I, proud member of the Geek Forces, have never been to a ComiCon before.
I know, I know, that’s crazy talk, but it’s just one of those things I never got around to doing.
Since moving to the DC area in 2004, I’d had my eyes on the Baltimore ComiCon, but something always thwarted my plans.
Pulling. It. Off.
My wife, Melony, went as Supergirl and Anastasia donned the colors of Themiscrya as Wonder Woman.
Nakeia, my sista from another mista, put together an awesome Misty Knight ensemble and together, the four of us ventured forth through the Convention Center.
Like this, only with less singing and swordfighting.
|Yeah, like Goofy’s never wanted to take a bazooka to It’s a Small World…|
|Misty was NOT having any of that fool talk.|
The number of artists and writers on hand was astounding and I totally geeked out over a few of them including Chris Roberson of iZombie fame who responded to my comment of, “Thank you for saving Grounded in Superman,” with a chuckle, a wink, and a simple, “I did the best I could with what I had.”
Luckily, I caught her mid-spin as she changed from crazy toddler to crazy toddler in a costume.
So next year I’m going both days—one day to stand in lines and play the dutiful geek, and the other to spend and share with family and friends, a fly on the wall watching the fun and taking it all in and proving what I already know to be true, that there is no other hobby I’d rather be involved with or bring my little girl into.
|In the meantime, Nakeia and I decided to dress like this at the Pentagon more often…|
