Sunday's DragonCon pictures are up now, and you can see more cool costumes and exciting events. On our third day at the convention, Halman and Hades got an ice cream cake, and LOAF and Shades had a long discussion about the Wing Commander timeline. Now that it's Tuesday, we've all arrived home, but there'll be a few final pictures and some smaller quirky galleries up soon. We were busy all week, and it went by super fast. During the parade and while walking around in uniform, we met a surprising number of people who recognized us and shouted out how excited they were to see Wing Commander fans represented.
The Team America officers in the top picture belted out the "America!" theme song until security tackled them and made them stop. The last three costumes are Super Butters from South Park, Barf from Space Balls and random people in the Hyatt.
Just kidding. Today actually marks fifteen years of continuous daily WC news updates. The last day we missed was May 25, 2003, short of the occasional technical issue that may have slightly delayed the daily news a bit. (2018-05-26)

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
