Gallifrey One Cosplay

At Gallifrey One this past weekend, when asked what surprised her most about going to conventions, Ingrid Oliver (Osgood) said it was the cosplay. It was a welcome surprise to see so many versions of her running around. Later, Clare Higgins (Ohila), attending her first convention, said she had not realized that we were tribe. She’s happy to be a part of it. Though I only caught one Osgood on camera (there were so many you would think the Zygons had overrun the place), here are a few shots of the tribe going all out — celebrating their love of Who through cosplay.

As I often say, the family that cosplays together,
saves a fortune in therapy bills later…

The guy behind the Veil seems so nonchalant…

These Sisters of Karn were waiting for Starbucks… and gave me a ribbon that said “What happens on Karn, stays on Karn.”

A favorite costumed pair, especially for Patricia Quinn in attendance, Julie and Douglas do the ultimate Timewarp…
Frankly, I’m a little envious of both costumes… I at least want the apron…

Sunday’s cosplay crash panel… discussing how to safely pack costumes, break down expansive props, etc. for travel.
Seen here, Kevin Roche and his robot dog (which would be a fantastic children’s book title) and Christine Evans
