2004 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient
Ricky Dick started costuming at an early age. He first learned to sew and do beadwork through Boy Scouts and attending Native American Pow-Wows. He started attending S/F conventions in 1979 and quickly took to the masquerade competitions. In 1985 he founded what would one day be the third ICG chapter: The Sick Pups of Greater Monmouth County (aka the NJ/NY chapter). His makeup skills were his first attention-getter in costuming, followed by obsessive attention to detail, interesting presentations, and a very odd sense of humor.
