Rocky Horror Philly Con -- Page One

RHPS Philadelphia Freedom... [ Page One | Page Two ]

The Philly RHPS Con was held October 18-19, 2002, at the Best Western (Can we sue them for false advertising? Henceforth, we ought to call them Worst Western) Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It wasn't the most organized con, but most people had fun -- in fact, several people I know who usually have issues with each other seemed to be getting along just fine. I was calling it the Age of Aquarius; naturally, though, as soon as people got back home and got onto the newsgroup, that changed pretty fast. Still, we have those peace 'n love memories of Philadelphia Freedom Rock... Heh, too bad Uncle wasn't there in Elton John mode. "Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man..." Uh-huh, right Elton, what are you doing down there?

But I digress. I was there with my new digital camera, with plenty of space on the compact flash card, and batteries that were almost dead. Ooops. So here's what I've got that isn't too dark or blurry to fix. As always, I'm horrible at remembering names and placing them to faces; so if any captions need to be added or corrected, just email me.

I started with these two because Philadelphia is the City of Brotherly Love (and Sisterly too, Magenta, don't get your panties in a twist). At left are Ron Maxwell and Kevin Boycik as Brad Majors and Farley Flavors, orphaned twin brothers re-united after many years apart. Also seperated at birth, but loving the same bumblebee-motif color scheme, are Arthur Levesque (me) and Bill Brennan as Ryoga Hibiki (Ranma 1/2) and Bert Schnik. I like the reflection off of his cane, it looks like a light saber. I suspect I may have just inspired a new round of fanfiction from Bill...

 
The Q&A room was the location of much drinking (my infamous punch, and lesser libations) and game-playing. Apples To Apples is a scrumptulescent game that I suspect will appear at many cons in the future (go here for blank cards). The games played in our room didn't require any stripping, though there were many victory dances and people falling off of the bed...

   
Random hallway madness (from left to right): A man auto-fellating his balloon-sculptured naughy bits, Linda Brennan after spankin' da wyne, a hoopy girl (Tori Halperin of Satanic Mechanics) who knows where her towel is, and a pair of panties stuck in the Horse Brutality Suite door.

  

  

Random hallway babes! From left to right, top to bottom: Babs, Taccarra Burrell of Satanic Mechanics, ???, Erica of Satanic Mechanics, Adama, Nina and Sky (the head of RKO's Official Groupies)

Of course, it's this sort of sadomasochistic knees-bent running around advancing behavior in the hallways that really upset the little old ladies who were unwitting and unwilling members of the Philly RHPS Con...

  
LEFT: Fred surprised everyone by being at the con.
CENTER: I'm going to go waaaaaaaay out on a limb and guess that this Geo that I saw in the parking lot belongs to Fred...
RIGHT: Bradwinkle makes another con appearance, with Paisley Fedora of the Pink Invaders.

  
The many faces (and cool socks) of Outcast Spice

 
One face of Sherri "Mom" Timmerman and two of Q

[SLIDE MISSING]
Number Twenty-Seven: The face of Reginald Maudlin

 
The convention also marks the end of an era -- Sal Piro's closet is empty (I can say that with a straight face, really). He raffled and auctioned away the last of his rare Rocky memoribilia.
