Welcome to WesterCon

July has been a very busy month for me. It started out with a trip to WesterCon, the West Coast Science Fiction convention. I haven’t been to one for a very long time, but this one had guests Patricia McKillip, one of my favorite authors, and Phil and Kaja Folio, who create “Girl Genius” steampunk graphic novels. The convention was rather small, but there were plenty of opportunities for photographs from the hall costumes to the masquerade.

The winner of WesterCon’s masquerade/costume contest was a mash-up of Wizard of Oz, Wicked, and the Dating Game. Seven people performed a skit dressed as the Oz characters in which Fiero got to chose a date with Dorothy, Elfaba, or Glinda. It was a clever performance and the costumes were well-crafted.
