A friend posted a video clip from our old days as costumers at Marcon when we had two entries in the masquerade competition. The first was K’hoji, Secret Emperor of the Klingon Empire: a friends poodle with a warbled rubber forehead and pleather armor. The other was Zathras from Babylon 5. He had been my victim in a makeup demo earlier that day. The pretty woman he propositions is my wife in her Queen of Cups costume.
