the con

okay...

so i got hit pretty hard the other day with the obligatory post-convention cold (known in some circles as the "con crud') and have been fighting it back with nyquil and oj and plenty of those amazing fisherman's friend cough drops and am finally back in service. not 100% just yet, but better than 60...

so the show was awesome and i got to hang with many wonderful people...and i forgot my camera. craig let me use his camera to take pictures of a costume or two--i'll post them when he sends them over--but the photos that follow are courtesy of the lovely suzanne wieringo and others. thanks, squeeze!



i put them in chronological, so this comes first as craig and i were once again visited by our pal caleb, impulse fan extraordinaire, this year decked out as the scarlet speedster's golden apprentice--kid flash! it was so great to see caleb again--and his mom and dad, mindy and john--as we loved his impulse gear so much last year that we were sure he was an over-sized shoe-in in the costume contest! alas, it wasn't to be--but caleb is always our first pick if we were running the show! excellent costume, buddy! see ya next year!







here's caleb at home, putting on some speed!







long story how we ended up here, but here are craig, kelly yates, rod hannah, and me at the hardrock cafe, inner harbor, baltimore. rod was our hero that night and we all ended up having a good time!







sunday morning at the broadway diner.
we have these things at conventions called the brotherhood of mike breakfasts where people who were friends with mike get together usually sunday morning and have breakfast together to relax a little and remember mike. there are a lot of brothers in the brotherhood and not everyone can make it every time, but we try. this year jamar nicholas suggested we trek on down to the broadway diner in baltimore (he saw it on the food network's diners, dives, and drive-ins) and so we did. glad we did! great food and lots of laughs--mostly from jamar who is hil. ari. ous.
this is jamar's friend, stu, jamar, me, craig, suzanne.







jamar showing us his speed racer pose.
suzanne has been replaced by matt.







sunday evening, after the show was over.
i split the show about a half an hour early to go have dinner with my two friends from high school, sarah and maryanne. when i got back to the hotel, i was invited by marc nathan--the man who runs and organizes the baltimore comiccon--and brad tree--the guy who coordinates that big octopus of a show--to go out with them and the few remaining guests for some late night cocktails and snacks. i was fortunate to cab over to the place with (comics royalty) walter and louise simonson! on the way in we took some pictures which weezie was kind enough to send over. (i just wish i had been awake enough to ask walter to take one of me and his lovely wife...)














and here's the only costumes i have for y'all right now.
ms. marvel (who turned many a head) deadpool and...are they calling her lady deadpool? i dunno. cool costumes though!





that's it!
have a great weekend!
smell ya later!

That Ms. Marvel was dropping jaws all over the convention center. I offered to help her pick them up but she started yelling for security.

Wow glad to hear you all had such a great time at the con! Sounds like a blast and i totally wish I could have been there. I've already started my arrangements come hell or high water to be there next year dammit!!

Adam Hutch said...

It was a fun con. Glad you're over your ick. I'm jealous of your cab-sharing with the Simonsons. So much talent in that family.

Brian said...

Thanks Todd.

I always enjoy your con reports.

And you guys are right about Ms. Marvel. She would have turned heads even at Dragon Con.
