Over 20 Playboy Playmates, past and present, participated in the 51st Glamourcon at Crowne Plaza O'Hare recently. Playful Playmate of the Year 2011, Claire Sinclair, was a standout with the fans as she posed for photos and signed autographs. She gave dealer John O'Neill a thrill donning a cheese hat and bra in honor of his native Wisconsin! Other Playmates in attendance included Chicago native Crystal McCahill (5/09), her mom Gale Olson (8/68), Liz Glazowski (4/80), Charlotte Kemp (12/82), Kerri Kendall (9/90), Carol Imhof (12/70), Cathy St. George (8/82), Lee Ann Michelle (2/79), Henriette Allais (3/80), Lorraine Michaels (4/81) and Lisa Sohm (4/77) among many others.
It was great seeing fans/friends like Larry Armstrong, Tom Shimada (who had discovered another cover I didn't know I had!), photographer Tom Testolin, Seth Grenald, Randy and Will Ellison, Jeff Evans, Wil Rivers, photog James Benasiak, John Newman, Thomas Helmke, Bob Wells, Bloke Maurer and artists Alex Lord and Steve Baier among others.
It was also fun seeing my fellow Playmates and I hope to meet up with them again for the next Glamourcon in Long Beach, California, on November 5th and 6th. I am hoping to plan a California reunion with Patti Connors, Janis Schmitt and Debra Jensen McMurray.
Who knows....maybe we can take a casserole over to Hef .....:-)
Thanks and congrats to Glamourcon founder Bob Schultz for another wonderful event! (www.Glamourcon.com)
