|The Women of Dragon*Con|
Dragon*Con 2011 is fast approaching and many are well into their preparations for the four-day convention. Others are anxiously awaiting the event just for the people watching...or creature watching, alien watching, superhero watching. Whatever the case may be, there will be lots of watching going on.
The costumes are definitely a highlight of the convention. The women of Dragon*Con don costumes that range from the imaginative and tailored to the seductive and provocative (the same can be said of the men of Dragon*Con, but let's focus on the ladies for a moment).
One of my favorite things about Dragon*Con is the enthusiasm the costumed have for having their photo made with other conventioneers and onlookers. Forget the scum and villainy, you'll never find a place with more elegance and sexiness, as well as a healthy dose of good old fashioned fun.
The media doesn't get it just yet...as recent as last year when they were reporting on Dragon*Con they too often used the phrase "geeks and freaks" to describe the attendees. Take another look reporters! Maybe this year you'll catch up with the times and call our conventioneers the obvious "hot and sexy." Keep it up with the insults and one of these scorching hot numbers just might kick some reporter butt...just sayin'.
And just wait until you see the celebrity women who will be attending. The one I am most looking forward to meeting is Kate Mulgrew who played Captain Kathryn Janeway on Startrek: Voyager.
Also attending, and the list is growing weekly, are: Tricia Helfer (Number Six on Battlestar Galactica), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia on Star Wars), Amanda Tapping (from Stargate and Sanctuary), and Meaghan Rath (Sally on Being Human).
