DragonCon 2001

8/30 - 9/3


Mikey, Juan and I drove down to DragonCon this year, and had Eric, and Shiela following us in their car. They ditched us in Maryland when Juan got a speeding ticket.

Here's Juan checking the air in his tires.

I know it's hard to see, but that's a shot of the President's Marine One Helicopter!! And yes, this is when we were driving through Washington DC. Thanks to Sgt. Zeno for telling me that the Presiden't Chopper is called Marine One, not Air Force One!!

A shot of Mikey taken over my shoulder from the front seat.

Here's the hitchhiker we picked up on the way down. Of course, 2 minutes after we picked her up, we passed 2 really cute girls hitching, and Juan almost pulled over to kick this girl out and pick them up.

Shiela as a Tonika Twin. She won a prize with this costume in the Star Wars Costume Contest!!

Mikey and Eric as Dr. Evazen and Ponda Baba.

What would DragonCon be without the half naked chicks?

Sith Vixen with Richard LeParmentier (Admiral Motti from Star Wars).

Sith Vixen sticking a "glow stick" up her nose on a dare.

Frank flexing for the ladies.

Here are some shots of the ladies that were at the "Goth Party".

What would DragonCon be without the bi-sexual girls?

Or sexy sisters dancing together?

More Goth girls dancing.

Hector getting down with the sexy sisters at the party.

And then even more girls dancing. Thanks to Rob for wandering around and taking the pics at the Goth Party for me!!

Had to get a shot of the girl ballsy enough to call herself the "Sluttress"!!

Marines. What more can you say? (Photo courtesy of Spud)

At least the lobby was safe. Being guarded by these Marines, who would dare do anything silly? (Photo courtesy of Spud)

Spud joins up with SG-1. (Photo courtesy of Spud)

Does that technically count as a costume?

Don't know what she was supposed to be, but it's nice, huh?

Dawn Costumes seem to be all the rave at DragonCon. Maybe I should actually find out who Dawn is??? (Photo courtesy of Juan)

A Cenobite. Which way is hell from Atlanta? (Photo courtesy of Spud)

A little of teh old "Ultra Violence". (Photo courtesy of Spud)

Me and Richard. This must have been taken early in the night, because we're still standing up.

Great costume of Nefertiri from "The Mummy Returns".

Crystal. That's all I have to say.

Crystal joins the Empire!! (Photos courtesy of Juan)

These are the only 2 people to ever come up to us and thank us for working at Registration at the con. I of course assumed that they were trying to get free passes, but it turns out they were just really nice people. You meet all kinds of freaks at a con, huh?

Ya Ya. That's her name, not the sound I made when I saw her. :)

Here's a pic we got taken at a booth in the Dealer's Room. It's Juan being attacked by Mikey and I.

We found this on the side of the road somewhere in South Carolina. F. Chris Graham tells me that this Elephant is on Hwy 29 in Spartanburg, S.C. and that he is a local landmark. The rumor is that someone lived inside the pink one for a month before the owners found out. It is supposedly hollow behind the light-up sign. Thanks for the info, Chris!!

Me posing outside Dockside Dolls. A Gentlemens Club in South Carolina. We're gentlemen, right? (Photo courtesy of Juan)

Ok, gotta say, this was probably the most disgusting thing I saw the whole weekend. Pigs Feet. Pickled Pigs Feet. And according to the women at the Truck Stop, the Pigs Feet are a huge seller. Ewww.
