Special Exhibits: Pat Rooney's vintage closet

Pat Rooney saved her outfits from the 1960s-early 1970s -- and we are glad she did!




Who can forget the platform shoes?


Sweet Mary Janes in bright orange.

Beaded handbags were trendy.

A fabulous velvet minidress with large white collar. 


I'm betting this poster hung in Pat's room.

The Artists Gallery: Ralph Hodgdon

The Artists Gallery

Sandy threw many people off with the wig! She created a clever paper doll set 
that featured the outfits she wore at the convention. 


Sylvia Kleindinst showcased her original art







Anita Korsonsky, attending her first convention, displayed a paper castle from her collection.


Karen Hunter's amazing artwork -- she captures the stars from some of our favorite TV shows. 
That's Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham from Downton Abbey) top left, and 
 Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York from Bewitched.

Karen also collects Betsy McCall paper dolls and figurines that she shared in Special Exhibits.

Lynne Hills and Sharry O'Hare in hippie finery. 
Many people were inspired to dress up -- perhaps made easier 
by personal memories of the era and memorable costumes once owned.

Julie Cruz-Jones and daughter Gina Lannen. 
It was their first convention and they jumped right into the fun!
