Want list results

I wanted to update the results of my San Diego Comic Con Costume want list. I got three out of ten. That is not so good, but I am looking for some obscure characters. I think I am going to make a whole different list next time. I wonder if I can pick 10 characters that I can find all of them. It is always a good challenge.

Dr. Venture (Venture Brothers)

Comic Con 09: Dr Venture

Lady Jay (GI Joe)

Comic Con 09: Yo Joe

Wasp (Avengers)

Comic Con 09: Wasp

Comic Con 09: Wasp Wings

Not Seen:
Hyperion (Squadron Supreme)
Martian Manhunter (Justice League)
Rick Deckard (Blade Runner)
Retro Girl (Powers)
Samaritan (Astro City)
Nite Owl I (Watchmen)
Lion-O (Thunder Cats)
Man-At-Arms (He-Man)

Characters I have seen, but need a Solo photo of

Black Adam (Captain Marvel)

Greatest American Hero

Comic Con 2009: Greatest American Hero

The Greatest American Hero is a TV show that I would love to see be remade. I would do it without his high school class being such a big part of the show.

Captain Hammer

Comic Con 2009:

Every Captain Hammer is willing to flex for you. It takes a special Captain Hammer to cower like the end of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog.

Comic Con 2009: Afraid

Comic Con: Finding my photos

Comic Con 09: pedo bear

I wonder how people find my photos some times. Apparently this photo was tweeted all over Brazil I used the google translater to see what they were saying.


This little comment got this photo 1300 views in a day. My total views for the day was over 10,000. This is what happens after comic con. I want to see how many 2000 plus view days in a row I can go. I am currently on 10 days in a row.

Crazy Color batman

Comic Con 2009: Crazy Color Batman

With the current state of the DC Comics multiverse after 52, I have no idea if this version of Batman is something that was created for the comics or if it is something this guy thought up. Let me know if you know.

Back From Comic Con: Not a zombie

Comic Con 2009:

Yeah I felt a little like a zombie my at the end of the San Diego Comic Con international. I am back from Comic Con and I have more than 1000 photos to sort through. It will be a while before I dig myself out of that hole. I hope to post 20 or more photos a day to flickr until I post all of them. I have a Comic Con 2009 set on Flickr already. You also might want to check out my Never Ending Comic Convention pool on Flickr. I hope to have a good number of posts for the future.

This guy told me he was a generic zombie, but he looks more like a zombie hunter.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Steampunk Ghostbuster

Comic Con 2007: Steampunk Ghostbuster

This is my favorite costume in Comic Con history. I think it is cool, well made, well thought out, and a great idea. How are you going to telegraphic? Go Steampunk Ghostbuster.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Wonder Twins

Comic Con 2007: Wonder Twins

Looking at these outfits, it takes a lots of guts to wear them in public. That is all I can say. I guess Gleep is off getting a bucket

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Underworld

Comic Con 2007: Underworld

She said that her cousin got the costume design specs from the movie and this is an exact replica. All she needed to do was wear the outfit.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Chef

Comic Con 2007: Chef

You gotta love this costume. He even did a good Chef voice. You do not see very many South Park costumes at comic con.

Friday, July 17, 2009

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Nurse Joy

Comic Con 2006: Nurse Joy

I am not going to say that I do not get Pokemon, but I don't. I am just not sure why they have a sexy nurse on a kids show. On top of that Brock is always lusting after Nurse Joy. It just does not make sense to me.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Joker

Comic Con 2006: Joker

There are a lot of Jokers at Comic Con. He might be the most popular villain. You do not see many who are made up like the TV show Joker. I think that is one of the good points of this costume.

