Grumpy Dragon at RavenCon, Part I

I had a lot of fun at RavenCon this past weekend, but I wasn’t alone. No, I took the Grumpy Dragon himself, Windsor, with me to the convention. We gathered a bunch of pictures of him with the cosplayers (people dressed in costume).

Windsor behaved so well, he even got a name tag from the staff. There were so many pictures of him with people, I’m going to do several posts. For this one, we’ll just stick with the many superheroes and super villains we encountered this weekend.

The Umbrella Corporation must be suffering budget cuts. We get one of their soldiers but no Milla Jovovich? Bummer.

Hope you enjoyed these. I’ll post the rest of my pictures with Windsor and the cosplayers tomorrow. You’ll see him with characters from Doctor Who, Star Trek and Star Wars (among others).
