Menogurgitating; a bloggy re-run ... Dress Up For Whitley!


Serendipity - was scheduling this 'dress-up' post anyway when darling Dory came up with <<<this idea...


So it was easy for me to join in today!!!


R U N   F R E E   W O N D E R F U L   W H I T L E Y!!!

Have been beavering away at pre-posting the bloggies before heading over to the BAR, and for the most part have been able to come up with original stuff. However, have decided that a couple of things can be re-posted from a couple years back, as the readership has altered/expanded and interest may be there...

... regarding my Sci-fi connection.  I first got fascinated simply because my father used to point out constellations to me and the idea of going into space was one of my earliest dreams.  

Then along came Star Trek.  I shall do a fuller blog later - this will be next Monday per re-post. For now, have a look at these. ...(YAMster is the short**** one in the veil...)



All costumes here were reproduced by hand of the wearers.





















The Power House Museum in Sydney has some amazing big-feature temporary exhibitions. Not least of these was the touring Photon Productions Star Trek show which hit pretty much the whole world.  Being deeply involved with a fan-run society I was able to take advantage of a call for 'specialist' volunteer status during the three months.  What is more, based on the accuracy of my hand-made costume (at the back here), I was picked as one of the half-dozen Universal Ambassadors and got to attend the high-class, ticket-only, VIP opening banquet. Guest Star? Gates McFadden who played Dr Beverly Crusher on the Next Generation series.























Another favourite show was Babylon 5 and, as co-organiser of some top-level conventions this again meant some wonderful mix'n'mingle moments...



...with Mira Furlan...







...and Michael O'Hare...






















...Joshua Cox...























...and the very scrumptious, absolutely delightful, Richard Biggs... can't believe it is 10 years (12 years, with this re-post) since he left for his own part of space. Lovely talent lost too early. This was taken in 1997...
























What I didn't write in this or the next post on the original 'publication' was my full experience with the science and sci-fi communities in Sydney... that is a Mac History post that has been in the waiting - and may yet for a little while, but I'll get round to it, I promise!

  2. Lovely photos of you there! Although I must confess that Star Trek is one of those things I've never quite 'got' (which for sure is my loss, given how much pleasure it seems to give to so many).
    Cheers,
    Gail.
    PS You'll have to wait a few more hours to see how Bertie dressed up for Whitley (assuming he doesn't press the delete button on the post while I'm asleep…)
