Comic-Con Report, volume 4
I guess asking oneself, "If I were Waldo, where would I be?" isn't such a bad strategy.
Somehow these costumes were okay but Adrianne Curry was ejected from the Con for her Æon Flux costume. How much butt is a dangerous amount of butt? I do remember some divine wardrobe malfunctions at Cons of yesteryear, which is probably why enforcement's so strict now.
I suppose Comic-Con's fairly arbitrary costume rules are reflective of geek sexuality in general. I was amused when some middle aged ladies were highly insulted after I gave them cards for Amee's "Passion Parties", apparently something like sexually themed tupperware parties. We figured out then that it was probably best I not hand out cards for her.
I yelled, "Panty! Stocking!" to get the attention of this lovely pair;
Minutes later, I ran into another Panty and Stocking;
I bitterly regretted not asking Panty if she was not wearing panties since she was holding her gun--Panty's panties magically transform into her weapon while Stocking's stocking becomes a sword, and you can see she's only wearing one stocking.
I don't know who this is, but she's sexy;
Though her top makes her boobs look sort of upside down.
By the way, here's a little safety tip--this is not sexy;
It is in fact scary. In a bad way. Please ladies, there's not been a remotely sensible reason to do this to yourselves in at least a hundred years.
These two I would've liked to have watched make out;
When the Ariel was taking a photo with another girl later, the girl touched one of Ariel's seashells and said, "Ooh! That's hard!"
"That's what she said," said Ariel. I kind of like this one's bikini better, though;
Looks like it came from the same shop, but has the added bonus of looking like it's about to fall off.
There was also a sexy Tinkerbell;
And these girls were cute--I love Belle's handbag;
But these are the two I'd marry;
There was a big steampunk presence as steampunk's progress into mainstream media has gained, er, steam.
Remember the girl from last year who made a dress out of Con bags?
Well, I ran into her again this year with this year's bag turned into a new dress;
Finally, here is a very good pair of Ghostbusters;
Okay. I think that does it for Con reports. Now I just have to somehow deal with the Conless days preceding the next one.
