I adventured against type today, and attended the Dragon*Con 2008 parade downtown. What a terrific amount of joy and ingenuity we saw from our perch on a decorative architectural ledge! I loved these box costumes! I often find more-with-less is inspiring.
One costume element I found icky-gross: a woman’s mask made from a cow pelvis (I think; it was certainly real bone).
Celebrity sightings: we saw Adam West in a Batmobile talking on a red batphone (or faking same) and waving to the crowd. James, while attending his comics vending table, saw Kevin Sorbo.
