I just got done looking at pictures of Dragon, who is apparently in LA and doing quite well. Making props for skiffy movies, as far as I can tell. Good for him - I'm delighted to find out that he's doing what he wanted to do. The Renegade Effects Group site is quite the impressive resume.

What is unusual is the photographs were shown to me by one of my coworkers, who I would not have pegged as a big SF fan. As far as I know, she isn't - but she knows Cyn Mason, and thereby the world.

She (my coworker) has photographic evidence of being hugged by Dragon, as well. Just for the record, you know...

Edited to add link (from IMDb, no less). Plus I should be clearer that we were only acquaintances, back when I was more active in the SF convention circuit. But he was always a sweetheart, did fantastic costuming work and was never snobbish about his talent or achievements. I had heard he'd moved south some years back, and it really tickles me (and does my heart good) to see his success.

You know him too? Guess you would since he lived in this part of the country for awhile. I met him at a convention -- probably Norwescon -- before I moved here. I am also delighted to know that he gets to play for a living.

He's been doing that for awhile. I lost the convention habit after I moved, but he was part of the programming of one of the last ones that I went to. He was showing slides of his work and talking about his adventures.

[Thanks for reminding me I wanted to go back and add a link - I posted this in a hurry from work and didn't have time to look for an appropriate one.]

For some value of 'know' - *grin* I'm sure he wouldn't remember me, but he's a striking figure, himself, and very gifted. The photos were taken at his house, and we played "name that movie" from the props and things in the background while we looked at them.
