In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects — all are fair game.
If I were the patron saint of anything in the world, I would choose to be the saint of comic book conventions. I think it is in the realm of possibility. Just the fact that I use the word “realm” so nonchalantly should attest to the fact that I am extremely interested in comic books and everything related to comic books. Whenever I go to a convention, I feel like I am with my people. My people dress up as characters from comics, movies and television shows. I think the correct term is cosplay, which is short for costume play. It sounds like heaven, doesn’t it? Well, maybe that’s just my idea of heaven.
So here is an idea, I could dress up like Lois Lane for this year’s comic book convention. I have my own press pass now. There are also Lois Lane press passes on Etsy. Another idea is to dress up like a different character – Wonder Woman, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Black Widow . . . There are so many choices. She-Hulk would be fun and challenging. The body paint would have to be really excellent. The white tank and leather pants are simple enough. I have until October to decide.
