Eastercon 1971

This is a picture of the fancy dress prize winners at British Science Fiction Easteron 22, held in Worcester in April 1971. It was the first and last time I ever took part in the fancy dress competition.Fancy dress  was something which the BFS frowned upon and wouldn't accept at Fantasycon. I sometimes wonder whether this lack of fun for fun's sake was at their own loss. Science Fiction conventions tend to take themselves a little less seriously yet still get the business done.
