09/05/09 - In an attempt to spread the word about LOF's Theme Days and how we use cosplay in paintball, a dozen members of the LOF family traveled to Atlanta, GA and marched in the DragonCon 2009 Parade. For those that are unfamiliar, DragonCon is an annual gathering (every Labor Day weekend) of 30,000+ geeks to celebrate all forms of sci-fi, fantasy, comics, art, cosplay, etc. Though we planned to attend as characters from several different theme days, events beyond our control steered us to all go as Monty Python's Holy Grail characters from the theme day of the same name. All efforts proved to be worthwhile, when after the parade, we met up with Terry Gilliam (co-director, animator and actor of HOLY GRAIL) and Neil Innes (musician and actor of HOLY GRAIL). It was a true treat to listen to these two tell their adventures while filming the movie back in 1975. Pictures of our time with them can be seen by clicking here. Thanks to our 'support staff' (not pictured above) - Shawn Smith, Wayne Smith and Kira Sherrill.
