Vintage photos: 1980 Sci-Fi Convention

Monday

NOPE, SORRY. No April Fools Day blogs posts from me this year. Instead, I've brought you some amazing nerd treasure.

Ever wonder what a Fantasy/Sci-Fi convention might have looked like in the year 1980? Well wonder no further! I came across these gems over the weekend and could not get over how fantastic these photos from Westercon 1980 are!









Cosplay sure has come a long way during the last 33 years. But still, you can't help but appreciate how far fandom has come. I've finally gotten Jeremy interested enough that he'll be making his cosplay debut soon enough. :)

Can't get enough of how amazing these all are? View the rest here.

If you could dress up as a character at a scifi/fantasy convention, who would you choose?
My list is pretty endless. <3

  1. Awesome! =D

    I've actually cosplayed before... I was Emi from DDR (http://studiokitsu.net/gallery/sculptures/emipinky/Emireference2.jpg) back when I played DDR all the time, and I used to be into EGL too, so had a few lolita/kodama costumes.

    Now, I think I'd totally go as Starbuck!

  2. @EFF. EMI IS TOTALLY MY FAVORITE DDR CHARACTER (Sorry Alice!).

    And I definitely think you could pull off a good Starbuck. :)
