Denvention 3 Video Diary

Now that I have my own video recorder I am able to supplement my Worldcon reports with visuals. This is particularly useful when talking about art or costumes. Here is the video that I shot at the 2008 Worldcon, Denvention 3.

We start with a tour of an art show exhibit in the company of the artist himself, the very wonderful John Picacio.

The rest of the video was shot backstage at the masquerade. The intention was to show you a lot more about how the costumes are made. Here are Sandy & Pierre Pettinger (alias Oberon and Titania).

Here is some more video from the masquerade. It features the velociraptor costumes that won Best in Show for Workmanship (despite being a journeyman entry). Huge congratulations to Charles Orndorff, Jennifer Strand, Michael Bruno and Tauni Orndorff for a fabulous entry.

This time we have one of my den – the very talented Vandy Vandervort, costumed as The Great Garuda. Vandy won special recognition in the workmanship awards (Master division) for the papier-mache headpiece.

And finally, my favorite costume from this Worldcon. Stephen Clark’s bear is one of the most impressive costumes I have ever seen, and the video tells you a lot that won’t have been at all obvious if you only saw it on stage.
