Photos from the Plokta Vaults

Potlatch and Corflu

Alison Freebairn sidled up to me at 2Kon while I was looking through the Corflu pictures. "That's the softball game, isn't it? Hey, Ulrika looks like the cover from the FatBoy Slim album." Thereby proving that Alison is a Wicked Woman.

One person we were really pleased to meet was Kate Schaefer, who gave us our first chance to see, live in the flesh, her Herbert Hoover Action Figure.

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a dam

One major problem with Seattle is the number of down and outs you find lying around the place.

Spare a dime for a cup of Corflu?

In her pogonophobic guise, Alison Freebairn was passing round a set of false moustaches. We'd previously seen these and considered buying them for Pat McMurray, so that he could prove how macho he is. One person who has no fear of her masculinity being questioned was Tami Vining.

The 2Kon Masquerade: SMS as Dick Dastardly, Eira as Muttley, with Matt & Miche as the Pantomime Horse

One of the particular delights of running the not-really-a-creche-honest-guv was that we had an excellent room. Which allowed us to have a room party.

SMS & Eira's wedding

In a blatant attempt to ingratiate themselves with a wide selection of deities, SMS and Eira took polytheism to its logical conclusion and got married on three separate occasions. The Plokta cabal took digital cameras to all three. The first was a Methodist affair.

Eira & SMS
Look! The Winged Victory of Samothrace

At the handfasting, the happy couple jumped over a broom, here displayed by Astral Leauge mistress Miche, and fed cake and mead to each other in an outrageous display of phlosque.

I've mislaid my Snitch again

SMS & Eira
Have you phlosqued recently, darling?

Finally, at the civil ceremony, the perseverance of the crowd was rewarded, as SMS's full name was finally revealed. Sealed bids should be sent to Plokta HQ.

Eira & SMS on the flying trapeze
Are you sure this is how we're supposed to consummate the marriage, dear?
