The epic chronicle of America's most fun convention/people-watching Mecca continues!
Smokin' and suckin' down a brewski with Buddy Christ.
Am I fucked in the head for imagining all manner of fun that could be had with Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite, and a couple of tumblers of good Scotch?
Exactly what the hell are those tentacle thingies on this race of STAR WARS aliens? A prehensile scalp?
About fifteen seconds after I took this shot, both of these guys were anally violated and then torn in half by a white gorilla with a horn protruding from its forehead. Oh, well. That's what you get for donning a TOS red shirt...
The Question and Batwoman, DC's top lesbian crimefighters.
Eat your hearts out, Disney Princesses. Fiona's in da house!
A jaw-droppingly toothsome Power Girl poses with an Amanda Conner print of herself.
Two outstanding 1950's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS pod people, easily my favorite costumes at the show. Totally original.
If anything good came out of the popularity of the recent STAR TREK reboot movie, it's the return of folks representing for The Original Series. (Although I can do without the new P.C. version of those porno-fantasy Orion green chicks.)
"Dolly Death Star," one of the con's most original and show-stopping costumes.
Rogue, thankfully not rocking that stupid bomber jacket.
A Federation officer and Princess Ariel? Hey, I live in New York City, so I see weirder couples than this just by going out for a paper.
ELFQUEST is my all-time favorite comics series (but only when drawn by co-creator Wendy Pini) and despite three decades of convention-going, I never expected to see someone pull off one of the ELFQUEST elves anywhere near as well as this petite lovely did. And not only that, she's representing as my favorite of the Wolfriders, namely Nightfall. (Damn, I wish that had been in better focus!)
Nightfall as seen from the back. This was a perfect 10 out of a possible 10, even if she didn't have the character's signature bow, and the only way she could have ruled more was if she rode in on an actual wolf. Well done, lady!
...and he scores points for his fantastically cheesy ankle-wings.
With my old friend Marrus. Goddammit, why did she have to move away from the Big Apple?
When it comes to the old school superheroes, I side with the Marvel Family every time!
Turning female was the best thing that's happened to Loki in decades!
Deadpool and Loki both work so much better when portrayed by women!
The ageless villainy of BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA's Lo Pan.
Old school Leatherface gets ready to knock out the evening's main course.
Lady Death and Mister Sinister. Sweet jumpin' Jesus in a basket of chicken...
A very toothsome Jessica Rabbit. What I wouldn't give to see Sukihoshi in this getup...Yowza!
As I photographed this Iron Man, some dumbass walked by and said to her kid, "Look, honey. A robot!"
Hunter S. Thompson once more walked among us and I, for one, was glad of that.
An amusing Homer and Marge, but points are subtracted for Marge not rocking a two and a half-foot tall blue syrofoam hairdo.
A.C. and one of her many adoring fans. (NOTE: ladies, sailor hats on chicks are hot. Remember that!)
The upcoming Johnny Depp Mad Hatter and a young Jedi.
The best Jedi Mind Trick ever — double click to read her shirt — but such techniques don't work on the likes of Yer Bunche.
