Note. Careful readers will infer from “Iron Man vs. Doctor Doom” (Master) not entering as a Re-Creation, and its workmanship award, but in the interests of clarity I report both characters were in 16th Century clothing, Iron Man in a ruff, Victoria (note spelling) Von Doom in full skirts wielding a two-handed sword.

  1. Will there be photographs posted anywhere? There was no information on the Westercon site. Several members of MonSFFA are costumers, or keen fans of costumers, so we would love to be able to post links to photographs on our website.
