Photo's from times gone by...

Well I did some pre-pub reminiscing and now I've done some post-pub reminiscing. The result? A bunch of photo's of some of my very dearest friends (past and present), many of which who are on LJ and many of which may want to lynch me for putting the photo's up.

Gosh i had a mad moment there my head swam off to a hazy London graveyard, a tomb and me with my pals trying to be all straight faced at a poetry night. However when you have a would be Still very mortal vampire trying to chew your neck and wrists it kinda just all falls apart. Needless to say me and pals were kindly asked to leave.
Other Days filled with smell of Motor oil and burning rubber. Men throwing axes and women throwing them back, leather jackets with cracked and peeling artwork, how soft they were to lay on when your head felt like hell. Ah the old days and older friends, i feel memory lane a calling me sen.

Great pickies x

Glad to have been of service m'lady :p

Most of the 'gothy' pictures in this lot were actually taken at Camarilla games. Camarilla being a live-action roleplay society were we played - yep, you got it - vampires (amongst other things :p).

Are those GenCon photos Gencon US? Because if not, that sure as heck doesn't look like Camber :)

I'm guessing Monty has a picture in the attic...

Yeah, it was GenCon in Milwaukee back in 1994. It was the first GenCon after WotC brought out Nightfall and they took most of the Nightfallers over to the show with them.

corone looked very dashing. Meryc as a goth - hilarious !

You've always bene cute haven't you ?
It's nice to finally be able to put a face with the name Delphine.

shanks for sharing these pics, even if you do get lynched !

**corone looked very dashing.**
Corone generally looks dashing and is, along with Monty, probably the person I know who hasn't changed much in all the time I've known him (I think we met in '93/94?).

**Meryc as a goth - hilarious !**
I think I have other piccies of him around that time too... hehe...

**You've always bene cute haven't you?**
Why, thank my dear (bows) :p
I was quite 'cute' when I was younger but unfortunately the pounds have chased that away. I still have my hair and a cheeky smile though which, apparently, counts for something! I've also just renewed my gym membership yesterday in the effort to try and chase a few of those nasty punds away and head back up the 'cute' ladder before middle-age hits and I'm doomed!!!!

**It's nice to finally be able to put a face with the name Delphine.**
I'll post up a couple of others of her at somepoint.

**shanks for sharing these pics, even if you do get lynched !**
No problem. It was actually fun and I haven't been lynched yet (although I'm suspecting this might be because not everyone involved has checked my post yet :p)

'Corone generally looks dashing and is, along with Monty, probably the person I know who hasn't changed much in all the time I've known him'

I met 'Lord Corone' (as opposed to 'Andy') for, ooh, about five minutes at a VST game in Colchester about two years before we started going out. He did look very dashing, but was also rather scary (which, for someone so naturally fluffy, is pretty good roleplaying).

As for not changing...You're not alone, Angus, he definitely doesn't fit in any of his trousers from that era any more ;). Thank heavens for the magic powers of fab hair :).

Facial Pet?
Aug. 4th, 2006 12:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it adopted your chin I seem to remember.


Why haven't you aged you b******d????

I've known you for over 18 years now and you still (more or less) look the same!
Aug. 4th, 2006 01:57 pm (UTC)
Apparently he has a Craig to do his aging for him.
Aug. 4th, 2006 12:43 pm (UTC)
Andy P looks great.

I always love seeing old pictures of Grim as Top.
Aug. 4th, 2006 06:49 pm (UTC)
Those pictures remind me that Grim and I will have to play twins one day at some live gathering!
Aug. 4th, 2006 01:00 pm (UTC)

Aug. 4th, 2006 01:26 pm (UTC)

I've noticed a lot of the old Camarilla ones were originally mine.
Do you still have the negatives (which I remember you borrowing a long time ago) so I can get copies again?

Aug. 4th, 2006 04:03 pm (UTC)
I know at least the one of Surfer boy, me and the others in '95 is one of yours.

I think I've only got the actual photos of the others in the series as you leant me the negatives and I got a load made for myself and I'm pretty sure handed the negs back to you years ago.

I have all the photo folders in a draw though so I can check. There's actually a bundle of the photos which I don't really need (more personal ones for you I reckon) that you might be interested in.

Next time you come over ask me to dig them out and we can go through them. At very least if I don't have the negatives I can scan any you want and burn them onto a disc.
Aug. 4th, 2006 06:37 pm (UTC)
Quick scan would be fab, cheers!

BTW - Quick reminder - Web Hosting!!

Who is it in the 1995 Cam pic, they look familiar (the end one looks a bit like Emma who used to play that Toreador). Have you got a bigger version of that?

It's amazing how few pictures were taken of those early games.
Aug. 4th, 2006 08:22 pm (UTC)
Done. See later LJ entry.
Aug. 23rd, 2006 09:00 pm (UTC)
Oh my god..... shudder..... that was along time ago.
