costumemegacon2005.


holy dingo squat.


i’m wearing spurs.








what my hair was doing underneath the whole time. HELMET HAIR.


ears i picked up. i love the pink!


matty and i met lou ferrigno, and matt got an autograph while i snapped a picture. it’s on what they call film cameras… odd.

the costume contest was totally rigged; the judges were trendy assholes with a knowledge of nothing but mainstream shit comics like the teen titans. at least 7 costumes were teen titans. and there were three punishers and two poison ivy’s. but only one tank girl. there was also elastigirl that sewed her own red vinyl outfit. she looked just like her, same hair and face. she should have won. boo.

bought the cute n’ cuddly alien chestburster plush; it’s been on my list for a while. matty bought a wampa figure, a lord of darkness figure, some arsenic lullaby comics (which we got signed with a sketch!), some other crap that i forgot, and pocky.

a guy there was selling fetish and porno magazines. go figure. but i did want the issue with emily marilyn on the cover. boo, didn’t have any money. the guy also offered me sex toys and bondage gear. hmm. i thought i went to that con a few months ago.

lastly, nobody was hellboy. i was really disappointed.

somebody asked me to do a financial breakdown.
