Have you hugged your Klingon today? Partook of Romulan ale?
By the way, is that the white hand of Saruman on that bounty hunter above?
Here is one more special gallery to finish off my SheVaCon 18 collection. All photos are low resolution. Inquire for high res – I am not charging for them. Just include attribution in all usages and links, please. All photos copyright 2010 by David Bartell.
SheVaCon 18, 2010 (page 4) of pictures.
A great knight dons his armor for one last battle of the day – the costume contest!
SheVaCon holds all kinds of workshops for artists and costumers. This lovely entrant models the “Discreet Companion”, a lady’s ray gun that appeared in Make Magazine. Here’s a video showing how to make your own.
We must salute those who gave of themselves to protect the hotel perimeter:
Meanwhile, other battles beg to be waged:
And in another inner sanctum:
Costume judges do not score on swordsmanship, but they may otherwise be “influenced” by it:
I’m tellin’ ya, folks, black and red are the colors of the millenium. If you don’t believe me, check out my pictures from other conventions (especially Capclave 2009)
Black and Red represent Dark and Dangerous.

General photography, colored slides, 3D photography, astrophotography, B&W darkroom, medium format film, hand retouching, computer retouching and composite, studio photography. The rough draft self-portrait in the bio-basics post was taken with my new Nikon D90, serial number 3001030. It’s my first digital SLR. (My manager at my first job at Vienna Theatre taught me that if you fold your arms a certain way, it looks like you have muscles. I think I’m making a Buddhist sign with my fingers.)
Previously, I shot with a Canon A1, which I loved dearly, and dragged all over the world. I still love film, and miss the things it can do that digital can’t. By this time, however, digital has many more advantages, especially since the resolution is so much higher these days. And with a plasma screen and HDMI cable, the slide show comes close (but not too close) to a colored slide show.
Dabbled in film (8mm, 16mm, video), animation, special film effects (Scotchlite and green screen compositing, etc.) Worked in trivial roles in a couple Hollywood and indie films. Click here for details. Chairman of the University of Virginia Cinematheque committee (a couple years after Sam Hamm was – writer of the first Batman movie.) Wrote several screenplays, and a couple teleplays. I even had an agent hawking some ST:TNG stuff, to no avail.
Nowadays, I spend time converting videos to DVDs. My film aspirations remain unquenchable – I spend too much time editing, synching sound, adding effects, etc. Instead of printing my digital photos, I make multimedia shows out of them – a fancy sort of scrapbooking, I suppose.
