The cutest Browncoats on the internets!

Fans of Joss Whedon’s short-lived show Firefly are rabid. 10 years later we still adore the show and still mourn its short run of only one year. For the kids now it’s like Star Trek was when I was a kid. Only reruns, no new shows. My niece & nephew, B & M, are some of those young fans.

Now, it’s a well established fact that both my nieces and my three nephews are ALL exceptionally good looking and smart. But these two? They became the darlings of the Firefly fans on the internet this week.

Just over a year ago for CONvergence 2011 here in Minneapolis M & B told their mom they wanted to wear costumes and they requested Captain Malcolm Reynolds & Kaylwinnet Lee Frye (Mal & Kaylee) from Firefly. My sis, Sandy, made the costumes for them and they were amazing!

One of the official CVG photographers, Peter Verrant, snapped this picture of them in their costumes.

For some reason, a year later, this photo started making the rounds on the internet. My little darlings have been seen on Reddit, The Daily What Geek, Neatorama, and, just yesterday, Think Geek’s Facebook page.

Here are a couple more pictures of my monkeys in their costumes.

He wouldn’t say “I’m a big damn hero” because damn is a bad word.

I know I’m biased, but aren’t they just the cutest things ever?

Following the popularity of Peter’s picture of them I put another one out there online and tweeted it.

Two of the actors in Firefly, Sean Maher & Adam Baldwin, both Tweeted the pictures out on their Twitter accounts. To say my Flickr hits have gone up a little is a bit of an understatement.
