume with top hat and bow tie.

My major purchase was a couple of more books by Lonnie Millsap. The guy’s work is funny. Sometimes shockingly rude, but funny.

However. After about an hour, I had seen what I wanted to see, and decided to take a walk outside, and I just started seeing things to take pictures of. So the rest of this is really just whatever caught my eye, quite often with no rhyme or reason—just “oh, this looks like it would make a good picture.” The pictures are in the order I took them, just to add a bit more randomness to the equation.
