I've been waiting to post this -- y'all know we went to the 2009 Hugo awards in Montreal, Canada, which is, of course, the Oscars of science fiction.
I'd posted a while back asking if there were any designers who wanted to loan trillian_stars something to wear and freaking Kambriel called to say "I'm sending you some stuff." Kambriel. Like Kam-freaking-biel.
It was all top secret for a week, but here's what trillian_stars wore to the Hugos last night (it seems like a month ago, seriously):
And, sweet barking cheese! Kambriel also custom made me a jacket to wear! Here I am looking all badass in it at the restroom at the bar at the Intercontinental:
Now, since going to the Hugos is a Big Nerd Deal, and we were all decked out. we felt it imperative that we practice our entrance, which we did, numerous times in an roped-off corridor filled with broken hockey sticks and maple syrup bottles:
We figured we should charge in like Russell Crowe and Sigourney Weaver (were they attending the Hugos and feeling surly).
But, in the end, we figured that really wasn't us and we sort of bounced in like happy rabbits:
This strategy must have worked, because we found out later in the evening That Trillian had won the 2009 Hugos Best Dressed Award (!!!!)
Our (as he would say) looovly friend Neil Freaking Gaiman won for Best Novel and brings home one of the most beautiful Hugo's I've ever seen. We sadly had to leave early and miss that because .........
because ... I was guest photographer for an upcoming issue of Abe and Kronen which we shot that night into the wee hours of the morning. The episode I did (I have been sworn to secrecy) should come out in the next three weeks which gives y'all a chance to read some back issues and get caught up on Guillermo del Tormo's favorite web-comic. This is my 2xcreative for the month of August.
I will say this (secrecy be damned) it rocks.
Fabiola across the board!!
I can't even begin to express how amazing trillian_stars
's outfit is. I'm delurking [mostly] to exclaim my utter delight. And she positively owns it. Gorgeous.
So awesome! Trillian looked beautiful (as usual) in that dress. The jacket - not really umm... you... but you pulled it off nicely, and I like the shot in the hallway!
I'm not a fashionista, but I have to say this: trillian_stars
looks PHENOMENAL in that outfit! Seriously! She wears it beautifully!
And you look smashing in that jacket, too. ;)
Congrats on the Abe and Kronen gig.
Ummm... WOW. Those outfits are gorgeous, as are the two of you, of course. :)
I'm glad you made it back safely and I want to doubly confirm that abe_kroenen
is going to be rad
But mostly, I would like to gloat for a moment about the fact that I predicted
the best-dressed win. Of course, it was a pretty easy call to make because, really, how could she not
You're so awesome! Your whole family is awesome, and it was a wonderful thing to witness all that incredible creativity at work. I can't wait to see that episode air!
pplz can always send us stuff at:
Kyle Cassidy & Trillian Stars
P.O. Box 30901
Philadelphia, PA 19104.
Gorgeous, both of you.
And wow, your hair is getting really long.
yeah, it is. i keep asking trillian "should i cut this?" and she keeps saying "i ... don't know...." so there it is. she's the one who gets to decide what it looks like (cause, you know, she has to look at it more than anyone).
we actually sat in the back and snuck out in the middle.
(but we looked darn good coming up the red carpet!)
I don't know what's better, Trillian's wonderful dress or your awesome jacket. I've seen Kambriel's stuff mentioned on various photo sites/portfolios and always thought, oooooh.
I love how "some nice guy" not only got a good shot of you two but also managed to get Neil Freaking Gaiman in it. :o)
I will definitely check out Abe and Kroenen, looks like fun.
Kyle, it was awesome to meet you this weekend/have my picture taken by you. Also, I did see you two swoop by while we were heading over. My group of friends discussed how lovely you both looked for a few minutes after that.
Well, until some other shiny thing distracted us.
Oh, like y'all weren't hot enough already. ROWR!
I like that look on you, Kyle. But then, I'm GAF, so I would.
The picture of Trillian with the fog in the background, and the b&w one with Avenue Marlowe really rock. Yeah!
It should be noted that we only litter our halls with the finest of broken *wooden* hockey sticks, and *empty* maple syrup bottles, and only until some enterprising Canuck with a roll of duct tape fixes up enough sticks to get a game going in the parking lot (or lobby, if suitably unattended by the forces of security). The bottles, well, they're not much good once they're empty beyond marking goal posts!
You two look like Hugo-Freaking-Royalty, and like you had altogether too much fun!
I can barely fathom that I first started getting those together for you *10 days ago*...
These are seriously fantastic photos ~ love the "practice runway" shot (work that wind in your hair!), and I'm impressed at Trillian's ability to summon mist like that ;) The striped jacket looks great on you!
It was great fun doing this for you ~ thanks so much for providing the inspiration :)
