It's been there every year, and this year is no different the Tardis is returning.

I have good news they have found a replacement for Jewel Staite. It's Alaina Huffman: known for playing Abandon in Supernatural and Lt. Tamara Johansen in Stargate: Universe.

Another thing that is a tradition at the Con is to come in costume. This mainly happens on Saturday because of the Cosplay contest. This year I decided to go in costume. I don't plan on being part of the contest, but it should still be fun. I'm not going to say who or what I plan to be, but I will give this a hint:

Do you know what it is? If so post your guesses. I will be posting more as time progresses.

Oh cool, I love hearing about costume plans, and seeing the eventual photos. Your teaser image has be scratching my head. Looks like an eye. A mask? Some jewel that is part of a weapon? I really have no clue. Looking forward to your updates to come.

The Con is approaching nearer. Only about 50 days to go. I think it's about time for another hint. Don't you? Well here you go:

It's blue and black and...well that's about it.

Only about 30 more days to go. The anticipation just keeps building up.

How about a few more teasers?

Image

It's a nose! Well that's obvious, but who's nose is it? "Maybe you should keep your nose out of other people's business." I've heard that before.

Image

A jumble of black something. Gee I hope it doesn't move. That would be terrifying.

and finally:

Image

More black something. I'm sensing a theme here.

Any guesses yet? I still have a few more things to get to complete the costume. Hopefully it will be ready in time.

I know I didn't give any clues yesterday, but here are 2 for today.

Image

A rubber chicken necklace and a blue pocket square. One weird combination, but it works.

pagemaster - I've been watching your clues and I'm still stumped on your identity. And yet, I feel like I SHOULD know it. That nose seems familiar. The hair, the fabric colors... and that rubber chicken is such a specific sort of item... how can I not guess this?! How "famous" is your character? I get the feeling it will either be someone I don't even know, or it will be so obvious that I'm kicking myself after your reveal.

Well, I guess the time is here so have fun at the convention! I can't wait to see any photos and hear your recap of the event, if you chose to share these things (I hope you do!) Have a blast.

It has been a couple of days since the con closed. Had a great time, and I'm finally revealing the secret.

Clear all air waves for the big announcement!

I went as non-other than Svengoolie.

Here's a closer look:

I did get an autograph from Billy from Gremlins:

I also picked up this gem:

I didn't get many pictures this year. I can't wait until next year, and am already thinking of my next cosplay.
