That's where they start, just keep clicking next. More will be added as the days go by.

Ooops I misspelled Lady Maelin's name when I posted the photos. I'll fix it later.

Here's the start of a third group of photos.

http://groups.msn.com/ClanFiend/laco...to&PhotoID=579

I've still got some photos of interesting costumes seen at World Con that I may upload in the next few days.

I have to tell you it was an absolute pleasure and delight it was to meet everyone in person. Definately one of the greatest highlights of WorldCon was meeting them in rl.

I loved seeing all of your L.A. World Con. 2006 pictures Sharon, your beautiful green dress I must have missed seeing you in. I was so happy to meet you and all the rest of the Anne fans...old friends and new. It was so wonderful to run around the convention and see a friendly face that you knew, and to wave and stop for a quick chat, and a "See you later Greeting".
Your "Gift of Love" hair donation was one of the lovest things I have heard of one of our members doing lately, my cheers to you, and I hope that your beautiful hair grows back quickly for you. Though as I told you there I think your new hair cut looks very good on you.

The green dress was worn on Thursday.

As for the hair, since I became an adult, my hair has gone in cycles long, short, long, short...It was time for a short cycle and I'd been contemplating it for awhile. When I saw on the Con site that they would have Locks of Love, I knew that would be the time and the place. I just wish I had done it years ago when I've gone from long to short. My hair does grow fairly quickly. Everyone who has seen the cut likes it. Even my mother.
