Rocky Horror Philly Con -- Page Two
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.

Random ballroom babes! From left to right are TNP's Charlene Windham (who I believe
was the first of the Rocky Horror Girls Gone Wild), Becky "Angry Inch and
a Half" from the Tolls of Madness (who looks a lot like my niece in that
uniform), Tara Kulbatski from Home of Happiness (who has monkeys coming out of
her navel), and Jenn S. (who is the director of Lechez-Moi).
From left to right: Mellon, sitting out in the non-smoking area (you
know, where all the ashtrays were); Brooks Goolsby (Lambda Psi Phi), who
reminded me of something from Urusei Yatsura, though I doubt that was
what he intended; and Wally Barsell as Ace from Mega Force (starring
Old faces (Jason Kline, on-and-off castmate with me as well as with Home of
Happiness; and former castmate Adriana) and a new face (Kailey Kris Defina with
her father Kyle, cast director of Sweet Translucent Dreams)!
From left to right ... umm ... a whole bunch
of Shock Treatment characters...
From left to right: Emily Agustin of Chicago's Midnight Madness as Nurse Ansalong,
PI's Wally Barsell as Nation McKinley, Tom Amici and Jessica Feldman as Brad and
Janet Majors, and ??? as the wardrobe mistress.
The beginning, middle, and end of Shock Treatment. That was pretty
quick, wasn't it? (This actually was, overall, one of the better convention
ST performances I've seen.)
A quick shot from the panel discussion.
