If I were single, I would take advantage of all of the Cosplay workshops so that I could prepare for the Sci-fi speed dating session and photo ops. Kate Beckinsdale would be my #1 choice for photo ops this year. John Barrowman is a close second.
First, I would attend the workshop with cosplayer Britt Bliss called “How to Draft and Underbust Corset.” It’s for anyone interested in learning how to make their own corset. Anything that will help make you look good in your photo op with Kate Beckinsdale is worth your time.
Then it’s time to decide between going to the “Working with Worbla” Coplay workshop with Mogchelle for making your own armor. I’m not even sure what worbla is so maybe I’ll check out the speed dating session. (FYI: After googling, I discovered that worbla is not a sci-fi character.)
There are speed dating sessions for the LGBTPQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Pansexual and Queer/Questioning) community. I don’t fit into that category but I might stick around to make some new friends. Another speeding dating session will be held later in the day.
What do you do if you love cosplay but you’re broke? Attend the Cosplay on a budget workshop with Knightmage. He has some amazing costumes. His Spawn costume is beyond gorgeous. It’s ridiculous how much it blows my mind. Check out some of his pictures here:
If you’re a geek girl, like me, then you might enjoy the Geek Girl Brunch. There are probably refreshments and maybe you can make some friends that like the same geeky stuff that you do. Besides, you will need to build your strength for the . . . . Q & A session with Kate Beckinsdale.
Tell us if you’re going to dress up tonight for Halloween. (And better yet, show us a picture of your costume!)
This is the costume that I made for Little Sister #2. She is very excited to be dressing up like Wonder Woman. She said I should be Wonder Woman’s mom for Halloween. So that is the plan for Comic Con tomorrow – she’ll be Wonder Woman and I will be Wonder Woman’s mom.
Excuse me while I go find some clothes worthy of a superhero’s mother.
So I’ve been doing some comic book homework over the weekend. I’ve learned a few things that I didn’t know that I probably should have known.
Here is are two things that I have discovered:
1. Deadpool. How could I have not known who Deadpool is? Seriously, I’ve seen the “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” about ten times this week and about twenty times before that. My daughter’s boyfriend has brought up the name several times so I figured I had better find out. I needed to understand his Halloween costume since he was going as Deadpool. Now I know who Deadpool is. His alias is Wade Wilson.
2. Deathstroke. I’ve finally been able to watch “Arrow.” Manu Bennett is in the show so I wanted to know about his character. He plays Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke. I’m still watching the show – not because I have to but because I want to. I’ve already Googled and read almost everything I can about Deathstroke. The show is really pretty good so I’ll keep watching.
Now I will have something to talk to Manu Bennett about at Comic Con.
So I’ve been laying around being sick today. I haven’t had the energy to do much, except watch Hugh Jackman movies . . . yes, still watching Hugh Jackman. Yes, I know it’s been at least twelve hours.
But I digress. The other thing that I have been doing is reading comic books. I just read “Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman.” We can talk more about it later. It did get me to thinking about how close Ohio Comic Con is. It’s only a week away.
So while I have some time, I’m planning my day. Wizard World has a map of guests and exhibitors. My friend of a friend Tracey will be there. She’s friends with Norman Reedus.
I envy her above all others.
She has a cool website with lots of cool stuff. So I’m hoping to get to meet her in person this year. Maybe we’ll do a selfie. http://www.traceygurney.com/
Renee Witterstaetter is going to be there. So why is that cool? Renee Witterstaetter is a comic book publisher and artist, who is behind the reintroduction of “She-Hulk.” As you may know, I love “She-Hulk.” If I dress as She-Hulk, then maybe we can take a selfie.
You can see some of her art work and other things that she does at . . .
The last time I went to a comic book convention was in 1999 when it was still Mid-Ohio Con. Or it might have been 1998. I do remember that the special guest was Jeff Conway.
I have wanted to go back but my middle daughter has a birthday on the same weekend. This year Ohio Comic Con was on a different weekend. Some of the special guests were members of the cast of “The Walking Dead.”
I was very excited to be there. Lucas was not as thrilled. He was a trooper. Not a stormtrooper like the one I had my picture taken with. But a trooper none-the-less. Next time, I’m hoping to find Darth Vader.
