Westercon 36 “The Unknown Masquerade”

Westercon 36 “The Unknown Masquerade”

I was contacted by Rae L. in his search for images about the recent history of costume. He and some friends are interested in June Moffatt’s “photos of an Unknown Masquerade”. I had never heard of them, but when I went digging into the archives of files former website masters Lee & Barry Gold had bequeathed to me, I stumbled upon them.

Out of the 33 photos there, 27 were chosen for this album.

If you can help us identify any of the unlabelled images, or spot any inaccuracies, please contact me here. Thanks to Rae for bringing their existence to my attention and to the members of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society Facebook group for their help in identifying the few we could track down.

UPDATE: thanks to Bruce Mai for letting us know post-publication these were from Westercon 36, 1983. Several of them can be found on the On the ICG Pat and Peggy Kennedy Memorial Archives here.
