All-Con: Day Two, Part Two. A Pictoral Report

Upon returning from dinner, our eyes were greeted by a glorious sight. The time-traveling Delorean from the Back To The Future movies (or a reasonable replica) was out in the parking lot, courtesy of Bob's Prop Shop.

You want to talk attention to detail? They even had the Mr. Fusion unit glued to the back AND a pink hoverboard in the front seat. Sadly, the hoverboard did not work and none of my pictures of it came out. But it was there!

I had to part ways with Chrispy to go grab my equipment and set up for my class on American Comic history. Of course - as frequently happens at All-Con - I ran into somebody I knew and got delayed. In this case, the line for the costume contest was already forming and I ran into one of my castmates from Amber Does Dallas. From there, I wound up snapping pictures of several other eye-catching convention goers.

This is my friend Karla, cosplaying the part of Merida from the upcoming Pixar movie Brave.

Raven from Teen Titans Go!

A heavily tattooed Slave Leia. She had a lightsaber on one side and the Millennium Falcon on the other. I oped for a picture of the lightsaber side.

I caught up with this couple after my class on Comics History, which they attended along with another good size crowd - a minor miracle given I was competing with the costume contest. Though I unfortunately blanked on their names, I did remember seeing them at some of my shadowcast shows in the past and they were quite surprised to know that I was a blogger. Hopefully they'll see this and I can start doing a better job of remembering their names. :)

My other friend Carla as Idris from the sixth series Doctor Who episode, The Doctor's Wife.

Mace Windu from Star Wars Episodes 1-3

What time is it? Adventure Time!

Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica. The cigar isn't real but the costume is otherwise flawless. I ran into this lady a few times over the course of the day, as she was working the Half Price Books booth in the dealer's room. I took this photo as I was flyering my show.

And what show would that be? Why Repo, The Genetic Opera! of course. But it wasn't enough for Amber Does Dallas to once again present the hottest cult film in a generation to the teaming masses! No! Because even at a Con that was devoted to the end of all things, we were still looking to the future. Specifically, the spiritual sequel to REPO! created by director Darren Lynn Bousman and writer/actor Terrance Zdunich - The Devil's Carnival. The trailer for this fine little film premiered the same weekend as All-Con and we were fortunate enough to be granted permission to premiere it at our show. And I can show it to you all here now...

Should you be interested in seeing more, know that TPTB are hitting the road and going on tour to preview the film in several selected venues over the coming months. Visit for more details and ticket sales!
