We're back with the last round of DragonCon 2010 pics, and, as they say in the movies, this time, it's personal! Here's the best of the pics we took of ourselves in costume.
Jo had to pose with this fellow Pokemon trainer.
This was the year of new hall costumes for the Gratzes this year. After wearing her Mitsumi Pokemon costume everywhere on Friday, Jo dyed her hair red to be...
Ginny Weasley! The dye wasn't as red as any of us wanted, but it gave her a nice strawberry blonde, which is hard to see in the pictures.
Ginny and Dumbledore.
Ginny and Wendi, on the escalator.
Staying with the Harry Potter theme, I went for Sirius Black.
I still maintain that I looked more like Weird Al Yankovic than Sirius Black, but plenty of people who saw me gave a shout out for Sirius, so I suppose it was close enough.
Ginny sure thought I was the real thing!
Ginny and Wendi. Wendi wasn't trying to pull of a particular character, just a robe-wearing witch from the HP world.
That night, we all went down into the gaming dungeons to check out some board games and card games we'd never played.
Jo looked totally awesome in her school outfit.
Sunday was Star Wars day. Here's Jo with her face painted to look like Barriss Offee, the padawan of Jedi Master Luminara Unduli. Awesome!
Sunday morning just happened to be the Jedi lightsaber training session for kids, and Jo definitely looked the part.
Barriss meets a young Princess Leia.
Lunch break for the Jedi! Yes, Wendi and I were in Jedi garb as well--but did we ever think to snap shots of ourselves? No! And my outfit, based on Mace Windu's was pretty kickass. Ah well, there's always next year.
Join me, and together we can RULE DragonCon as father and daughter!
That's it for this year's DragonCon pics. Hope you've enjoyed them! We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog...
