Willy Wonka. Candy maker, inventor, businessman, masochist? Given the track record of his guests, you can make a pretty good argument that he is! Still, character flaws aside, I will always love this tale. From the book to both films, it's always made me happy! A couple years ago, The Daily Doodle did a whole week devoted to the book, so it didn't take much prodding to get me on board. Just hope y'all find the art to be very "Sweet" this month!
And now, it's time to take a look at this year's Comic Con! Like I said earlier, it was an insane week! Between the nonstop walking and the 90 degree weather, I may've sweated off ten pounds that week! Still, I had an amazing time and saw a lot of great Cosplay! So sit back and enjoy the show...
Sexy Dark Helmet. Was bound to happen someday!
Sofia the First cosplay, which may very well be a first for Comic Con!
Zootopia! That little bunny girl was so adorable!
Tyrone Biggums! Best cosplay of the Con! Felt so bad for this dude though. It was SOOOOO friggin' hot in San Diego that week!
Mama Fratelli and Sloth! Nice to see these too finally bonding!
Some pretty cool freebies at the Con this year! Entertainment Weekly hosted Con X daily for free! It was a bit of a walk, but well worth it! They gave away some great swag and it wasn't packed at all! At least when we went it wasn't. As we left, the crowds started showing up in mass!
That sort of thing is his bag, baby!
Honey, I cosplayed at Comic Con!
Jareth brought a little "Dance Magic" to the Con! Oddly enough, he was one of only three Goblin Kings that I saw. I figured there'd be a lot of Bowie cosplay this year.
Ash's Fun House from the Ash vs. the Evil Dead series. This was done at the Petco Park Interactive Zone which, admittedly, was a bit of a letdown this year. Still, the Evil Dead experience was fun and scared the hell out of a few people!
"Matt" wasn't fooling anyone at this year's Con!
"TELL 'EM 'LARGE' MARGE SENT YA!!! MWA HA HA HA!!!'
Some MST3K diehards made it out of Deep 13 for a day of fun in the Gaslamp Quarter!
Quite a bit of Big Trouble in Little China cosplay this year. Given it's the film's 30th anniversary, shouldn't be too surprising. And you can't see it, but there's a mulletted baby in that big rig stroller!
Mr. B Natural made it to the MST3K autograph signing! Was awesome meeting Joel again and the new cast! Can't wait to see what movies get the ax this time!
HEIFER!!! That costume was a hoot!
Lando still plugs Colt!
Ghost with the most babe! And the Receptionist has joined in on the fun!
McThor! Now all he needs is a Grimace Hulk, an Iron Mac and a Captain Ameri-Jack!
Very cute cosplay family here. What a nice way to bond.
And so ends the Comic Con experience for another year. Didn't get to see many panels this year and dealt with some pretty gnarly blisters on my feet the whole time, but I made it through. What can I say I'm a trooper! I'll just have to work harder to make next year's show even better!
Anyway, that's all for this week. I hope y'all liked the Comic Con pics. Things get back to normal next week as Roald Dahl month continues with some "Heavy" laughs! Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
