Last month saw the first Denver Comic Con with a healthy starting attendance of nearly 20,000. There was a strong presence of the Doctor Who community in cosplay, attendees maxing out panel rooms and queueing to see a full-size Tardis. It is encouraging to see Colorado get their crack at getting some Who love in their own backyard. Thank you, Heather Maloney, for covering this and bringing it to the attention of the Doctor Who community on Twitter. You can read her full article here in the examiner.com. If you aren’t connected to her on Twitter at @DrWhoHeather, you just aren’t getting enough Who coverage in your life.
During the dry spell between series of Doctor Who, I am determined to keep myself busy with all things Who happening off telly. If there is something cool out there, I'll bring it in here and we can all squee over it, enjoy it or politely clap - whichever you feel inclined to do.
With this in mind, I hit paydirt today in the form of some beautiful cosplay featured on the Doctor Who Cosplay Livejournal forum. I just couldn't pass these up...
The peeps who brought you the Amy Pond Paradox at DragonCon are at it again! They are organizing another photoshoot for Gallifrey One 2012. Costume/outfit choices are going to be on a first-come, first-serve basis. They are also looking for a photographer since the one at DragonCon won’t be there for Gally. If anyone knows one who will be attending the convention that would like to do it, please contact me and I’ll put them in touch with you. It is tentatively set for Saturday but at this point the date has not yet been finalized. Stay tuned for more info as it comes in. (photo by Christa J. Newman)
