I paid dearly to bring you these photos from this weekend’s Super-Con comic book convention in San Jose, CA, people. Twenty-five bucks in gas money, five hours in a stuffy convention hall with hundreds of sweaty basement-dwellers, and an uncomfortable encounter with a germaphobic B-list celebrity at the sinks in a men’s room.
Not that I’m naming any B-list names or anything. I wouldn’t want to besmirch the reputation of anyone who might have played a young Boba Fett in the Star Wars prequels.
Costume contest Master of Ceremonies Jane Wiedlin of the Go Go’s and her two friends.
I wouldn’t try any web-swinging until the Scarlet Spider spider-senses some Jenny Craig.
Riddle me this… is there some old dude stumbling around without his cane right now so that you could accessorize your costume?
Nothing says “good time” like a cute girl with a name like “Lady Death.” Or “Ball Slicer.”
Rorschach demonstrates how to throw a sloppy punch.
I guess it’s been a while since I picked up an X-Men book. I seem to recall Bishop being black.
I can’t remember what this kid was talking about, but let’s pretend it was how Nicolas Cage couldn’t have sucked any harder as Johnny “Ghost Rider” Blaze.
I just realized that Speed Racer totally dresses like a French dude from the 60s. Now I hate that cartoon even more.
This guy in the awesome Punisher costume gets bonus points for cappin’ a bitch on his way out of the convention center.
I don’t really do manga or whatever, so I’ll have to take a guess at your name. Is it Princess Zoetrope Buttercream?
Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Krystal Hamburgers.
I dub thee: Gozer Laserbeak the Barbarian.
Dude spent a month making this costume by hand. It took me about a month to win Super Mario Brothers. Now who’s the real talent?
“Here, kid, bite down on this, and what I’m about to do won’t hurt a bit.”
