Video of WorldCon 71 / LoneStarCon 3 Firefly Shindig

P1030063Feast your eyes! One of the highlights of the WorldCon/LoneStarCon was a recreation of the ball from the episode “Shindig.” Friday night, August 30th, there was a huge gathering in the main ball room and some folks were dressed to the nines. There a two ladies that were wearing beautiful gowns and I found out that this was their twentieth WorldCon. Man, that has got to be expensive! But, it is a great show, so well worth it.

Music was provided by Lissa Bengston and the Lost and Nameless Orchestra out of Austin. Lissa was the caller like you’d find at a square dance and this was very similar. The song is called “Russian Orange Dressing” and I’ve been trying to find a copy of it, because it is so Firefly. If any of you can place it, let me know.

It’s taken me a while to post this. I’ll add a post later that tells of my trip overall and why it took me so long to get back into the swing of things. If any of you were there, drop me a line!
