This is my "biker slut" costume from Windycon
1991. Yes, I wore this to work at the United Methodist Church
office for Halloween the next year. Note the "biker gopher"
on the floor, made by the toymaker Elaine!
From Chicon, the World Science Fiction Convention
in 1991, this is my "Mad Max Universe Post-Apocalyptic Ragpicker"(I
had a thing for sucked-in cheeks that year). The guy to whom
I handed my camera managed to cut off my foot, so it's hard to

Here is Jake again, as the Gnome of Knowledge, the
Ax of Facts, the Drew Carey of the So-Smart-He's-Scary! The one,

couldn't get anybody to wear the ratsuit.) The photo processing
lab thought that the coat was supposed to be yellow--I did the
best I could greening it up, but now it looks like it glows in
the dark, which it just well might! Taken at Windycon 1997.
This is me at Windycon in 1999, as Aeryn Sun from
"Farscape". If you don't buy that, let's just call
it paramilitary duds and leave it at that.
Also from Windycon 1999, here I am dressed as Dana
Scully of the X-Files. The fake FBI badge features a Northwestern
University seal and is authorized by J. Edgar Hoover. The fake cross
necklace came from Woolworth's.
