Where's the Claw? The Lobster's got to have his claw logo! Without that and the cowl (and trenchcoat), I have no idea how anyone would recognize you.

Still hoping he makes an appearance in the 2nd film.

Did you see the one where the pokemons (both "good" and "bad') got separated from their humans and ended up bonding at a sushi bar run by a psy-duck in the middle of some rain forest?

They spoke their own names (as pokemon tend to do) over and over and...well for about five minutes. The gold was: there were subtitles. I was waking up the house and cackling like the Joker.

Oh Jesus. *hangs head and shakes it*

I haven't got the typing in me, but please understand- I tried. I really really tried to do the Lobster Johnson costume. The goggles are the only thing that turned out right.

And I will weep blood if he isn't in by the third.

What did you think of WonderCon? You've gone before? I'm heading out tomorrow afternoon.

You didn't happen to use a camera phone to take record the X-Files 2 teaser, did you?

Hey, Kudama, I saw you at WonderCon by the entrance. I went to get tickets and walked back out since tickets were only $5 after 3pm. Thought to say hi to you but then you were gone.

It was interesting. A few people were dressed. Lot of comics to buy obviously. Most of the celebrities were gone including Lou, dangit, but worth $5.

If you happened to see a Willy Wonka wandering around, possibly with a pirate wench, a dragon in leather armor, or Jack Sparrow, that was me.

This is me with my friend Scabrous Vermicelli. I've actually crammed this dragon into the back of my Focus without any major damage.



No, I never saw the Oompah Loompah. I heard he was looking for me, though.

No, I didn't. You must have left early. Nice costume. There was a father and son who looked pretty good in Indiana Jones costumes.

Reminds me of the Robot Chicken episode with Pikachu and Squirtle.

I met Mike Mignola and made an ass of myself asking for a drawing of Hellboy with a cat. Also briefly talked to Matt Wagner and embarrassingly related the tale of when my friend and myself used to refer to each other as Stanis and Lazlo (Grackleflints from Mage) in our Horticulture class in 7th grade.

Yes. I was Stanis. I've always wanted to fly despite my fear of falling.

Yes...I'm a geek.

Faun Tumnus was also there.

I'd have pounced him, had I run into him.

Did anyone else catch Appleseed Ex Machina, Justice League New Frontier or the WB Spiderman?

I was really happy with all of them.

I got to ask them why The Vulture was purple in the Spiderman cartoon and they said he had too many green villains. I loled.

Justice League was surprisingly adult (and bloody). JL spoiler:
Spoiler:
Superman and Batman are having a conversation when...enter Robin in a very suggestive outfit acting like a dork. Superman arches an eye brow and Batman, in a weary tone, says, "Don't ask."


I could not believe they went there.

Mllefoo's costume has paid for itself by now.....

I'm going as Sweeney Todd next year. Might as well stick with the Depp theme. A friend of mine is going to be Mrs Lovett, so it may just work out.
