Grumpy Dragon at RavenCon, Part II

Windsor, the Grumpy Dragon, is still nursing a hangover from celebrating the end of RavenCon. We both had a busy weekend with me speaking at the convention and him… um, well. He didn’t really do much beyond pose for pictures with some of the cosplayers (people dressed in costume).

I posted a bunch of the pictures yesterday. This time, we’ll bring you a more sci-fi oriented selection. Windsor is still a tad perturbed with me, because I didn’t get a picture of him with the Slave Leia who was there the first day. I think a few of the ladies in today’s selections made up for that.

I promise Windsor was not to blame for the damage to that Stormtrooper.

Poor Windsor is freaking out. No, not about the weeping angel. It's another Eleventh Doctor fez! (And if I had to guess the young lady on the right is Cecil Palmer from Night Vale)

Can a Dalek exterminate Windsor's grumpiness? Doubtful.

Wait a minute. Windsor doesn't look Grumpy now. But that's impossible! Oh... it's Clara.

No clue what these two young ladies were cosplaying, but this was only one set of many outfits they wore during the weekend.

Here are the young ladies again. Again, I have no guess what these costumes are, but the outfits I didn't get pictures of included a cosplay from" Attack on Titan."

Windsor really liked these two. Meet Pixel Artist Nathan Skreslet and his wife Ly (the business brains) from "<a href="http://www.pixelwho.com/">Pixel Who</a>."

A wider shot with some of the artwork from "Pixel Who." This is a picture with all the character from the Tenth Doctor's run on "Doctor Who." Whovians should definitely check out <a href="http://www.pixelwho.com/">Pixel Who</a>."
