Yerp! Finally gettting around to blarging about my Comic-Corn experience this year. It was...well...like every fucking year! Comic-Corn is exactly the same every year. Get drunk, buy old shitty comics, get drunker...take pictures of cosplayers...get drunk...
Here's what happened!
This is a gay alcoholic Mister Mxyzptlk. He was oogling some super buff guy working a booth and asking if he could take pictures of his muscles. The guy was not in costume. He was just starring at his muscles talking asking him "How much he works out?" I gotta say if Mister Mxyzplik was real, he'd probably be a lot like this guy.
This is what nerds beat off too. She has really pointy shoes! Not that she can see them.
The original Gonzo puppet used in Muppets Take Manhattan! Look at that nasty nose!
Hey, it's me! And Godziller! Every year, I pick two colors and build a super hero costume around it. This year it was pink and green. A great color combo, btw.
I don't know what the fuck is going on here, but it looks nuts. Kinda sexy gross.
The next day, I did some promotion for my smash hit Internets show, Dicko's Evil Movie Reviews! On the show, I play Larry Dicko, an evil movie reviewer! Anyway, it was really fun passing out flyers. While passing them out, I'd say "Evil? Evil? Do you like Evil? Like Evil, or Evil things? Evil?" to get people's attention. And you'd be amazed how many old ladies went "Evil? I love evil!" And took a flyer. No joke.
I randomly ended up right next to one of those super jesus guys with the yellow signs about going to hell. Weirdly, enough we became friends. He was totally chill. We even took a selfie together!
And what's even stranger, both our cards we were using to promote our interests looked totally similar. Like we designed them to go together or something. How crazy is that?
After that, it was booze time where I bumped into this excellent cosplayer. The costume was the circus half-man, half-lady, but with a refined style. Strangely enough, I would see this same guy over and over at the con! It was like fate.
A really good Xena! I'm not even a fan of this show, but I gotta give the lady credit--this is great cosplay.
And then a random group of Michael Meyers stolled by! They were all in character, too. I tried to talk to one, and he looked at me like he was going to murder me.
Then Reggie Bannister from Phantasm strolled by! He's such a nice guy! He even stopped for a selife with me!
Second day of the con, Spider-Man's already passed out under the bar.
While I don't think this is the greatest cosplay, this guy was great. He gave me quite an earful about how Calendar Man is not only the best Batman villain, but one of the best villains of all time.
A herd of fattymobiles.
These guys are sweet! I love impossible team-ups, and Conan and old Flash are as impossible as it gets.
These guys also looked great!
They were right next to these cylons! I'm sure my 8 year old self would shit his pants seeing the potential battle here.
Met an epic Storm! It was a guy, too! Now that's some mutant cosplay abilities! (he was with his mom!)
I have no idear who this guy is. I asked him, I don't think he really had a plan either. Just a mask!
I also bought a great con-buddy this year! Ladies and Gentlemen, his highness...the King of Beer! (and Cartoons!)
A really good Sailor! I think Polly's the wrong color, but other than that, top notch.
This is a really good picture I took walking across a bridge. Pretty sure the bridge was built with picture taking opportunities in mind, but the sun and trains were just right.
Then my good friend Robert, who is half Klingon, took me to the Klingon lifestyle panel!
It was totally fucking ridiculous. But a lot of fun. And charming, because it's one of the last holdouts for actual non-hollywood/hipster nerd love. They were honest to gosh nerds just nerding the fuck out. It was very refreshing.
The did a skit, with some incredible acting, and then a costume contest!
Imagine these two guys showing at your door to take your daughter on a date!
Or these two guys!
If I remember correctly, I drank a long island ice tea and hit the dance floor.......solo!
Then posed with a pinball machine...
Then posed with this guy! I think he was an actor or some kind of guy promoting something. Not sure.
And then I went home and ate a Subway sandwich alone in my hotel room bathroom.
And that's half of Comic-Con! The rest will come soon!
