    Anybody on the forum who may have info on the 1984 Worldcon masquerade ? I discovered somebody did Metropolis themed costumes and I'm interested in finding out what it was like. Philip Mercier was involved apparently. Thanks for the help .

    I was just wondering what it looked like. Was it just a regular costume or a full blown suit ? Any pics ?

    Somehow I had a feeling I would find somebody who knew somebody etc ...

    You gotta love the internet .

    This is probably not what you're looking for but Richie from RICHIESARMOR did a fantastic False Maria mask. It is truly an awesome piece. You may want to contact him for more info.