Dr. Horrible Emmy

Comic Con 2008: Dr. Horrible

Big ups to Joss Whedon and Dr. Horrible for getting an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Special Class - Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs. This is not really a surprise to me. Over the last couple of years the Emmys have been trying to recognize technology. I will be really impressed when they have web only categories.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Black Superman

Comic Con 2006: Black Superman

Superman is not an easy character to pull off at comic con. This costumer is not easy to pull off either. He does a pretty good job at it.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Blue and Gold

Comic Con 2006: Blue and Gold

I love both Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. They were two of my favorite DC Comics characters from the 80's and 90's. I still do not think I could convince my wife to dress like Blue Beetle. That is what she told me when I talked to them about the costumes.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Bat-Mandalorian

Comic Con 2007: Bat -Mandalorian

I love this costume. It is a great crossover a characters. I really don't see Batman and Boba Fett having the same alignment. I think that Bruce Wayne would be fighting for the rebellion. I still think this is pretty cool.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Bat Dance

Comic Con 2007: Bat-dance

I love the TV show Batman. I love that he is doing the Bat dance. I had the Bat dance album when I was growing up. I wonder where that LP is now.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Slave Leia 2007

Comic Con 2007: Slave Leia

What else can you say about Metal Bikini Slave Leia? This photo is my most interesting, Most Favorites (52), Viewed 17,128 times on flickr. It is pretty clear why this is a photo people like.

Twelve Comic Con Costumes to Remember: Mystique

Comic Con 2006: Mystique

This is a very good Mystique costume. She was one of my favorite x-men villains. I did not like here any where as much as a hero.

Thursday, July 9, 2009

Kitty Pryde

Comic Con 2008: Kitty Pride

I think that Kitty Pride is a very hard costume because there is no single costume that screams Kitty Pride. She has had so many costumes it is hard to pick one. I think that this is a pretty good choice.

Wednesday, July 8, 2009


Comic Con 2008: Orion

I love that this guy is dressed like Orion. Orion is a fourth level character. He should be a better character, but I cannot think of anyone who ever writes him well. I cannot think of a great Orion story. He is just a footnote to something Jack Kirby did not pull off well.

Comic Con 2008: Skeletor

How long will it be before we see a He-Man movie reboot. The first He-Man movie was one of the worst action movies of the 80s. I am not sure He-Man would work it if got the Dark Knight treatment. It looks like someone is working on Greyskull for 2001. It is a better idea that the View Master movie.

Trogdor the Burninator

Comic Con 2008: Trogdor the Burninator

I love this costume. It is smart and funny. Yes Trogdor the Burninator is one of my favorites.

My Costume want list

Comic Con 2008: I'm Batman

I was thinking about some of my past comic convention costume want to photographic lists. After Wonder Con 2009, After Comic Con 2007. I wanted to revisit these lists and make one for Comic Con 2009.

This makes me think of the list of characters I would like this year to see and take photos of:

Hyperion (Squadron Supreme)
Wasp (Avengers)
Martian Manhunter (Justice League)
Rick Deckard (Blade Runner)
Retro Girl (Powers)
Samaritan (Astro City)
Lady Jay (GI Joe)
Nite Owl I (Watchmen)
Lion-O (Thunder Cats)
Man-At-Arms (He-Man)
Dr. Venture (Venture Brothers)

Characters I have seen, but need a Solo photo of

Black Adam (Captain Marvel)

I want to seek if I can keep this list consistent and just ad one character after each convention. I know there are always more characters to take photos of.

Comic Con is coming

Comic Con 2007: Rocket Man

Comic Con is coming! We are less that 20 days from The San Diego International Comic Con. It was the first, is the biggest, and still the best. I will be going there to see friends, watch people talk, see previews, and most of all, Take pictures of people in costumes. It is one of my favorite things to do. It is the prime mover for my Flickr Account. I keep on wanting flickr to have a party at Comic Con, but I can never get anywhere with that idea.

Leave a comment if you are also going to be there.

Costume Hero

Outside Fanimecon 2008: Guitar Hero

What I love about this costume is that without the Guitar Hero Guitar you would not know she was wearing a costume. This is not quite a slack costume.

Cave Girl

Wonder Con 2007: Cave Girl

I do not know if she is a specific cave girl or just a generic cave girl
