Macho Man Randy Savage was a favorite and the dude had his mannerisms down.
The theme song to Super Mario bros. was going through my head all day.
This was an elegant costume and her makeup was perfect. The hair sold it though.
Back to the Future meets Beetlejuice as Marty McFly was right on time and we didn't even have to say Beetlejuice three times to get him to appear.
It's Grey Becker picking a winner of the t-shirt raffle. He looks so happy doesn't he? Why my face is squished up? I have no idea.
A bit of the old Red, White and Blue. I don't think that's regulation for Captain America but we'll let it slide. This time.
Her colored contacts were creepy but then again not many dudes were looking at her eyes.
Yes I know it's not at the con, but I'm proud of my dog Ziggy as he qualified for Westminster.
So thanks for taking a look and please feel free to check out the superhero spoof web-comic strip http://DamnHeroes.com and at the top right there's a box with links to the comics The Ascendant and Horsemen. Also have a look the YA paranormal novel The Cell as a link to that is up there also. It's about a 17 year old comic book artist who loses his way until a call comes from beyond the grave.
And if you happen to be on Facebook, you can "like" the pages for The Cell, The Ascendant and Horsemen.

The hoard of faces smiled, sneered and looked
away with purple eyes and lips dried by passion
They descended bearing gifts, donned in leather and lace
holstered guns gleaming soft lights dangled by their sides
ancient swords slung across backs weary with waiting
but they found the desired cut.
Orcs and Batman fought over the essence
called autographs as
Wolverine, The cast of Bleach, and Lex Luthor
texted to allies where Bruce Campbell and Stan Lee
were spotted roaming though the last bastion called
the V.I.P. lounge
Loki danced with Thor's friends
as the revelry of Asgard fell among mortals
the rainbow bridge Bifrost was
laid flat upon a stretch of New York City
Certainly Spider-Man crawled the walls
waiting in line for the bathroom but
few villains, even Dr. Evil, tried to sabotage
the celebration of individuation.
Hayao Miyazaki would have been proud
that Princess Mononoke protected
this forest of dreams as the play
and themes slipped out from the seams.
It was creation.
It was celebration.
It was pageantry.
It was mystery.
It was joy.
There were giveaways.
There were more.
And we, one and all, all and one
put on faces for the faces that we would meet
and through Artist Alley's transient streets
we gorged upon the delight of others who willingly
sacrificed time for our viewing pleasure.
With all good things, an ending is sure to come
but memories with such insolence will
not fade when burned so brightly
from the flash and awe of those
who risk to become gods
even if for only a day.
