Hey, I went to Comic-Con and partied so hard I shit my pants and passed out in some bushes. But before all that happened...this did!
I usually wear a casual superhero outfit consisting of two bright colors. This year I went with blue and orange, which really went well together. One of my better color choices.
The glasses were really bonkers and made everything look like armageddon.
As you probably know Comic-Con has lots of great cosplay! I'll always stop a take a pic of a great Jason Vorhees. The burlap coat really sells it.
While it's getting harder to find cool booths each year, due to the invasion of Hollywood studios, you can still see cool stuff if you search. Stuff like amazingly lifelike Farah Fawcett doll. I'd say they nailed it.
I really wanted to set this Jim Varney doll free. So bad.
Look at this Human Torch doll! It looks like he's wearing pajamas!
Amazing Fury Road family! I wish I got a better pic, but there was a post apocalyptic sun blinding me!
This pretty much sums up Comic-Con in one picture.
Best Admiral Akbar I've ever seen! Something about that giant oversized head makes it magical.
Great Fei Long! I've seen Fei Longs before, but not with the wig and eyebrows.
I normally don't take pics of Chewbacca's because I've seen a zillion, but this guy is so tall!
I guess The Man From U.N.C.L.E. need some bread. $1 signed pin ups from a comic book ad!
This was my con buddy! It's Witch Hagar from Voltron. For scale, she was about as big as a pickle. And just as cute.
I guess I got pretty drunk, because I found all those photos of me taking pictures through my glasses. I don't think I quite made an art.
And then I took this ridiculous selfie.
And I walked back to the hotel along the promenade. Apparently at night, it's the hot spot because everyone's waiting all night to get into whatever panel they're trying to get into. It's amazing how long people wait for a panel. I tried to take photos, but I think I was too drunk, because they're all blurry. This is the best one.
And that was Day 1!
Decent Leatherface, made much better by the sheer amount of blood.
These girly Chewbaccas got a lot of coverage at the con. I had my crazy glasses on and had no idea it actually a different color. I just thought it was a girl Chewbacca.
Apparently, I am a sucker for Fury Road cosplay.
This guy was hilarious. He's tell people they could touch his cat, then scare them with it! His hand is in the head like a puppet. Genius.
There was a lot of eye-catching art on the floor.
I love this kid. He not only wore wings, but ones that extended like six feet. With all the crowds, it took us quite a while to set this shot up.
A.I.M. Cosplay! Advanced Ideas Mechanics. The classic joke is, their advanced idea is wearing wastepaper baskets on their heads. Still, looks great!
This was a wacky robot they use on the space station. I love the fact that they gave him guns. He's pretty buff!
I did not know Mr. T had "super teeny bouncers," I assumed they were huge.
I feel like I've seen this ratty Gizmo at cons before. Maybe they all look this ratty over time, but the expression on his face is priceless.
Without a doubt, my favorite pic from the entire con! The Phantom! (from the mindmelting rock-n-roll horror fantasy, Phantom of the Paradise)
Hercules! Not a common cosplay choice, but man did he nail it!
Great Dr. Strange. He even got the pattern on his gloves right.
Usually my con buddies are big enough to pose with beers, but this year I got an extra small one!
Excellent old school Sandman cosplay! This is literally the first time I've ever seen this cosplayed. The guy was super friendly too!
Tried to take a cool picture flying with a fan blowing the cape. Didn't come out that cool.
Tried to take a cool picture of my friends and I in the reflection of this giant silver ball. Didn't come out that cool.
The door opened, and suddenly Mike Tyson was standing right there! I asked him if I could take a selfie with him, and he did this! Then I told him I thought it was amazing that he was able to turn his life around and reinvent himself and I thought it was beautiful. And he said "Thanks" then left!
Second blurry pic.
I get the feeling the rest of my life is all downhill from here. Part 2 will come next week!
