LOSCON pics  
Well, I hope none of y'all were holding your breath waiting for my LOSCON '06 pictures, because it's likely several of you have passed out by now. I DID finally edit them. Where I found the time between finals and college in general and the holidays and the plethora of birthdays, I don't know, but I did.

This shot was actually taken by thudpucker, early enough on that I hadn't realized what a pain in the ass the hat was going to be. spazzychic and I at that Star Wars-ed out car you always see on the internet. Hanging with the 'D2.

If Amber doesn't get the Enterprise first, the Doomsday Machine will!

...and here's a little movie of the Doomsday Machine with some impromptu special effects provided by postrophe (who was nice enough to pay my way into LOSCON!)

Martin gave blood and got a fishie for it. And he gave me the fishie! Yay, fishie!

ACTION SHOT! Roger Rose and Martin.

Part of the crew of the Firefly. I thought this was probably the coolest group costume. And Kaylee is STILL adorable!

I wanted to take this girl's pic because I thought her outfit looked cool. She apparently thought I knew what her outfit was from and posed appropriately. Four times. Then she decided she liked this one best.

For future reference, in all the costumes I post, the Firefly group is the only costume I recognize. From here on in, don't expect me to describe who they're cosplaying as, I don't know.

Two cool pictures I saw for sale in the huckster's room. Yes, I got the artist's permission before I snapped these.

Michelle, resplendant with sword.

A guy in a cool outfit.

A group of people in cool outfits.

Rosie and Chaos (would that be chaoswolf?). Rosie is a good friend of ours and Chaos is actually an elf in disguise, I think. I've never met anyone so naturally elven/pixie/faun in their ways and mannerisms before in my life. She just wasn't really human and I can't explain it.

robyngoodfellow!! This is the shirt we almost bought you! We bought you something even COOLER instead ^________^

This is SUCH a cute outfit.

On to the Saturday night party pictures! DISCLAIMER: If you haven't read my previous picture post about how I'm not using flash so much and therefore all my pictures are blurry and suck, you might want to go back and review.

Amber flashing Tadao's BadgeFu

Still no flash! Amber at the Toronto party!

Three Pritty Fairies

This one I used the flash on. Looks harsh, huh? Still, a cute outfit. I need to start a "buy Misty a small tripod" fund...

BEHOLD mah pritty neckliss!!

Peggy and John.

Left to right, Me, Amber, Martin, John and Peggy. I apparently have spotted angels heading my way. This puzzles Martin. John and Peggy are in their own cute little world.

...and violet_tigress1 in a way cute outfit.

The wackier stuff got saved as movies. I highly suggest them, even the long one. For some reason I was getting some sound playback problems the last time I listened to them, but not when I first checked them, so hopefully you'll get the whole effect.

Firstly, I don't even know how we came up with this idea, but here's Amber a'kissin' mah boyfrend!

This guy had a whole schtick with this outfit, which he tried to go through for the movie, but Amber hijacked it... You need to see this one.

At one point we met a gentleman named Bill (I still wish I knew his last name). He was hands-down the weirdest person I met at the con, and I talked to a guy with a red and green flashing viking helmet. He was very odd, consented to have his "cow" filmed, and then I apparently scared him off....

This next one is I THINK selinawoman showing Amber the proper way to bow. Big, but worth it.

Ah! I've used that quote a few times. If my present is cooler than that, I can't wait to see it (but I will, I promise).

Isn't it a Terry Pratchett quote? I'm sure it is.

It may well be. You might wanna look it up.

Can't find a definative source, so far I've found Booker T. Washington, and James Nichols, but more often than not, it was Anon. That guy is famous.

but I will, I promise

I'm not sure you're going to have the option! I ordered one of Brian's presents over a week ago and Amazon still hasn't billed or shipped, so it may be several weeks PAST Christmas y'all get your presents...

It'll give me something to look forward to!
Let me know when it comes in, and we can decide if it would be better to send it to the new address or the current address.
Frittersfritters on December 11th, 2006 06:25 am (UTC)
No prob. So far I'm still doing the old one. Did all my cards today and suchlike.

OMFG single best balloon creature ever created!!

Also, Michelle's dress is remarkable and I love it.

Also, I'm wondering if you would mind if I reposted the picture of the t-shirt about the English Language on a humour group about grammar cause they would really get it and I found it insanely hilarious.

Last - that's a pretty necklace!
Frittersfritters on December 11th, 2006 05:00 am (UTC)
Oh, feel free to repost any of it! I'd be flattered!

That IS a lovely necklace, that's one of the reasons I took the shot ^_^ Even better up close!

Wonderful pictures! I hope you've given Michelle a copy of that one.

Just to note, last night I sat between you and Michelle at "lj user="postrophe">'s 49th birthday dinner -- to which he showed up two and a half hours late. krystalemerges did a great job organizing it for him everyone. They are such a cute couple. As are Peggy and John, above.
Frittersfritters on December 11th, 2006 07:05 am (UTC)
Both the Peggy and John pictures turned out fantastic, I love the expressions on both of them ^_^ And Martin was poked by Michelle to save the picture for her tomorrow at work...

Yay!! woke myself from the no picture coma and enjoyed the hell out of these! Love the movies too! Makes me wish I had made it there Sat. night, but it look like most of these were taken during the day anyways.....Hey, there is always next year....

Whoever told you that you can't take good pictures needs to be soundly slapped around. These are some of the best that I have seen of particualar people. Michelle definatly wins the best picture in this set!

The person who told me I couldn't take good pictures was me!
lironesslironess on December 13th, 2006 06:43 am (UTC)
Well, now you see that is not the case, these are great!

Mmmm...Amber in Motion...

You can save the movies forever and ever and ever and ever...
