Gallifrey One : Station 27

So I went to my second "con" - Gallifrey One : Station 27, the largest Doctor Who convention in the U.S.  Nevada, my husband and I left on February 11th from San Jose to LAX.  Here we are on the plane.


Someone doesn't look too excited ...

The first night we registered and then walked to In-n-Out with about 150 of our closest friends.  The wait in line was about an hour, but well worth it. Note the red ribbon below ....


The next morning we sat in line to see attend the Welcome panel ...

 Sitting on the floor in my "stealth" cosplay (not quite Osgood - just glasses and a Tom Baker scarf).

 A Dalek and an Ood ...


 
 
the Dalek in motion .. actually, people kept walking in front of me ...
 
 And here is the 5th doctor, Peter Davison.  He was very entertaining.
We spent the day in this room, watching and listening to various Doctor Who actors.  It was wonderful.

 Me and Nevada at the end of the day ...

The next day, Saturday, is the big cosplay day.  I'd say 60-70 percent of the attendees dress up, one way or another.  Nevada and I also participated.  We dressed as two companions from Classic Who -- Tegan and Nyssa. 

... getting ready at the hotel...

No pictures of the three of us together ... dunno why not.

The last day, Feb. 14, we went to two interviews: Sir John Hurt (the War Doctor among his many accomplishments) and Samuel Anderson.  They were both great interviews.  What an awesome weekend! Then the flight home and crashing ..
