All Dressed Up With Some Place to Go: The Fashion Show at Dallas All-Con 2011

Woke up this morning to find in the in-box a series of photos Danny Hurley took yesterday at the Crowne Plaza North Dallas on Midway, site of this weekend's Dallas All-Con, which wraps this evening for those still in need of weekend plans. Though it doesn't draw the guest list of, say, the Sci-Fi Expo (Richard "Apollo" Hatch is the biggest draw), it would appear from Danny's upcoming slide show they're not the main attraction anyhow. Why, it's Halloween in March! And, notes special-effects Danny, steampunk, The Fifth Element and The Wizard of Oz have replaced Star Wars as the dresser-upper's influence of choice, at least this go-round. A few more peeks on the other side.
