|Hey, your screwdriver is bigger than mine!|
Once at the bookstore we quickly discovered that some sort of timey-wimey paradox had occurred; I had a doppelganger attempting to usurp my role as the 4th Time Lord! This sharply-dressed fellow (with quite a bit more scarf than I, meaning that he came from a point further "down-stream" in the Doctor's time line) and I joined in the trivia contest and found ourselves dead-locked; we soon realized that Mr. Baker's personification of our hero was broad enough for two cos-players and quickly joined forces.
But we weren't alone! The 10th Doctor (complete with red trainers and "modern" hair) joined the party and, along with a very young lad in a red bow-tie and suspenders (hmmm...can't imagine "Who" he might have been!) had a good time with the displays. There were quite a few Whovians of all ages, which is always a pleasure to see.
In addition to the trivia contest and costumed fun, the young 'uns each took a turn at building Adipose "children" out of marshmallows and toothpicks (yuck!), and a raffle closed the evening, prizes going to three of the younger fans. Lucy and I left for dinner and a movie--a private screening of "Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D."!
An excellent time, I think, was had by all.
