Picture this small child going to my first Comicon in Pittsburgh right? I went as Poison Ivy (our group was supposed to have a batman theme but everyone else bailed cause they were lame) and I made my costume. My friend and I got glued leaves onto my outfit for hours it was great. So the day came and we got to the convention center and are wondering around when this guy comes up and stops me and says in the most gentle way “oh my goodness I just had to stop you you look beautiful. Just lovely” and walked away. Now there wasn’t anything creepy or weird about what happened, I was shocked and honored. It all happened so fast I couldn’t comprehend who he was. I later realized it was national treasure Paul McGann, the 8th doctor. I worked up all my courage and went over to his booth. He looked up, smiled, and said “oh it’s you! The most beautiful girl in the room”. I couldn’t believe he remembered me. I took a picture with him near the TARDIS and I was so nervous. He could tell- he was sweet and friendly and said “I hope you’re going to put your shopping down”. He hugged me tight and kissed my forehead before sending me along. He was the sweetest man I’ve ever met and gave me so much confidence that day. I still have my picture with him hanging in my room. Thank you, Sir. Maybe I’ll meet you again someday.
Oh my gooses, what a good weekend. I went to Pittsburgh Comicon and had such an amazing time. I met Holly Conrad who is my cosplay inspiration. She’s super awesome in real life too. I won a cosplay prize at the after party and I competed in a real for real costume contest and got 3rd for Squirrel Girl! I was stoked bc for as much as I love Squirrel Girl, she’s not flashy (other than dat tail!). But it’s a quiet costume, no big fabrication or armor. And it still got 3rd! Yay! Super exciting. I never participated in a costume contest before so I’m pretty happy with myself. Mostly bc I got through it and didn’t die.
Saw this parked in the motel parking lot this morning before heading to the con. Would anyone happen to know whose car this is? They definitely put a lot of time and money into it and I would really like to credit them.
Cosplay music video from Pittsburgh ComiCon 2013. My own cosplay is the second to last individual shot (just before my fantastic friend cosplaying FemScout - TF2!). I’m Harley Quinn. Another good friend of mine can be found towards the beginning of the video, cosplaying KRIIIEEEEEG from Borderlands 2, and doing it amazingly. :D
Got this at Pittsburgh Comicon.
By Scott Zambelli.
He is quite possibly the best artist I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. He was so sweet (not to mention easy on the eyes) and allowed me to choose two works for free! Who does that? Amazing people still exist.
Aye yo Pittsburgh Comicon was fab I went as Dean and this bitch was Sammy. Someother people were there as well. I’m sorry if I missed anyone feel free to tell me if I did. I had so much fun, it was the best con I’ve been to.
Next weekend at Pittsburgh Comicon (Sep. 26-28, 2014) I will be selling my new Kyle Rayner Green Lantern customizable cel. Each cel will be printed to acetate and hand-painted, allowing you to choose your own background. I typically only carry holographic foil sheets, but you can easily switch it out for your own later.
$20 for the cel + background
I’m going to try to come up with a Wonder Woman cel, too, so look forward to it! Hope to see you next weekend!
