Welcome to October CRAZIES!!!  After a week delay, we finally got our review of Long Beach Comic Con 2017 up!  And really, what better way to kick off Halloween month than with a bunch of people in costumes, am I right?  It was a weekend of fun, wonder and some awesome action figure scores, so enough clowning around!  Let's hit the road and go back to Long Beach!  Enjoy...

Sexy Dumb And Dumber cosplay.  Some things just aren't meant to be sexy!

Hey Arnold! cosplay!  "Helga" had the perfect unibrow going there!

Cholo Peanuts!  This is a variant I can get behind!

Some great The Mask cosplay happening here!

My favorite cosplay of the con!  Hard to tell in the pic, but his vest and "Lightning" lit up!

Couldn't get to close to this dude.  He nearly put an eye out!

Spy vs. Spy, friendship is mayhem!

And the most creative use of a "Hoverboard" award goes to Aladdin!

One of the cooler things LBCC has is the laser tag arena they put up in the exhibit hall every year.  They also had a gaming arena set up on giant screens where people took part in Mario Kart and Smash Bros tournaments the whole weekend!

She put a spell on Billy!

Slapshot cosplay!  It's about friggin time!

She's Mary Poppins y'all!

"Peace among worlds!"

The Justice League was there and ready to take on their worst foes yet: Film Critics!

Sorry dude.  The Festival Of Fools is in Washington, DC right now!

His spidey sense was tingling at the thought of a non-MCU Venom movie!

I've seen plenty of Mad Eye Moody cosplay since the Goblet of Fire came out, but this is easily the best one!

 Little Flash, meet R2!

One step ahead of the Sith...

The new It hadn't come out yet, but I'm almost certain Pennywise cosplay will be dominating all the cons next year!

And that was Long Beach Comic Con 2017.  Despite the circumstances leading into the weekend, I still had a good time.  It was somewhat of a down year for LBCC.  Attendance-wise, it was probably the most people I've ever seen there.  Doing it during Labor Day weekend helped as they didn't have to compete with the NFL on Sunday this time.  However, they also did it during the same weekend as DragonCon in Atlanta and Fan Expo in Toronto, so many of the big name vendors that usually go to LBCC weren't there.  At least 13 regulars that I see there every year didn't come.  Hopefully next year they'll be back.  I did get some awesome action figure and trading card scores at least!  I'm always on the look out for obscure treasures, and one booth had them in spades!  Overall, I needed a weekend away and it helped out a lot.  It was a good time and I look forward to being back next year!

That's all for today my CRAZIES.  We'll be back next week with some art celebrating the very personification of Halloween!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
