Hello all,

I'm looking for a picture of an adorable Rainbow Dash (no more than 5 years old) in a picture with a guy dressed like Spike the Dragon.  The little girl had a rainbow wig, blue dress with rainbow trim and Cutie Mark.  Spike the Dragon was wearing a crochet purple and greed "dragon spike" hat, and a Rarity Fan t-shirt.  The picture was taken in the food court during the impromptu "Pony Party".

If you were among the swarm there and have a copy of the picture, please link me!  It was a very cute moment as the little girl was excited to meet Spike and I'd like a memento of the moment.

Hi. My friend and I dressed as the two versions of Fringe's Olivia Dunham this year. If anyone has seen any pictures of us in the DC 2012 pictures on the web, I'd appreciate a link or head's up. I haven't been able to find any in my searches. Thanks!!

Did you attend any Space Track talks? Did you get pictures? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! If you have pictures from any Space Track talks I would dearly love to have copies. Please send them to space@dragoncon.org. Thanks.

Have to say that Dragon*Com was pretty amazing for the Space Track this year!! Most of the panels were full and more than a few had to turn people away.

We also had our first true 'celebrity' guest. If you missed the James Marsters 'MoonShot' talk, you missed a fun time. Yes, he was late to the panel but he more than made up for it. Was anyone else surprised at just how knowledgeable he was on all the information regarding the Apollo 11 Moon landing?! I certainly was. He was also as nice and cooperative as any track director could wish for. Huge thanks to James Marsters and it was great to hear the song he wrote about his experience shooting 'MoonShot'.

Space Track also got to be a part of the Richard Garriott talk which turned out to be a really good move since he focused most of his talk on his trip to the ISS. : ) Turned out that he has a connection to another of my guests this year - Dr. June Scobee Rodgers, widow of Commnader Dick Scobee of the Challenger Shuttle tragedy. She was his high school science teacher and they have remained very close friends. Garriott told me just before his talk that he wasn't going to leave Con immediately, instead he had changed his plans to stay and join Dr. Scobee Rodgers on her talk on Sunday! I kept that news to the Space Track only, thereby ensuring we had an audience of only space enthusiasts for that talk. Garriott had me fooled for a few moments. He looked so formal in his suit and tie; then he turned his head and his very long 'rat's tail' braid came into view!! : ) A very interesting and charming man.

Speaking of Dr. Scobee Rodgers, what an AMAZING WOMAN!!!! I had no idea of her background and as she spoke she enthralled the entire room. Never expected to be so moved by a talk anywhere at Dragon*Con but she had the entire room crying. No lie, everyone including Garriott, had tears. Given that I'm very emotional to be begin with, I wept like a baby. She is made of very strong stuff.

I could go on and on, the entire track turned out so great but I'll edit and just mention our final panel, 'Salute to 30 Years of the Shuttle & Farewell Shuttle Party'. What a blast!! : ) We had shuttle trivia with good prizes. We had a double chocolate cookie with a shuttle on it and we had LN2 ice cream!!! We also got a little crazy, playing with the LN2. Frozen grapes, frozen smarties candies and frozen tortilla chips that when you put them in your mouth allowed you to blow smoke! There are pictures out there just waiting to truly embarrass me!

Thank you to everyone who joined us this year. It's you who make doing the Space Track so much fun. I'm already planning big things for 2012. It will be my 10th year with Dragon*Con and my 5th year as Space Track Director. I LOVE feedback! Send me any comments, suggestions, etc. at space@dragoncon.org.

Be happy. Be safe. Until next year -

Hello, does anyone have a video of the Carrie Fisher panel from Sunday? I absolutely have to have it and can't wait two months to buy it, lol.

On that note, where would I buy it anyways? I went to dragoncontv.com and didn't see where to buy ANY vids.

Thanks guys!

ETA: I would also love any pictures you guys have-- I'm the girl who got to kiss Carrie Fisher and I've been looking everywhere for pictures, haha. I did find that CNN article but I want pictures of us actually kissing : )

Hi everyone--

I'm in (hopeful) search of pictures/and or video of the Amy Pond with the Doctor Who crowd who fell down during the parade this past con, and thought this would be the best place to ask. For reference, this is what I was wearing.

I hate asking this, but I'm looking for a photo (or photos) from 2005.  I had a server crash recently and, apparently, my backups weren't as good as I thought.

It's a shot of me as Professor Quirrell from Harry Potter in the parade.  Specifically, there was one which had the cloak billowing back, but any would be appreciated.

I've searched a bunch of photo archives, but am hoping someone here can help.

Hey guys. I was hoping that someone could help me find the man that was taking photos in the Marriott against a gold background on Saturday night. He took pictures of me in my costume and would like to contact him to see if I could get a print.

He had a pretty professional style set-up and said that he would post the pictures he took on his website. I was given a piece of paper with web address on it, but it went to visit my missing socks in lost land. If any has his name or the address, I would greatly appreciate it.

BTW: I was the girl in gold and brown 19th century dress with gold masquerade mask.

pics plz?

Every year after Dragon*Con I invariably end up spending a lot of time looking over flickr. I'm looking for pics of myself, my friends, stuff that I missed, and those really beautiful shots that talented (and/or lucky) photographers get.

I like flickr and in general I think it's a great place to post photos. Clearly many folks agree since over 73,000 Dragon*Con photos have been uploaded in the past few weeks.

The problem with flickr is this:
Basically flickr queries appear to be limited to 4000 results. Sure that sounds like a lot, but there are 18 times that many for dragoncon. Stick to a basic search (even viewing a tag) and you'll miss out on 94% of them. Sure you can look at the 4000 "most interesting," but there are a ton of great shots that missed that bus. Early uploads get a head start on views and favs and become the kings of flickr's 4000-limit hill.

This year I was on a mission to find some photos that I knew would be hard to find, so I wanted a way to trawl flickr effectively and efficiently. Something that would:

  • hit every dragoncon photo, within reason
  • support sane stop and resume -- 73k is a /lot/ to for one session
  • minimize repeat views -- the numbers get a lot bigger when you start seeing photos more than once

This gets a little long, so I'm putting sections behind cuts.

This is what I came up with )

If you took pictures of all the wonderful steampunk costumes at Dragoncon this year, and they are on Flickr.com, please add them to our group here. It is moderated due to stupidity in the past, but they will be posted quite quickly. Thanks!

Hi, I'm trying to find a specific photo from the X-men shoot on Saturday evening at the Hilton. The one shot of all the X-men versus Magneto. If anyone has any information as to someone who has posted this photo, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

Been looking at a lot of flickr pics.
I feel like "Deadpool photo mislabeled as Spider-Man" needs to be on a post-dcon bingo sheet somewhere. ;)
Did you dress up as Deadpool? Looking for pics? Don't forget to search for spiderman.
