I saw her. I was disturbed a little. It was not a costume for her body type. I came to the conclusion that there's two kinds of cosplay : excellent cosplay and extremely awful cosplay. There's no middle ground.


I saw her too. I mentioned to my wife that I give her kudos for wearing it but it was not the most.....flattering outfit.

There were so many Finn's from Adventure. So so many.

More Finns than a shark convention.

There was a steampunk mermaid that I really liked. It was something imaginative.

There was one girl also dressed as Natasha from the Hawkeye's "girlfriends" issue. Black dress, yellow belt, Ace of Spades on the forehead. She liked that I got the reference.

The one I liked because it made me chuckle was this kid dress as Quailman from Doug.

Not the most recent or well known cartoon but it made me laugh a little.

Did any one get a picture of cosplayer dressed as Amazi Girl/Amber from Shortpacked!? I saw her once when I was sitting with Eric/Doombug, but didn't see her the rest of the Con to get a pic.

I'll be scanning and posting my finds today. It was an amazing time.

I was fried my self at that point. You came out ok in the pictures. Eric has them up on Facebook.

Good Con. I was only going to do Saturday, but I really wanted to go to the how to make your own books panels. Glad I went Sunday too.

A few of observations:

1. Joe Hill is a spitting image of his father.

2. Phil Jimenez is one genuinely nice person. He did sketches for anyone in line for free and not quickies. And he was chatty with everyone. It was fun to listen to him chat with a woman that was interested in watching him draw. They got into a soap opera conversation.

3. I think I may've found the one sketch that anyone can do but additionally will make you think you're crazy for asking for it.

4. If you're a fan of "A Distant Soil" get the new trade that's coming out Wednesday. They digitally remastered it and some of the scenes that came out dark in the original comics are much clearer.

5. One of Waid and Kitson's projects is coming back.
